A: The caps are purchased separately from the fence posts.
A: The cap was part of a larger order. The cap was received packaged well and in good order and weeks later after the receipt of the actual fencing material fit perfectly.
A: It just sits on top of the post. You can glue with vinyl glue if you like but ours never blows off.
A: There are options. They fit fairly tightly by pushing them onto the post. A little adhesive caulk would hold them on better. If you want a permanent attachment and never plan on removing them, some PVC cement would do the trick.
A: I fasten two sides with 1/4 " aluminum self tapping screws purchased at Home Depot. I fasten the two sides running with the fence so that if you are standing in front or behind the post you don't see the screw heads.
A: It just snaps on tightly, no screws needed. We've had them for over a yr and half and no problems with their staying on.
A: Pat - This cap is made to fit right over a 5 in. x 5 in. post. If you are concerned that it may come off we recommend a dab of silicone in a corner or two. Silicone is better than glue in case you ever have to take the cap off for some reason you can use a rubber mallet and tap the corners so that the silicone will break and you can replace the cap.
A: This will go on top.
A: Over the top.
A: It fits over the top.
