Additional Important Info:

Steel is a natural material. When welding it together some “pull” will naturally happen. As with all construction, there are no perfect lines or angles. Though we do everything we can to make sure the brackets are as perfect as they can be without compromising the integrity of the steel’s strength, some brackets may not be a perfect line, perfect angle or perfectly level. Therefore, as in most construction, you may have to shim when installing some of the brackets. Note: By purchasing our brackets, you agree to these terms and understanding.
