Do you have a stand-off base that has a hole for the anchor/bolt to continue up into the center o...

Asked by Bill September 14, 2020

Answers

This item does not come with a stand-off base with a hole. If you don’t want to cut the anchor bolt off to fit below the stand-off base provided, you would need to drill it.

Can you use this base for a mailbox post?

Asked by ShanB September 6, 2020

Answers

I believe it can be as long as you pour an adequate footing/pier that contains a 5/8” anchor bolt and you use the Simpson Strong-Tie Timber Bolts through the base of your post.

what other store has post base for 6x6

Is it availble in 4 x 6 ? Dark brown ?

Asked by Mike June 16, 2020
1
Answer

This base is not offered in a 4x6 size, but a APB44 may work for you. For post bases that do not attach to all four sides of the post, the post may be wider than the base and overhang the base in one direction (e.g., a 4x6 post on an APB44) as long as the bearing area provided by the base is sufficient for the post. The Outdoor Accents products are only available in the black powder-coating. Thank you!

Will a 4x4 pvc sleeve slide over this tie for a rail post on a deck?

Asked by Tony May 29, 2020
1
Answer

I'm not completely clear on the application, but I wanted to clarify that the APB44 is to be installed on concrete. Also, except for the MPBZ moment post base, post bases do not provide adequate resistance to prevent members from rotating about the base and are therefore not recommended for non-top-supported installations (such as fences, railings or unbraced carports). Please see the technical bulletin T-C-GRDRLPST20 "Code-Compliant Guardrail Post Connections" on our website for information on deck rail post installations. Thank you!

what size concrete anchor is recommended

Asked by afann May 23, 2020

Answer

The APB66 requires a 5/8" diameter anchor; it is up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to specify the anchor bolt type, length and embedment. Thank you!

Can we use this with vertical slate fencing 8’ high?

Answer

This will fit 6x6 nominal post. Not sure what you mean by "vertical slate fencing". Are you referring to the post for the fence? Are your slates 5.75 inch thick? Again this is for post only

Hello. Some people actually drill hole in post slightly larger than bolt for added support.

Can this 4x4 Post Base be used with 4x6 posts? TIA.

Asked by Mike May 16, 2020
1
Answer

Absolutely. That is exactly what I used when I built my pergola. Of course you have to position them on the "4" inch side of the post, but being held down thru the bottom that should be no problem.

The parts arrived in timely fashion and HD effectively communicated the progress of the order. Only disappointment was HD did NOT carry the shorter-length companion fasteners I wanted, so I had to get them from a different big-box supplier.
