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

This kit contains - mounting post with flange, Qty 2 composite sleeve inserts, and Qty 1 metal plate for bottom mouniting bracket. No screws or bolts are provided with the package.
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

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

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
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 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 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
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
