Titan Post Anchor
 
I need to add 4x4 posts on top of my deck which has composite decking. I am thinking of using the Titan Anchor kit to flush mount the 4x4 to the top of the deck. However, I was wondering if anyone has tried these and used a post sleeve and skirt as well. Just wondering if the skirt would fit over this. They do sell a skirt for this anchor but would rather use the one that came with the railing kit.

Here it is:

Will these meet the Building Code where you live?
Whe you built the deck, does the framing underneath coinside with the bolt locations of the hardware? You can't just bolt it to the decking.
How high off the ground is the deck?

This is an extension to a current deck. This was build with 4x6 posts which were cut down. So I need to add some 4x4 posts for the rails. However, I can not put these on the inside because the 4x6's are there. The deck is about 30" off the ground. I know I would need to add some support under these brackets for them to be bolted into, such as some 2x10's. I will look into if these meet code where I live. The other thing I could do is add the posts to the outside of the frame.
