Simpson Strong-Tie RCPS 8x8 RGH Rebar Carport Saddle
The popular RCPS rebar carport saddle works as a cast in place or post-installed saddle for connecting posts to concrete. Now it has been redesigned with added features that offer greater installation flexibility and strength. Along with these design improvements, the RCPS is also available in a black powder-coat for applications that call for a more finished look.
