      Q:How long are these post protectors? My posts will be set at least 3' deep?
      by|Sep 28, 2021
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello, Postsaver sleeves are 14" inch long and are designed to be placed on wood posts with 2" inches of the sleeve above ground and the other 12" inches below ground. This is to protect the wood from ground-line rot and decay that commonly destroys wood posts within the first 14" inches of ground. Below the sleeve, your posts should be fine. You can use Postsaver sleeves on your posts set 3' ft deep, just place the postsaver sleeve at the correct position on your post to allow the top 2" inches (marked on the sleeve) to sit above ground. If it helps at all, here is a quick link to a YouTube video that shows how to install the sleeves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTOs0aSGWk8 I hope that answers your question.

        Q:I am felling my own hardwood trees for use as fence posts. Do they have to be perfectly round for the heat-and-shrink to wrap/adhere effectively?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Good question, and the answer is they do not have to be perfectly round. Use the next size to be sure or use SKU 1 also known as Postsaver Wrap & Tack. Cheers
