POSTHUGGER™ STEEL BRACKETS 

This is the absolute best place to get anything metal made! The owner, Daniel, never disappoints and being a return customer I have always known I can come to him with any idea, vision, thought, and without any hesitation he makes his magic. He is the true Magic Metal Man and you must order today!

This is one of the Best, easiest and fastest responding companies I have ever have had the pleasure of doing business with. I will definitely be using them for any and all of my metal work.

Awesome customer service!! Fast shipping!! Once you add the brackets to your project it totally transforms it, makes it look soooo much better!!! Thank you!!!! Still not done with our project, but here’s a photo of how it’s coming along!!

These brackets are amazing! I used them to make a table for a friend.

Excellent product. Much more substantial than the ones found in the big-box stores. I used them to build 2 pergolas and I couldn’t be happier!

We are excited to use these – we had ordered a bunch earlier in the season. We do live events and are working on a series of custom projects for clients for an open air structure — these brackets should really speed up the process and add quite a bit of structure to the project! Here are day and night time pics of the builds! And just ordered a bunch more as these made the project MUCH easier—thank you!

I’ve now had multiple purchases, great quality. Structural integrity is spot on. Would absolutely recommend.

Awesome Brackets ! I wanted to build something different for a change. Used these brackets to build an amazing heavy duty bench for my new CNC machine. 5 Stars! Fast shipping. We are going to build some more benches in our new shop this summer. Will purchase again!

These are amazing brackets and worked perfectly on my homemade pergola! Shipping was fast and I couldn’t be happier. Awesome seller and would recommend to anyone.

These arrived so fast – within days of ordering. They were very easy to install and I absolutely LOVE my new backyard canopy!!! Thank you, River Drive Designs!

Added these brackets to my fire pit swing setup, finished them off with some rustoleum paint.

Very good quality and very satisfied! Shipped right away! Awesome customer service! Would highly suggest to order from them! You won’t be disappointed! 5 Out of 5 Stars.

Very strong and accurate. Used for a gazebo and loved them.

These were perfect for my project. They arrived in less than a week. I got 4 outside corner brackets for 4×4’s, and made a very sturdy pergola/structure to hang shade sails on my patio. It was fairly straightforward, and the end result feels very solid, like it will hold up for years. Also, my neighbors love it!

I’ve now had multiple purchases, great quality. Structural integrity is spot on. Would absolutely recommend.

Works great at good price. Used for a pergola. Would buy again and recommend to others.

Really nice work on these! These well made pieces were delivered as promised, look great, and River Drive Designs is very easy to work with. I strongly recommend them!

Very heavy duty and worked perfectly for my 10ft rack build!

Great communication and service from the seller. Product delivered quickly and was exactly what I expected and wanted.

I got the brackets and installed them. They look great! Awesome job 👍 I sent some before and after pics. I’m gonna tell the guy that built my pergola he needs to use these. Thanks for the help!

AMAZING!! The quality & look of these are even more awesome in person. Rugged / industrial with a really well-crafted style. And the shipping time — they even beat Amazon Prime! I highly recommend the seller (and already have to friends).

Best Pergola Ever!  We are so happy with our new River Drive Designs Pergola- in all seasons!

Best hardware on the market.

Daniel,

Here are some pictures of the completed pergola and a mini-pergola spa house that I tucked in below.

Your brackets made it all easier, stronger, and prettier!

This seller went above and beyond to help me buy the hardware needed for my pergola! Thank you!!!

These things are seriously sturdy.

This 6×6 corner bracket came quickly and is a perfect fit. I dedicated it to my father by engraving his name on it.

Super fast shipping. Now I have to get to work. LOL. Thanks for a great looking product.

Very well made, very happy with the result.

These Brackets are the real deal! If you’re looking for heavy duty. Buy these!

Thanks for turning these around for me!

I came back for more after my first order…love this item.

Excellent product. This is very strong and well designed. So happy with it.

Here’s a picture of my project where I used your hexagon brackets. They were perfect for what I needed. 

Fantastic quality and fast shipping! Super friendly. Can’t say enough good things. Will definitely order from this shop again!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! I needed a custom fit “Z” bracket and RiverDriveDesigns saved the day. We discussed the design and once I approved it, I received the bracket quickly. Painted it yesterday and hung it today. The post feels so secure now. Thanks again.

 

Brackets For 6×6 Posts! Heavy Duty Shop Table Pergola Brackets! Like the other products I purchased, heavy duty and well made. This will make the construction quicker as well. Very pleased with the product.  5 Out of 5 Stars.

Great brackets to help finish off my 4×4 post pergola build.  Looks great!

I purchased the metal brackets to build my pergola from Daniel at RiverDriveDesigns. He was awesome to work with. Everything shipped super quickly. The quality and craftsmanship were outstanding. I already have in mind many more things I want to build that he can provide the metal for.

Results of custom corner reducer Daniel made for me. Turned out awesome! Thanks again for a great product.

Project done; your product worked great!

Outstanding brackets. Built a workbench 80 inches by 35 inches, used auger bit to drill 1/2 inch holes in 4×4’s and 2×4’s, and assembled the base upside down on shop floor. Brackets held the 4×4’s vertically, and used impact wrench to run 1/2 inch bolts through the wood. Bracket holes were perfect, and the brackets kept everything square.

