PGT2A/PGT2E/PGT2OZ/PGT2Z Pipe Grip Ties®

PGT2A/PGT2E/PGT2OZ/PGT2Z

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 for 2" pipes and features a two-piece design that provides a solid connection between fence stringer and post.

The PGT2OZ is for 2” pipe and features a narrow, 4 7/8" width that is easy to conceal in a 1x wood box frame.
