Questions & Answers

How do you get it into the ground? Rubber malet? Do I put the wood post on first, then put it in?

Asked by: Jennifer
Depending on the soil you are driving into, you will likely need a 6 inch section of 4x4 and a 12 pound sledge to drive this in all the way. A rubber mallet will not be enough!

Can this spike work well in soft soil ground such as sandy beach?

I plan to put it in ground much deeply by remove the surface layer of loose sand. The fence is just as a property line on beach, so fence height is only 1-2 foot, no panel just one beam between two posts. .
Asked by: Gary
