Questions & Answers

can these be used on a post that has completely broken off?

Asked by: singlefemale
I did it on one post a few years ago. Worked great.

Is there any danger of cracking a concrete footing with these?

Asked by: Don
I have used several of these successfully. My posts were set with a concrete footing over 40 years ago. I have replaced some, used these supports on some. On the ones I replaced, I found that the concrete used for the footing was in as bad shape as the rotted out base of the post. So driving through or "cracking" what's left of the concrete is of little concern. As someone else wrote, you are effectively replacing the concrete footing.

what is the Length of mender can it be installed in old post cement

Asked by: joe
It is 28" and about half needs to be in the ground. It can be installed in old cement, I hammered right through with little trouble. The mender guides in very close to the post which helps.
