Questions & Answers

Can this bracket be used with 2 x 2's?

Can this bracket be used with 2 x 2's?
Asked by: Susie
Yes, but be careful with how much weight it must hold. I used them for fence panels, and the panels have structural integrity alone. These brackets melt like wax when struck by hammer, inserting screws with a power drill, or pretty much any physical application of force that using them might entail.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First time building a fence and used these to attach the rails to the posts. They're easy enough ... First time building a fence and used these to attach the rails to the posts. They're easy enough to install and use... but, as other have stated the heads of the recommended screws create a gap between the ends of the rails and the post/bracket. The gap is about 3/8". Not a huge deal but definitely not great. I wish I had used a router to notch the rails so that they would have fit over the screw heads to get them flush. The screw heads also get in the way when attaching the pickets/palings to the rail. I actually did notch the boards so that they fit over the screws better. The other issue is that the brackets aren't very deep so the screws that go into the rails are very close to the ends of the rails. Maybe 1/2" or less from the ends. I had multiple rails split... so that sucked. Still, unless this fence falls down in the next few years, I'd use these again.
