Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mastella Saved Me from spending over $10,000 on new fence.
My 22 year old cedar fence which enclosed our back yard and patio was in decent condition, but had many posts that had rotted at the base. There were a sections of the fence that were leaning and easily affected by the wind. I got some quotes for a new fence and was unpleasantly surprised at the increase in price. Example: $10500 if I removed the current fence on my own. I went online and came across this product. Went to local Home Depot and bought one. Tried it out on one fence post. The wobbly post I installed it on became solid as a rock. I went back the next day and bought 15 more. I am almost finished with the project and have spent less than $120. I expect to get another 5 to 10 years out of this fence.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tp totally worth it
This works as advertised and allowed me to avoid tearing out an old post. The result feels very solid and does not move when pushed. I did put on two, one on each side of the broken post.
I wouldn't support a major load, but it is perfect for saving an otherwise intact panel fence.
I do worry about how fast this will rust out, because you really mangle the notch where you pound it in. I also assume the concrete will scrape the powder coating pretty well, too.
Five stars because it does exactly what it should. Anything more would be magic.

Used two in the last month. Both posts were broken completely in two at the ground level.
I would have used two per post but the installation would not allow it. Nine screws per Mender
and very sturdy. It would help if the tab you strike to drive it in the ground was a little larger.
As is might be OK for a 4lb hammer but I was using an 8lb sledge ha.mmer. When the need
arises I will us this product again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lhn144 Easy to install the fence mender FPBM44E
It took less than 10 minutes to drive one into the concrete block that hold the fence post. Three (galvanized) nails on each side and 2 nails in the front plate to hold the mender to the post. Total time: less than 15 minutes to install one. I installed 4. One concrete block cracked and I just poured cement powder into the crack and then added water to it to seal and bond the crack.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TC Didn't have to spend 1/2 day digging out the old fence post!
When my fence was build, the concrete poured into the hole around the 4 x 4 fence post was 8" below the surface, and this provided an opportunity for the pressure treated post to rot above the concrete and break off.
This stake was just the ticked to penetrate through the concrete/fence post and make the repair successfully! There was a lot of pounding on the stake to get in the concrete but the finished product is wonderful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jim Repaired a fence with minimal digging.
I was able easily repair several rotted French posts, I did not want to reopalce the fence right now. It has enabled me to straighten the fence without all the digging and pouring new posts,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fixit64 Perfect solution
I had a six foot fence post rot out right at the top of the concrete that it was set in. This device was the best idea I've ever seen to correct that without pulling and replacing the entire post, a job that would have been too difficult under the circumstances of the type of fence. These post supports worked exactly the way they were described, and reinforced the post as if it had been replaced with a new one. Very satisfied with the result and I would not hesitate to use them again as this old fence ages. Great product that makes a time consuming post replacement unnecessary, and makes the post strong enough to do it's job.

Easiest and best fix on the market. 4X4 fence post was rotted at the base and on uneven ground. Took some effort but once completed it was as good as new.
