Can I drill the hole in the top bigger to insert a solor light and tack the sides to my 4x4 post?

I want to put a light in the top going up my ramp,
Asked by: DIYER
If you are careful. I would drill sides that I wanted to nail. Driving a nail through the plastic will probably split the plastic but not sure.

Is this product available in white PVC?

I would strongly prefer white post caps. Are white PVC caps available?
Asked by: ABC
White Rust-Oleum that bonds to plastic will do it very well. I've also sprayed 1-2-3 primer on them and gotten a few years from that.

will rain water get in the hole on top and stay? How will it drain out?

Asked by: pt
Yes - water, like electricity - will always find the path of least resistance. In this case, it'll drip through to the 4 x 4. If you're not using the hole to attach the cap to the 4 x 4, it can be sealed with clear drying silicon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Installed a fence last year, wanted some caps for the posts but didn't want to spend a lot and didn't want white ones. I found these on the website and ordered them to the store, they came in within a week. These pretty much just sit on top of the post with a very small overlap on the edges of the top, and secure with one nail in the middle. They seem to do the job, I've seen water puddled around the nail on top so the nail must seal to the plastic decently well, and they give your fence a finished look as well.
