- For 6x6 (5.5"x5.5") Posts - - For 6x6 (5.5"x5.5") Posts - - For 6x6 (5.5"x5.5") Posts. Build your own rugged and heavy duty Pergola, shop/garage/CNC table, or deck with our USA made 1/8 steel corner brackets! Also great for fixing/reinforcing the one you already have!
These are not flimsy/bendable metal. We make them using 1/8 thick steel - a single corner bracket weighs about 6 pounds - - strong enough to take what you throw at it, but not so heavy where they are hard to work with. NOTE: All our brackets are based on the dimensional size of the lumber but we can make them actual 4"x4" or 6"x6" for you, if needed. We get a lot of questions about the pergola in the picture -- it uses the following.
Full Post Bases (or 6 of our Two-Piece Post Bases). Our brackets can be installed using any 1/2" wood lag screws or 1/2" thru bolts.If you use lag screws, we recommend at least 1/2" x 2" length. Bolts/lag screws are not included with our brackets; you can pick them up at your local Home Depot/Menard's/Lowe's/Ace Hardware store. Need a brackets kit set for a Single or Double Pergola build? Our Individual PostHugger Brackets Product Line includes the following. Outside Corner Brackets - bent at a 90 degree angle to fit over any 6 x 6 post (5.5" x 5.5"). There are two 1/2" holes on each of the top ears for fastening to cross members and four 1/2" holes on the bottom leg for mounting to the legs. Flat T brackets - join other parts of your design. Bent L's - use where you want an inside corners. Flat L's - Flat like the T, but without the third leg.
Two Piece Post Base - to mount a 6x6 (5.5"x5.5") post to a flat surface. It is made up of two separate halves and has four feet. We are able to make this more efficiently, so offer them as a pair for less than the cost of the one-piece Full Post Base.If your post is going up against a wall, you will still want the Full Post Base because it has just two feet, not four, so can be mounted closer to a wall. Half a Post Base - This item is just one half of the Two Piece Post Base, for those who only need one (or another odd number). Legless T T - This bracket is the same dimensions & placement of bolt holes as the "T" - just without the bottom "leg" of the "T"! It measures 5.5" x 16.5" for a dimensional 6x6 (5.5"x5.5") post, and 3.5" x 10.25" for a 4x4 Post.
Flat X T - 90 degree cross angle brackets to provide extra, heavy duty support to new or existing DIY builds & structures. Full Post Base - for those of you who are building up against a wall, and therefore need a post base with only two feet instead of four feet, we offer this Full Post Base design. It is a one-piece, box/wrap-around sized for a 5.5" x 5.5" post, with only two feet, and has 8 bolt holes to lag with up to 3 lag bolts - two on each side.All 8 are offset, so no concerns about them hitting each other. One side is left open to reduce issues with fat/twisted 6x6's not fitting. When using our post base, tighten to the inside corner to seat post and the tighten the two sides with the open edges and they will clamp down on the post. The ears for bolting down to concrete are set far enough away so drill/tools have easier access.
Like all our brackets, these are made with 1/8 thick steel. This is listed as the "Full Post Base" option when you checkout. You can either paint them the color of your choice, finish them with a clear coat, or allow to achieve a natural rust patina over time. If you would like to see customer photos and a video!
