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!
When using this bar holder in conjunction with its companion SECURE bar holder, where I’ve added a locking tab you can make very secure and lockable combinations.
The primary features of this open 2×4 bar holder end cap in a joist hanger configuration are:
- 1/8 inch galvanized steel *OR* painted construction (see variations if they exist)
- Compact design – only requires a single 2×4 wide to mount upon
- Hidden screws – they go UNDER the bar!
- 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.)
- The painted versions are powder coated.
- NOTE: If you want a custom color, put COLORMATCH in your cart and then select the color matching process as an additional product in your cart.
