LINX™ Simplified Pergola System


We have a new product just introduced from Wild Hog Products that we are really excited about. The LINX Simplified Pergola System is an easy to build pergola that uses modular high-grade steel tubing with precision welding for a strong, exacting fit on 4x4 or 6x6 wood posts.


The LINX system allows you to configure a pergola as large as you like with three connector combinations for beams and post. Accessories include sun screens and hammock.

LINX Trifit 4x4 bracket

The Trifit is at the core of the LINX Pergola System




Building your personal oasis is a snap with the Trifit connector. You can create a square or rectangular shaped pergola with just four brackets. Used at each corner of the pergola, they connect the posts with each beam.


The Trifit along with the Tetrafit and the Pentafit form the backbone of the LINX sytem. All brackets are powder coated for a long-lasting, durable finish and wood screws are included for assembly. Available in 4x4 or 6x6.

STIX™ Engineered Structural Timber


Engineered structural timber from Wild Hog Products is the perfect combination to build your pergola from. Made from kiln-dried Western Red Cedar, STIX Timber is engineered to limit twisting, warping and splitting. The hollow core 6x6 timbers are easy to handle and build from, plus you can conceal the wiring for your pergola lights inside.


Tight grained, Western Red Cedar is naturally decay resistant and if left alone will turn to a silvery patina or you can stain or paint to any desired color. Structurally certified, STIX Engineered Structural Timber carries a 10 year warranty and is available in a 6x6 timber in 8', 10' and 12' lengths.

Trolley cars on the trestle bridge at Trestle Glen

Trolley cars of the Oakland Transit Company crossing the trestle, in use from 1894-1904, that connected Park Boulevard to Longridge Road


The Trolley Car Trestle at Trestle Glen


The residential neighborhood of Trestle Glen got its name from the trolly line that was extended out of downtown Oakland. The year was 1893 and Francis Marion “Borax” Smith’s Oakland Traction Company built over what is now Lakeshore Avenue a large wooden trestle bridge. With a destination far way from downtown, the trolley line was to carry picnickers across Indian Gulch and into Sather Park.


As one visitor remembered: “In those days Trestle Glen was a long ways from the city of Oakland… on the floor of the glen at the end of the bridge a pavilion was erected and suitable outbuildings for restaurants, etc., were built nearby. Dances, conventions, camp meetings, and gatherings of various kinds kept the glen pretty well patronized during the summer months. The Salvation Army held its annual camp meeting there on several occasions at which time Trestle Glen was about the busiest, liveliest place in the East bay region…”
