Installing Metpost Fence Post Bases

Metpost Spikes

Metpost spikes are simply driven into the ground. This can be done with a sledge hammer and a driving tool. Simply place the driving tool in the top of the spike. Ensure that the spike is in an upright position and hit down on the driving tool with the sledge hammer. It is suggested that this is a two person job, one to hold the spike in the correct level position, the other to use the sledge hammer.

Metpost Bolt Down and Bolt Down Flush Fit

  • Bolt down metpost are installed as the name describes. The fixing however would vary according to what you are bolting down on to.
  • Fixings such as anchor fixings or projection bolts can be used to secure down on to concrete and even brickwork.
  • Fixings such as coach screws and washers can be used to secure on to timber.
  • Metpost Concrete In

  • Concrete in metpost items are, as the name suggests, concreted into place. A hole is dug, the metpost concrete in is then placed in the hole and either postfix or a mixture of ballast and cement is used to concrete in the item.
  • Metpost Repair Spur

  • Metpost repair spurs are put into place by cutting off the existing damaged/rotten post as close to the concrete that it is set into as possible. Then driving the repair spur into a corner of the square of the cut off post.
  • This can be done by using a sledge hammer and a driving tool. Simply place the driving tool in the top of the spike. Ensure that the spike is in an upright position and hit down on the driving tool with the sledge hammer. It is suggested that this is a two person job, one to hold the spike in the correct position the other to use the sledge hammer.
  • Panel Fixing Clip

  • Panel fixing clips are installed by screwing them in place on the fence posts. Six is an adequate number of fixing clips for a large fence panel (5’ or 6’ high,) or four of the fixing clips to secure a smaller panel (3’ or 4’ High). The panel is then slotted into the clips supporting it in place.
  • Post Extender

  • Post extenders are attached by simply slotting the extender over the existing post and then slotting the new post into the top of the extender. The two fence posts will need to be firmly slotted into the extender to allow the wedge grip to do its job.
  • Driving Tool

  • Simply place the driving tool in the top of the spike. Ensure that the spike is in an upright position and hit down on the driving tool with the sledge hammer. It is suggested that this is a two person job, one to hold the spike in the correct position the other to use the sledge hammer.
