Foundation screws - can they handle horizontal/lateral force?
I want to put up a 6x6 post in the garden behind our detached garage to mount a garden hose reel we have. For the fact I just need a single post I prefer not to dig and do concrete and my only other option is attaching to the garage but that's a bit of a pain to do nicely with the siding. I have been looking and can't find a solid answer but can these foundation screws handle a lateral force very well? The easiest option would be a foundation screw with a 6x6. Of course in this application essentially all of the force will be horizontal from pulling the hose out across the years from the reel. Will this hold up?
