Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by These do the job I'm giving these covers only 4 stars because both of the ones I received had casting defects at one corner of the 3 X 3 hole. I thought about smoothing out the defects with a file, and then using the touch-up paint, but in the end I chose to install them as they came to me. Be aware that the cross-bolts that you use to install the posts to the base have to be installed low enough so that they don't interfere with these covers -- otherwise the covers won't sit down on the post mounting surface. See my review of the posts for more details on that. July 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the cost We debated whether or not we needed to install base covers with our porch railings. My husband encouraged me to go ahead and order them and I was not disappointed. The base covers give the posts a finished and professional look. Plus, with small children out and about, it's nice to know that all the screws are covered. Very glad that we ordered these! May 27, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Makes installation look more professional. The post base cover looks nice and sturdy, and it would give the whole set up a more polished look, but the cover is just too wide for where I wanted to install the post. The base cover measures 6"X6" at the bottom which is its widest point. The narrowest part at the top where the post slides in is a little over 3.5" square. It does fit the 3"X3" post. The base of the post without the decorative covering measures 5"X5". I would still recommend if the base cover fits where you want to install the railing. I think the base cover is pricey. I think it should come with the post instead of having to buy separate. October 8, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The base cover The end product, if installed correctly, is excellent. A primary concern would be in its installation: skill and tools. You need both, especially a chop saw and impact driver/drill, depending upon which surface the railing is being installed. In my case, a second story application required four-foot segments (code) which means a lot of cutting. Also, be careful when ordering that the proper amount of posts, railings, couplings, post covers, etc., are ordered. Read descriptions carefully. For example, when ordering a railing, you DO NOT get necessary posts--just the balusters and rails. Also mentioned casually, for a nicely finished system, the post base covers are required. Pricey addition! April 17, 2010
