Elaine Cave
Strong but not what I needed.

Very strong brackets. Unfortunately when I googles the angle I needed these came up, but they won't work for me needs.

Tom Denton
Simpson knee brace

Ideal brace for an octagonal gazebo. I secured them with 2 1/2 inch lag bolts. They're decorative and functional. Perfect

Richard Hawkins
Great solution

This really improved on the time required to install the angle bracing.

Angel Perez
Simple Pergola

I was a little worried about my brand new pergola racking back and forth. I knew that I would need to place some knee braces. I wanted something that would hold strong and give that look of Strongtie! I am completely satisfied with the look and the strength of the Knee braces. No more racking and it looks like great!
