Only the posts for the gates need them for support. Make sure to install the hinges and latches with screws that go into the aluminum inserts.

Did you ever find out if this fits in the weatherables ones???

Is it typical to have aluminum posts in each post other than the gates?

Asked by MAR June 18, 2020

Answer

It depends on a few things. Do you live in an area that experiences a lot of wind? How stable/sturdy would you like your fence to be? I live in an area that sees 50 mph wind multiple times a year. Knowing that each post was hollow was not enough stability for what I wanted either. I chose to put an insert in every post but the corners. I am glad I did too.it has made my fence a lot more stable and durable. I am positive it will help it last longer too.

How do you insert the aluminum post if your gate will be installed over existing concrete and we need to buy the post base installation kit? The aluminum insert will not be able to get dug into the ground. I feel that my only work around would be treated wood post?

Are the inserts considered break away safe for signs near roadways?

These are really strong. I would be confident enough to use them if I were building a retaining wall.

The product is awesome. It is longer than the Vinyl post so it is secured into the ground deeper. They are sturdy and will not deteriorate like a wooden post. Make sure you order them early. They take longer to get than the other items so give yourself the extra time to receive them in. When installed you don't even know they are there. They work awesome.

We bought these because we live in a hurricane zone. I'm so glad that we did! Our neighbors put up a brand-new wooden fence at the same time that we installed ours with these inserts. Less than a year later, a tornado ripped through our neighborhood. The neighbors fence was destroyed, but ours was still sitting pretty. Definitely worth it!

The difference it made was simply amazing. I wish I had installed it in my other post. A perfect fit for my ProSeries Dover fence post. Definitely plan ahead when it comes to adding cement into the bottom fence slot or top opening.
