Set Your Posts In Just 15 MinutesUnlike traditional backfill methods such as concrete or packed dirt, Postloc® requires no water or molding. After you dig your hole and level your post, just mix one part of the two-part Postloc® formula into the larger jug and shake the combined solution for 20 to 30 seconds. Following that, pour Postloc® into your hole and watch as the foam expands up to 15 times its original volume. Cut away any excess foam with a utility knife or shovel and let it sit. In 15 minutes, your pole will be stable and secure for years to come.
Before starting your job, be sure to wear proper safety equipment when using Postloc® post setting foam. We recommend safety glasses and goggles, as well as a pair of chemical-resistant gloves. One pair of gloves is included in every Postloc® kit.
The hole for your post should be dug approximately 3 feet deep and should be about 4"-6" wider than the diameter or width of your post. For example, a post that is 4" wide should have a hole dug about 8"-10" wide. Remove any standing water from your hole before using Postloc®.
— Dig A Hole
Place the post in the center of the hole, level it, and secure it in its desired position. The post can be secured with temporary supports (such as wood struts) or held in place by another person.
— Level Your Pole/Post
Remove the caps of the two bottles and pour the contents of Bottle "A" into Container "B". Once poured, replace the cap on container "B" and shake it vigorously for 20 to 30 seconds. Always point the cap of the bottle away from your body/face while shaking.
— Mix Postloc® Components
Quickly remove the cap of Container "B" and pour its contents into your hole. Chemicals can begin to expand and fill the hole 20-30 seconds from the time of mixing.
— Pour Postloc® Into The Hole
Postloc® should set for about 15 minutes at 70° Farenheit. Warmer temperatures may cause Postloc® foam to set faster, while colder temperatures cause it to set slower. After that time, remove the supports on your post and continue additional installation.
— Let Postloc® Set
Postloc® can be used to stabilize any sort of household pole or post, including:
- Fence posts
- Basketball goals or tennis/volleyball nets
- Satellite dish mounts
- Garden lights
- Sign posts
