I need to attach a 2x2 gatepost, with a flange at the bottom, to my 4"
What is the best way of bolting the flange (4 holes) to the concrete? I have
a 1/2" hammer drill with a 9/16" concrete drill bit.
How do I proceed from here? Can I just drill 4 holes in the concrete with
my 9/16 bit and then insert some kind of a fastener in the holes? What kind?
Accurately measure the size of the holes on the flange then go to Lowes or
Home Depot and ask them to show you the "RedHead" fasteners
http://smithfast.com/redibolt.htm I'm guessing you'll use the 1/4" ones
Make sure you get the proper sized drill bit.. It probably wont be a 9/16"
If there s a Harbor Freight Tools store where you are, get a whole set of
masonry bits for a few bucks. They dont last forever but are fine for "odd
jobs" like you re doing
