Answer This Question

A:  as long as its securely mounted to something......I put up 5 for roof supports.... using 4x4's worked great....

A:  No. For our sunsails we used 4x4s with concrete 2ft deep but it's pretty windy where I live.

      A:  Yes, but the real advantage of these is to retrofit to existing surfaces. If you are pouring piers why not cast in your pier bases? Also, the size seems a bit large for (4) 4X posts. Those are some big spans. I would check the recommended footing specs for the structure you are planning

        A:  Yes, they have a hole in the bottom center where you can put a concrete J hook to attach it to the pier.

              A:  Correct..You need to furnish you own screws for that......5 concealed holes....

              by|Nov 12, 2022

              A:  There are 4 plates that fit onto the base plate, one each side of the post. Each plate is attached to the post with 2 screws. This locks the post in place.

              by|May 4, 2023

              A:  The (8) screws hold the plates onto the post and the plates key into the base. Very sturdy if installed correctly. Just make sure you choose the right anchors. / screws for the base.

              by|May 3, 2023

              A:  When the post base is mounted down to the concrete properly and the 4 sides are mounted with the screws packed with the product, there should not be any movement.

                A:  Hi Aswonka, the side plate is secured to the base plate at the bottom. Then the side plate is attached to the post using the bolts. That is how the post is supported. This is very strong. On the web page move your mouse over the three pictures under the large picture of the product. Go to the one that has the video and click on it. That shows you how all the pieces fit together. This is a beautiful product.

                Q:Good afternoon. I'm concerned that the post will move if someone leans on it. I will be securing the base to a new concrete patio. do the bolts hold the post in place to the base along with the tabs, forging a solid connection? I am a DIYer, and I'm probably over-thinkin' it, but why won't the post move?

                A:  Those four plates and the screws that screw them to each side of the post lock the post into position where you determine it is vertical. Before you put those plates and that post on, you mounted the bottom plate through 5 holes in that bottom plate with anchor bolt in center and anchor screws in the 4 surrounding holes of each plate. The plates are heavy thick steal, they are not cheap by any sense of the word. This is a very solid mounting design thoughtfully engineered. It impressed me.

                  A:  The base is secured to the concrete with concrete anchors, and the post is secured to the base with four screws. We firmed up our railing by painting a small, inconspicuous type of joist hanger and using them at each end of the railing. We attached them to the brick, and attached the railing to the hanger. It came out pretty close to rock-solid.

                      A:  The base plate of this item is anchored to the desired surface before the post is secured in place.
