How To Measure Posts for the Correct Fit

When you order, you will be asked for the “exact post size.” Just measure across the post as shown in the picture. Don’t worry if the posts are a little different, we add 1/8″ for variances. Just enough room for an easy slip on but not so much as to give you a sloppy fit.

Post sizes vary by region as well as the company supplying them.  When you place the order, you will be asked for the “exact post size” on page 2 of the order form or by your representative if you call.  Just measure across the post as shown in the picture.  Notice it is 3.5 inches.  This is your actual post size and is just one of several available sizes of 4x4 posts.  A 4x4 could be anywhere from 3.25 inches all the way to a full 4 inches. Don’t worry if the posts are a little different, we add 1/8” for variances, just enough room to make it easy to slide on and look great.
