Insert brackets are used to insert wood slats (i.e. a 2x4) in between 2 existing wood posts such that the 2x4s are inline and "flush" with the posts. These brackets are extremely versatile and can be used in all of the following ways:

The brackets are open at the "top" (at whatever angle you choose to orient them) so the 2x4 wood slat can be inserted "from above" after you've secured the brackets to the existing posts. Thanks to the unique design of these insert brackets, you can orient the 2x4 slats at any angle you choose between -45 degrees and 45 degrees.
