Q:What adhesive should I use to install the Gothic White caps on the 4x4 posts or the inserts into each individual fence slat? I have some that have fallen off/out.

A:  Just use a dab of clear pvc cement ( pencil eraser size) to hold it on so if replacement is needed in the future it can be taken off with minimal effort

    A:  I would recommend that you use one screw to secure it to the post / pvc sleeve. We put one screw on ours and they stay on great. That way, it is easy to remove / replace the Cap.

      A:  No! It’s very ridged. You could probably place the topper inside your post and screw it in place.

        A:  It hasn't been my experience with this product that it has any stretch

          A:  for 4x4 but prob would stay

          by|Sep 17, 2020

            A:  My 4” posts measure about 3 7/8” or 3 15/16” (hard to tell because of rounded corners). The opening in the cap is 4”. That means you would have a 3/16” gap all the way around. You could probably get it to stay on the post by applying generous amounts of PVC glue all around the top of the post, or by using some shim material, but then it becomes a question of how good it would look. If this is to replace a broken, out of the way cap, I might do it. If it’s for new caps for the entire fence, I would get the right size, even if it costs a little more.

            A:  It’s really made to go over the 4x4 vinyl post which is in turn made to go over a 3 5/8 wood post. You could probably screw it directly to a wood post but it wouldn’t fit snuggly.

            A:  No, it will simply fit over post but if you want to keep it more secure there is an epoxy glue to permanently afix it to post.

            by|Mar 31, 2020

              A:  I didn't buy clips and I haven't had any problems.

              by|Mar 30, 2020

                A:  I did not buy clips. The caps are fairly snug, but I live in a high wind area. I put a bit of glue on the inside edge before I slipped it over the post. Hasn't budged!

                by|Apr 1, 2020

                A:  I don’t know of clips for this to the post. But you can screw the plastic to the plastic post to secure it...

                  A:  I removed old cap ,cleaned the surface,put clue on the inside of new cap(check for clue you use on vinyl)then I placed the new cap in place,it's been a year now and they are fine.Hope this helped.You need no clips Good Luck!

                  by|Mar 30, 2020

                    A:  Not necessarily. Actually, I didn't even know they made clips. It comes with a small tube of glue, but I also use two screws on opposite sides of the post. Drill a pilot hole through the cap and post (smaller than the screw size), then use a small stainless steel screw long enough to go through both (#8 x 1" works). I make outdoor signs and have used this method for many years with no issues.

                          A:  I have three in use outside for two years minimum now, with another twelve plus posts to use hopefully prior to next Winter 2021. The post caps fit perfectly to date and appear not to weather at all; and I live in the woods. I would have preferred a "Ball Cap" Design, but evidently Veranda does not manufacture such a design. Other than not the best design for my taste, I am happy. I will continue to use this design cap across my property.

                                A:  This post top ts about 6 1/2 inches high when installed over a fence post. .If you look at the photo from Hume Depot you will note an indentation about 1 inch from the square base where it transitions to the pyramid shape. When the post cap is installed the indentation stops the post cap and the result is about 6 1/2 inches high.
