PostHugger™ 4×6 Outside Corner and Post Base Brackets | For 4×6 Posts (3.5″ x 5.5″)



Build your own rugged and heavy duty PostHugger™ Pergola, Double Pergola, shop/garage/CNC table, deck or even a wedding arch chuppah with our USA made 1/8″ steel Outside Corner brackets and more!  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 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 use 1/8″ steel which is thicker than a Quarter and a Dime stacked on top of each other. Also 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. And all our PostHugger™ Brackets & metal artwork products are Made in America with American-Made Steel!

We are the original designer of these 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 in instances where there will not be a collision of bolt holes, 1/2″ thru bolts. If you use lag screws, we recommend 1/2″ x at least 2″ length for 4×4 posts and at least 2.5″ length for 6×6 posts, with longer bolts adding more strength. If you choose to through-bolt in locations where possible, go at least 1/2″ x 4.5″ for 4×4 posts. 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.

4×6 to 6 Right Outside Corner – This outside corner bracket is used where your upright post is a 4×6 and you are adding horizontal incoming 4×6 (or 2×6’s) posts which are resting on their short side and you are bolting into the wide side. We call it “Right” because this one has the 5.5″ side for the 4×6 on the right side.

4×6 to 6 Left Outside Corner – Same as the Right Outside Corner, but with the left side sized for the 5.5″ side of the 4×6.

Two-Piece Post Base for 4×6 – Used to bolt an upright post to concrete or other suitable surface.

Half a Post Base for 4×6 – This Bracket is just one half of the Two Piece Post Base, for those who only need one (or another odd number).

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.***
