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
Carolina clay installation notes. Used a 10 lb sledge hammer. Took about 8 guys to do 46 or so in a day (used 1 stump per 2 spikes). Cut small 4x4 stump pieces, about 7 inches long, and shaved about half an inch off two adjoining sides. This helped get the stump out after sledging was completed. The section of the spike is shaped like a cross, and got driven into the bottom of the stump once fully installed. Shaving off a bit helped wiggle the stump out after installation. Saved us a lot of time. Side note, I tried a lot of "stump" types, and while it felt like wasting wood, it is the best way we found to install. Best solution would to find raw stock metal for reuse in place of a wood stump, but I couldn't source it in my window.

Can I use multiple of these spikes for building a deck instead of concrete footing?

Actually the deck is not elevated from the ground. So the structure wouldn’t have lateral forces
Asked by: Matt
Not only would this violate building codes .. .the reason the codes exist is for safety. If you violate this and the deck fails and there is an injury, your insurance may not cover this (actually it SHOULD NOT COVER THIS) and you could be criminally liable. Medical cost, court costs, yada yada da. Also: (in most any area) you need a building permit before you build a deck (which would not allow this). Once the deck is complete then the deck is signed off (essentially a certificate of occupancy). If you lack that, you can not sell the property.

Will this post holder hold up as a single post to be used as a bird feeder (cast iron hangers on two or all four sides) given the wear and tear squirrels will deliver jumping on the feeders?
