We do not recommend the DJT for below grade applications; there are many variables in relation to soils and we do not have supporting data for this application. Thank you!
We do not have a capacity when installed above the joist; we can only provide allowable load values based on how the product was designed, tested and intended to be installed. Thank you!
NO ! I would never do that nor would I use 4x4 posts to carry any beam ! Use a 6x6 and and cut out a pocket for your bean then bolt thru ! I just wouldent trust this, also code now prevemts it

Yes, this product recommends installing with 16d common nails or #10 x 2-1/2 in. strong-drive SD screws or a minimum of 5/8 in. diameter machine bolts to the post.
Based on your description, its not clear if you are wanting to use the DJT14Z as it is intended to be used. This product is designed to attach 2x deck joists to the side of 4x or larger support posts (please see install pictures on product page). If you are looking for a double 2x12 joist hanger, please see our catalog/website for options. Thank you!
