Customer Questions & Answers

How far down the post does the lip go?

Asked by: Tammy
enough to help protect your post but I would say about 3/16 of an inch

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: Anonymous
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.

Do these caps fit a standard treated 4x4 post? No PVC, just a standard post

Most of the caps that say 4x4 are too big because they are made for use with a vinyl fence post. Not what I want, just a standard treated 4x4.
Asked by: Anonymous
They fit with a little wiggle room, and snug up nicely when in nailed in place.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy Finishing Look This cap is a great, inexpensive, way to finish off the top of those vertical 4x4's. After reading another customer comment about water pooling near the nail in the top (thanks for that comment), I applied some Silicone RTV and smoothed it out. It dries clear. These would be fantastic for a fence to keep the water damage of the top to a minimum. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from plactic post caps I bought 40 post caps they fit the 4x4s very good but i never could find out if they were paintable so I rough them up with sand paper and painted them I hope is sticks if they are paintable I would give they 5 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job Installed these because the squirrels were always chewing up the metal ones. Less than half of the price of the metal ones. They fit tight, look fine, do the job and the squirrels have no interest. Win win

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cover me Fit 4 x 4 post on my wooden fence perfectly and were easy to install. Will prevent water damage to open end of post at a very reasonable cost.
