Product Details

The RPBZ retrofit post base is designed to reinforce existing posts and columns. The single, versatile model will fit on any size post consisting of a double 2x4 or larger. RPBZ can also be used to reinforce new post-base connections, such as braced carports, patio covers, decks and other structures. The RPBZ can be installed with the CPS composite plastic standoff to meet a 1" post standoff code requirement. A single RPBZ can be installed on a post that is flush to a corner, and two RPBZs can be installed at away-from-edge conditions to fortify the post-base connection to resist both wind and seismic forces.

      A:  I used them on a Landscape timber which is 2.5 in x 3.5 in. So I would say yes it would work on a 3" x 5"

      by|Oct 4, 2022

        A:  Yes if you use 2 for each post

        by|Oct 4, 2022

          A:  You can use two of the on opposite sides.

          by|Oct 4, 2022

            A:  Hello Norman, this is Stacy with Simpson Strong-Tie. None of our post bases are rated to be used with 3" x 5" rough lumber. You might want to consider using a 4x4 minimum. If you have any questions please call us at (800) 999-5099.

                  Great item to secure anything.
                  This worked great for securing my vinyl partition privacy fence to hide my recycle bins to my cement patio! Suggested by a Home Depot Associate!

                    I had to repair my mailbox posr where the bottom 4” was damaged from termite. I cut off the damaged part and installed two post bases to anchor it to the brick base. I was able to anchor them securely without any problem of getting loose or mitigate from further termite damages without the need for anchoring with cement. At the base, I used the two 2” long bolts to each of the 3/8” holes on each side. I love the fact that having two split anchor base will fit almost any 3-4 inch wooden post.
