Rated 5 out of 5 by from After 2 years, still impressed I think most of the bad reviews are from folks who didn't know how to properly install them. Which should be a bad review for their instructions... You don't screw these into the ground using the nut!! You remove the nut, then put the top bracket back on and slide it down until the square base of the bracket lines up with the square top part of the pole. THEN you use a 2x4 or 4x4 to screw them into the ground. Nothing will break or fail if you do it this way. Once you're done, remove the bracket (might need a little knock of a hammer) place the nut back onto the threaded part and you're ready to go! I have clay and my deck hasn't moved a cm since install.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Use Cement and a Power Auger Instead!!!!! Terrible especially if you are using pressure treated lumber. I installed a fence last year and had several post twist over the winter. Cement would have help them straight. They are almost impossible to put in straight and level if you hit any rock or hard clay. The soil becomes disturb and loses strength. Lining up the posts is also difficult. I still had to cement some of the posts in. Furthermore they don't support weight. I had to replace the posts and use cement to hang fence gates. There is still a lot of play due to the brackets. Save time, money, effort and build a better fence using cement. I thought these would be great after friends have had similar products used for deck posts. Wish I could still return the ones I had to pull out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfectly! I felt compelled to try and boost the score of this product after it saved me at least a day's work (compared to pouring concrete). I installed 4 of these in my back yard this weekend and now have a deck sitting on top of them. The key to these is you need to know what kind of material is under ground. If you have sand and clay like me, they go in ridiculously easy. If you live on rocky terrain these will not work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I used them for footings for concrete steps and it saved me time, digging and money! I used a 3/4 inch ratchet with a 1 inch adapter and they went in no problem in hard clay. If you read the instructions it says to remove set screw, throw away, remove nut, slide the saddle back over post and use 4x4 to install. Put nut back on and adjust your height. I'm ordering more to do a deck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy duty, great product I used this for foundation footings for a cedar pergola on my existing patio. Only had to remove 4, 8"x8" sections of interlock an screw them in using a 2x6 12' long. These things are solid, way better and cleaner than sonotubes and mixing concrete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I used these for a fence I bought 28 of them and while they are not easy to put in (you need to dig approx.2ft and get larger rocks out the way) it sure beats digging a hole, using sono tubes, mixing the concrete, pouring concrete, and then waiting a day for it to set. Your posts never touch the ground so there can be no rot. You can level them with the bolts after the post goes in so if the Pylex doesn't go into the ground level its no big deal. They look very nice as well, color is black which it doesn't show from the pic. The way they bite in I am confident they are stronger than concrete which can heave with frost (I can say say that because my old post with concrete popped out of the ground like butter with my farm jack, I tried to use the farm jack on one of these and it just started bending the jack. I would use them again 100%.... expensive but if you factor in your time mixing concrete I would say it is a time/money saver. I have never written a review previously but felt I needed to with this product as even the people at home depot couldn't tell me if they were good for what I needed to do, they are not good they are excellent!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware of rocks If your ground is sand you'll be fine. If you have rocks beware of this product. I was able to drive rebar into the ground for the screw to follow but when placing the screw into the ground i found a rock about 36-42" down that that auger head had trouble with (eventually passed). Trouble was the mounting head of the screw is cheap steel and split four ways. Tried a second one, same thing but this one only split into 3 pieces. Used one of the extension pieces and a monkey wrench to get it finally into place. Gets 2 stars as was able to use product eventually, had 4, only can use two of them now though due to broken heads on two of them.

Can I screw 2 of these down and then embed them in concrete for a stair landing pad? So, use them as the anchors below the frost line for the concrete stair landing pad? Otherwise, how could I keep concrete landing pad from heaving? Only sonotubes?

Asked by: Bob2727
I did that for the landing pad of a 5-step staircase to my pool deck. I put one at each end about 1-foot in from the end of a 5-foot wide pad. It's been two years and it has not moved at all.

Is it able for city inspection in AB, Canada? Meet the building code

Asked by: G man
No, these will not meet any code anywhere in Canada.  Each individual legitimate screw pile (NOT Pylex) will have an engineered stamp with the specific address they are used at. Do not buy these products.

As the extension  piece and the adjustable shoe just slip together, can these be bolted to prevent uplift? I am planning to use them to hold up a small shed roof extension to an existing building.

Asked by: Dave
In hindsight, I would have used the non-adjustable screw piles. My cousin came over and he had a surveyor's level. A quarter turn wouldn't have changed the levelling substantially. He was also able to provide me with ground anchors, cables and cable clamps that we used to anchor my ground level deck to the ground to avoid uplift.

In order to get my permit approved, this product is required to have a “Canadian Construction Material Centre (CCMC)” or “Building Material Evaluation Commission (BMEC)” report to ensure that the product is being installed as per specs. Do you have this?

Could this product be used for a 5 to 6 ft fence?

Asked by: Joe B
I have only used this for a deck and shed foundation. Pylex does have a specific screw pile for fences. Here is a link:  https://www.homedepot.ca/product/pylex-l-anchor-screw-for-fence-black/1001312349?rrec=true
