Product Overview

  • Prevents Post Decay and Extends Post Life by 2.5 times
  • In-ground post without decay-causing soil or concrete contact
  • Environmentally Friendly, minimizes chemical leaching
For 18-years, Post Protector has provided simple, slide-on barrier protection for in-ground posts. It works in conjunction with the chemical preservative as an important additional layer of protection against soil-dwelling and atmospheric decay fungi and insect infestation. Its first important to understand decay. Many believe that moisture CAUSES decay. Moisture is not the cause of decay but is 1 of 3 conditions needed for decay to occur. The conditions: 1 Moisture, 2 Oxygen and 3 Suitable temperature. These conditions enable the soil-dwelling or atmospheric decay fungi, as well as termites and other subterranean insects, to feed on the wood fiber. So the Decay/Degradation of ground-contact wood is not CAUSED by moisture but by the action of wood destroying organisms feeding on the wood. The chemical preservatives protection strategy is to poison the wood fiber, rendering it an unsuitable food source for the wood destroying organisms. The downside to that approach is that all chemical preservatives eventually lose resistance to decay and insect infestation. Post Protector becomes the perfect complement to the pressure treated (or cedar) post by simply providing a physical barrier isolating the post so the wood-destroying organisms have NO access to the post.
  • Simple slide-on installation

  • Speed, affordability, strength of a direct burial post while, wood destroying organism have no post access

4 in. x 6 in. x 3.5 ft. In-Ground Fence Post Decay Protection is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER I use post protectors for all my in ground projects that require a post or posts. From fences, to retaining walls, even for stop signs.Working on bike paths for the Tahoe City parks dept. in Ca. I constantly rebuild our old fences and walls, and being able to replace them using post protectors is ideal, due to not ever having to dig another hole after initial installation. Once installed a post needing replacement need only to be extracted and a new one slips right back in. WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ok product Idea is great. Quality is poor. Grossly over priced for what you get. Look for similar product in store so you can see what you're getting before you buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST WHAT I NEEDED FOR MY PERGOLA PROJECT I was getting ready to build a 32x12 Pergola and did not want to surface mount my posts, wanted to bury all 6 posts in the ground to gain lateral stability. At the same time, I had concerns over potential rot from burying wood in the ground, even though in my case they would be in concrete. I was just going to wrap them with something (but what?) until I stumbled across this product online. It looked exactly like what I needed but the problem was I was ready to start the project in 2 days and the HomeDepot delivery was estimated to be more like 7-10 days. I had pretty much given up on the idea but decided to call Post Protector directly and left a message asking if there was any way to expedite an order. Much to my surprise, the next morning I received a call from Ken at PP who worked with me to get the Home Depot order routed directly to him, and they got me the 6 protectors the next day! Ken was great about answering questions and also showed an interest in my project and helped me with some ideas. Of course its too early to say if they worked for me, but the concept makes great sense and the product was well made, easy to use, and reasonably priced considering I want this structure to outlast me. Overall I am very happy I made the purchase, it has given me the piece of mind I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool thing to do if you dont want to anchor wood to cement. I wanted to build a pergola, but did not want to anchor the posts to cement. I wanted to burry them and make them sturdier. But everyone knows that burrying the posts on cement will eventually root the lumber. This product is described as a protection against that. They fit tight and work well, only time will tell how they will perform.

Item is plastic which protects from moisture damage but it arrived warped and took some muscle to straighten to use. It is grossly over priced for what you get. Look for this item in store to see what you get before you buy online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product easy to use very effective the simple yet very effective way to protect your pole plus the pole is buried for the strongest connection which should outlast anything else . much faster and stronger then bolting onto concrete plus concrete breakdown with road salt .Im in the northeast and salt is very damaging
