This is the post you'll need to complete the Helena 4' X 8' vinyl fence picket EZ Pack. It is an exact match to the one post already included in that package. Post cap and hole covers also enclosed. It appears fairly well made as far as vinyl fence parts go. Hardest part about installation is, of course, digging the hole and aligning to the other post properly. Post end goes in pretty deep (about 3 feet) and you'll need cement. Doesn't look like it gets dirty at all, but would be easy to wash when needed. You can install rails for above mentioned fence kit at any of 3 sides of the post. You can make a straight fence (180 degrees) or with more kits L or T shaped fences (90 degrees.) Doesn't look like you could make a sharper than 90 degree angled fence or an X shape. You just need one of these posts to end your fence. For example, if you want a 32' long fence you buy 4 kits and one extra post, (not 4 kits and 4 extra posts.) The fence posts are hollow and need to be filled to a certain height before you glue on the caps. More fill needed for high wind sites. My post didn't come with instructions, just parts diagrams, so I read the manuals on the Home Depot site for this post and the picket fence kit. I recommend reading the manuals before purchasing.
