Do you need to use a sledgehammer for these mender plates? I have an engineering hammer 4lbs would that work? My guess it will take longer but I only have 2 posts to repair.

Asked by: jdawg87
Yes, that's what I used. They worked great.

How do you get it to go into the existing concrete ? It’s the wooden post that has rotted at the top of concrete.

Asked by: Sheila3409
Hello, My name is Ricardo with Simpson Strong-Tie. You could be having trouble driving in the mender because the embedded portion of the post might not be rotted all the way through. You want to try to remove all dirt and debris within and around the existing post to drive in the E-Z Mender. Additional information/support can be found by referencing flier F-C-EZFPP. https://www.strongtie.com/fences_decksandfences/ez_mender/p/e-z-mender

A similar product is shown as a pair and priced for 2 items. Is the price shown for a pair or for a single item?

Hello, Sorry but we cannot answer this question. Please contact Lowe's Canada team for pricing questions. Regards

Does this come in a 2-pack?

Hello, E-Z Mender connectors are sold individually. Regards

Does it work with a standard PT.  3 1/2 inch post in concrete?  Concerned the side flanges will catch on the concrete at the sides of the post.  Thanks.

Asked by: Rolley
Hello, E-Z Mender is sized to work with a standard nominal 4x4 lumber. How it would work depends on individual situation such as location of break in wood post or location of cracks in concrete. I used them myself a couple of years ago as a temporary support and it did work fine. Hope it works for you too! Regards

Asked by: mrj80
Hello, E-Z Mender connectors are only available in 4x4 size. Regards

Simpson Strong-Tie E-Z Mender Fence Menders - 12 Gauge is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 78.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Difficult with warped wood Got these home and realized that my post has been in the ground for 10 years soaking up water causing it to warp and expand over time. The post was 1/4 inch too big, so had to cut it down. It was also difficult to get one of the strong-ties straight due to the concrete in the ground. Working up against the house didn’t help. I expected it to turn out better, but that’s not a reflection on the product, just my situation. Now wish I had purchased a new post. Taking one star off because the part on the side that you’re supposed to hit was useless, forcing me to hit the top with a sledgehammer and ended up bending the metal. Overall a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations Had a fence post that had rotted out at the ground. Found these after a google search. I had some hope, but wasn't sure how well it would work. It worked, I'm pleased to say. I put them against the post, pounded the Simpson Strong-Tie down into the ground, and drove screws into the post through the Strong-Tie. I did this on the other side as well, and the fence is surprisingly solid. My soil is a bit sandy, so that might be why, but they were even relatively easy to drive into the ground. I'm waiting to see how it works in the coming months and years, but for now I'm very happy with the result!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great This is second time I purchased these. First time was about 6 years ago. The first two Posts I repaired with these are still going strong. My original posts were installed in 1992. I now had two different posts to repair. Same product and will surely get same great results. I recommended to my neighbor and he promptly bought for his two posts that were bad. Note-designed to work in pairs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine for quick durable repair Use ear protection. The nub for pounding it in can get smashed in and unuseable if you dont strike true. Hold a sledge hammer against the nub hit it with a second hammer to drive it down. When they have outlast the original post I have reused them. They may not need fasteners but when they do make shure they are galvanized, powder coated, or stainless steel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product qty. misrepresented!! All photos showed these in pairs of 2 and I ordered 5, thinking 10 spikes would arrive. I was very disappointed that only 5 came, and I would not have paid so much for just 5! I sent a complaint to Rona and they pretty much just said "yes all pics do show hem as two but its really just for 1.. sorry." Very overpriced and shady advertising, with no offer to satisfy this customer. I will stay away feom Rona purchases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved me a lot of time Great product. My mailbox rotted through and fell over. This product saved me from having to dig out the current post and cement, or even buy a new post. Remember to buy a bolt, washers, and nuts to attach the two pieces across the post. You also probably would want get some paint to match you current post color as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had invented this!!! Saved me from tearing fence apart in 4 locations and actually made Much Stronger than just wood posts

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, reliable fence post repair. These steel menders provide an excellent alternative to replacing fence posts rotted at the base. I have been using them for over ten years to provide vertical, stable posts with no client call-backs.
