Product Overview

At OZCO not only do we create products to enhance the beauty of a project, we design innovative solutions to challenging problems. If you already have a privacy fence, and would like it to be a little taller, the Oz-Post Extender is the answer. Up until now you would have had to take extra time to dig up and replace the existing post or attach a cheap, unprofessional looking extension sleeve requiring exposed fasteners. Not the case with the Oz-Post Extender. The Oz-Post Extender will allow you to add up to 3 additional feet maintaining full strength and integrity, or it can be cut to a shorter length. It fits a 2-3/8 in. round post and works with all standard thickness tubes and can be installed in a couple minutes. First make sure your post is cut square, then carefully line up the expanding assembly and insert it into the post. As you tighten the nut with your 3/4 in. wrench, it will expand and create a tight fit. Do not over tighten. Once it is installed simply twist the extender on the exposed bolt until it is snug. Now you can easily slide on your WAP-OZ fence brackets and you're ready to go.

Could this be used on a chain link fence? Is there a hole on top where I could put a cap?

Asked by ChainLinkFence February 12, 2018

Answers

Yes, it can be used for both wood or chain link fences, and a standard 2 3/8" fence cap fits this device.

What do y’all u use to cut the extension? I have a 4 ft fence, and I would like a 6 ft fence

Asked by Ang January 28, 2018

I used a ridgid 1/8"-2" pipe cutter that I borrowed from a friend (it's no longer available on Home Depot's website but this one should also do the job https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-2-in-to-4-in-Model-4-S-Heavy-Duty-Pipe-Cutter-32840/202826750). It's best to clamp it in a vise when cutting since it will put a lot of strain on your hands to hold the post in place while turning this heavy tool around it.

could i just used this as a 3 ft tall post on its own?

Asked by grasscutterjoe December 1, 2017

Answers

First off, it's a little expensive per post to use on its own, it's made to add onto an existing post so that you don't need to replace the entire post. Secondly, the extending hardware needs to have something to clamp inside of, so once you're already preparing some sort of below surface support for it, you've already accumulated such a big bill that it's really not worth it. However, in theory, it is possible to use it on its own if you have a thick cement slab and you drill about 2-1/4" wide holes deep enough into it but for that price you might as well buy screw on brackets and use regular fencing pipe.

Will the extender support the weight of the 15 lb Convex Acrylic Safety Mirror and attachments?

Yes. It is plenty strong for that.

Does this only fit a 2 3/8 inch diameter or can it be used on a smaller diameter for a line post?

Asked by Greg October 3, 2018

Answers

Only 2 3/8 inch diameter. Much of the hardware is internal to your existing post, so it needs to be the same size. Oz-post might make these for smaller diameter?

Will it work on dock post 2 3/8 outside 2 inside ?

Asked by ToschRd July 2, 2018

Answers

Yes, that's the same size as my 2 3/8" fence posts. It will support up to a 1 7/8" ID, but should be 2 3/8" OD to match the existing post outer diameter.

Asked by pat December 3, 2017

Answers

2 3/8" is the OD, just over 2" internal diameter. The hardware requires a 1 7/8" opening, anything smaller won't fit.

Will this work on 1 7/8" pipes?

Asked by Sean July 12, 2018

Answers

No, not the 2 3/8 inch version. Check with Oz-Post to see if they make smaller diameter kits. Dave

Is there a weight capacity that this can support?

Asked by Jo April 21, 2018

Answers

Good question, I don't think the company intended it for sun sails or to support for other devices, I used it to extend my existing fence from 6' to 8' and it works great.

will this hold a sunsail?

Asked by puntdaddy February 26, 2020

Answers

Maybe, but that would be quite a bit of stress, I'd probably install a new post. Dave

Easy to attach; made a straight and strong extension with a barely noticeable joint. I only needed 20", not the full 3', so I bought a metal-cutting blade for my sliding compound miter saw that made shortening 5 extension posts a snap. (IMPORTANT: the top of the posts receiving the extensions must be flat and perpendicular for a good connection — I used a 2 3/8" metal-post-to-wood bracket as a guide and an angle grinder to trim a couple that had been raggedly cut with a hack saw).

The Oz-PostAdjustable 3 ft. Galvanized Steel Post Extender is a great idea and generally works fairly well, but IMHO, it is slightly under engineered. The biggest improvement would be the addition of a tacked washer to the top washer to prevent the horizontal slip which happens when tightening bolt. Since installation was so easy to do, I am going to try to glue the carriage bolt to its washer with construction cement. My base post are plumb and factory cut. Since these posts are shipped, I suggest to use reinforced shipping tape rather than regular shipping tape on the parts and on the shipping carton. Five of eight pieces were missing from my 3rd post. All shipping tape was broken.

I just installed these onto my existing terminal posts and you really can't tell they didn't come that tall in the first place.They were easy to install and only took a few minutes. Now, I can use the existing posts for what I wanted to now, a taller fence.

This product looks like a return item as there was a patched up hole in the upper part of the post and the post was spray painted with silver paint. I used it as I needed to complete the project and will build a box to cover the posts, so it will not be in plain view.
