PGT® Pipe Grip Ties

PGT®

Pipe Grip Ties attach wood fence rails to metal fence posts, eliminating rotted and failed wood posts. The PGT is suitable for standard applications as well as corners and splices.

The PGTIC2Z-R is an interior corner pipe grip tie.

The PGT1.5Z-R is for 1 1/2" pipe (1 7/8" outside diameter), and the PGT2Z-R for 2" pipe (2 3/8" outside diameter).

The PGT2A is for 2" pipe (2 3/8" outside diameter).

The PGT2E is the latest time-saving solution for building fences with 2" steel posts. It features a unique two-piece design that installs quickly and provides a solid connection between fence stringer and post. Snap the attachment plate onto the post for easy positioning and secure the strap using one thread-tapping screw (included).

  • The PGT2E is faster to install than other two-piece fence-post brackets.
  • Safer to use, eliminating protruding carriage bolts and sharp corners.
  • Unique locking tab for the strap means only one screw is needed to fasten.
  • Sold as full carton with (50) attachment plates, (50) front straps and (55) thread-tapping screws.
