Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gate Posts I would have no problem telling my friends, coworkers where and why I purchased this product from. I wasn't quite sure Home Depot would have it quite frankly but was pleasantly surprised when I did locate it and the price was right. I am modifying a military trailer and I am using these to make my side rails and rear gate for my trailer and it is working great. They are easy to cut and easy to weld. February 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sturdy and dependable fence posts They are heavy duty fence posts that last for years. Well worth the purchase. March 20, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Black Steel Fence Post We bought the 16pk steel fence, these posts, and the necessary brackets. These are sturdy and nice quality for the price, all the pieces fit together well. They will last for many years with minimal upkeep. July 1, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid purchase! The steel posts were to reinforce gate posts, and worked even better than i hoped. The steel fencing at Home Depot is a great value. June 11, 2014
