FENCE ARMOR - Protection For Your Fence Posts

Properly Measuring Fence Posts

In the fence community there are nominal and dimensional measurements. To avoid confusion, we ask that you measure your fence post first, then enter these dimensions into the Fence Armor Store to determine the correct product to suit your fence post size. Measure twice, order often, and please tell your friends!


Before You Order

Important information to verify before you order:

Measure Your Posts

Does a 4"x4" or 6"x6" fence post really measure 4"x4" or 6"x6"? In most parts of North America, the answer is a resounding NO!

Posts labeled 4"x4" 6"x6" are actually 3.5"x3.5" and 5.5"x5.5", respectively. The same is true for all lumber sizes!

Simply put, measure your fence posts: the measurement indicated on the tape is the size of Fence Armor needed to order.

If your posts are rectangular, they will normally measure 6"x4", and you should buy 6"x6" Fence Armor, or they will measure 5.5"x3.5", and you should buy 5.5"x5.5" Fence Armor.


All in all, always remember to take the measurements of the posts in question before ordering, whether it be for vinyl, wood, round, or metal fences. This is the best way to save time and money when it comes to dealing with extra shipping costs for returned goods.

Installation Instructions

Fence Armor Metal Post application installation instructions:

For 2 x 2 metal posts Fence Armor is designed to simply snap lock around the existing posts. Take each half unit and snap the corresponding notches to fasten to the post. No Drilling is required.

Fence Armor Round application installation instructions:

The Fence Armor Round application is designed to follow the arc on a rounded post. Standard round posts have a diameter of 3.5 to 5 inches. If your post is larger, two or more segments of Fence Armor Round may be required to cover the post. Sink the fastener of your choice into the center hole, then wrap until the two ends meet and fasten securely to the post.

For tree protection it is important NOT to affix the product directly to the tree, there must be approximately a quarter to half an inch of room for the tree to breathe. By fastening the center holes together with a bolt the necessary length and height can be achieved to reach the desired diameter.

For more unique shapes Fence Armor Round is malleable and can be formed to fit most shapes.

Off The Box Instructions

Slide Fence Armor over the bottom of your existing post, at the middle of the centre line of your grass trimmer’s path. Place a second unit on the opposite side of the post, overlapping each unit until slot and side holes meet. We recommend fastening Fence Armor using a 1" to 1 1/2" inch long Stainless Steel screw or nailrated for outdoor use. If side holes are not accessible, use the front hole to fasten with the same type of fastener. For best results stain or waterproof untreated posts before installing Fence Armor. If required, you may stack Fence Armor to increase desired protection area due to ground or fence level.
