Can this be used for a wooden fence?

Asked by bj March 27, 2019

Answers

Someone said these poles are preferred for wood fencing. LOL nowhere will you find the manufacturer recommending that. These are built for chain link purposes only is what they tell you. With that being said no these are not okay for wood. It takes one Windy day to lay the whole fence down. The reason why it’s okay for chain link is because the wind blows directly through the links and doesn’t act as a sail like the wood does. Common sense ain’t that common on here it seems.

What kind of idiot puts width and height dimensions on something which has a diameter?

Home Depot does - Because Home Depot doesn't hire competent and experienced engineers/constructors on their software side creating the "boxes to be filled" when a new product is offered. (Of course, these same software engineers have created the very poor search engine of the site too - and don't even get me started about the totally useless "inventory" information which is rarely correct.) Nor do they hire hire competent and experienced engineers/constructors for at least reviewing/editing what the inexpensive/inexperienced non-expert box fillers have done as a start. While for this particular example it is easy to figure out that their description is wrong, others are not so obvious, and can lead to problems for the consumers.

Dig the hole 2 1/2 ft deep. Your post shouldnt be level with the top of your picket line.

Asked by Pete June 7, 2019

Answers

I don't have any exact data on it's wind resistance. There are many variables. For instance, I've NOT placed the slats up against each other, but rather I used one slat spacing between the slats. So the wind must flow thru this section better than one huge sail of a fence. I also used deck or outdoor rated screws, instead of nails. This section of fence has outlasted the 2 other common fences that my neighbors have had built. Also, I use only the 2-3/8" CORNER posts at each post location. On the other side tho, My fence is 8ft tall vs the usual 6ft fence, so even with the spacing, the additional 2ft height makes it a bigger sail and it's still outlasted the wooden post. Hope this helps.

Yes - they can be used with a wooden fence, wish we did this when the fence was installed. We have used the brackets to adhere. Gradually replacing all of our 4x4's as they break - hardest part of the job is getting the old post and concrete out.

I used the yardguard corner post to make a teather pole for my kids. This 8' pole will work great for them since there young but will also be tall enough for adults. I drilled holes near the bottom of the pole and put rebar in an "x" pattern in the concrete for strength. I also drilled a hole near the top for the eye bolt to tie the rope to. It did take more bags of concrete then I thought for my large tire. This tire took 4.5 (80lb) bags to fill. This post is very sturdy and I can pull on the pole and roll into place.

It took a lot of work to find this pole and even more work to get it down from the top of the rack and then to carefully get it out from the middle of the stack of poles without making a complete mess and without sending me away without the pole I wanted, great job to the electrical and lumber and building dept guys that helped make things happen, my kids And I thank u very much!!
