Placing H-post holders and U-post holders does not have to be complicated. However, it is important that this is done correctly. There is indeed a difference in the mounting of H-anchors and U-anchors.
Before placing H-post holders, you must first dig a hole in the ground. We recommend anchoring this post holder with quick cement. This ensures that your post can no longer move! After approximately 30 minutes, rapid setting cement has hardened and you can place your posts. For lighter constructions such as car canopies, you could also use our post-fixer to fill the post hole with the H-anchor inside.
We recommend placing a pavement tile on the bottom after digging the hole. This will ensure that the foundation does not subside. When placing the H post holder, make sure that your post floats slightly above the ground as shown in the photo on the right. This allows rainwater to slide completely off the post and you reduce the risk of rotting wooden posts. After anchoring the post holder, place the post. Use tap bolts or carriage bolts for this. For each post holder, it is indicated which size you need for firm anchoring. For h post holders 91 mm you need, for example, construction lag screws, carriage bolts, or tap bolts of 8 x 120 mm.
Placing U-post holders
You do not need rapid cement to install u-post holders. You mount these with screws and plugs that you simply order. Each U-post holder has 4 mounting holes. These holes have a diameter of approximately 11 mm. Use our 10.0 mm thick construction lag screws to anchor the U-post holder. If you need to screw into stone or concrete, combine the lag screws with a nylon plug 14 x 70 mm. You do not need plugs for mounting on wood.
You can screw your post to the U-anchor with so-called post holder screws 10.0 mm thick. Depending on the post thickness, you choose the length. For 7 x 7cm and 9 x 9cm posts, use our 10 x 40 mm post holder screw. At 12 x 12 cm we recommend using 10 x 50 mm. Remember to always pre-drill with an 8 mm thick hardwood drill.
