The XT Post Anchor is designed for surface mounting Exterior posts onto decking areas, porches, and verandas.
The new design offers 5 anchoring screw points with the central screw being the longest and then when the base plate is screwed onto the long shaft and tightened to the deck surface they become as one. This is then additionally secured with 4 supplied construction screws.
The base plate is 3 1/2" (89mm) square and is perfect for the common post size with the advantage that it will not protrude past the post and it elevates the post preventing moisture at the post bottom. The fact that the plate is flush with the post make it perfect for slipping PVC sleeving straight over the post. Then the easy part is just to tighten the post down to the deck using the Zipbolt Gear Drive system. (The base plate can be routered into the base of larger posts thereby completely hiding the base plate and of course it can be used indoors as well. The black surface is a double epoxy coated and acrylic baked finish for Maximum Protection.
