FBFZ™ Fence Rail Bracket

The FBFZ is designed to provide a sturdy, concealed connection between rails and posts. The design of this flat fence rail bracket provides strong, simple connections without the need for toe nails or screws. The flat-plate design of the FBFZ both eases installation and provides a clean appearance.

Key Features

  • Can be used for handrail attachments for porch and deck railings that are 30" or closer to ground level
  • Bendable tabs on each end of the bracket allow for slight adjustments when wood rails are cut too short and provide a secure connection when wood expands and contracts
  • Flexible hole design can accommodate multiple fastener types, including nails and Strong-Drive® SD Connector screws


  • 18 ga.


  • ZMAX® coating; see Corrosion Information


  • Install the FBFZ using 0.131" x 1 1/2" nails or #9 x 1 1/2" Strong-Drive SD Connector screws.
