Build your own dock with this hardware and the lumber you purchase separately.

We offer a complete line of rugged dock hardware for building a dock at your summer cabin or waterfront home. Designed primarily for non-commercial users, it's sturdy enough for boatyards and smaller marinas.

Commercial Grade (1/4”) Tie Down Dock Hardware is designed for use with 1-1/2” thick lumber (sold separately, minimum width 6”). All hardware is mounted with 3/8” carriage bolts. All male and female dock to dock connections are made with either 3/4” bolts with lock nuts or 3/4” connecting pins. Tie Down's Wood Dock Planning Kit will show you the basics of building a lightweight and long lasting floating dock system.
