Rated 5 out of 5Â by ARTIZAN Makes putting it up easy
I have used these twice now, once about 3 years ago ( and they are still good and solid) , and also over the last fortnight.
I used them for building large pergolas, allowing me to set out the base positions in advance, getting everything level and square, ready to accept the posts.
The posts then just pop in and before you know it, its up!
I have used them with 100mm PSE, which finish at 95mm so I slide in a cheeky pack here and there which keeps them nice and tight.
The clamp part could be improved as it bends easily, and the bolts only have to look at rain and they rust, but a smear of grease keeps them ok, and its unlikely you will need to undo in the short term, but could be easily replaced in the future if necessary.
Only 4stars for value as they are a bit expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by westiemad 100mm x100mm post supports
Easy to use and holds post in place in a solid manner and keeps the post from future early rot problems

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ChrisDIY1 Heavy solid build
Good quality but the clamp could be better. Solid build, time will tell how good the galvanise protects the concreted in section.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by impee1 too small
I bought these to support 2x 6 foot 100mm fence posts. Now if some one has has even picked up such a big post, you know how heavy it is! The posts slide straight in and you then tighten then with the bolts, but the issue is that, as the posts are so heavy and tall and this support only holds 6 inches of the bottom post out of the 6 foot - it doesn't hold it that stable and the post wobbles!
Now this size might be ok for a 70mm post, but 100mm support should have been a bit taller to be able to control/hold the post more.
But I don't think there is any alternative out there, so we might as well use this :)
