6 in. x 6 in. x 60 in. Post Protector (Case of 6-Pieces)

Post Protector is a slide-on barrier system protecting in-ground posts from decay by eliminating soil-to-wood or concrete-to-wood contact. Decay occurs when the following conditions exist: Moisture saturation of wood fiber, Oxygen, Temperature 40 -100 degrees Fahrenheit. These conditions enable the soil dwelling micro-organisms, to colonize the post using the wood fiber as their food source. This consumption of the wood fiber is otherwise known as decay or rot. Post Protector allows for typical post-in-ground foundations without the decay causing micro-organisms ever having access to the post. The treatment in a pressure treated post is a pesticide used in an effort to make the wood fiber an undesirable food source for these micro-organisms. The treatment is effective initially but loses its effectiveness as the chemical migrates or leaches from the post over time. Post Protector eliminates this chemical migration and keeps the treatment with the post where it belongs. Common applications are decks, pergolas, fences, pole barns, or any post-in-the-ground project. Available in 4x4, 4x6 & 6x6 in 42 in. and 60 in. lengths.

After my post ripping this product I received a call from the owner of the company. The purpose of his call was to assure me that I did not waste my hard earned money. He explained the process he went thru in the design phase as well as testing. He told me that thru accelerated testing it was established that this product should last 400 years. As I told him, I may have been hasty in my review. I think that time will tell. I have to respect a man that is willing to listen to the good as well as the preceived bad.
Pros: Light Weight

No, I do not recommend this product.
My cost for 24 of these "post protectors was $735.15. The walls of the the protector are .03". Thats 1/32 of an inch. The material is stiff but not hard.The bottem is so thin that I could see sun light thru the un drilled plastic. I don't know how these will holdup but I am not impressed. I could puncture the bottem with a dull nail without much force at all. If I had been able to see this product before I purchased I would have never laid down my hard earned money.

I ordered the longer post protectors to use on the corner post of my pole barn. The protectors worked as advertised "awesome" They were easy to install, light weight and "Made in the U.S.A." Contractors that I used were impressed and plan on offering to their customers. If you want pole protection buy this product.
Pros: High Quality of Material, Easy to Install, Light Weight, made in the usa

I recently built a pole barn and decided to give these post protectors a try. I wanted something that would help stop possible rot of the 6x6's that were in ground contact. The product came exactly as advertised. It was easy to install and was well made. I would definitely recommend using this product!!
Pros: Easy to Install, Light Weight

I recently built a pole barn and was looking to add more rot and decay protection to the pressure treated posts that were set into the ground. Compared to other options, the Post Protectors are more cost effective and simple to install. Concrete pillars are expensive due to the labor required to install them. A solid buried post is also stronger than the weak joint of a post bolted to the top of the pillar. The various "wrapped" posts on the market are more expensive than the Post Protectors. The sleeves are simple to install. Just slide them on and install the lag bolts to provide uplift protection. If you're having a contractor do the work, just have them slip them on before they set the posts. Quick, simple, and economical.
Pros: Multi Use, Easy to Install, Light Weight

The builders were very impressed with this product. It handled well -- several of the workers commented on how much they liked it. The contractor said he was going to ask his supplier to start carrying Prodex.
Pros: Easy to Install, Seals Well, Light Weight

ive used this product on the last 3 projects on my farm(2 pole buildings and a lean too) and I love these. The first shed I put up doesn't have protectors on it (it was before I found p.p.) and I'm so bummed because I can see the beginning of rot on my poles. I wouldn't put another pole in the ground without post protectors.
