Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
For full loads, minimum side cover required is 3" for CB, 2" for LCB.
Install all models with bottom of base plate flush with concrete.
Post bases do not provide adequate resistance to prevent members from rotating about the base and therefore are not recommended for non top-supported installations (such as fences or unbraced carports).
View step-by-step installation instructions in the
Installer's Pocket Guide (S-C-INSTALL).
LCB and CB are available in rough size. Other sizes available for CB specify W1 and W2 dimensions. Consult
