Build your own rugged and heavy duty PostHugger™ Pergola, shop/garage/CNC table, or deck with our RiverDriveDesigns, USA made, 1/8″ thick, steel 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 just over 2 pounds – – strong enough to take what you throw at it (or what you throw it at!), but not so heavy where they are hard to work with. We use 1/8″ 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 these brackets, which may be copied, but never equaled! 🙂 If you find a PostHugger™ knockoff, give us a chance to meet or beat their price.
Our brackets can be installed using any 1/2″ wood lag screws or in instances where there will not be a collision of bolt holes, 1/2″ thru bolts. If you use lag screws, we recommend 1/2″ x at least 2″ length for 4×4 posts and at least 2.5″ length for 6×6 posts, with longer bolts adding more strength. If you choose to through-bolt in locations where possible, go at least 1/2″ x 4.5″ for 4×4 posts. Bolts/lag screws are not included with our brackets.
6×4 to 6 Right Outside Corner – This outside corner bracket is used where your upright post is a 4×6 and you are adding horizontal incoming 4×6 posts which are resting on their short/3.5″ side and you are bolting into the wide/5.5″ side. We call it “Right” because the right side on this one has both the 5.5″ for the upright and horizontal.
6×4 to 6 Left Outside Corner – Same as the Right Outside Corner, but with the left being sized for the 5.5″ sides of the posts.
Please note that unless you choose the powder coated option, these ship as raw, unpainted steel. 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.
***Powder Coated Brackets: If ordering brackets in the black powder coat, please allow an additional 1-2 days for shipping & delivery.***
