Build your own rugged and heavy duty Pergola, shop/garage table, or deck with our USA made 1/8″ steel corner brackets! (As shown in the last picture, Stainless Steel also available!)
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.
This listing is for ONE ITEM, SETS OF FOUR or SETS OF EIGHT. If you want them for 6 x 6 posts, we also make and sell those.
Our brackets can be installed using any 1/2″ wood lag screws or 1/2″ thru bolts. If you use lag screws, we recommend 1/2″ x 2″ length. If you choose to thru bolt, go at least 1/2″ x 4.5″. Bolts/lag screws are not included with our brackets.
You will receive either a single bracket, a pack of 4 or a pack of 8 brackets of your choice based on your selection.
Outside Corner Brackets – bent at a 90 degree angle to fit over any 4 x 4 post (3.5″ x 3.5″). 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. (The holes for the legs are offset so that if you want to thru bolt, you don’t have to worry about hitting any of the other installed bolts!)
Flat T brackets – join other parts of your design.
Bent L’s – use where you want an inside corner.
Flat L’s – Flat like the T, but without the third leg.
Post Bases – mount a 4×4 to a flat surface. These have 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 4×4’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 side 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.
Also please note that these ship as raw, unpainted steel. There are selections to purchase these painted black or with a clear coat. If you would like, you can either paint them the color of your choice or finish them with a clear coat at home.
