Questions & Answers

When this is embedded in concrete, how is it adjustable?

Asked by: Dave
This product needs to be floating so you can adjust the nut. Not sure why "Simpson Strong" suggested putting into wet concrete. That negates the whole point of the product, which is to be adjustable. This is to be floated in dried (hard) cement. You can usually buy a cement pier (pre-poured) at Home Depot with a hole the perfect size for this product.

are these good for fence posts or will it become wiggly?

Asked by: Roger
Not good for fence posts. The post must be braced at angles, such as a corner post. Otherwise, what's to keep it from just tipping over? No, don't use for normal fence posts.

Do you have to screw the post base unto the hole existing in the concrete pier blocks or can you hammer them in?

Slides right in, snug.
