Q:Are bolts and washers and screws included or do I have to purchase them separately?
by|Jan 23, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Norm, Thank you for your question. The ABW is not supplied with bolts or screws, the washer is supplied with the part though. The screws should be the Strong-Drive® SD CONNECTOR Screw, specifically part number SD9112. Screws not manufactured by Simpson Strong-Tie are not supported in our products. If you have more questions, please contact our Customer Service team at 800-999-5099

    Q:What is the recommended length of anchor for this base?
    by|Dec 4, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  ​Hi Dan, thank you for your message. This is Ricardo with Simpson Strong-Tie. We provide the diameter of the anchor, which in this case is 1/2", but the length is determined by the designer of record. We do offer a technical bulletin with Titen HD options that are for wind or low seismic design. For high seismic design you will need to have the designer of record callout the anchor type and length. If you need more information or have additional questions, please contact the Simpson Strong-Tie Customer Service team at 800-999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you. https://ssttoolbox.widen.net/view/pdf/0smhqae1q1/TEB-PSTB23.pdf?t.download=true&u=cjmyin

      Q:What size nails do you use to secure this item to a 4x4 post and do you need to use all of the holes or just one on each side?
      by|Oct 23, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello Scottsman, my name is Colin with Simpson Strong-Tie. The ABW44Z Adjustable and Standoff Post Base requires eight 0.148" x 3" (10d) nails, typically hot dip galvanized for exterior use, 2 on each of the four sides. You could also use the Strong Drive #9 x 1-1/2" (SD9112) screws and achieve the same allowable load values. If you need more information or have additional questions, please contact the Simpson Strong-Tie Customer Service team at 800-999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you.​​

        Q:Is this the correct bracket to mount a post to concrete for a small room addition?
        by|May 15, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Gregg, thank you for your message. We want to make sure we address your question regarding ABW Adjustable Post Base. The choice of which post base to use for your addition has a few factors at play you will need to answer. The demand loads on the base in download and uplift as well as any lateral load are the main factors. We would be happy to discuss this with you and answer additional questions, please contact the Simpson Strong-Tie Customer Service team at 800-999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you. -Stacy

          The store is run down, dirty, disorganized and primarily unhelpful and often rude staff members. Check out is slow and even the parking lot is littered with garbage and debris. Honestly one the worst branches in the DMV

          Hi Jack, this McKenzie from Simpson Strongtie. We apologize we cannot address that issue. Please contact The Home Dep​ot Customer Service at 800-466-3337 for further assistance.

          Thanks. SimpsonStrongTie
            Nice finish
            Easy installation, nice finish, overall good quality. However, adjustment of the post is very limited, if you are not able to also rotate the post after it is installed in the bracket.
