Sturdy anchor
19 Jul 2014

"Not too much to say about this product other than it looks well made and sturdy. Have used it to fix pergola uprights to an Indian stone patio and IMO it looks neater than some of the other bolt-down style fixings."

Just the job!

"I bought 2 of these brackets to support 100mm x 100mm (4x4) timber posts as part of a Pergola I'm building. I bolted both brackets to a concrete base using M8 threaded bar and nuts. These brackets securely locate a post to a suitable footing.
I'm really pleased with the product. The posts fit well, the brackets are well made and fit for purpose; the posts should last a lot longer now they're not in direct contact with water.
They were out of stock the day I ordered them but helpful staff in Bolton had them available the next day. Once again, Screwfix delivered."

Simple but effective
22 Aug 2012

"Used to support deck posts on a concrete base. Very easy to install and seem very strong. Agree with other comments on here that a 100 x 100mm post needs trimmed to fit in but no hardship to do this and a bulk pack would be nice.."

Did the job
6 Jul 2012
By
, Banbury
"Used to support the posts for my decking. Items did the job however I had to shave down the ends of my posts to fit in as posts come as 4 inch posts and these are 100mm, the imperial to metric problem. Just change the bases to 102mm and then problem solved, and I would have given them 5 stars!"

Robust Post Support
12 Nov 2011
By
, Glasgow
"The post support was used to foot post for decking. Solid construction and easy to fix with decent sized hole to get socket set in to tighten bolt. Did have to trim the base of post a little to fit but not a big issue.
Would buy again.

post support

"Posts (100 x 100) needed a bit of trimming but support is of solid construction, easy to bolt down. Provides good support. Good quality though a bit exspensive - how about a multi pack?"

Good base
30 Mar 2009
By
, Wigan
"Used them for decking bases. My brother in law had previously used them for a large deck at the rear of his house. They were fitted 2 years ago and are still in great condition and holding the deck solidly in place. He fixed them using sleeve anchor fittings. I fixed them to concrete bases using monti hex bolts. For both of these we used a socket set. Found these bases are easy to install as hole in the top allows for penny washers to be inserted around the bolt.
I used zinc coated round head screws to screw in on either side of the flanges and I have not found any trouble with these or splitting of the post bases.
For me the only downside of these bases, as Wheelspin noted on previous review, is that the welds at side of the flanges mean that posts need to be chamferred to get them flush."

Poorly made
30 May 2014

"The post anchor bases that I had previously purchased from screwfix were fine, looks like they have changed manufacturer.
The bases were badly spot welded & did not sit flat, not convinced that the galvanised coating will pass the time test."

Very bad design changes
21 Oct 2008
By
, East Sussex
"The previouly available post anchor base was an American (Simpson)made two piece design which was easier to use and had several features mising from this 'cheap' one piece welded imitation.
The current item has as single oversized hole in the base for the anchor bolt, (which means using a box spanner)-the previous product had a nicely formed slotted and angled fixing hole which allowed for horizontal adjustment, and tightening with a conventional spanner.
The current item is shorter and in one piece with large fillet welds across two sides which means the bottom of the post has to be chamfered in order to sit down on the base.
The post attachment holes in the side of the current product are too close to the weld thus causing the end of the post to split, or requiring undersized screws
