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 & atmospheric decay fungi & insect infestation. It’s first important to understand decay. Many believe that moisture CAUSES decay. Moisture is not the cause of decay but is one of (3) conditions needed for decay to occur. The conditions: (1) Moisture, (2) Oxygen & (3) Suitable temperature. These conditions enable the soil-dwelling or atmospheric decay fungi, as well as termites & 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
  • Perfect for both Pro & DIY
  • Speed, affordability, strength of a direct burial post while, wood destroying organism have no post access
  • HDPE lightweight, flexible and strong; 449 years of in-ground service life
  • Integral uplift protection feature with Uplift protection hardware/installation instruction pack
  • Integral drainage feature
  • Minimizes chemical leaching into the environment
  • Attractive appearance-rich clay tone color with wood grain texture
  • Easily trims to desired height above grade
  • Stronger, faster, and less expensive than concrete pier and bracket method

  • Fits the typical 4 in. x 6 in. post with the actual dimensions of 3-½ in. x 5-½ in.
  • Can also be used to create a removable in-ground post
  • Toll free tech-line for expert product information/installation assistance
  • Item is a quantity of 8 post protectors

Customer Reviews

4 in. x 6 in. x 42 in. In-Ground Post Decay Protection (Case of 8-Pieces) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from they don't fit.. should be labeled 3.5x5.5x42 Building a fence that I want to last. Saw the Post Protector and thought what a great idea. Purchased a box of 8 and had them shipped to my local Home Depot. Arrived quickly and was excited to put these to use. Big problem... My posts are exactly 4x6x8! The protector is also labeled the same. How ever they should have labeled them 3.5x5.5. In the instructions that came with the box says that some times it is necessary to trim the posts so that the protector will fit. What a joke! Make a product the size it is labeled to be. I trimmed all 4 corners of the post, (which I didn't want to do) and tried again to no avail. I am not about to cut all the expensive lumber to get these things to fit. They say 4x6 they should be 4x6. Most disappointing. My project couldn't be delayed so in the ground the posts went without the liners, and promptly returned them to the store, which I did get a full refund with no questions asked. Although one liner is now split all the way down, with another split partially down. I still think its a great idea, just the product itself was not the size it said it was.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from May impair structural integrity of posts I used the post protectors on 22 4x6 treated posts while building my pole barn. While I think that the product will do a fine job of keeping moisture away from the posts, the protectors are very loose on the post despite the supplied lag screws. In the end, it seemed to me that the protectors prevented the posts from solidly cementing in the ground and I am a little concerned with uplift. Moreover, after having seen them in person, they are way too expensive for the marginal benefit that they offer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good addition If you looking to protect your wood supports look further than here. They fit well and customer support is fantastic. If I have any future projects that contact the ground I will definitely use this product!
