Thank you for your question. The base for the post is 3 1/2" square, with the holes 2 1/2" apart, or 2.65" center to center.

Will this work with trex railing kit?

Asked by John April 26, 2021
2
Answers

Thank you for your question. Yes, the post sleeve surface mount will likely work with any railing system as long as the top rail does not attach higher than 36".

Can these be used with the 8 foot x 3 foot veranda rail

Asked by Brian April 22, 2021
2
Answers

Thank you for your question. Yes, the post sleeve surface mount would work with the Veranda railings, but please be aware that it will not work with the Veranda vinyl post jacket. The post jacket has a different inner dimension and will not fit over this post.

What is the size of the base??

Asked by Wazoony April 22, 2021

Answers

Thank you for your question. The base of the post sleeve surface mount is 3 1/2" square.

Has anyone used these on vinyl fence posts? salesman at Home Depot recommend them for a 6' fence being mounted on concrete.

Asked by vinylquestion April 8, 2021
2
Answers

Thank you for your question. These surface mounts would not be suitable for a vinyl fence. They are only approved for use with deck railings up to a 36" height.

Will this post work with a Fiberon Havenview Countryside Railing System?

Asked by Buford March 16, 2021
2
Answers

Thank you for your question. The post sleeve surface mount will work with a 36" height Havenview Countryside railing system, but will not with a 42" height.

Can this be used with trex enhanced railing?

Asked by Ndan March 7, 2021
2
Answers

Thank you for your question. We have not tested the post sleeve surface mount with Trex products so we do not have data to provide for it. Please contact Trex to confirm if it is compatible and approved for use with their railings to ensure compliance and warranty coverage.

dose it come in 8ft length.

Asked by Eric February 7, 2021
2
Answers

Thank you for your question. No, this post is only designed for use with a sleeve for a 36" rail height, we do not offer a taller option.

Is this structurally strong enough to mount a gate to it into the white inserts?

Asked by Bhouse December 15, 2020
2
Answers

Thank you for your question. As long as the gate is still a composite material and is 4 foot in width or less, yes, it can be installed to the post.

Can this be used with RDI railings and post sleeve?

Asked by Kyle December 3, 2020
2
Answers

Thank you for your question. The post mounts have not been tested using the RDI sleeves and railings so we cannot advise if they will work. If the post sleeve inside dimensions are a minimum of 3 5/8" , then the sleeve will likely fit. The stabilizers are adjustable so they should be able to be placed to secure most 36" tall rails.

Fiberon vs Veranda
I typically use Veranda posts, but Home Depot only had Fiberon, so Monday, May 24th, I’ll give it a try again. I have used the Fiberon posts, anchors, and jackets once, for mounting in to concrete and found them to be a time consumer, the Veranda posts have a matching 4” square plate for mounting under decks that I use as a template. Fiberon doesn’t. The holes are too small to use 3/8” wedge anchors, so I’m forced to either cut the cheap 6” anchors provided to 3”, (so they don’t snap, and they do) or drilling each hole to 3/8” to use tap cons or wedge anchors. The railings and post jackets are much superior to Veranda. But the posts are just a pain to work with. I’ve been doing vinyl railings part time for a year and a half, and ready to go full time. But not with Fiberon and their posts, unless they can match the ease of install to that of Veranda. I’m a union tradesman with 30 years, union trained installing aluminum curtain wall on high rise buildings in NYC.

Worked as said it would. I hung trex railing and very sturdy. Make sure there is a wide enough base to attach screws or bolts. Would definitely recommend.

Sturdy product
It's a very sturdy product when installed properly. Following the instructions, I found that all the lag bolts were too short. I had to toss them out and buy longer bolts.
