Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AmateurFencePro Nice for removable fence
I wanted to build a section of removable fence so that if I ever needed to get something large in my back yard I could do so, these sleeves worked perfect!. I build 1 whole section of removable fence then built 2 gates in another area and used a sleeve to create a removable center post to eliminate gate sag. The post slide in and out of the sleeves easily, and are easy to install. If your going to remove the post for access you will want to cut them off flush and find a plug so debris don't fill your sleeve. Also be sure to use plenty of gravel under your sleeve for good drainage.

These are great for being able to remove 4x4's easily. I used this for RV parking where I can have two secure gates that meet a 4x4 in the middle that can be removed when needed. The 4x4 slips in an out. Also, much easier to cement into the ground than the 4x4 itself.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by redhed Good product, Great idea
I bought these to put up two 4 x 4 clothes line posts that I want to be able to put away for the winter up here in Maine. I debated just using an appropriately sized piece of PVC pipe but came across these in my search for ideas. My only issues with them are that I wish they were a little thicker material and longer. The frost line up here goes pretty deep some years so I'm curious how that will play out in the coming spring. So far they are working great but haven't been removed/replaced after a winter. My advice using them is dig as small a diameter hole as possible that allows you to set the post if you have any sort of lateral load being applied and are not setting them in concrete. The lateral load I have is obviously clothes on the line. This is more physics than product related. I can see no issues with a straight up and down force other than if you have to replace a 4 x 4, what do you have to move or disassemble above them to allow you to get it out.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hendo1685 Very tough to get on 4x4 post.
It was very difficult getting the protector on my 4x4 post. I gave up. Only used 1 and half of the protectors. I bought a 4 pack.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bimbo Looks like these will be excellent!
The proof will be determined over the long term. They appear to solve a hugh problem as digging out the old termite ridden poles was really difficult. These sleeves should allow us to easily replace the poles in the future. They are well formed and heavy duty.

After reading reviews I was worried these were gonna be too weak, but was glad to see they're made of thick plastic. They seem to hold the posts up very well. Getting them perfectly level is kind of a nightmare, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons. Will be using these again when I replace the rest of my fence. They fit treated 4x4's perfectly. Not sure about untreated wood.

Wood fence posts don't last as long as they use to. These sleeves make it easy to replace rotten posts without digging new holes. Slide the old post out and slide the new one in. They are easy to install and most likely prolong fence post service life.
