Product Overview

Honeywell electronic digital deadbolts unlock with a programmable 4 to 8 digit user code (keyless entry) and feature traditional key access as well. Fifty (50) different user codes can be programmed and deleted as desired for service personnel, office staff or guests. A backlit keypad illuminates the push buttons for easy viewing late at night or in a dark hallway. The Honeywell electronic deadbolt allows you to set an automatic lock function that will return the deadbolt to the locked position at a programmed amount of time after the lock is opened. The vacation mode puts the system into a low power consumption state and disables all buttons and functions until the programmer chooses to reactivate the lock. With the Honeywell electronic digital deadbolt you never have to fumble with keys for a door again.

I used one of these to support a 4x4 post with 2 hanging plants and 2 feeders on a 6 1/2 ft post - it's super solid. I'd say you should be fine with the taller post - as long as the weight is somewhat balanced and you soil is firm. I did have a bit harder time getting this into the ground than expected, but that was mostly due to rocks, so some spade work was required.

It is a one piece device. Recommend you use top quality 2" star drive or Torx drive deck screws, not lag bolts. Do not use galvanized sheetrock screws. Not enough strength or durability.

I only used it for a mailbox post, & because of numerous (understatement) big roots i also surrounded the exposed part of the anchor with concrete to further stabilize it. I'd defer the proper answer for such a structure to the manufacturer & their specs/recommendations for durability & safety's sake. Sorry i couldnt help more.

Can i put this anchor in cement

I dont know if you are supposed to, but i surrounded the exposed part with concrete - i couldnt hammer it completely in the ground without it twisting & being out of vertical because of all the tree roots.

Is there a metal plate that is between the wooden post and the ground so that the post doesn’t sit on the ground and rot

Yes. You only drive the tip into the ground.

How well would these work to run a 16 foot chain across a driveway, post to post, about 4 feet high?

If you have a 4x4 x 4' long wood post added to it.. it should be ok.. it will hold the post up right and hold the chain. I used 3" long screws (qty4 to hold post to Steel anchor

I chose this because it is one continuous piece of steel, not one that requires tightening a bolt. It is far more attractive, practical, and stronger that way. The post anchor drove easily into Florida sand, I can't testify to any other soil. It comes with holes for decking screws to secure the post, but I drilled them slightly larger and used galvanized lag bolts and washers. There is also a drain hole to prevent premature post rot. All in all very well designed and of great build quality. A great value for the money. Make sure to check with your utilities before hammering this into the ground.

These work better than expected, they drive into hard ground and stay put. I am only partial done with my build but these have made the install so much easier than having to dig post holes. These would be excellent for installing a mail box, mine are for a trash can storage fenced area. I cut a 1 foot section of 4x4 as a sledge hammer insert driver (works great). Be sure to check for plumb and alignment 5-6 times as you drive them in making small adjustment as needed.

The OZ-Post anchors are exactly what we needed. We ordered the level, plus the driver, but ended up not needing the driver because the posts went into the ground so easily (we live in wet climate with softer soil). They were even delivered to our home! Good quality product, easy to use and they look fantastic.

SOOOO much easier than digging a hole and setting a post in concrete - the last post set in concrete lasted about 7 years before rotting out - this one keeps the bottom of the 4x4 3"+/- above grade and if it should fail again, releasing and reinserting a half dozen stainless screws is all the effort it will take to install a new one. I suppose you could set the metal base in concrete if desired - but mine driven into clay/gravelly soil is very stable.
