Embed Simpson bracket at angle
 
First post, concrete newbie.

I am pouring a patio/footing this week. There are several Simpson CB66 column base brackets that are to be embedded in the concrete. One of them is supposed to be at a 15 degree angle - the post attached to it is to provide lateral strength to the roof structure.

Any good ideas of how to get the angle measurement correct when the pour happens?

Thanks,
Paul

Put a 4x4 in the bracket and support the 4x4 with 2x lumber at the angel needed.
