Product Overview

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 cast-in-place EPB series provides a secure connection to the concrete and the code-required 1-in standoff to help prevent rot at the post end.
  • Added standoff adjustability to suit a variety of applications
  • Install in wet concrete
  • Provides the code-required 1-in standoff when properly installed, allows up to 2-1/2-in of standoff above concrete (if desired)
  • Not recommended for non top-supported installations (such as fences or unbraced carports)
  • Nominal post size: 4x4
  • Hot-dip galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Install with 3/4 in. Dia anchor bolt and 16d common nails or 10 x 1-1/2 in. strong-drive SD screws

Just installed four of these for a ground level deck. Worked well. There were some welding bumps on the inside, but the wood would easily conform around them.

Worked like a charm!
I used this to shore up a sagging deck. The ability to use a crescent wrench to slowly work the deck back to level was easy on the back and the mind. I highly recommend these for this purpose. They fit perfect on a pressure treated 4x4.

      adjustable support posts
      Another reviewer mentioned using these to make adjustable support posts. I have followed that example which has simplified my project and allowed me to use one hydraulic jack and these post bases mounted in pier blocks to act as jack stands while the cement sets under the permanent posts.

        The post base is very sturdy and is easy to use. The original 4x4 posts that support my deck were rotting at ground level. I used these post bases along with a short length of new 4x4 and cement deck blocks next to each original post. I am confident that this combination will support my floating deck for years to come.

        The metal it's self is great but the width of the shaft is too wide for home depots standard core drilled concrete cylinders and therefore you must drill a wider hole to place the post base.

        These strong ties are great! I actually used them in a non-conventional way. I fabricated my own jack posts to add an extra beam under my house to remove bounce out of my floors. I used a 4x4 post on a deck block and then drilled a hole in the other end of the 4x4 to accommodate the threaded bolt. Then, I put the metal portion around my doubled 2x8 beam with some 1/4” plywood spacers and used the nut to jack the beam up. I place my homemade jack posts every 8ft the whole length of my crawl space. They helped save a ton of money over buying pre-made jack posts. These strong ties are very well built and very strong. They were just the ticket to do the job. I will be adding another beam down the other side of my crawl space and will definitely buy 10 more.

        Worked well for posts under 4 feet in height but for taller posts I recommend brackets that can be set deeper into the concrete for greater stability
