The XT Post Anchor is destined to set the standard when it comes to strength. This product is designed for surface mounting Exterior posts onto decking areas, porches, and exterior wood stairs. The new design offers 5 anchoring screw points with the central screw being the longest and then when the base plate is screwed onto the long shaft and tightened to the deck surface they become as one. This is then additionally secured with 4 supplied hardened screws. The base plate is 3 1/2" (89mm) square and is perfect for the common post size with the advantage that it will not protrude past the post and it elevates the post preventing moisture at the post bottom. The fact that the plate is flush with the post makes it perfect for sliding PVC type post covers over the post. Then the easy part is just to tighten the post down to the deck using the Zipbolt Gear Drive system. (The base plate can be routered into the base of larger posts thereby completely hiding the base plate and of course it can be used indoors as well. The black surface is a double epoxy coated and acrylic baked finish for Maximum Protection. PATENTS GRANTED AND PENDING

Dave, you provided some zipbolt angled slipfix railbolts to me back a couple of months ago and asked that I respond with some feedback. I can tell you one thing for sure, if I ever have to install another stair rail, I will use the zipbolt line of products without question. With very little experience, we were able to watch the videos on YouTube and install two sections of handrail in about an hour. It was amazing. The guy who helped me has more experience with installing hand rails (not much more) and he said they were amazing and that it made the install process amazingly less complicated. Thank you for sending me the bolts and I can assure you I will never use anything else. --
