Post Spike

Ideal for fixing posts into the ground without the need to dig and concrete. Simply hammer in with a sledge hammer and then sit the post in and fix with screws.

Post spikes are available in different lengths so you should always be able to get a solid fix into the ground.

You can buy a special tool that sits in the post holder while you hammer it home to prevent damage but if you only have a few to do just use a cut off from one of the posts.

Post spikes (known as Met posts in the UK) are available for 3x3 and 4x4 posts. They are ideal for building pergolas and supporting trellises etc. Not suitable for supporting an out building with a solid roof, decking or anything that will carry substantial weight.

Available from all good hardware and DIY stores as well as online.
