Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be used for mailbox posts ?

Asked by: DW
That's probably the ONLY thing it's good for. Don't rely on it for a fence, they break at the welds and your whole fence comes down.

Would this hold a birdhouse post?

Asked by: Gwen
Yes, Gwen, I think that this would work just fine for your birdhouse post. When I tightened the GroundMaster I found that for the post I was using, I had to put in extra, thin pieces of wood to act as "shims" so that when I tightened the bolts to secure the post, everything ended up really snug. Your post may NOT require this. My post might just have been slightly undersized. Hope you enjoy watching the birds!

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

Asked by: Yao
Yes. Just use a 5 or 6 inch long piece of the 4X4 post. Put that piece into the stake and hit that to drive the stake into the ground. My hammer had only a 12 or 14 inch long handle and it worked fine.

This winter the wind took the whole fence down, broke all three anchors off where the box is welded to the stake. Garbage, don't waste your time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nonway I used, or tried to use, 2 of these. If it hits anything hard (rock, clay, root, etc.) it bends. Both were about 5 inches from being completely installed and had be dug up, resulting in a HUGE hole. They are impossible to get out of the ground. Try it but if you have any resistance...STOP!!!

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 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.
