What is the actual measurement of the top, the middle square and the next step down outer measurement
Asked by: AJ

Are the post caps ready to stain or must the wood dry out for a certain period of time?

If it needs to dry, how long do you need to wait before staining?
Asked by: Mackdaddy
Hello Mackdaddy, These posts caps come ready to paint or stain. Like any pressure treated wood there may be some retained moisture so always check the caps before painting or staining. I hope this helps. Cheers, Chris

are these caps 6 inches at the bottom?

Asked by: handywoman
Dear Valued HomeDepot Customer, We reached out to the MFG for more information and below is their response. "The post cap actual dimensions are 5 - 5/8 x 5 - 5/8 in., which are the same actual dimensions as a standard 6 x 6 post."

6 in. x 6 in. Wood Flat Fancy Post Cap (6-Pack) is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from HD must not have quality control in place. These are complete garbage! I think one out of the 3... HD must not have quality control in place. These are complete garbage! I think one out of the 30 we ordered was 'ok' but not good enough to install.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I had To FIGURE IT out The trim was too tight, on more than every one that I tried to put on.. which caused it to separate at the corners.. looking terrible... SO with a little thought and putting to use the 4 boxes that I bought. I simply drilled 4 screws ate each corner of the post to make a riser (this way the trip of the cap barely floated on the post.. Pre-drilled holes in the top and put a screw thru to lock it down on the improvised riser... Thought this would always help with the expansion of the wood, and extend the cheaply rusted staples life that held the trim pieces on.. Other than that, any cap will make a fence look good, but these are a good price.. so what do you expect for quality. Get them, if you feel like doing what I had to do to make them work like $8 caps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good price, but you get what you pay for! These caps are very reasonably priced. I bought them to replace my older, copper domed ones, whose collars kept splitting at the corners after years of exposure to rain, etc. Some of the caps had splits, but out of the 3 sets of 6 (total of 18) which I ordered, only 3 caps were unusable. Take note that your deck posts may expand with time and exposure to the weather. Hence, these caps may at first appear to be tighter than 6"x6" and difficult to install on your posts! It's not the caps! It's the posts! So you might wish to shave/sand your posts down a bit to allow for a better fit for the new caps.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chinese made junk First of all, these post caps do not even FIT a 6 x 6 post. I had to disassemble the trim to change the size of the inside trim diameter. The finish on the top looked like the router cutter was dull. The top was not sanded at all and looked like it was made as a first grade project,and I just insulted my Grand daughter who is in first grade. It has been 9 months including one Pa. winter, and they are warped and cracked. The trim is falling off because it was stapled on in a half done manner. Some of the staples were not even into the top plate. Sorry. Had to write a review about this garbage product. I ran them through my router to give them a better finish,then hand sanded all of them. I purchased 12 of them on line. Maybe I just expect too much.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Critical measurement missing I ordered 3 dozen of these. The critical measurement is missing: what size post will it fit on? the inside measurement is 5.5 inches. My posts are 5 inches wide so these will be a little big for them. The lower trim had come off on a number of the caps. I haven't installed them yet so don't know if I'll find them all in the box. Will update after I get them installed. Overall the ones that are all together look nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked great Used these on a new fence I built. I was going to make my own till I saw these and for the price it was a no brainer. Fit perfectly on my 6x6 pt posts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product - exactly as described Great product - they are sold in lots of six so I ended up with three unused but still had less expense than any other readily available option.
