Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoeFusion Ideal for bird house installation!
Ditch the cement and the fence post digger, this is the easiest way to install a 4 inch (3 1/2 X 3 1/2 inch) post! Add the Home Depot 4 inch PVC cladding and you have a weatherproof, sturdy and attractive post for mounting any size bird house. HD will cut the post to exact length to match the cladding and the box holding the post (the box has predrilled holes for adding wood screws.) And it can be moved if you find a better location! I've purchased two already and will use this technique again in the future. An 8 pound sledge and some scrap 2 X 4 is all you need to install it (plus an inexpensive post level is helpful for a straight installation.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JMH Time saver
This was a great idea. Saved me time and money. I thought about going the conventional way of digging a hole and fillimg it with rock and cement but this fence post saved my back and money.

Only issue is when the ground is hard. Fairly difficult to drive in the whole ~15 inches.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by F150 Square fence post install
This Fence post device makes installing a post, in the most difficult places. Whether rock hard soil or clay, this is a must have tool. It is not that hard to install if you follow the instructions. I just wish I had found this much earlier, as I worked and exhausted myself trying to use a post hole digger, then just gave up getting it done, this was a life saver. It works GREAT!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by red1949 Delivery Rapid. Great Quality
While building a new deck addition, discovered that in some areas where I needed to install posts there just happened to be a sunken oil tank that had been emptied and filled with sand (do to a leak years ago). There was only about 2+ feet avail to install my post(s) so instead of relying on concrete, as I wanted to insure not only sufficient support but also long term stability, I purchased OZ Post. They arrived within a few days via UPS. I opened the box and was absolutely amazed at the quality. Sturdy, easy to handle, and of high quality material. Have not installed them as of yet but plan to do so this weekend. Will update with results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Donkster Worked flawlessly!
I had doubts this would work. Even my friends doubted. My 6 foot stockade post rotted off at ground level. It was in a very narrow place - almost impossible to dig the rest of the post out. I drove the post directly into the remains of the buried, rotted post. Used a big sledge hammer following the instructions I saw on YouTube. It went perfectly and is now VERY tight and secure. The only bad thing about the Oz Post is that it's pretty expensive ($18). I only needed one, but if you needed 10 it would be pricey. Also, for some reason most Hardware stores DO NOT stock them. Not Lowes. Not Ace, Tru-Value, and not even Home Depot. I had to special order it at Home Depot and have it delivered to the store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rdowl A Great Stake!
I used this for anchoring my mailbox. It worked perfectly! You can also use these for a fence. I drove it into the ground using a piece of post inserted into it, a sledge hammer, and a small hand level. Driving the stake in by hand was NO problem for me. Of course I only had one. If I had more than say 10 you might want to take your time or rent the "driver". I had no problem keeping it plum, but it did want to rotate ever-so-slightly. If a small amount of rotation is an issue, use a post with a good size hole drilled through it horizontally. Then insert a steel bar through the hole and twist it until it is aligned up better. note: a strong bar is needed to do this as the stake is very solid. When I finished I had a solid, sturdy mailbox.
