Prevent Corrosion

Deck-Drive DWP stainless-steel fasteners are recommended for higher-exposure environments or applications

My husband and I purchased a couple of these to build a horse shelter for my horse. Our other horse is due to have a foal any day so we had to act fast and build a shelter so we could separate my horse from her. The shelter was finished in two days. We wouldn't have been able to build a nice strong shelter without these post caps. It will help keep the shelter strong and safe for many years to come. Here is a photo of my horse Mr.Lance enjoying his dinner in his new shelter. Thanks Home Depot!
