Pier parts

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)

Tried, wrong sizes, and wrong styles.

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
http://www.hooverfence.com/catalog/cpage44.htm


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.
