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 2.0 out of 5.0 by FixitGuy 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.

This is a great and fast way to do short term fencing.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jay Waste of time and money for mailbox
Took the lazy route instead of burying a few feet of mailbox post and decided to try this. Bad move. It was easy enough to sledge in, but you're left with the whole bracket needing to remain above ground so you can ratchet it tight. Worse is that because the actual wood post is only attached to 4 inches of this, it wobbles like crazy. After a few months of that nonsense, I pulled it up, ratcheted it to the mailbox, dug a real post hole and buried it another 4 inches. Still wobbles.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Weekender A complete waste of time and money
The fence post anchor system doe s not work. In soft solid, the posts won't remain in place. In hard soil the box bends long before it is ever down all the way and good lock with the post ever being straight. Even if you can manage to get it completely down, the steel isn't thick enough to be able to hold the post steadily in place over time. Do yourself a favor and do not buy this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mspoodah Makes for a solid fence
Makes for a solid fence. Much easier and more solid than digging a post hole.

Easy to drive into the ground. New mailbox is very sturdy with this. No digging, no concrete!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mick 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.
