Product Overview

The Bolt Down Bracket System enables pergola owners to mount their pergola safely and securely to a wood deck or cement patio. Simply measure your footprint and bolt the galvanized steel brackets into place. Insert 4 x 4 (10cm X 10cm) pressure treated wood posts (purchased separately) into the brackets and screw them in place. Slide your pergola posts over the wood posts, and screw the pergola posts into the wood. The result is a lasting installation that is safe and rigid. This mounting system was specifically designed for Vita brand pergolas. We highly recommend that if you are installing any of these vinyl pergolas on a flat surface, you purchase this kit. The mounting system comes with brackets and 1.5” (3.8cm) self-tapping screws. The Bolt Down Brackets are guaranteed for 5 years against defects. Important Note: DO NOT use the bolt down bracket system for installing the pergola over concrete pavers, patio stones, or interlocking bricks

These bolt down brackets are engineered to specifically work with pergolas designed and sold by New England Arbors. The 10X14 cedar pergola is not one of our products and I'm not sure how you would attach it to your deck. New England Arbors pergolas will never need to be painted or stained and are covered with our 20 year manufacturer's guarantee.

I have a concrete patio in So. Florida. How would I mount the posts to the concrete?

Asked by Jerry October 6, 2019

Answers

I bought bolt-down brackets from inside the store. They were easy to mount. Once everything was measured and we had correct distance between the posts, I drilled through the holes on the bracket with the concrete drill bit and then screwed in the concrete screws. Make sure you had a good impact drill to drill in the concrete screws. measuring took longer than the drilling. Easy. My pergola is not moving, very secure.

Yes, but keep in mind they are for a 4 by 4 post. I bought them not knowing that. My pergola post measured 6 by 6. I’ll use them for something.

This product did the job I expected it to do.
We purchased these brackets to bolt our Pergola to our cement patio. the hardest part was drilling through the cement for the screws, but once that was done the brackets work great for stabilizing the pergola.

Um not so much - I bought the bracket because they were recommended to be used with the Backyard Discovery Pergola - they do not FIT this pergola though - so I did not have the need for them - I highly ADVISE you remove that link on the website That said- they LOOK like they would work well for posts that are 4 x 4

These will not work with Yardistry Madiison Pergola. They are recommended as an item to buy with it when you do the online purchase but won't work with it. They are very sturdy steel and would probably work great but are for a 4x4 post. .

We just completed the install of the Camalot Pergola and overall are very satisfied with the quality and look. The louvers are larger in scale than they appeared on the website photos which in my opinion was a pleasant surprise. We needed to retrofit the kit for our second level deck area, so we hired a handyman for the installation. With all of the additional measuring and cutting, it took a week to complete, but if you are setting up the kit with no adjustments to its size, then it can be completed over a weekend. I would suggest two people for the job if we had to do it over again. Mandy
