Fence Post Spikes

(4 Products)

Fence post spikes are a convenient and efficient tool used in the installation of fence posts, offering an alternative to traditional digging and concrete methods. Designed to streamline the process of setting up fences, these metal spikes are driven into the ground to provide a stable base for wooden or metal posts. Typically made from durable, corrosion-resistant materials such as galvanised steel, fence post spikes are equipped with a sharp, pointed end for easy penetration into the soil and a square or round socket at the top to hold the fence post securely.

How Fence Post Spikes Work

At its core, the fence post spike is designed to convert the vertical force applied during installation (hammering) into lateral stability and support once in place. The spike consists of a long, metal shaft with a pointed end for easy insertion into the ground and a bracket at the top to hold the fence post.

To install, simply use a sledgehammer to drive the spike into the ground, and then insert the fence post into the spike's bracket. Secure the post with the provided fasteners, and your fence post is ready to support your fence.

Although not a universal feature, some fence post spikes feature strategically placed fins that, once driven into the ground, grip the surrounding soil to secure the post firmly.
