Questions & Answers

Attaching to existing beam

I am replacing 4X4 patio posts that are attached to 4x6 traverse beams. Are these suitable and what is best way to place them . It looks like I would have to attach to the existing beam first then slide the posts in from the rear? or is there a better product?
Asked by: james
I don't think this is the piece you want. This is to attach a 4x (3-1/2") to a double 2x (3"). I looks like you want to attach a 4x to a 4x. There is a part for this but I don't know the part number off the top of my head. I suggest that you search the parts paying very close attention to the description of what sizes it attaches to. How you attach it will depend on the details of your particular situation.
