Let’s take a closer look at each point.
How do Post Guards work?
Like all great innovations, Fence Armor® Posts Guards are a very easy to use product. Each one comes in a set of two overlapping pieces. You slide one section over one side of the fence post and then slide the other piece over the opposite side. The supplied screws fix the post guard to the post.
Fence Armor® Post Guards are made of North American galvanized steel and will protect your fence posts in any weather conditions. They will not rot, rust, crack or buckle under pressure. When cutting the grass, the trimmer cord will hit cold steel, not the exposed wood of the fence post.
Making Fence Armor® Post Guards stack-able is easy
Once you attach one Fence Armor® Post Guard, it is simple to attach another. Slide the first Post Guard into place and secure it to the fence post. Taking your second one, place it exactly above the first Post Guard and repeat the installation instructions. Do not leave a gap between two guards.
A great plus with the Fence Armor® Post Guards is that they come in different height sizes. You can stack a tall one over a smaller one if necessary or vice versa. The extra height you get on the posts can help with animals kicking a post, careless maintenance crew, or when you have a split vinyl post.
Increasing the life of a damaged vinyl fence post
Vinyl fence posts are very durable and can withstand a lot of pressure. Modern vinyl fences are designed for all weather conditions, and colors do not fade under a hot sun. What can happen, though, if you do not protect the post from day one, is they will split if kicked or hit with a trimmer.
The answer is simple. A standard length of 2 by 4 wood, cut to the size of the post, will slide easily into the hollow vinyl post. The wood will give the split or cracked post strength and stability. With the wood inside, you will have a structure to fit the Post Guards to and add years to the post’s life.

Maintenance is the key to looking after a fence post
By adding Fence Armor® Post Guards and our other excellent products, you give your fence posts a great start in life. It does not stop there, though, and any experienced fence owner will tell you the importance of maintenance. Maintenance is key to the long life of a fence and starts on day one.
Installing fence post protection products should happen as soon as the fence goes into the soil. It is always a good idea to stain and seal a wood fence and maybe do so every couple of years. Fence inspections are essential and should be done every few months. Repair any damage immediately.
