Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by remodelrx strong support post
This made a perfect solution for our project since we did not want to cut the top deck (which would defeat the purpose of our water tight aluminum decking) to insert a 4x4 post. We were able to use this post kit to surface mount it and slip a sleeve over it. This made a very strong and secure railing. Double check the inside dim. on the 4x4 sleeve (this kit will not fit all post sleeves). Or in our case we use wood spacers since our post sleeves were not made for this kit. We used this post kit instead of the kit that our post sleeve called for because this was $10.00 lower, and the post kit was taller, allowing for more strength and a stronger railing. Note that this kit includes plates for mounting to concrete or wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gary Well designed system
Excellent product designed to work with their kits and systems. I was amazed how well and strong the units are when properly assembled. I was mounting it to composit decking and it looks amazing. My neighbors thought I used treated 4x4 and were surprised when I showed them the support system. Read the directions and everything will last for many years of maintenance free enjoyment knowing you have a safe railing system.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marty worked great
I am constantly searching for new ways to install safety rails for my elderly customers. I used these on concrete steps, using concrete anchors. I used top rail for the hand rail, drilling through it, the white vinyl post, the spacer, and the post. Bolted with a stainless carriage bolt, and drove a 1" PVC cap on each end. Looks much better than galvanized pipe, and vinyl sleeve and cap should help keep down the rust.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CeeFee Great inner structure for the Trex outer post sleeve.
This item was just what I needed, after a little tweaking.
I had a space constraint and this item fit the bill.
