PostHugger™ 32 Pc Octagon Pergola Bracket Set | For 4×4 (3.5″ x 3.5″) or 6×6 (5.5″ x 5.5″) Posts | 1/8″ Thick Steel



Build your own rugged and heavy duty PostHugger™ Octagon Shaped Pergola with our USA made 1/8″ steel corner brackets!

This listing is for a complete set of 4 brackets per upright post (a total of 32 brackets for a Octagon) sized for either 4×4 or 6×6 posts— as follows:
–Eight (8) Steel Outside brackets
–Eight (8) Steel Inside brackets-
–Eight (8) Steel Right-Side Underarm  brackets
–Eight (8) Steel Left-Side Underarm brackets

Outside Brackets included in the kit are bent to 45 degrees and bolt to the outside of the top Octagon. Inner Bracket Bends and the Underarm Brackets in the Octagon set each use/create a 22.5° angle.  Miter your posts at 22.5-degrees before adding the brackets, and you’re good to go.  

Our PostHugger™ design is made even better because we use 1/8″ thick steel! The result: over 4 pounds of steel are used to tie together a single completed corner!  And while other manufacturers’ styles fail to attach to the uprights on more than one side, our 20-Piece PostHugger™ Kit bolts onto three sides of each upright! 

These brackets are made to fit  your dimensional-sized, 4×4 (3.5″x3.5″) or 6×6 (5.5″x5.5″) Posts; just choose your options at checkout. We also make  Hexagon Pergola Brackets Sets here:  And Pentagon Pergola Brackets Sets here:×4-or-6×6-posts-1-8-plate-steel-made-in-usa/

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.


  • We are the original designer of these brackets, often copied by others but never equaled!
  • We use 1/8″ steel which is thicker than a Quarter and a Dime stacked on top of each other.
  • 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.
  • All powder coating is done in-house to ensure a quality application on each and every piece.
  • We use only 100% first-rate, high quality powders, which are all made in America.
  • We develop all designs ourselves and, unlike some, never poach the intellectual property of others.
  • We proudly stand behind all our products.
  • All our PostHugger™ Brackets & metal artwork products are Made in America with American-Made Steel!

These are sized for 4×4 posts. We also make them for 6×6 Posts, and we make Hexagons, too!

Our brackets can be installed using any 1/2″ wood lag screws. If you use lag screws, we recommend 1/2″ x a minimum of a 2.5″ long lag bolt, with longer bolts adding more strength. WOOD POSTS AND BOLTS/LAG SCREWS ARE NOT INCLUDED WITH OUR BRACKETS; you can pick them up at your local Home Depot/Menard’s/Lowe’s/Ace Hardware store. Lifestyle customer photos depict build/use variations only.

 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.

***Powder Coated Brackets: If ordering brackets in the black powder coat, please allow an additional 1-2 days for shipping & delivery.
