Can I use this kit for an exterior application? I can't tell if the metal is stainless or galvanized. Tganks

Asked by: Tw
The description states that the connectors are "G185 Galvanized". I googled this and found an article that explains this and states that it will hold up to the not only the outdoor environment but also the chemicals in pressure treated wood. I'm planning to build a "potting" bench for my garden and I'm going to use this kit once I figure out the dimensions and the lumber requirements. Here's the link to the article: https://galvanizeit.org/education-and-resources/resources/technical-faq-dr-galv/g185-coating-and-pressure-treated-wood

Where is the "deal"?

This is not a deal at all, unless you consider the overpriced screws a big advantage, then you save maybe $5. What you lose is the flexibility to design what you really want. I don't get it. Is this supposed to actually be $25?
Asked by: gjp
The kit includes 2X4 brackets which are $6.51 if you buy them individually and not the cheaper 2X brackets. The cost for 8 brackets alone is a little over $52 and that doesn't include the cost for the screws. It is a "deal". I bought the kit many years ago to build a workbench and it is the sturdiest thing in my house...well worth the money. I'm planning to buy another kit for another project as soon as I figure out the dimensions so I can know what lumber I'll need.

Workbench or Shelving Hardware Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 125.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and easy to use These kits are easy to use to build just about anything that uses 2x4 lumber. I used it to build a 4'x8' chicken coop, where the bottom part is the chicken "yard" and the top level is where the nest boxes and roosting pole will be. The kit included everything I need to put together both the "ground" level of the chicken yard and the floor of the "upstairs" level. Note that most projects and pictures of this kit show the hangers being used with the straight edge on the upper side, but for the coop, these had to be reversed on the ground level so that the straight edge is parallel to the bottom of the 2x4s (as you can see in the photo). I wasn't sure if they would be quite as strong mounted this way, but the entire structure seems very solid. I do a lot of carpentry and considered making the coop without this kit, but after doing some project planning and comparison shopping I realized that the kit is really a good value for what's included, and it's a great way to assemble a sturdy project in short time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything You Need This is a great kit. We recently moved here from another state and I wanted a workbench for the garage. After looking at several prefab units, I came across this kit and after downloading and looking over the assembly instructions from the Home Depot website (PDF file), I ordered it. All of the hardware is included in the box and the instructions include measurements for the lumber. I had the 2x4s cut to size and found the exact size plywood and pegboard pre-cut. I took the kit and the lumber home and got to work. I completed the project a few minutes at a time over two or three days, but could probably have finished it in a couple of hours or so if I'd done it all at once. About the only thing that could be improved is a listing of which screws are to be used for each section, but it wasn't hard to figure out, based on the number of screws received. I think it turned out great. I mounted a power strip to the side, added a vice and stuck an old reading lamp on the top. It's more solid than any prefab I could have bought and it meets all my needs.
