I needed to replace an old post socket but I still had the original bolts still concreted insitu and which were still serviceable. So I wanted to reuse them. The pre-drilled holes did not match exactly but there was enough spare metal in the base plate to modify some of the holes. Of course, in doing so, I drilled into the galvanising but used liberal amounts of "galvanising" paint in and around the new holes.
I could not find any other similar sockets could have been so easily modified.
The adjustable clamp also allows the post to be set vertically, even if the socket is not exactly set squarely. This would be much more difficult to achieve with a simple "hammered in" friction grip.

Get the right post to fit and the rest is easy - 2 nuts to tighten and solidly fixing the post couldn't be easier!

This was just what I wanted as could not find another that wasnt brown or red! Worth the price. Only dislike the label did not remove very well.

This is a good strong galvanised product that was easy to install and a much cheaper option than the alternatives. Very simple to level and holds the post well.
