Ordering/Specifying Information… When ordering, these beam caps are shown with an 'X' at the end of the part name. For example: BC4X – beam in the first number, 4 (3 9 ⁄16"); post size is the X, which is specified at the time of ordering. If you wish to order a BC46, specify BC4X with a 6 post size. BCC66 – W3&4 = 6 (5½"), and H2 & H3 = 6½" is a BC66 beam cap with 6 (5½") beams on each side with all beam seats flush. EBCL66L – W3 = 4 (3 9 ⁄16"), H2 = 8 is an EBC66 end beam cap with a 4x (3 9 ⁄16") beam on the left side (specify beam L for left side beam stirrup). The stirrup seat is 1 1 ⁄2" below the cap seat. Specify the height of the stirrup from the top of the cap. The minimum H for the stirrup is 6 1 ⁄2". The L dimensions may vary depending on W3. On order forms the naming convention follows some new rules. 1. The respective BC/BCQ/EBC/EBCQ Series name remains 2. The Width of the SKU remains 3. The Post width (legs) now varies and is indicated with an X When ordering, specify the Series/Width SKU and then specify a desired post size.
