This round black steel post for a 5-foot fence offers an alternative to our posts with sleeves. Like the latter, it comes with a cap, has a 16-gauge steel wall, is heavily galvanized, and has a black powder-coat finish. The post itself is 82 inches long–plenty long enough to support a 5-foot fence.

Installation: Place a small piece of tape 22 inches from the bottom of the post and install it to that depth with a manual post driver.

If the soil is rocky or hard, prepare the way with a digging bar, similarly marked with tape 22 inches up from the end.  Push the bar down a few inches or tap it in with a heavy hammer. Next, stir the soil (leaving the point in the ground) as though you were stirring a large pot of soup. Then tap the bar down a few more inches and repeat the process. When the tape reaches the ground at 22 inches down, remove the bar, insert your fence post, and install the post with a manual post driver, using a carpenter’s level to ensure that the post goes in straight. Insert the post’s durable vinyl cap to complete the installation.

An end is a place where the fence butts up against a building, wall, or another fence.
