Q:Can this application be used for a temporary sun shade?
by|Jul 22, 2021
5 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Without more information, this is a difficult question to answer. This is designed to accept 4"X4" posts, so if you are thinking about that application, it will depend on the nature of your soil and the design of your sun shade. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    A:  No

      A:  Unfortunately, we can't speak to how well our products will perform outside of their intended use. We do always love to hear feedback from customers that do find creative uses for them so if you do end up trying this out, we'd love to hear how it went!

      by|Jul 22, 2021

        A:  Probably. You need to be able to screw it into the ground (Dirt). You can attach a 2x4 or 4x4 block to the top to mount the shade support shaft on or attach directly to the umbrella (or shade support mast).

          A:  It will stand up under the pressure. It has been holding a 4 x 4 fence post up for over 2 yrs now. I screws into the ground and is screwed into black clay type dirt at my area. This dirt locks onto objects which in our case would make it difficult to remove the stake when you was through with the "temporary" sun shade.

            A:  Hello, thank you for your interest in Mayne products! Our ground screws have not been tested on any other load besides our mail posts as that is their intended use.

              Answer This Question

              A:  I don't think that's going to fit. I used a standard 4x4 (i.e., 3.5x3.5) and it was a tight fit at the bottom. So, anything larger than that isn't likely to work unless you shave it off on two sides.

              by|Jun 19, 2021

              A:  Yes it fit fine.

              by|Jun 27, 2021

              A:  Yes. I used mine with a 4X4 pressure treated post. When you install the screws it is very tight.

              by|Jun 17, 2021

                A:  The dimensions of the ground screw are 3.75in L x 2.88in W x 26.75in H. The opening for the wood post is 3.5in

                by|Jun 17, 2021

                  A:  Probably not, it tends to be a snug fit on the two sides

                        A:  Yes, and could actually handle more weight. I built my fencing using heavy wood so these work nicely.

                          Perfect for my Free Little Library
                          Free Little Libraries are popular in my town. This was perfect for mine! It was sturdy and easy to use. It came with a piece of rebar to "twist" the screw innto the ground! Much easier than digging and cementing in a support! I have shared this neat option with others who were designing their own Libraries. (Libraries can be designed using many different sources! - Mine started out as a doll dish cupborad for an elderly neighbor's doll collection!)

                                Bolts are non standard!!! Everything went well until I tried to push those bolts in. Manual says it fits 7/16" socket bit but they are smaller and none of my tools (including my neighbor's tool sets) fit those bolts. It was a royal pain to push those bolts in and it took me almost an hour.

                                  sturdy, durable, easy to install.
                                  I purchased this ground screw in order to secure a new mailbox post. I'd initially had concerns that it might be difficult to get the ground screw all the way into the ground, and so I had a 4' piece of rebar on hand, just in case I needed the extra leverage. Fortunately though, the short length of rebar provided was sufficient. The last few turns of the screw may have required a bit more exertion, but frankly, I'd still been expecting much greater difficulty. However, after getting the screw all the way into the ground, I decided I didn't like where I'd positioned it, and so I proceeded to unscrew it, which turned to be a very easy thing to do. Then, after sinking the ground screw into a new location on the lawn, I decided I didn't like the new position either, so I proceed to unscrew it once more, again with ease. The third location turned out to be the right one, and I'm glad I elected to utilize a ground screw for this project and not a post-hole digger. Overall, highly recommended product. (Useful tip: when securing the lag bolts, pre-drill holes into the post, then reach for a socket wrench with a 10mm socket, not a Phillips head screwdriver.)

                                      Used this to hold up my spouses little free library. Was concerned that it would be strong enough. Turns out it is very strong - easily handles the load. Installed in very dry clay-based soil. (Live in Northern California - has not rained for a few months.) Dug a small hole and poured a small amount of water in the hole every day for a week before installing. Installation was relatively easy using the included piece or rerod.

                                        This product not only did not work as advertised, but broke under minimal stress. I strongly recommend Home Depot stop selling it as customer are much better off going the traditional route of securing the post with quick drying cement, which is what I ended up doing after 2 hours of wasted labor. Problems emerged immediately because the screw could not cut through the compacted clay so prevalent in the NC piedmont. Reluctant to take yet another trip to Home Depot to return the item, I stupidly decided to soften the dirt with a crowbar in hopes that the screw would eventually bite and drive into the dirt. Never happened. Still, I stubbornly decided to proceed in hopes that I could compress the dirt around the screw to secure the post. But, when I inserted the 4X4 into the top of the screw, one of the fastening brackets broke off because it's made of such cheap material. (See photo.) Stupidly I persisted only to find that the hex screws used to secure the bracket to the post protruded so much that I had to trim the insertion hole at bottom of the plastic mailbox to accommodate them. (See photo.) I ended up assembling the whole mailbox only to find my effort had been wasted because the post was not secure. A few days later, I disassembled the mailbox and returned the screw and post. But it turned out the post was sold with the slide-over mailbox I purchased, so Home Depot would not let me exchange the one I had cut for a new post. That set me back another $8. Overall, a big waste of time. Wish I'd just gone with gravel and Quikrete to begin with. That installation went very smoothly.
