    I need to build something like this as a screen since our deck towers over our neighbors yards on both sides. How is that attached to the deck?
    I used these and ran bolts through the deck...

    How stable are these? I’m planning a roof over my firewood area but wasn’t sure how stable these things are just going into 2x4’s

    Side to side it is a rock, but because I just have the two uprights, I wouldn't suggest going full trapeze off of it front to back, but she seems pretty solid overall. Some flex if you grab it and push and pull hard but nothing I am worried the wind or anything will cause any problems. I have it right up against the railing too so it can only move so much even if it does flex. If you were doing 4 post uprights and brace the tops corners I am sure it would be super stable.

    It's a clever blend of not 7/64" and not 9/64" but still not 3mm either.
    Um... So you haven't tried 1/8" then? because 1/8=3.125mm not 3mm

    Ha!
    Yeah, I've tried fucking everything. The fact is it's supposed to be 7/64" and either their tolerances are off, or those of my multiple hex keys are off, or most likely both.
    So the 7/64" sort of works, but not very well. So I can't get it very tight. I tried a tiny drop of Loctite last time, but I thinki might go bigger next time.

    Hah, I was just bugging ya about the obvious. Tekton makes some fairly dimensionally accurate ones - but Chinese setscrews are all over these days.

    Moen has a proprietary hex size don't they? I had the same problem with the ones in my house when I was replacing the cartridges. Then the chrome started flaking off so I replaced them and then smashed the faucets to bits.
