- A slotted hole for the concrete anchor allows for adjustment so you can achieve a perfect post alignment.
- The ABU88Z provides a 1” standoff to get your 8x8 post 1” off the ground. Not only will your project be code compliant, but it will keep your post end from sitting in standing water to prevent unwanted rotting and damage.
- The G185 ZMAX ® galvanized finish provides a level of corrosion resistance that is acceptable for use with treated lumber and normal outdoor use. If you’re installing in a high corrosive environment, i.e. near saltwater or where exposure to chemicals may occur, it’s recommended that you use a stainless steel base like the ABU88SS 8x8 Stainless Post base.

California Proposition 65
⚠WARNING: – www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
We are providing this warning pursuant to a law passed by California in 1986 called the “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986”, or “Proposition 65” for short.
A Proposition 65 warning does not mean a product is in violation of any product-safety standards or requirements. In fact, the California government has clarified that “[t]he fact that a product bears a Proposition 65 warning does not mean by itself that the product is unsafe.”
The California agency tasked with implementing Proposition 65 has also explained, “You could think of Proposition 65 more as a ‘right to know’ law than a pure product safety law.” See http://oehha.ca.gov/prop65/background/p65plain.html
