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.

Why would I buy this instead of just toe nailing? I have 3 cedar cross rails for a 6ft tall fence and treated posts that are every 6 feet. Would it add strength and/or limit the risk of rotting?
Asked by: jbro
if you have a framing air nailer that could work - using 8's . The downside is in the long term, and if the wood shrinks the toenail might lose a little stability and strength. IMO screws hold better than nails so I opt for 1 1/2 to set and check for level, then add 2 1/2" when working in something larger than a 4 x 4 post

FB 2 in. x 4 in. ZMAX Galvanized Fence Bracket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 102.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used these ties to position 2 inch x 4... I used these ties to position 2 inch x 4 inches I was using for supports in making 16 inches x 8 foot shelving. While I was happy with them for the most part, and really liked the 4 holes on the back to use for various positions, I didn't like the fact that there was only one hole to use on each of the two sides. Also, as I was using screws to attach these ties, these screws took up valuable space to attach the 2 inch x 4 inch pieces of wood inside of these ties on the sides. I think that these ties could have been a little more sturdy, but over all these ties are getting the job done, and for a very reasonable price

For a first time fence builder, these brackets made it easy to assemble and secure my 2X4s tight against 4X4 post. I wanted to use screws to secure my post and 2X4s so choose well. I had to change my original screws to a less recessed head screw to lay more flush with the bracket. Happy building!

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.
