Aluminum Post Plate Covers are for welded plated posts.
Powder Coated and Rust Free! 2 painted head screws are included with each cover purchase. The cover overlaps onto itself and the screws are there to hold the 2 pieces together; they are not for post attachment.
This optional product is available as a cover for posts that have Centered welded plates. This product cannot be used with offset, welded plated posts. For more information regarding the difference between centered and offset welded plated posts, See Aluminum Post information. You can also install these covers over posts that have been core-drilled.
You can put a long, self-tapping screw in that would go through both sides of the cover and into the post. It would need to be about 1-1/2” long on a 2” post and probably 2” long for a 2-1/2” post. We recommend stainless steel; you would need to purchase those locally. The 2-piece can even be ordered after you install your fence/gate system.
