Simpson PGT1.5Z-R 1-7/8" O.D. Pipe Grip Tie - ZMAX Finish

SKU: PGT1.5Z-R
$2.87

The Strong-Tie PGT1.5Z-R Pipe Grip Tie bracket is used to quickly attach your 1-7/8" OD metal fence posts to wood fencing rails, creating an unbelievably solid connection. Just tighten the clamp bolt on the bracket, zip in 4 SDS 1/4" x 1-1/2" heavy duty screws and you're done installing the tie. Whether you're replacing old rotted wood posts with sturdy metal posts or starting new fence construction, these pipe grip ties will get the job done. These fence brackets are usually installed flush to straight fence railing sections, but can also be field bent one time to accommodate corners or angled positions. The ZMAX finish provides extra protection against corrosion to make this connector last. If you have larger metal fence posts that are 2-3/8" diameter, check out our PGT2Z-R and PGT2A connectors.


Installation:
  • Use all specified fasteners.
  • Install on vertical pipes, offsetting corners to allow for the correct rail alignment.
  • Use 3 to 4 PGTs per pipe; line up to stringline.
  • Fasten PGT with 1/4" hex head bolt (supplied).
  • PGT attaches to rails with four Simpson Strong-Tie SDS 1/4"x1 1/2" HDG wood screws (not supplied).
  • 1/4" lag bolts may be used. Follow the code requirements for predrilling.
  • Nail or screw fence boards to rails.
  • Field bend PGT flanges to fit corner and angled conditions (bend one time only).

NOTE: The correct fasteners installed in the correct position must be used to achieve published load values
