deck post caps

I have a deck that has 10 plus post and I am looking for post caps size 5.5 X 5.5 in but you don't have 5.5 X 5.5 and only has 6 X 6 would this size work with my post size 5.5 X 5.5. thanks, also looking for some one to install them. thanks. I can buy with or w/o solar lights.

I too have 6x6 posts. The cap fit perfectly . you will have to seal the hole in the top center where you may or may not place a fastener. I purchased 60 of them and installed in less than an hour and a half. A suggestion, if you use stainless fasteners, you can get fingernail polish the color of the cap and touch up the heads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Effective Post Caps We were looking for a simple and effective way to protect the 15 6X6 posts on our deck. We wanted a low maintenance, unobtrusive, and economical way to keep rain out and they needed to look good too. These caps filled the bill. We installed with #8 coated common nails with a dab of caulking inside the nail hole to prevent leakage there. They've only been installed for a month but so far so good. An installation tip is to make sure you don't over drive the nail as that creates a hollow that can hold water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and Effective I build a small pergola over my patio and I wanted something to cap the cut ends of my 6x6 posts. I didn't need anything showy, and the price on these caps was much lower than anything else I found for 6x6. They are plastic, but they seem to be durable. They attach with a single screw from the top. They don't come with a screw, but that's no big deal. You have to be a little careful that when you put the screw in, that you don't create a low spot in the center where water will collect. I personally would have used something else closer to eye level, but these fit the bill for my project and the price was very reasonable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Warps in sun The post covers looked so good when we first put them on, but within a month all of the ones that were in the sun warped! We live in a foothill forest and so the sun is not that hot and is often dappled more than full sun, yet they still warped. The ones that are mostly in full shade are okay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purpose driven and delivered When seeking a protective measure for the 6x6 posts for my decks I found that this product served the purpose perfectly and was very inexpensive and easy to install.
