    on my screened in porch, the 4x4 posts going from the header down to the slab were held in place by a metal clip on the bottom of the post..this clip goes underneath the post and most likely anchored into the concrete....the clips are now rusted out and the posts are ''floating'........how do you re -secure these posts without removing the screen framing ???

    You can't. You'll have to attach new brackets to the post and drill into the concrete to secure them to the porch. You can use some angle or L-brackets to make the connection between the post and the cement surface.
