Product Overview

  • Prevents Post Decay and Extends Post Life by 2.5 times
  • In-ground post without decay-causing soil or concrete contact
  • Environmentally Friendly, minimizes chemical leaching
Post Protector is a slide-on barrier system protecting in-ground posts from decay by eliminating soil-to-wood or concrete-to-wood contact. Decay occurs when the following conditions exist: Moisture saturation of wood fiber, Oxygen, Temperature 40-100°F. These conditions enable the soil dwelling micro-organisms, to colonize the post using the wood fiber as their food source. This consumption of the wood fiber is otherwise known as decay or rot. Post Protector allows for typical post-in-ground foundations without the decay causing micro-organisms ever having access to the post. The treatment in a pressure treated post is a pesticide used in an effort to make the wood fiber an undesirable food source for these micro-organisms. The treatment is effective initially but loses its effectiveness as the chemical migrates or leaches from the post over time. Post Protector eliminates this chemical migration and keeps the treatment with the post where it belongs. Common applications are decks, pergolas, fences, pole barns or any post-in-the-ground project. Available in 4 in. x 4 in., 4 in. x 6 in. and 6 in. x 6 in. x 42 in. and 60 in. lengths.
  • Simple slide-on installation
  • HDPE- material has 400 plus years of in-ground useful life
  • Lightweight, flexible and strong
  • Attractive appearance-rich clay tone color with wood grain texture
  • Easily trims to desired height above grade
  • Integral uplift protection
  • Stronger, faster and less expensive than concrete pier and steel bracket method
  • Protects post from weed eaters
  • Net opening size is 3-3/4 x 3-3/4
  • Includes(4 per post) 1/4 in. x 1-1/2 in. galvanized lags with EPDM bonded washers to attach Post Protector to post
  • Sku is 12 pieces total
  • Use attachment lags near grade level for ease of post removal/replacement

Questions & Answers

Can these be ordered or purchased in smaller quantities?

I only need two of these to sink two 4x4's into concrete. They look like they will be perfect but I only see large quantities for purchase. Can they be bought as singles, two pack or four pack?
Asked by: Chris
yes. You can order in any quantity. I believe the discount is at 10 or more if you need that many or more.

4 in. x 4 in. x 42 in. Post Protector (Case of 12-Pieces) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.

This is the best real solution to stopping fence posts from rotting above and below ground. I have researched all the past recommendations for protecting your posts from becoming weaker, rotting, or snapping off. All these past solutions are doomed to the same final death because they all fail to address the real cause of the problem. Post protector was actually the only one addressing the problem upfront and combating the problem directly. What a simple response to a simple problem. Why had no one come up with this long ago? All I know is, I enclosed my son's new property using post protectors. His investment deserves to be protected and the ease of using post protectors was just plan easy and simple. I'm a very satisfied customer and will never put another post in the ground without a post protector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed in Hawaii This is a brilliant product. Face it, wood fence posts WILL rot eventually, so if you pot them directly in concrete you (or someone else) will have to dig them out. Post protectors make it possible to simply slide out the the old post and slide in a new one. This is a brilliant solution and should be an industry standard for wood fence construction. They don't sell these here in Hawaii, so I packed up a dozen as 3 separate packages and brought them as checked baggage (no shipping cost). I hope Home Depot gets the message and begins stocking them at their Hawaii stores. Hey, Home Depot, I'm on Maui!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timely arrival What about this product? Innovative, easy to follow video, uncomplicated install and long lasting material (400 years - same stuff that line landfills) that protects the wood posts, as Fogey alluded to ease of replacement AND another major plus SUPERB customer service with the Post Protector company. We were under a tight deadline. The Home Depot online order indicated arrival time to be a day later than we needed. Found the company toll free number and spoke to rep, who expedited process and UPS delivered day needed. Both product and customer service are AMAZING!
