I used this product to reinforce my privacy fence connection at the stringer to post . In my case the stringers were pulled away from the post and the fence was severely weaken. I removed the protruding nails and installed this tie inline with the stringers and around the post. This support worked very well I would recommend this tie to any one with fence problems to reinforce the stringer/post connection. This fixed my severe stringer connection.
