Do i only need one of these, per post? I want to put small 3' foot posts on top of a low to the ground deck to string some rope to make a nautical style railing.. The posts at this point have to sit on top of the deck.. This is what i would use to secure each post the floor of the deck, correct?
Asked by: cory
This is what you would use to anchor the post to concrete. Keep shopping for a better choice. There should be better choices out there. You could screw it into place via a Kreg system and use the wood plugs to cover the screws and then build a simple but decorative base frame around the 4 x 4.

Can these be used on 3.5 x 3.5 landscaping timber? Thanks

Can these be used on 3.5 x 3.5 landscaping timber? Thanks
Asked by: Boogie
I wouldn't. It would make the project look cheap and done in desperation. If you are talking about those light weight landscaping ties with the rounded sides that are meant for ground work of some type; the answer is no! The ties have no structural integrity/strength. They are not meant to be used as structural lumber. They were made to look nice as a border, on the ground.
