Product Details

This flat, pre-drilled post cap is an ideal base for installing decorative wood finials on posts. The caps are an economical way to improve your fence, deck or porch. At the same time, they'll protect wood posts from weather, so they'll last longer. The MCA-treated post caps have a natural look and are less corrosive to fasteners. Package contains six post caps.

Answer This Question

A:  It's a base, not necessarily the finished top. I put caulk on the posts to waterproof them, then screwed down the base with a top ornament with a screw in it. You could glue it, but I would definitely screw it in also if that is the top you want. But you should put some sort of filler or plug on top of the screw hole and seal that. Otherwise water will collect endlessly and bad things will happen. With that hole in it it is not meant to be the finished top plate.

    A:  GLUE and Screw on the cap.

      A:  TennesseeTim, These will sit on the top of the post by placing the threaded screw located on the bottom of the finial post top into the predrilled hole of the base. Screw until tightly fastened and flush with the treated deck post.

            A:  The ones I bought are for a 4X4 post, and barely cover that.

            A:  Linda, It does not seem that there is a flat finial base for a 6 x 6 post available at this time in stock. We suggest that you contact your preferred Home Depot store to inquire about a special order.

              A:  Yes, but I used mine outdoors to top 4x4 treated fenceposts, and they were slightly undersized. Also, the holes were off-center, which wasn’t a big deal because the finials covered the new holes that I drilled.

              Be prepared, you will need to sand these extensively, and most will need wood filler to even out the divots and gaps left in the routed edges. They’re pretty messy, as though the tools used in shaping them were blunt or a novice cut them. Don’t expect to get what’s in the product image. Also don’t expect to get all 6 - I only received 5.
