Metal or Aluminum Posts
Apply general grade epoxy on the bottom side of the post cap and set it on the post. This is the preferred method as it will keep water from getting inside the post.
Note: If there is a finial already welded to your post, you may need to grind it off and then touch up your post with paint before installing your new post cap.
Apply construction adhesive to the bottom of the post cap or directly on top of the post. This will dry and perinatally secure the cap to the post.
Note: If your posts are nominal sized (3.5"x3.5" or 5.5"x5.5") we recommend using our nominal sized post caps. If you just prefer the look of our true sized post caps, you will have to make an extension to the top of your post so that it will fit.
