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.

Answer: 
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.

Hi Richard and thank you for your question. Yes, your vinyl post sleeve will slide over the post install kit so that your posts match your railing.

Does the post have a way to level it when installing?

I noticed that other manufactures of this kind of post kit allow the ability to level the post so that it is straight. This is done with adjustable set screws on the base plate. Can you do the same with this kit or do you have to use shims?

Thanks

Answer: 
Hi alba and thank you for your question. You can use your existing wood posts as structural support for your new railing. We offer post jackets to slide over the top so that your posts will match your new railing. They're not required, just aesthetic. Model #73003561.

Answer: 
What you see is what you get. Post sleeves are sold separately. Just a little advice I learned the hard way, buy the posts and kits at the same store. I bought the mounting posts at the blue store and the PVC post sleeves at the orange store and they weren't close to fitting, the PVC sleeve split in half.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
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
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Be careful before you buy this.... This post alternative looks good on paper but you need to think it through. First, the composite sleeves on the top and bottom of the asssembly are intended for you to fasten your railing sections using screws. But the sleeves are only about 3/16" thick. I don't know about you, but I would like to screw into something a bit more substantial than 3/16" soft composite material. Second, you should not use these for stair rail posts. Due to the angle of your railing there is a good chance that the sleeve inserts will not extend far enough (up or down) to catch the fastening point for the stair rail. I discovered this today, very frustrating. My solution is to leave the post in place but I will remove the top composite sleeve and slide PT down the full length of the post sleeve. This will give much better holding power. If I had to do it again I would not use this product for the stair rails. I would, however, consider using it for the deck rails. Like I said, think it through. October 22, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bad Info In Directions Directions read for concrete drill 3/8" holes for 3/8" wedge anchor. Wrong! First off post holes are not 3/8" they are smaller. No one at the company checks this?! Furthermore you'll never drill into concrete perfectly straight so you need wiggle room. Using 3/8" anchors on a 3/8" hole gives you none. You have to drop down a size to 1/4" galvanized wedge anchors. This gives you the ability to adjust your post and room if you drill into the concrete a little crooked. After learning this next 5 were much easier. Used composite shims to level. July 27, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stick to Wood Kit Absolutely the worst posts to work with. I had to use titanium coated drill bits to drill through the metal post which with the long screws is essential. I tried to use the Veranda line bracket kits with the white vinyl coated heads on the screws – forget it. They either broke or twisted off or the heads kept rounding out. I purchased two separate boxes of stainless steel #10 screws from Fastenal and one from True Value hardware thinking it was the screws but they did the same thing. However the Chinese tempered the steel post or they may have used a lot of chromium in it, it’s hard to drill with standard steel high speed drills and screws do not easily thread through it. Suggest you stay away from these kits. July 14, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk Instructions state holes are 3/8. NOT!!!! Had to buy a 3/8 steel cutting bit to drill correct size. Next bit of fun was wjhen I tried putting vinyl post over it. They too would not fit over plastic rims. Then I had to shave around rims so that post would go over. Complete waste of money. If only I could return but after doing the repair so to make them work they probably wouldn't give me my money back. Stay away!!! July 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Indestructible Steel Posts for Vinyl Railing Solid as a rock when installed per the manufacturer's instructions, made of heavy gauge steel. Had a contractor install these, but would be easy DIY under ordinary circumstances. May 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very sturdy. The posts worked well for my purpose. The only concern I had was the price. For the materials utilized, the market price was higher than I would have liked. December 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great item my son is a contractor and he recommended a product similar . when i saw these and told him they were half price he said to get them.we just finished installing 12 on a concrete wall.use 5/16 double barrel shield anchors. they wont go anywhere.my son was very impressed with the quality October 4, 2014
