This is a good post base for 4x4s and 4x6s. You need to insert these when the concrete is wet. The other model with bolt should be used if not top load.

It worked perfectly. This is very easy to use and is one of many that I have used in the past to secure the bottom end of a 10 foot light post in the ground without having to permanently cement the post in the ground.

My old mailbox post was overdue for replacement. The 4x4 was reduced by rot below ground to about half it's original width and was full of termites to boot. So I set this post base in concrete and secured a new pressure treated 4x4 post to it after letting the concrete set for about 18 hours. I was a little disappointed at how flexible the resulting assembly was, much more than planting the post directly in the ground. So it remains to be seen how well it holds up in the years to come.
