Build your own rugged and heavy duty PostHugger™ Pergola, shop/garage/CNC table, or deck with our USA made 1/8″ steel brackets!
This listing is for packs of SMALLER Bent L’s for use with 2×4’s. They are made using the same 1/8″ thick steel as the standard Bent L, but is smaller for use with 2×4’s rather than 4×4’s. They also use smaller bolts/lags. 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 just 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.
For these Small Bent L Brackets, the holes are also smaller, so you will want to use 5/16″ bolts. If you have a Small Bent L on each side of a 2×4 (over-kill but some like it like that) then no washer needed. Otherwise, we advise that you bolt all the way through and put a washer on the other side of the 2×4. That way it spreads out the force! 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.
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.***
