Product Overview

  • Dual-purpose post cap/base
  • Secures bottom of posts or columns to concrete
  • Great for use on patios and decks
Post and column bases secure the bottom of posts or columns to concrete and are perfect for decks or patio covers. Models are available for attaching to existing hardened concrete, wet concrete, as well as wood. The BCS allows for the connection of 2-2xs to a 4x post or 3-2xs to a 6x post. Double-shear nailing between beam and post gives added strength.
  • Provides a positive connection for a post to a wood deck
  • Stronger than angled nailing or screw fastening
  • Reduces the chance of the post splitting and eliminates nailing into end grain
  • Not recommended for non top-supported installations (such as fences or unbraced carports)
  • Nominal size: Double 2x beam, 4x post
  • Made from 18-gauge steel
  • Galvanized (G90) for extra corrosion resistance
  • Install with 10d common nails or #9 x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive® SD screws

Questions & Answers

I need to connect a 4x4 to another 4x4 would this work?

I don't need any details about load or building standards I just need info on whether or not this is suitable to connect 2 4x4s thanks. -Davdavy
Asked by: davdavy
No. These particular brackets are designed to fit on a post on one end (3.5 inches) and receive a double 2x on the other (3 inches).
