Answer This Question

A:  I'd say you could get them around a 1-1/2" post.

A:  The braces do not connect easily because the bolt is only as long as it needs to be in a perfect world. The bolt holes should be oversized so the bolt can get started at an angle if needed. I mean to an engineer its an obvious change worth doing to make installation easier. The braces also does not hold the posts in a square and plumb position. Basically the braces suck

    A:  Yes, but you can't see to tighten the clamp at the bottom if it is in the water. You have to do it by feel.

            Here's how to do it better, cheaper
            The pole is aluminum (not Galvanized steel), which is nice since it will never corrode. The end clamps, however, are low-quality galvanized. Ours rusted and fell off after one winter. I then replaced those with 1.5" dia Stainless Steel Muffler Clamps (buy from local auto parts store or online such as eBay) for a few bucks each. Now it works perfectly. Given the chance to do it all over again, I'll just buy some aluminum tubing, flatten two ends, drill holes (aluminum is soft and easy to drill), and use stainless steel 1.5" dia muffler clamps. That will cut the cost in half and it will last forever. Note: put some silicone grease on the threads and you'll never have trouble getting them off in the future.

              Clamps to post too small!
              Most dock poles are 2 “ in diameter. This brace comes with clamps that are for 1 1/2 “ posts. Stupid just to save 5 cents! I now have to go buy the proper size clamps before I can use it. The braces are very light weight and over priced. Not happy with purchase.

                Bought one last year order these this year. The hardware was cheaper, the ends were not rounded so you could not install on angle without bending the bracket. Then you could not titan them up. Hardware is pathetic. Better off making your own supports. DO NOT BUY!!!!

                Cannot be mounted at an angle as in the picture. When mounted at an angle the support bar invades the bracket area that fits over the vertical dock pipe. You would have to grind part of the support bar away and that would weaken the whole system.
