Heavy Duty Dock Brackets vs. Light Duty Dock Brackets

Hey guys, Kevin here from Lakestyle. I thought I’d make a quick video to show you the difference between a heavy-duty bracket and a light-duty bracket. On the left you’ll see the heavy duty bracket, which is essentially twice the size of a light duty bracket. You would use the heavy duty bracket for conditions where it is wavy or windy or you have lots of traffic or heavier weights on your dock.  You would use the light duty brackets where this isn’t the case; where it’s in a more sheltered area and probably not as much traffic.

Top-Quality, Easy to Install Dock Brackets

All brackets have a grey polyester powder coated finish. The bolts that you use to attach the bracket are all stainless steel. Each bracket also comes with its own set of hardware. You have a bolt, which bolts onto one section of dock and the pin on the other section of dock, and this connects the two sections together. You also have a handy set of instructions that comes with each bracket that shows you exactly how to complete the installation. The hardware is housed inside the bracket when it ships.

If you have any questions on these brackets or the applications, feel free to give us a shout, we would be happy to help!
