gets the job done
Your review: I bought this flange to connect a catwalk railing banister to a brick wall. The railing terminus was unattached; instead, there was simply a recess cut into the masonry. This flange correctly acquires the banister (a 1.5" pipe), and the base's holes allow you to secure the device to the brick wall. I have not yet connected it to the wall. **Sent to CS 66
Pros: Flange fits perfectly: enough wiggle room to let it acquire the 1/5" pipe/banister, but still tight enough that you feel secure. Dimensions: ID 1.94", OD 2.4" approx, base .35" thick X 4.45" wide; flange depth (to acquire the 1.5" pipe) is 2-1/16". The base has a 1.53" bottom recess, to stop the 1.5" pipe from passing through the base. Base has 4 fastener holes, 5/16" diam., but they will not accept a 5/16 lag screw; I will attach the flange to my brick wall with 3/16" Tapcon masonry screws, which fit OK, but 1/4" would be a little more snug.
Cons: Global Industrial's support staff were no help. I tried to get the dimensions before I bought the item, but they would not provide this. I asked 3 time: live chat, email and telephone. No email response. Promises of follow-up on chat and phone were not fulfilled. Pathetic approach to customer service. This is why I left the detailed dimensions here.
