Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SimonW Be aware of defective T posts shipped directly from manufacturer
In June, I ordered 56 of these T-posts (8') and 8 rolls of welded wire fence on line. After I waited for several weeks, the items were delivered to my house and unloaded in the garage. From the shipping statement, I found that they were directly shipped from Midwest Air Technologies (MAT), a T-post supplier of Home Depot. At that time, I didn't pay attention to the details of the posts and didn't install them right away.
However, last few days when I started to install them, I found that every post is twisted or warped at its one end or both ends (see the pictures attached to this review). At the beginning I thought that it might be normal for T-posts because every one of them is like that, but yesterday I decided to go to a local Home Depot store anyway to see what a T-post is supposed to look like. Surprisingly, I saw that T-posts in the store have a perfect shape (all edges are straight at both ends), nothing like what I got. So, I realized that MAT shipped to me all 56 defective T-posts (probably those defective, returned from customers). How bad it is! Also, I don't think that the T-posts were damaged by the shipping company, because they are very hard to be bent or twisted and it is impossible that every one was damaged during the shipping.
I called Home Depot Online Help Center last night. The lady was very helpful. She immediately issued a return order for these defective posts and placed a new order of 56 posts for me. Now, I am waiting for the shipping company to come to pick up the defective ones and also for another shipment of the new ones (wait for several weeks again?). The lady did say that she will try to expedite the new order, but I don't know how much she really can do. Also, I am a little worried about whether the new order of the T-posts will be good or not, since they will probably come from the same supplier again.
I am not trying to blame Home Depot for this bad shopping experience, because the product was shipped from its supplier directly. However, Home Depot does need to keep an eye on its suppliers, especially for the orders shipped directly from them, because whatever they did wrong will damage the reputation of Home Depot too.

The t-posts do what they do. They won't rot like wooden posts. You can pound the snot out of them and they just stare at you as if to say "is THAT all you've got?" and then you go back and pound them some more.

This is a very sturdy t-post. My only complaint, and I don't know if this is a function of the manufacturer or Home Depot), is that there were numerous places where the paint had chipped off. I felt compelled to repaint it before using. Other than that I highly recommend it.

Fairly heavy sturdy steel fence post. The stability plate near the bottom is just pressed onto the anti slip protrusions on the face of the post. Hammering the post into the ground knocks the paint off the top of the post. Should work to hold the deer netting at the top end and the wire mesh at the bottom for woodchuck and deer exlusion.

Excellent product, sturdy, and stronger than I expected. Zip-ties are a must for this product as there are no holes, lips, or bends to attach fence product to. I would definitely purchase this product again.
