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.

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.

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 SoCalDYI 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.

Somebody took out our mailbox and post with their truck, however -5 below zero weather meant setting a new post in concrete was not going to work. This stake worked out great and provided a good repair solution.
