Purchase 2 recently for a project and had them delivered to my home. When I opened them, one was complete but the other was missing ALL hardware. Returned it to store and had sent. The package contained one post bolt, a 4" threaded rod and an industrial LED lighting igniter! Neither Home Depot nor Tiger Brand was willing to assist in a resolution to the problem. While the post works well if you have all the parts, quality control at Tiger Brand and customer support are non-existent.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rob works, but kinda rickety
I recommend this product with some reservations. Another reviewer commented that a bit of welding did wonders for usabillity, to which I would concur. However, this depends on your use - as I was using it for temporary bracing, and moving it around, the issues that made it awkward for me would not bother an install-it-and-leave-it use case.
What made it less than ideal for my moveable-temporary-bracing case: All the parts just sit on top each other; no stampings are press-fit tolerance. This means that when you release it to move it, the top plate is loose (watch yer head) as is the actual threaded rod and the nut/cap it sits in. Bottom plate also loose. Note that the top plate cannot be welded to the threaded rod, or you'll lose your adjustment ability as you try to rotate the top plate.

Ordered this online and received it on time! It was great to use and for a great price. It allowed me to fix a sagging roof by adding supports without concerns of safety!

I needed the 8'4" ones. Installing the long ones is easier with 2 people.

The post was found to be used after we brought it home. If it were not a desperate situation it would have been returned but we had to use it. Very disappointing to pay full price for something that was used and resold as new.

Arrived quickly when I needed them. Tubing is thin walled and the two tubes are a loose fit so it was difficult to plumb it in place because when assembled the upper tube is not straight with the lower tube. The end plates just sit on a stub so it takes two people to put it in position (one holding the assembled tube and one positioning the upper plate and holding it in place while tightening the adjustment screw). Otherwise the upper plate will slip off it's stub and come down on your head.
The two bolts and cap screw were easy to install on each post and tighten. On a positive note once the post was positioned and some compression established to hold the upper plate in place it was easy to adjust. To improve installation I would put a couple of wraps of 3'' tape around the smaller tube just above and below the bolt holes to keep the tube assembly straight and use an adhesive to keep the upper plate in place if you intend to install it with only one person. In the end it did the job so was a fair deal for the price.

This will certainly get the job done, but I was disappointed to find the metal plates are not attached the the tubing or the screw. They are separate, loose pieces that you have to situate while you hold everything in place. This makes using this a little more awkward than necessary and it's easier to lose pieces when stored. I will probably weld the fix plate to the tube myself - something the manufacturer should do to make this easier to use and prevent losing these parts.
