Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fence post work great to keep squirrels out of garden Used these posts to create a squirrel proof garden fence. June 11, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OK-BUT... Bought a few to continue our deer fernce for azaleas and other shrubs. In the past have used the smaller cross section posts since they are far easier to drive and less expensive. These are much more difficult, particularly in clay or rocky soil. Unfortunately, the quality has also declined from the original of a few years ago which apppeared to be higher carbon hard but ductle steel to what is probably reprocessed re rod. The biggest problem is that the punched projections used to hold the wire or netting in place break off very easily and are very brittle. I would prefer to return to the smaller section more ductle steel, but not available in stores. It appears the vendor has changed and price was the only consideration. The posts work and the price is attractive, but.... September 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Post buy Hard to find 7 foot post in steel and was pleasantly surprised to find them "o-line" at a good price (plus free shipping!) good delivery time ... very pleased with purchase. April 23, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tough Enough? Most likely would be okay in fine soil or sand, but not where ther are a fair amount of rocks. Ends smashed over easy when using hammer to pound in and fins broke off when encountering resistance. Also, bundle was bent in shipping. June 27, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by U-Channel Fence Post I ordered 4 posts and setup a pickup at my local Home Depot in Elgin, IL. When I went to pick them up, I discovered all 4 were broken. I did a refund immediately. Horrible product! October 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by In stock at my local store but you shipped it 3,000 miles instead! One of the 8 pieces delivered seems to be a factory second. It has a welded repair where the post appears to have been bent and broken off about one third of the way down from the top. The weld only covers about 85% of the break. The other 7 pieces were whole and in good condition. Should be good enough for my light duty application. April 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fence post or a sign post...either! Purchased this item to use as a sign post, and it worked perfectly for this, although I wish it was offered in an 8 or 9 foot length. It was extremely easy to drive in with the post driver. September 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Garden post This post preformed well, easy to install. When stringing up the fence this post made it easy to do so. July 1, 2014
