When you’re setting posts for a deck or fence, you need either an extra set of hands or some jury-rigged bracing to keep the post plumb until the concrete sets. But with Cepco’s Post-Pod, you can set up and hold posts without the extra helpers.
Using the Post-Pod is simple: set the Post-Pod over the hole, tip the post into the hole and guide it into the Post-Pod bracket, plumb the post, and clamp it in place with the set screws.
The Post-Pod bracket adjusts to secure posts up to 8-1/4″ wide. Three user-supplied 2x4s attach to the Post-Pod for legs, which means you can cut ’em to accommodate the terrain and/or the height of the post.
If you’re only setting a few posts for a deck, you might not want to pay $80 for this extra set of hands — but if you’re regularly setting posts in the ground, it might be worth the expense.
