Questions & Answers

Adjustable? Up and down? sideways?

Can I put the bolt in the wet concrete then move the base to adjust to exactly where the post needs to be before I tighten the base down?
Asked by: builder1
How I did it was I put the bolt on to just the top of the threads showing. I put the washer on and cut a X in the box and then set the bolt in concrete to adjust on my posts for my framing. For my post on the stair rail I put the box on top of the cardboard and adjusted to make sure I had the right position and let it cure in the concrete. The box portion I tore out and then tightened down the bolt and set my post. Worked great for me.

Description says for 6" x 6" nominal post size. Will this post base work with a rough cut 6" x 6" post with actual 6" x 6" dimensions?
Asked by: Horace
As per my research: There are 2 different types of 6x6's - a "rough," as you mentioned, which is closer to 6x6 and the other which is actually 5-1/2 x 5-1/2. As I understand, Simpson makes two different post bases: a "rough," which is designated by the "R" symbol and actually 6" x 5-3/16", and the "Z" model without the "R", which is 5-1/2 x 5-1/2", which will not fit the rough. In an ideal situation, you would either need to utilize the non-rough wood, or purchase the post bases with the "R" (or Rough) designator; although, people have shaved the wood where it meets the base.

Can this be used without using the bolt into the concrete just to keep the post off the concrete to keep moisture down?
Asked by: Rick
but I need to be able to move the post around and this base looks like it would keep the post from sitting in water... Surely there is some sort of 'stand' if this is not it? Any ideas?

What size wedge anchor diameter is required?

What size wedge anchor diameter is required?
Asked by: LB
I would not use anything smaller than a 1" expansion anchor minimum of 4" long. This is presuming you are attaching the standoff on a concrete support.
