Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ET777 Choices for Post Jackets
I had to purchase one of each each so I could determine what the differences were as it was not clear in
the product description. There are two choices in the 39" length: #73003561 sells for $11.97; while #73012475 sells for $14.47.
The difference is in the outer layer. Again, you get what you pay for. The higher priced jacket has a slightly
thicker outer skin. If your railing get a lot of sun and heat , you may want to go with a higher grade.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete Exactly as expected
A bit thinner walls than the 72" variety, but cut to a standard length of 39" for rail post application.
Ordered from the comfort of my living room with my fuzzy slippers on and delivered straight to my door. Could not have been more convenient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Texas123 Post covers work very well with Veranda post install kit
These are simply 4x4 covers that slide over the Veranda post install kit. They match perfectly with all the Veranda railing pieces. I installed Veranda Pro Rail around my entire patio and down my patio stairs. Normally the Pro Rail is used with the 5x5 post covers but I preferred the look of the smaller post and since all of my corners were 90 degree I could use the 4x4 post/cover. Everything worked as designed and the finished product looks wonderful. Remember this is a plastic/PVC product and all the screws go into plastic so you need to be careful not to over tighten (I also pre-drilled and ended up going through a couple of the square drive bits). Once everything is assembled the railing is very sturdy, some of my railings were just under the maximum length and even those feel sturdy. Since none of this product is stocked locally I was concerned that if I messed something up I would have to reorder and wait for it to arrive, by following the directions and being very careful everything worked fine. I did call Veranda with a couple of questions, once before I placed my order and once during installation, their support people were easy to reach and very knowledgeable about the product. Using this railing system was much less expensive than wrought iron, I believe it looks much better and it will never need painting, of course the big reason it was less expensive is my wife and I had to install it ourselves.

Installed these on post kits between the columns on our porch connecting the two vinyl railing kits. I prefer the look and feel of wood but these turned out very well.

I installed these post for a porch railing and we can't believe how good it looks. Just be sure to get all supplies that match you're application. I got caps that were for a wood 4x4 so it was too small. (31/2 x31/2) These take an actual (4x4)

The posts were of great quality. I didn't realize I ordered the wrong size and had to extend them, but that was my fault.

I am happy with these and how they dress up a ugly necessity. I only wished they came a few inches longer
