Would it be okay to sandwich 2 deck joists between these for a low deck? Obviously the piers would have to be precisely set to the correct height and it may need to be shimmed on the sides. This concept would do away with the 4x4 posts all together due to the height constraint.
Asked by: Nik
This is exactly what I'm doing. I will sink these into the concrete as it is setting. I will place my double beam 2 x 8s into it. the bracket will hold roughly three 2 x 8 so i will use an 8 inch piece of 2 x 8 as a filler. No need for 4 x 4s.

Is this bracket recommended for fence posts

I plan on using this bracket with the 4X4 cedar fence post for a picket fence.
Asked by: Fencebuilder
No. This brace does not provide lateral (side to side) support. It is designed to support a 4x4 with downward forces, think hold up a deck.

I purchased this product for an outdoor deck. With the plate sitting on the concrete will there be a problem with rot using pressure treated lumber?
Asked by: MG
I don’t think so. Just make sure concrete is raised above ground a little.
