Answer: 
No, You must purchase. Instructions call for a 3/8 in anchor but, be aware that the post actually are drilled on some post exactly 3/8 and therefore, you cannot get them to fit. But some of the post hole are actually drilled out larger. When I bought mine they were two different sizes. The 5/16 in wedge anchor bolt that we used worked great( mine was anchored in Concrete).

Answer: 
Actually, no. The mounting surface can vary (concrete, wood, etc.). The mounting hardware (bolts, screws, etc.), depending on what you are mounting them to.

Further - carefully consider how you are going to bolt and/or screw these to your deck/stringers as the instructions call for 3/8" bolts to be used. 3/8" bolts do not slide through the holes on the plates as manufactured. Read More

Answer: 
Frankie is correct, you need the bottom trim pieces when using this brand of inserts otherwise the black plate shows as the vinyl sleeve does not go all the way down to the decking/concrete where it is mounted. This is not the case for all metal inserts.

Yes they will - in fact you have to install sleeves over these - they are not meant to be used without a sleeve. It will look like the attached picture.

Answer: 
Make sure that you check that your anchor will actually fit into the holes on the post. Mine would not. I had to change to a 5/16 in anchor. I used a 5/16 in wedge anchor that was 2 1/2 in long. We drilled 5/16 in holes using a masonry bit and a hammer drill.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked well Since I had no 4x4 posts on the ares of my deck where the railing was to go, I installed four of these and they gave me a secure base to fasten my railing to. July 26, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ok product Difficult to work with . You ask my opinion and gave it to you August 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Post install kit does not fit post jackets! The post install kit is sold for use the the Veranda post jacket. However, the 2 plastic post inserts do not fit in the post jacket. they needed substantial sanding (around ⅛") off two sides of the post inserts. Even then, a lip on the inserts extend outside the jacket. On the plus side, the leveling plate mechanism works great but only if you have the proper screw ... Not included with the kit. August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid If you need an easy and solid way to attach your deck posts/sleeves to your deck surface and rails, then this is the product you want. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very solid posts, good materials Very solid posts, heavy duty metal construction. However, when installing the rails (with the recommended hardware) go to the tools section and buy a few hardened or carbon steel drill bits (it calls for 5/32 inch drill bits to pre-drill). I 'had' a half-dozen of that size, regular drill bits, none of which made it past putting-up the first rail - they all broke, no matter how careful I was in drilling. I believe it was due to the angle of the hole being drilled (not straight into the metal post - read your instructions carefully). Bought carbon steel drill bits (a bit more expensive - 2x the cost of a regular drill bit), but it took me less time to install the last four rails than it did to install the first one. June 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Post install kit - insert dimensions did not match post The post install kit was supposed to work with Veranda posts, however the dimensions of the plastic fitting of the post inserts which fit on the metal shaft were slightly larger than the post interior so, if driven in to the post, the post cracked. I had to manually sand down the inserts to make them fit. Additionally, the screws which came with the railing install kit were too long to work well with the post kit. If the post install kit matched the post and proper length screws were provided, I would give it high marks for quality and value. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Railings Great products and easy to install. The service at the home depot in Bellevue, WI was a one though. The department manager couldn't even help us, each time we spend 3,000 plus on a project they just aren't helpful, we received a horrible fridge we are stuck with and the list goes on, I think we finally learned to stop going. Don't try to email corporate or call the store no one will respond, they don't seem to care. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best product I could find I looked far and wide for a way to make a deck railing post, without using wood. i had to make a total of 7 railing posts - I did the first 2 with wood 4x4s, covered by vinyl sleeves, but was unhappy with the result. It took a lot of work, and was very hard to get level. I had to add extra braces to get the desired stability. I did the final 5 posts using this product. It offers good stability, and the kit includes screws for leveling out the posts, which makes the overall install much easier. I used two 2x6 pieces under the deck to provide a thicker surface for these posts. In some cases, I used my own 6" long wood screws to secure them. This product is perfect for someone like me - an engineer who is not very artistic, and can't always cut a straight line in wood. This post takes all the variables out - you are guaranteed to get a perfectly straight, level post every time, that will withstand the weather. I will never use any other product - I just wish these were cheaper.. I combined this product with some sleeves also bought at Home depot. July 12, 2015
