Questions & Answers

how do you properly install this structure? PBA44AZ Simpson Tie

While i know you put in the concrete do you put rebar through the holes on the underside that will be in the cement. Do you need to run a vertical rod as well? What is reccomeded to go through post on the top side? A nut and bolt or a set of screws. Will it support the Gates corner post? Thank you.
Asked by: Gate Post PBS44AZ Simpson mount
Pour cement and place Post Base level in cement. Let set for a couple of hours then place 4x4 within vertical braces and screw 4x4 into the post base.
