Our Uplift Plate™ is a revolutionary new product that saves post-frame builders time and money, while exceeding the uplift requirements; it’s the new way to anchor your post frame buildings. This state-of-the-art design securely anchors posts to concrete without requiring time-consuming drilling. These inexpensive plates are field applied with just a framing hammer, eliminating the extra tools and time associated with rebar or other uplift techniques. Simply hammer the plates onto the post and it’s ready to set in the ground for the concrete pour.
In order to anchor a post properly you need to make sure the post and the concrete are fused for life.

1. Position the plate onto the post with the teeth towards the post and the short portion of the panel to the lowest part of the post. Hammer until teeth are completely embedded into the lumber.
2. Set the post in the pre-dug hole.
3. Completely encase in concrete.
Using truss plate technology is a stronger, simpler alternative. Uplift Plate is an adaption of truss plate technology that simplifies the process while strengthening the bond. With this new patented plate technique, you will increase holding power by 3 times when compared to two 1/2 inch pieces of rebar while speeding installation.
Older techniques, like rebar, involve drilling through the post and pounding in a piece of rebar, or nailing a piece of wood to the post. Either one is only as strong as the material used to join it. Rebar is widely used in the construction industry to build floor slabs, walls, and concrete posts. Cracks are very common in construction projects, so adding the Rebar can prevent these cracks from ruining your project. Installing traditional rebar is a 6 step process, but our Uplift Plate can be installed in only 3 steps. Our Uplift Plate is Stronger Than Rebar, Quicker Than Rebar, and Better Than Rebar.
