Thank you for finding our PostHugger™ Hexagon Shaped Pergola Bracket Kit . This listing is for our original 12-Piece Top Mount Hexagon Bracket Set for 4×4 or 6×6 Posts! We also now offer our NEWEST, UPDATED HEXAGON PERGOLA BRACKETS KIT! (Photo of brackets shown below.) This is a heavy-duty, 24-PIECE version of our popular/original 12-Piece Top Mount Kit! And the best part is that we are able to offer it at an even better price! Some still prefer the original “over-the-top” style which is this listing. Others like the strength and style of our 24 piece version! VIEW PHOTOS OF NEW DESIGN & ORDER AT https://riverdrivedesigns.com/product-category/hexagons-octagons/
This listing is for a complete set of twelve (12) brackets. There are six brackets which bolt to the top of each upright and the inside of each corner and six more which bolt to the outside of the Hexagon as shown in the pictures.
Other styles fail to attach to the uprights on more than one side, but our PostHugger™ Top-Mount Kit bolts onto both sides of each upright and forms a base for the incoming horizontal posts which also are then bolted on two sides.
We make all our PostHugger™ Brackets using 1/8″ thick steel, which is thicker than a Quarter and a Dime stacked on top of each other. Also unlike others who just cut and ship steel right off their table, we take the time to hand debur and wire brush both the inside and outside of every piece.
We are the original designer of the PostHugger™ brackets, which may be copied, but never equaled! 🙂 If you find a PostHugger™ knockoff, give us a chance to meet or beat their price.
These are sold sized either for 4×4 Posts or for 6×6 Posts. And f you would like an Octagon, see our listing for our 32-Piece Octagon Pergola Brackets Set!
All our brackets can be installed using any 1/2″ wood lag screws. If you use lag screws, we recommend 1/2″ x a minimum of a 2″ long lag bolt, with longer bolts adding more strength. Bolts/lag screws are not included with our brackets.
Also please note that these ship as raw, unpainted steel. You can order them from us with a black powder coat, paint them the color of your choice, finish them with a clear coat, or allow to achieve a natural rust patina over time.
***Powder Coated Brackets: If ordering brackets in the black powder coat, please allow an additional 1-2 days for shipping & delivery.***
