Replace post anchor


I have a deck post with a rusted post anchor. Is there a product out there that I can add on to replace the anchor without replacing the post. The post in not rotten in any way. Or is there a brace/anchor brace I can add?

Most are easily replaced. What you chose would depend on the setup you have. Post a picture.

Here is the picture. I think. I had a hard time figuring this out.

Thanks

You can use one of the Simpson brackets. Just go to a local lumber yard or one of the Borgs. This bracket is bolted to the ground. You'll need to remove the old bracket while supporting the structure above. The nut might come off and the threaded section might be useful. If not you'll need to remove the rod and insert another device. Look through a few deck books for the details. If any of this is uncertain, hire someone, you could hurt yourself.

This post is pretty old, but I gave you some sketches of what you should do to remove the post and replace the anchor.
