    Overview
    Post and column bases secure the bottom of posts or columns to concrete and are perfect for decks or patio covers. Models are available for attaching to existing hardened concrete, wet concrete, as well as wood. The BCS allows for the connection of 2-2xs to a 4x post or 3-2xs to a 6x post. Double-shear nailing between beam and post gives added strength.