High quality and consistent measurements from piece to piece. Used on pergola and I’d say they’re probably the strongest part of the entire assembly. Highly recommend.

 

 
Love my 4×6 brackets from River Drive Designs that I’ve used for my pergola project. Great when paired up with my Douglas Fir timbers. Very heavy duty to hold the whole structure tightly. Daniel and the River Drive Designs folks are amazing too. They were very responsive with my customer service needs.
 

Super fast delivery. Quality of the brackets was tops. Looks great on the post!

Fast communication and response to my questions. Fast fabrication. Quality work. Excellent packing and protection of product, clean powder coat finish. Custom designs made for my project. Need I say more? Will do business again. Great service, RDD.

Wanted to show you our new restaurant build out using your hardware!

Good communication, fast to ship and fast (cross-country) delivery. I am very pleased with these brackets, how they integrated with the others and how they allowed me to build a pergola by myself. I would definitely use these again in the future! Thanks!

Very good quality and very satisfied! Shipped right away! Awesome customer service! Would highly suggest to order from them! You won’t be disappointed!

My husband made a custom order for a desk he was building for our office. The quality was great – good amount of weight and really made the piece stand out.

The items are top notch and very well made. They’re thick and heavy and are holding up exceptionally well. Highly recommended.

.

Such a great transaction, I have “created” a project in my house, so that I can purchase from them again. Asked questions and they responded immediately!!

Used this to be the focal point of a small bed loft. Stunning.

Was torn between ordering these corner brackets and pairs of the Simpson Flat L’s to save a small amount.

These were the right choice. The finished look has a higher quality feel and it also gives you a little coverage if your corners aren’t Bob Villa perfect.

Good quality product. Thick steel. Smooth edges. Good powder coat application. Seller is excellent to work with.

Amazing, great quality fast shipping and quick response on questions!!

Great communication. Great product. I ordered the wrong hardware and Daniel was able to refund and ship my correct sizes all on the same day. Fantastic customer service!

Very strong and accurate. Used for a gazebo and loved them.

I came back for more after my first order…love this item.

Products are awesome, and the service and help provided by RiverDriveDesigns was par none!!!!  Excellent experience.

They are exactly what I hoped, wonderfully strong. Thanks!

Items came fast. Products worked perfectly for a pergola structure. Like how thick and durable these brackets are.

Good communication, fast to ship and fast (cross-country) delivery. I am very pleased with these brackets, how they integrated with the others and how they allowed me to build a pergola by myself. I would definitely use these again in the future! Thanks!

Would not hesitate to purchase from this company again…product exactly as described and received impossibly fast. Very impressive.

These brackets worked very well for the construction of an arbor that we were building for clematis to climb up! The brackets were definitely heavy enough for the job!

 

They arrived yesterday in perfect time . . . Loving the product, here’s a pic of my outdoor patio cart.

Thanks so much for getting the pieces out for me. The brackets and wheels made this project so complete. It’s ready for LSU Tailgating for my buddy now. 

Appreciate you!

Well made. Fit perfectly. Saved me a lot of work.

Used these for an outdoor grill table with a granite top and 2 BGE grills. It moves around with little effort, very happy I was able to find just what I was looking for.

I finished my project this past weekend.  I made the bench 8 feet long / 2 feet deep and 42” high.   It came together easy.  The wheels are awesome.  I move it around freely in my garage with ease and quickly lock it down with the upgraded leveling castors.  Thank you so much for hearing me out and taking the initiative to seek the castor vendor out directly to provide me with a single source solution for the work bench.  I am still organizing my garage for the next project but will reach back out when I am ready. 

Sure fast shipping! Exactly what we needed and much stronger quality than other options we found. Beautiful, sturdy brackets. We will be ordering more!

Perfect! We were able to add our second arm to our sectional, allowing us to make two full couches!

It’s as strong as they say it is.

Great service, quality product. Very well made and sturdy. I have plans to purchase more this summer.

.

Super sturdy and attractive. Exactly what we were looking for.

I have bought numerous brackets for several different projects. The Post Hugger brackets are the best you will find. No sharp edges, precise measurements and the black Powder Coat stands up to the elements. The ship fast and are very fairly priced–what more could you ask?

I used these brackets to build a custom stand for the tender on my boat. They are very well made and sturdy,.. exactly what i needed.

Bought these for my CNC workbench and couldn’t be happier. They look fantastic and are suuuper sturdy.

The BEST COMPANY 🇺🇸I’ve had to deal with in a long time unbelievable service; if you buy your parts online from anywhere else… you should at least visit before you buy anything!!! Thank you so much for the incredible service🇺🇸

Absolutely wonderful! This is better than I even thought it would be. Great size and it has weight to it. I’m really happy, and this will be a favorite shop.

Thick gauge metal. Quality. Clean. No burrs. Worth buying.

Beautiful in my new garden area! Nice quality.

Lovely piece that I staked in a pot with some begonias and ferns next to my front door. It’s perfect and so reasonably priced. Would highly recommend this shop. Thanks also for the quick service. 

Love this! Been looking for just the right piece for this space and you nailed it!

I absolutely love my custom sized monogram for our welcome welcome sign. Best customer service and shipped in two days! I will be back to order again!

Best Pig Ever! Heavy, heavy, heavy. Easy to do business with.
