  1. Dig a 12" diameter hole 24" deep.
  2. Place post sleeve into hole and plumb & level.
  3. Mix a minimum of 120 lbs. of concrete and pour around outside of Post Sleeve.
  4. Pour enough wet concrete down inside the Post Sleeve as to make approximately a 2" thick support base or floor. (The purpose of this support base or floor is to help support the vinyl post that will slide down inside of Post Sleeve and will not allow the vinyl post to sink into the ground)
  5. Allow concrete to setup for 24 hours.
  6. Determine the finished height of the vinyl post that will slide into Post Sleeve.
  7. If the post needs to be shortened, measure and mark the vinyl post. Using a common wood saw, cut the post to proper length. Trim off the bottom part of the post so the top remains clean and level.
  8. The post is now ready to insert into the Post Sleeve.
