  • Ratchet Set
  • Spirit Level
  • Fencefast dolly
  • Sledge Hammer


Fixing your rotten or damaged fencing post:

Step 1

The first thing you need to do is take your saw and level off the top of the old Fence Post so that it is flush with the concrete.

Step 2

Next, take a Fencefast Repair Spur and position it over the corner of the old post. Using a Dolly and a Sledgehammer carefully drive the Repair Spur between the old wood of the post and the concrete.

Step 3

Finally, once the spur is in place, put your new Fence Post into the box and tighten the bolts with an Adjustable Spanner and a Ratchet Set.


When you begin tightening, to make sure it stays upright throughout the process, start of with the bottom two bolts first, as this will help make sure the post stays straight.

You can make sure that it is straight by using a Spirit Level along the way. Just place it on the side of the post and ensure that it is level.
