A Guide To Fence Post Spikes

Easy to use, economical drive-in post spikes make installing fences simple. Use them where you don’t want to dig holes or use concrete. Our high-quality spikes will keep your fence secure, great-looking and functional for a long time.

Why use fence post spikes?

This useful product cuts the risk of wooden buried posts rotting – even quality treated fence posts decay to some degree over time when sitting into earth. Since fence post spikes are topped with a box that secures the base of the fence post just above the ground, you instantly cut the odds of having rot problems.

Good spikes hold wooden fence post bases securely with strong bolt-in systems, providing sturdy wind-resistant fencing that won’t sag or lean. The bolts can be removed easily if you need to remove a fence post for repair or replacement, or to alter the fence line. 

Another plus to using fence post spikes? Concreted-in fence posts can occasionally twist out of line when weather causes the ground to shift. This won’t happen with drive in post spikes.

Which type to choose? 

Drive-in post spikes are made of heavy gauge steel, so they’re designed to last for years. They prevent rust and degradation from moisture – and you can paint it to match any fencing wood colour or staining. You can also match colours with adjoining building exteriors, masonry and gates.

Choose from those that come ready-fitted with bolts you can tighten manually. The effective clamp system ensures posts are securely held in place.

How to install

The process of installing the drive-in posts spikes is relatively straightforward: 

1. Mark your fence line and measure for fence post installation, then simply use a post driving tool or offcut of wood to drive the spike into the ground with a sledgehammer. Ensure the safest and most precise result by enlisting another person to help. 

2. Check the vertical alignment of the spike frequently with a spirit level to ensure that the spike stays aligned with your fence line. If it’s out of line, twist and bang in again. 

3. Once the box is about one centimetre above the ground, you can tap your fence post in before fixing it to the rest of the fence panel. Done!
