About This Product

This flat, pre-drilled post cap is an ideal base for installing decorative wood finials on posts. The caps are an economical way to improve your fence, deck or porch. At the same time, they'll protect wood posts from weather, so they'll last longer. The MCA-treated post caps have a natural look and are less corrosive to fasteners. Package contains six post caps.

Q:How do I attach these? Glue...nails...screws? The post top is flat and wood...

Answer This Question

A:  It's a base, not necessarily the finished top. I put caulk on the posts to waterproof them, then screwed down the base with a top ornament with a screw in it. You could glue it, but I would definitely screw it in also if that is the top you want. But you should put some sort of filler or plug on top of the screw hole and seal that. Otherwise water will collect endlessly and bad things will happen. With that hole in it it is not meant to be the finished top plate.

    A:  GLUE and Screw on the cap.

      A:  TennesseeTim, These will sit on the top of the post by placing the threaded screw located on the bottom of the finial post top into the predrilled hole of the base. Screw until tightly fastened and flush with the treated deck post.

        A:  You can use small finishing nails or just sandwich it between the ripper and the post

            Q:Does this come for a 6 x 6 post?

            A:  The ones I bought are for a 4X4 post, and barely cover that.

            by|May 19, 2022

            A:  Linda, It does not seem that there is a flat finial base for a 6 x 6 post available at this time in stock. We suggest that you contact your preferred Home Depot store to inquire about a special order.

              A:  With considerable sanding.

              A:  Yes, but I used mine outdoors to top 4x4 treated fenceposts, and they were slightly undersized. Also, the holes were off-center, which wasn’t a big deal because the finials covered the new holes that I drilled.

              Very Poor Quality
              All pieces of the product are poor quality. The pieces are in need of extensive sanding and the holes are totally off center and have to be filled and redrilled. Waste of money honestly.

                Not exactly what I expected…but will work fine
                Quality not what i would’ve expected, but good enough for me to finish my project. Price went down, day i received my order…and they adjusted the price accordingly. So I was happy about that, at least. Thxs

                  Be prepared, you will need to sand these extensively, and most will need wood filler to even out the divots and gaps left in the routed edges. They’re pretty messy, as though the tools used in shaping them were blunt or a novice cut them. Don’t expect to get what’s in the product image. Also don’t expect to get all 6 - I only received 5.

                        Holes drilled off center - no extra charge...
                        ProWood 4 in. x 4 in. Flat Finial Base (6-Pack). Bought this 6 pack and every base's hole was drilled off center. Now I have to re-drill the holes correctly - not happy... Shame on you ProWood for allowing this to happen...!!! Shame on you Home Depot for reselling this substandard product. FIND a better vendor...!!!

                          The dimensions are not 4x4, they're more like 3.5x3.5 and are reflected in the product description as such. the pre-drilled hole was slightly off center. We needed to check these as our HOA is looking for replacement parts. while this product is a fine product, it was not what we were looking for.

                          Hi Thomas, thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and we’re very sorry the item you received was not what you were expecting. You are correct, these boards are advertised as a nominal dimension of 4 in. x 4 in.. but do have an actual dimension of 3.5 in. x 3.5 in. as described in the Product Details and Specifications section. It is industry standards to advertise a wood product with its nominal dimensions. While we’re always working to make our product information more accessible, helpful, and clear, we couldn’t do that without honest customer feedback, so we appreciate hearing from you! If there’s anything else that we can help you with, please e-mail our customer service department at CustomerService@ProWoodLumber.com, and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you.
