I purchased 3 pieces of the 6x6 post anchor to mount posts to a new construction deck, opting for the galvanized fastener package. I expected, based on the installation video, that mounting the anchor to a PT 6x6 would be a little bit of work but manageable based on the instructions and install video. It was anything but! I used a normal 1.75" depth hole saw with a single cut, choosing to not remove the waste material and drill to a deeper depth. Drill used was a Milwaukee 1/2" hammer drill and Rigid hole saw. Easy to drill - placed Titan anchor on hole and with no more than 6 or 7 hits using a 3# mallet the anchor was set. I had concerns about alignment, as well - orientation or twist of the post relative to the anchor. Laying the assembly on a concrete floor and just a light tap on the side that was high squared everything up nicely. The application was a little different, in that I was mounting atop deck boards, and placement was over an I-Beam, so lag screws were not an o
Was building a gazebo on top of a cedar 12x12 existing decking by my pool with 6x6 posts and needed something strong to hold it in place. Local building stores had nothing I would even consider using because they were not strong enough or would bend to easy. Found Titan building Anchors and I was sold. Bought 9 of these and let me tell you they were solid metal, for the same price for a piece of cheap tin from my local stores. Came with all the hardware i needed to install them. great product. Company was fast shipping and even answered the phone when i needed more info about their products. So bottom line, they are steel and will hold any post where you need the extra support. well worth the money.
Bought six of the 6x6 anchors and used them on my concrete patio. Six post on a free standing 12' x 16' Pergola. I did not use the 1/4" lag bolts that came with the anchors (for wood decks) but used 1/4" threaded rod lengths epoxied into eight hammer drilled holes. The Titan Anchors have excellent holding strength. I wrapped my 6x6 posts with aluminum and I installed the white Skirts to cover the anchors and I now have a very professional finished look. I am amazed at how sturdy my pergola is.
