Type of Fence This Bracket Is For:
This bracket is for the sloping part of your fence and on a fence that requires upward or downward slopes on each side of a post. This bracket would be used for moderate to steep slopes. This bracket can be used on a 2x4 with the narrowest part or the widest part of the 2x4 facing forward at the edge of the post. This bracket would be used with two another brackets like part #160310 or #160320. If you need a bracket for a mostly level fence see our other parts as to which one might best suit your needs.
Once a bracket is out of stock it will take approximately 3 weeks to get back in stock. Please order the correct amount of brackets you need for your fence project.
See our downloadable Bracket Form which shows you all the brackets and packages of screws available for purchase which might help you in organizing your fence building or repairing project.
First, you would fasten the front part of the bracket to the post loosely (about half way), leaving a small gap so you can place brackets (#160310 or #160320) under the bracket and placing your angled cut 2x4 into it on one side and securing the bracket to both the angled cut 2x4 and the post at the angle needed for your sloping fence, then repeat for the other side, then tighten down the bracket on the post in the front then on both sides. Make sure the cut angled 2x4’s is flush up against the post before securing both to the 2x4 and the post. If you tighten the front part of the bracket down or put fasteners in the sides, you will be unable to slide your slide bracket under the first bracket. Doing it in this order will provide the best results. Different types of woods vary so some 4x4 posts it maybe be loose on it or it might fit a bit tight, just tap the bracket on with a rubber mallet, then secure it with your screw or nails. The holes in the bracket will accommodate a size #8 screw, maybe some #10 screws and a size #8, #10 or # 12 nail but may vary depending on the type of nail. The holes are not counter-sunk and some fasteners may fit more flush up against the bracket than others. Each bracket has a number of holes but you do not need to use every hole when attaching the bracket, we suggest using about half of the holes. It is up to you which holes you would like to use and how many holes you would like to use. If you leave some holes empty and later on if your fence starts to loosen then you can always add more fasteners to those unused holes. If you prefer you can pre-drill your holes went attaching this bracket, just use a drill bit smaller than your fastener.
The open slotted area on the front is for fastening your fence picket board to your post. So, you place your fence picket over the front of the bracket and screw or nail through the picket then directly into the post in the open slotted area.
