This listing is for a set of Outside Corner Brackets, made to fit 4×4 posts, which have a slope of 6:1, for those of you who wish to make a pergola with a sloped roof!
T’s and Ls are also available upon request.
Build your own rugged and heavy duty PostHugger™ Pergola 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 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 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.
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 go with thru bolts, go at least 1/2″ x 4.5″. Bolts/lag screws are not included with our brackets.
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!)
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.
