A few months ago we were introduced to a new type of timber connector used in post and beam construction called a T-REX Connector, by the team at Connecticut Post and Beam. We instantly liked the simplicity of the connector as well as the ease of use and installation.
The T-Rex Connector is a piece of anodized aluminum in the shape of a “T”. One end gets screwed (in the case of this detail) with GRK Caliburn concrete screws to the concrete, and the other end goes into a slot cut into the base of the post. The post is then secured to the T-Rex Connector with two ½” aluminum pins supplied by T-REX.
