Used these post anchors for a pergola I was building on a back yard slab. Drilled 1/2" holes for Red Head wedge inserts, applied post anchors over them and tightened nut to hold in place. Everything worked as expected and posts were securely attached. No surpirises.

  • Extremely strong post base
  • August 28, 2014
  • Verified Purchase & Recommended Product

Simpson Strong-Tie is the post base to have. I used 4 of these for a pergola on a cement pad in order to keep the posts from rotting. The standoff is good and the metal is thick and sturdy enough that I have no concerns about it. Even after 4 months of wear and surviving some unseasonably heavy rains there is no visible corrosion. These bases seem to be a little expensive for what they are, but that's fine. Not that if you are using rough-cut lumber than the posts will not fit in this bracket without some small notches.

Pros Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Straight, High Quality, Reliable Cons expensive

I used two of these to anchor the stair rail posts at the base of stairs to a new deck I built. I also have angle ties anchoring the stair stringers to the concrete pad on the other side. By tying the posts to the post base and the stringers it made everything very sturdy.

  • I used these galvanized steel supports because I had used them before. They work great and termite proof!

I really like these supports for several reasons. First they are very easy to install. The second reason is, I installed them on a concrete base and it was easy to secure them to that base. This securing makes my project very sturdy. Lastly, they keep my wood posts off the ground. If I hadn't used these, my wood would soon rot and termites would soon attack that fresh wood.

Pros Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Straight, Great Value, Lots of Features, Economical, Reliable, Light Weight, they come in various sizes.

I was pleased with the product, the only problem is that is a very tight fit with using pressure treated lumber. the lumber is bigger then the bracket

This is a high quality post base. Regarding earlier review that stated you will have to notch rough-cut cedar posts: be sure to get the right model. The ABA66Z is sized for pine lumber and the ABA66RZ is sized for rough-cut posts. Found this out in store.

This post base doesn't keep the post from moving when it is installed into concrete. Also when you use a 1/2 drill as the anchor says to use, the anchor gets stuck even before you tap it in with a hammer. This makes it almost impossible to get the anchor out to readjust. I think there should be a better support post bracket that has at least 4 sides to screw into instead of just 3 sides.
