PostHugger™ 20 Pc Bracket Set to Add Rafters to 4×4 Posts



Build your own PostHugger™ Pergola with sloped roof with our USA made 1/8″ steel brackets or add a slope to an existing Pergola.

If  you are planning to build a design with a sloped roof, or add (or reinforce) an existing one, one of these 20-piece set of brackets may be able to help.  All styles are 3-3/8″ wide so that they may bolt to the horizontal surface of 4×4 posts (or larger).

.Made to attach a set of 2×6 rafters to 4×4 posts and beams where your design includes a sloped roof, these are constructed of USA made 1/8″ thick steel!

We offer the option of a 3-to-1 Horizontal to Vertical Slope Ratio or a 1.5-to-1 Horizontal to Vertical Slope Ratio, sized to add a 5.5″ wide rafter, but if you are using a different slope or rafter width, we can fashion a different shape and slope ration for your design as a custom order. Likewise, if you need a different quantity, we can set you up with a custom listing. Just let us know your ship-to zip code, the parts and actual size(s) you would like and we can let you know the total cost for custom brackets made to fit your project.

We make our brackets using 1/8″ thick steel – a single corner bracket for 4×4 posts weighs 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.

This listing is for the 20-Piece Bracket Set only.  WOOD AND BOLTS/LAG SCREWS ARE NOT INCLUDED WITH OUR BRACKETS. .You will need to pick up your own lags/bolts/wood. Our brackets can be installed using any 1/2″ wood lag screws — we recommend at least 1/2″ x 2″ length.  

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.***
