2. Insert the post or lifting tool into the sleeve and slide it downwards to the bottom of the base. Secure with set screw provided or 3/8" bolt for square tube post.  
Installation

Install. cont.


3. Place the base in the pre-dug hole *leveling the top concrete with ground level. Note: the placement of the base is critical to obtain maximum strength of the base. The concrete of the base should never protrude above ground level. Bases are available in a variety of sizes to meet specifications.

4. To level the post and concrete base, scoop some dirt on the one side of the base while leaning the post in the opposite direction until dirt falls under the base. Repeat this procedure for the other side if necessary. .

5. Once the post is level, refill and pack remaining dirt.In a couple of weeks, rain will compact the ground surrounding thebase making it very stable.
