PostHugger™ 12 Pc PARTIAL-Hexagon 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™ Hexagon Shaped Partial or PARTIAL-PERGOLA with our USA made 1/8″ steel corner brackets! Note this is only for the connecting brackets – not any swings, bases, or other hardware – – just the brackets which connect the upright beams to the horizontal beams.

For 4×4 Posts or 6×6 Posts — each set sold separately here; just choose your size and finish (raw steel or powder coated) from the drop-down menus.

This listing is for a set of 12 brackets for a PARTIAL HEXAGON for DIYs where you want to make only part of a hexagon with 4 legs instead of typical 6 legs for a complete hexagon, similar to the photo here of a customer build.

Each Kit includes a complete set of the following sized for your 4×4 wood posts:

–Two (2) Steel Outside Top brackets
–Two (2) Steel Left-Side bent brackets
–Two (2) Steel Right-Side bent brackets
–Two (2) Steel Inside brackets
–Four (4) Steel Flat L’s; and
ADDITIONAL OPTION for 12 Brackets PLUS Four (4) Steel 2-Piece Post Bases (16 Brackets total)

When checking out, the 12PC KIT includes everything EXCEPT post bases (for instances where you’re setting your posts directly in concrete). The 16PC KIT includes all brackets PLUS four (4), 2Pc Post Bases.

ASSEMBLY: Your two inside posts will use four brackets each at the top (outside top, left-bent, right-bent, and an inside bracket).  Your two outside outside posts will use two Flat L’s each — one for the inside and one for the outside.  If using 6×6 posts, the holes line up on the Flat L’s so you can bolt all the way through and make a steel/post/steel sandwich. (Scroll to the Gazebo/Pergola photo composite in this listing, from a recent full-sized pergola customer build, to view the Top Outside Bracket placement in main photo and the Inner and Underarm Brackets placement in smaller inset photo.)

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 for a 6×6 post! 

Our brackets can be installed using any 1/2″ wood lag screws or 1/2″ thru bolts. If you use lag screws, we recommend at least 1/2″ x 2″ length. 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.


  • 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™ & metal artwork products are Made in America with American-Made Steel!

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.***
