About This Product

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

    Q:Will this fit a double 2x8 beam ?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello Adam, this is McKenzie from Simpson Strongtie. On the EPB the smallest we carry will be the EPB44, and the width on this is 3 9/16. If you decided to go with this, you would have to take into consideration the space and some kind of shim. The member would have to act as one, and it would be per designer to determine how this is done. Thanks.

      Q:I purchased the EPB44PHDG 4x4 post bracket and #10 x 1 1/2? screws (these screws do not fit thru the bracket holes). Which Simpson Strong Tie screws do you recommend?
      by|Jul 21, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello William, this is Ricardo with SImpson. The SD10112 screws may be slightly larger than the holes on the EPB44PHDG, but should begin to drive into the wood once some pressure is applied to the drill. If you would like to discuss further, please contact us at 800/999/5099.

        These post bases allowed us to fine tune adjustments to deck beam heights. Much appreciated.

        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.

        I use these to support beams when I’m doing repairs in a crawlspace. I can’t think of a better product to use in this application. . Highly recommend.
