2×4 Bar Holder Bracket End Cap or Joist Hanger for Door Barricade, Shed, Barn, Gate – Compact


I really don’t want to do this. But if you really, really want a hole, I’ll drill one for you. I will drill completely through so there will be a hole in the front and the back.

I can paint some custom colors for you with my powder coat. It is quite a bit of extra work for me, but I don’t mind. If you pick Custom Color, we’ll negotiate on the color in email. No returns on custom color.

This is a lot like the THIN FLIMSY 2×4 joist hangers EXCEPT that this is THICK AS HECK and TOUGH as HELL.

My brother uses these to make stair railings out of nice 2×4… that are also removable.

This 2×4 Bar holder is different from what you might find in Lowes and Home Depot because you can install this bar holder on a SINGLE width of a 2×4! Most of the 2×4 bar holders I have seen require a width of at least a 2×6 or 2×8 to install correctly.

The compact installation width of this 2×4 bar holder helps to keep your gates and barns looking neat as a pin.

This particular unit can be used when you don’t have enough room to install my other very compact bar holders on the same wall as your 2×4 bar. For example, many times, doors are put way too close the next wall leaving no room for a place to mount a bar holder. This solves that problem!


  • You could make sections of a fence reconfigurable/removable by using these 2×4 bar holders. By putting screws in the bigger holes your horses/cattle would not be able to push the 2×4 out!
  • Use to create a panic room in your house or to secure your house better than a regular lock/deadbolt.
    • (how? because it makes people’s kicking force be spread across the whole door instead of concentrated on the normal lock.)
    • Door barricade can work even if door opens OUT – by putting bar holder bracket on the DOOR and not the door frame!
  • See the pictures for ONE unique customer who used these bar holders to create a kick board door stopper barricade for french doors. Very clever, and very attractive.

The primary features of this open 2×4 bar holder end cap in a joist hanger configuration are:

  • 1/8 inch galvanized steel with optional powder coat painted construction
  • Compact design – only requires a single 2×4 wide to mount upon
  • 100% made in America. To be specific, made in Texas.
  • If you buy the “RAW” version you can paint it yourself (not hard but my powder coat is better.)
