Questions & Answers

Can these be used to connect 6x6 post to double 2x10 beam

Asked by: Jmig
Yes, you use two of them and fasten with 10D nails, 16 per bracket. The other bracket you should look at is the AC6, which is nailed with 16D nails and is appreciably stronger. Both the AC6 and LPCZ brackets need to be installed in pairs across the beam, so buy 2 per post.

Is LPC6Z sold as a pair or is it only 1 side?

Asked by: Bret
No, yes. You will need to buy 2 to have a pair. The photo is correct. All Simpson products are sold as single units, even if you need 2 per application.

AC compatible?

Asked by: MKT
It is not clear what you are referring to when you say "AC". Are you trying to confirm if it is compatible with treated wood (i.e. ACQ-C, ACQ-D, ACQ-D Carbonate, ACZA, etc.)? The LPC6Z has the Z-MAX finish (G185) which provides a medium level of corrosion protection. Please see the Corrosion section of our website to determine the recommended finish for your specific application based on environment, type of treated wood being used, chemical retention, etc. Thank you!

Customer Reviews

ZMAX 16-Gauge Galvanized 6x Adjustable Post Cap is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is junk just like the 6x6 post base...Dont buy Do not buy this product. It does not have enough strength for anything. The profile is very low as well. So, if you are using a large beam across this post, this product will NOT handle it. Better to get something made or use something else. Also, do not buy the 6 x 6 post base.... they sell... That is the biggest waste of money for 20 bucks each.
