Where do I go to get these? The local marina is out of their mind with prices on these pieces of hardware. Where can I go and buy only what I need. They can't be more than a few bucks a piece.
What I need is the horizontal and vertical clamps pictured.

Did you try a fence supply company? Home Depot or Lowes? Maybe Tractor Supply Company (TCS)

geez, tough one
I've tried
Scaffolding clamps
playground equipment clamps/connectors
horse stall clamps
KEEŽ Connectors
Pipe hangers
Pipe connectors
every galvanized option I could think of

these guys got pretty close http://www.atec-systems.nl/en/producten/group02.html

I think I'd try something that would clamp directly onto the verticle and add a bolt/lag bolt to keep it at the proper height.


you mentioned needing the verticle & horizontal parts...
are you talking about the pieces pictured that have the angle iron for the boards?
these trapeze saddle hangers look pretty close with modification

Can you try a fence manufacturer and have the parts custom built, see www.precisioncanada.com. They build piers and do custom stainless and aluminum work.

It needs to be able to clamp on a vertical post WITHOUT a hole through the post, and be able to sustain say 400#'s horizontaly. So they need a bolt in the clamp on both sides of the post. It has to be adjustable up and down.

The other piece needs to be able to clamp up to a piece of angle aluminum for where the wood beams rest.

Fence posts and clamps usually use bolts through the posts. I can't have that.

How many to you need?

Depends on what they cost. I am thinking we would like to add about 40' in length and make the end section 10' X 12' instead of the 10' X 8'. If that were the case, I am thinking we would need about 16 or so ends, and 10 or so top mounts.

Why do you ask, do you have a place we can get them?

I bought a place in Michigan last spring - and it came with an old pier (which I replaced). I have a number of poles/brackets sitting in my boathouse. I only used 2 of them for a kayak lift - and think I have 6 or so lying around. I'll check this weekend to see how many I have...

You are suggesting using something like this???? This is the closest thing I could find on their website, and at that, not even close to what I need.

I think so - I'll check it out this weekend.

Where in Chicago do you live and where do you boat??

their website doesnt seem to do them justice. none of the parts i buy there are even on there. i guess it doesnt do you much good unless there is one where you live.
