Product Details

Simpson Strong-Tie Pipe Grip Ties make it easy to attach wood fence rails to metal fence posts. Galvanized fence posts typically last longer than wood posts, extending the life of the fence by helping to avoid the common problem of rotting fence posts. Now you can get the look of a wood fence with the durability of steel posts. The PGT is suitable for standard applications as well as corners and splices.
  • Install on 2-in (2-3/8-in outside diameter) vertical pipes, offsetting corners to allow for the correct rail alignment
  • Use 3 to 4 PGTs per pipe; line up to string line
  • Field-bend PGT flanges to fit corner and angled conditions (bend one time only)
  • Made from 12-gauge steel
  • Galvanized (G90) for extra corrosion resistance
  • PGT attaches to rails with Simpson Strong-Tie strong-drive sds 1/4 in. x 1-1/2 in. HDG wood screws (not included)

Q:What is the difference between these and the NON-ZMAX brackets? In the specifications they both say the exact same thing; both are 12-gauge steel & galvanized (G90), but these are more than double the price.

Answer This Question

A:  Hey Will, This is Ricardo with Simpson Strong-Tie. The G90 zinc-galvanized coating is considered a low level of corrosive resistant coating where as the ZMAX is a medium level of corrosion resistant coating having approximately double the zinc per square foot than the G90 material. If you would like to discuss this further you can reach out to us at 800-445-6937. Have a fantastic day!

    A:  Zmax is necessary (180 rating) for today's PT lumber.

      Q:I need to use a 10' pipe, and 2" EMT (actual o.d. 2 3/16") is cheaper here than a custom cut 2" fence post (actual od 2 3/8"). Will the pinch bolt take up the extra 3/8" and still grip the pipe tightly enough?

      Answer This Question

      A:  The extra 3/16" shouldn't be a problem. May not be snug snug but close enough, depending on where the pole is.

        A:  Yes it can 

        by|Jul 20, 2022

          A:  Hello Matt, this is Stacy with Simpson Strong-Tie. The PGT2 can be installed into the wide face of a 2x4 since it is installed with 1 1/2" SDS screws. Only recommendation is the pipe needs to be 2" (2 3/8" outside diameter). If you have any questions please feel free to call us at (88) 999-5099. We look forward to speaking with you.

            Q:will this work on pipe that is 2.25 in diameter?
            by|Dec 29, 2020
            2 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  PGT2Z-R should work for 2 1/4" outside diameter pipe. Factory inside diameter for that connector is 2 3/8". The extra 1/8" can be adjusted by the draw screw supplied with the part.

            by|Dec 30, 2020

              A:  Yes, the opening is larger than that, you tighten it to secure it in place

              Work Great
              These Simpson Strong-Tie Galvanized Pipe Grip Ties for 2" Pipes (2-3/8" OD) work fantastic. As you can see I used these to support pipes that would be under tension and bolted to a wall to support a sun screen cover, and they did exactly what I wanted them to do. With these supports the pipes don't move at all, and same with the tension adjustments that get made on a regular basis. Bolt them to the wall and then tighten the through bolt to lock the pipe into place, it's as simple as that.

              An option for end posts
              These Simpson brackets have one advantage over the Oz-Post ones -- you can cut off one whole side tab and use the bracket very close to the end of a board with an end post. See photos. I suppose these also have the advantage of not having two clamp bolts & nuts sticking out, although the Oz-Post ones seem generally more robust. The main disadvantage is that these brackets hold the wood board further out from the post, because of the space needed for the clamping bolt.

              Super strong clamp
              super strong clamp with tightening screw to maximize retention on pipe ... my installation had a fence post which was just a bit too small for this model, the item was returned ... nonetheless, excellent quality and good value
