Great quality metal, looks like it should hold up well...
Great quality metal, looks like it should hold up well in the weather and the appearance is classy and industrial. The bolts and screws are a much faster, easier way to get a finished look quickly with the structural strength of standard bolts.
    Love the products. They are a great addition to our deck. Would use them again

    Super easy to install and they look great. One thing...
    Super easy to install and they look great. One thing that you should pay attention to is that you will need both the 5-1/2" and 3-1/2" structural wood screws to install these along with plenty of the hex washers. Also note that they are not symmetric so that you can install two of them on the same corner without the screws hitting each other so pay attention to the orientation of the holes even since there aren't many distinct markings on them and the hole pattern difference is small.
