Product Overview

For 18-years, Post Protector has provided simple, slide-on barrier protection for in-ground posts. Remove the ground contact and extend post life. Post Protectors are a chemical free solution to improved post life, designed to eliminate ground contact where micro-organisms in the soil feed on wood fiber. The 4430 doesn't require hardware or fasteners and therefore doesn't offer the same uplift protection like our other models but is perfect for fences and other shallow embedment applications where post holes are dug at around 2 ft. The 4430 can be used for embedments greater than 2 ft. as well. The 4430 separates the first 2 ft. of the post from the soil which is the most critical part of the post. The soil below 18 in. does not contain enough oxygen for wood-eating microbes to thrive and cause rot and decay. The 4430 takes advantage of this fact as a price-leader in the Post Protector product line.

Used to create removable posts
I used this to create a sleeve inside a poured concrete pad, so I could remove 4x4 fence posts that I don't use all year. I put the posts the sleeve, poured 24" deep concrete around it, then let it dry. Now I can remove the posts at end of gardening season by sliding them out. Works great for this purpose.

It doesn't seal the bottom, only the sides. Time will tell if it actually works.

    it's hard to tell if it's working because it will take a while for the post to show signs of rot. but, i like that it was relatively inexpensive.

      Way Over-priced
      It’s like buying an over-priced piece of drain pipe that you would bury next to a foundation. Clearly such a piece would not cost nearly $25! I have it now and will use it but if I could have seen this product in the HD store I would have passed on paying $25 for this 2 ft. piece of plastic.

          Great idea and I think they will work ok and keep the post from rotting but I think they could be better, stronger and have a base on them. Water and dampness could seep upward from the open bottom and rot the post.

          This is a simple piece of plastic that sleeves over the post. You can buy an entire vinyl post of the same price and get 3 pieces out of it. This is very much a novelty item. I gave two stars because it is as advertised.
