Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be used for mailbox posts ?

Asked by: DW
It works fine for my mailbox in the hard rocky Colorado soil. Yes there is a slight shakiness compared to the solid feel of burying the 4x4 post itself, but it is no big deal. I suppose you could dig a small hole to bury the top of the metal after attaching the post to reduce that.

Would a small 4-lb sledge hammer drive it in?

Asked by: Yao
Not in my ground. I used a 10 pound sledge and it was hard work. It depends on the soil where you live, of course.

24 in. Grey Groundmaster Post System is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 out of 6 survived the full pounding into hard clay ground with very little rock. They all twis... 2 out of 6 survived the full pounding into hard clay ground with very little rock. They all twisted, the first one I was able to bend enough to line up with the fence. The second one the wields holding the top to the stake broke and it took over an hour to get it pulled out. The third using the same hole made from the second attempt made it in but a half hour to get the 4"x 4" block out so I could put the post in which felt like it was mounted to a coil spring. Thy forth started twisting but I notice that the stake was not twisting but the top of the stake at the wields holding the top was bending with the same results with tries 5 and 6. I am over it and done with these for sure!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Missing Nuts and Bolts The Groundmaster Post will sometimes twist as you pound it into the ground. Out of 17 purchased 6 were missing nuts, bolts or both.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What a disappointment !st time I used this post was on a 6 foot fence on soft sandy ground, the fence is a little shaky but has held the fence up for 8 months now. My 2nd and last experience was with a 6 foot fence in rather hard clay soil. The first post I did get driven in but it took 20-25 minutes to get the 4x4 used to drive the post in, out. The 2nd post started twisting as the part that the post mounts to started bending where it is welded to the lower part of the post. It bent bad enough that I had to pull it and that took over an hour. the third post started bending too, so I start tapping on it instead of pounding. After a little over 30 minutes I almost had it all the way in and the welds broke that holds the top of the post that the 4x4 post mount in and then fell off. I didn't even try to pull it that would have been a nightmare. I went and paid $5 more for a similar type of post but of a heavier Gage steal and better welding points for the top. I had no further problems on the next 10 post to finish the fence. With the more expensive post anchors the fence is much more solid and not shaky like with this cheaper inferior post anchor. I do not recommend using this product nor will I ever use them again. I'll save money by paying a little more for something that works rather than fighting to make something work that doesn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, but worth it I planned to buy a cement block with brackets to replace an old mailbox post. However, a Mission Viejo, CA Home Depot sales associate did recommend this product and I am glad for this expert advice. It too me no time to install it, despite my doubts as I heard that the spike could bend with hard soil or if rocks are present in the ground. To avoid this, I did stick a 4 ft metal rod into the ground to sample the best location and within a short time, could place the post anchor without any issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Post System much easier than digging post holes and esecially for folks in windy areas ... no worries about pouring cement!! Makes the job much easier. At times it can be difficult to get them into rocky ground straight, but overall was definitely worth the $.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier and Faster Than Concrete I started using these post mounting systems 18 months ago. Previously for 40 years I had dug holes and used concrete to install posts. I will never go back to concrete. These steel post holders are not always so easy to drive if you have hard soil, it takes some muscle. I put a short 4"X4" block of wood into the steel post holder to make it easier to drive and to avoid damaging the steel. Then I take the short block out after the post holder it is driven into the ground. I replace short wood block with the long wood post. To make it easier to take the short block of wood out, I coat the interior pocket of the steel post holder with oil. It is also not always easy to drive them into the ground so that they are perfectly 90 degrees, it takes some skill. But once you worked out all of the little tricks and techniques of using them, the Groundmaster Post System is much faster and easier than digging a hole and using concrete. Removing Goundmasters is easier than removing concrete post holders. A car jack can make a great Groundmaster removal tool if you need help pulling them out. It would be an improvement if the post holders had more tips on how to install and remove the post holders added to the labels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, easy to use I purchase this to place a single 4 x 4 post outside our kitchen window, upon which I mounted several bird feeders. Very easy to install with just a 3lb sledge hammer. Quite stable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Work good, but only for a short time I bought and used 2 of these last summer. They went in very easy and saved a ton of time. Now one year later they are useless, the post part in the ground has rusted and both posts are leaning very bad. I have to dig them out, and replace with concrete.
