An optional configuration whereby the post is not centered on the flange / base plate. Instead, the post is welded on one side of the post. Typically used with End Posts or Gate posts for fence runs or gates are installed flush next to an existing structure (house, column, building). Remember, any time you add the “welded plate” option to your post, our factory will weld a plate the sticks out beyond the 4-sided post. The offset welded plate option (unlike the standard centered version) will only stick out on 3 sides of the post (not 4). This will enable you or the installer to push the post up (flush) next to a structure (house, building, wall or column).
