Galvanised Screw in Fence Post Spike Holder Support Base with Square Bracket 100mm x 865mm
About this deal
Fence post anchor spikes work well by allowing one to place and remove fence posts without having to dig large holes. A fence that uses fence post anchor spikes is just as stable as a fence with posts set in concrete, with the added benefit of minimizing the rotting of the fence posts. You can do this using a mallet, protecting the spike using a piece of offcut timber on the top of the spike.

Browse our Fence Post Anchors category today and find the perfect solution to support your fencing project. With our reliable anchors, you can build a fence that stands strong for years to come.The base of the post holder will sit on the old concrete and you can then slot the fence post into the holder and tighten the holding screws. However, with concrete, your posts can and will rot over time as water seeps into the tiny gap caused by the wooden post expanding and contracting with the changes in temperature through the year. Although this type of spiked post holder is great for fence posts in normal ground we would not recommend it for any type of fencing which puts lateral stress onto the posts.

It is also ideal for fixing signposts – again this is the size used by estate agents for their signs. Use the longer length in light sandy soils or for taller posts – higher than 4 feet (1.2M). 75x75mm Post HoldersYou can also use a chemical fixing to hold the post holder down (see how here) with threaded bar studs that are set into the mounting surface. The “shoe” should be set into a 450mm (18 inch) cube of concrete so that the base plate sits flush with the surface of the concrete. Drive the spike into the earth next to the concrete, so the upright section sits flush against the post and the horizontal section sits flush with the ground.
