Fairly heavy sturdy steel fence post. The stability plate near the bottom is just pressed onto the anti slip protrusions on the face of the post. Hammering the post into the ground knocks the paint off the top of the post. Should work to hold the deer netting at the top end and the wire mesh at the bottom for woodchuck and deer exlusion.
Pros: Multi Use, High Quality of Material, Alternative for Real Wood, Easy to Install, Good Shape

Review 5 for 1-3/4 in. x 3-1/2 in. x 8 ft. Steel T-Post
Excellent product, sturdy, and stronger than I expected. Zip-ties are a must for this product as there are no holes, lips, or bends to attach fence product to. I would definitely purchase this product again.

Review 6 for 1-3/4 in. x 3-1/2 in. x 8 ft. Steel T-Post
I rate 4 stars simply because the v piece at the bottom has fallen off some of my posts as i drove them into the ground!! I had soft tilled garden soil and pounded these in from the top!! Amazed to see 3 of 10 fall apart on the first use!! If they hold together ...they are strong and thicker gauge then they used to be back in the day! So basically its hit and miss on these post! Still not too bad for the price though! But once the v piece falls off they no longer hold straight in the ground as u add fencing!!!! Kinda a buger when that happens!!
Pros: pretty sturdy
Cons: lacks a little quality, some fall apart

Review 11 for 1-3/4 in. x 3-1/2 in. x 8 ft. Steel T-Post
Although the 1-3/4 IN. X 3-1/2 IN. X 8 FT. STEEL T-POSTS I purchased from Home Depot are a good value and are what they say they are ... they're not the T-Posts of yesteryear. My old electric fence snap on insulators, that I took off the old 6' T-Posts that my dad purchased two or 3 decades ago, would not fit the new T-Posts, so I had to buy all new insulators. The steel T-Posts made today are made of lighter guage metal and the distance from the face/front of the steel T-Post to the backside of the steel T-Post is noticably shallower (skinnier) which is why the old plastic snap on insulators would not work. All in all, the new T-Posts did the job that I wanted them to. I just wish they were made heavier so I could have used the old plastic electric fence insulators, which are still in great shape (as they were shedded for many years).
Cons: lighter weight than the steel t-posts of yesterday

Review 12 for 1-3/4 in. x 3-1/2 in. x 8 ft. Steel T-Post
These things are not available at the H.D. stores but the free shipping makes up for that, just need to plan ahead a bit. For the price they can't be beat. Local building supply stores that carry 8' posts wanted anywhere from $4-$6 MORE than H.D. My only complaints are that the flange height from the bottom of the post varies, rarely the post is slightly bowed from the flange installation, and that the paint seems a bit thin.
Pros: Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With, Economical, Reliable
Cons: Inconsistent, thin paint, can be bowed

Review 16 for 1-3/4 in. x 3-1/2 in. x 8 ft. Steel T-Post
I ordered 16 of these T-posts and they were delivered as they do not carry them in the store. Each and every one of them were twisted, bowed or warped. I loaded all of them in my car and took them to the recycling center as they were all garbage and unusable for anything but an ugly fencing job. I have learned my lesson on not seeing the product before buying it from Home Depot.
