Here is your best way out!

In my earlier review I related my excellent experience with these folks' outstanding customer service.
Now about the product...As I said, I purchased these flanges last January to complete my as-yet unfinished deck.
This was the best decision I've made on that deck next to using 2 x 12's and stainless steel screws.
The flanges were stunningly simple to mount and they are incredibly stout!
I mounted all my 42", 4" x 4"rail posts using these flanges first, and even before I attached the railing - I found them to be solid enough to take a 200# pull with minimal flex.
They've been installed for almost a year now in direct sunlight, through the summer and winter, rain sleet and snow, and they look just like they did when they were brand new.
Not a crack or split anywhere, no fading or UV damage either.
And in case you were wondering - no - the surface of my deck was anything but perfect.
Not only do I highly recommend these, but I'll use them on every deck rail I build from now on out....
