Answer This Question

A:  These post caps are plastic, but still real copper plate, so they should be protected with any brand of car wax at least once a month.

    A:  The ones I bought had the plastic copper top.

    by|Aug 9, 2019

      A:  They are metal. They require polishing to maintain the bright copper color. They are quick to tarnish in the elements. I actually use car wax to protect them after polishing them with a good metal polish.

        A:  They are metal and look good. Easy to install.

              A:  Not sure. I bought store bought "4x4"s... and it fit aight.

              by|Jul 1, 2023

                A:  Scott, The post cap is made to a nominal 4in. x 4in. This will most likely not fit on your true 4in. x 4in.

                by|Jan 21, 2019

                  A:  NO. It will be too small.

                        Q:Can these be installed in the cold weather? We recently went from the 60's to the 30's and 20's.

                        Answer This Question

                        A:  I had no problem installing in late winter/early spring. My only concern was moisture. We had a heavy snow and wet spring. I was reluctant to install them over a wet post, but they are vinyl lined inside under the top, so that should be a problem. You also might have problems with glue to install (we used brads), and the fit might be snug if your posts have swollen. My posts are cedar and the caps are cedar, so I think a snug (but not tight!) fit is fine, since both should expand at the same rate.

                        by|May 4, 2023

                        A:  Yes, this post cap can be installed in cold weather!

                          My wife and I recently had our fence stained, and wanted some new fence post caps to accent the color we chose. We decided on these primarily due to the aesthetic look of the copper tops and purchased 24 of them!! Can't beat the price!! We are in the early stages of evaluation due to some of the reviews and how the metal has prematurely oxidized for some. In essence I'm simultaneously reviewing two products at the moment. The caps themselves, and a product I purchased to protect them from the elements. The manufacturer recommends using car wax to add a protective coating, but we chose a product called Everbrite Protective Coating. It's uniquely designed to protect metals like copper when used in an outdoor application and will last longer than car wax. I suggest you consider this as an excellent pairing for you new post caps. We love the caps so far, and they look fantastic on our fence!! Give them some TLC by protecting the metal and staining the pressure treated pine you should be just fine!! Great Price, Good Looking Product!! Love 'Em!! Everbrite Link: https://www.everbritecoatings.com/cart/everbrite-coating-only-c-6.html

                            Sharp Looking Caps!
                            These shiny copper caps look great on the corner posts of my deck stairs. Really make a classy statement.

                            Great Product For The Money
                            My husband I recently fenced two sides of our daughter's back yard (the previous owners had already fenced the other two sides). We are just "do-it-yourselfers", but with every project that we do, we try to use great care in doing it right and get the best possible materials at an affordable price. We needed 13 post caps. So, spending $10 - $15 per cap would have added up to quite a lot of money. We looked a number of places...in stores and online and found nothing that even came close to the quality and attractiveness of this cap for this price. This cap is the perfect finish to the fence at an affordable price. The instructions say to affix to the post with construction adhesive, so we used Liquid Nails, which worked perfectly. I also read that applying car wax initially and every 3 - 6 months will help the caps to keep their nice copper finish. So, we did that, as well. I think these should be sold in Home Depot stores (rather than online only). I would definitely recommend this product.

                            Was looking for a flat top plastic cap for the mailbox post. Can't find them in the stores. Saw this online and it's such a beautifully crafted piece for not much more than the cheapy plastic ones. Luv it!!

                              Cooper painted plastic. Looks cheap and hideous. I ended up buying a metal solar lighted cap instead. It looks much, much better.
