Installation Installing the post caps couldn’t be easier Post caps add a nice detail to your fence or deck. More importantly, they cover the end grain at the top of the posts, which would otherwise absorb water and could lead to cracking and rotting.

Simply apply an outdoor sealant to the bottom of the cap and slide it over the top of the post. Do not install solar or low voltage post caps with adhesive. In most cases, the post cap must be removed to replace the batteries if necessary. These caps should be fixed with removable screws.
