What size of screws should be used 

Asked by: MG111111
Hi, this is McKenzie from Simpson Strongtie. The EZ Mender model FPB44E installs with #9 X 1 1/2 SD screws. Thanks.

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?

Does this come in a 2-pack?

Asked by: RobertGuy
Hello, E-Z Mender connectors are sold individually. Regards
Answered by: Simpson Strong-Tie
Date published: 2021-05-11

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
Answered by: Simpson Strong-Tie

Does this come in 5 inch as well

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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great item can be even better by adding few holes Very nicely made, but could be even better by providing couple of holes for 1/4" thick through bolt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not fit 4x4 post I brought this home to fix a fence post that had been blown over, but when I went to install it the product was too small to be attached to the 4x4” post. When I held it against the post, the post was at least a quarter of an inch wider on either side. It didn’t fit at all, and I will be returning this to the store.
