Mahogany 'Miterless' Slip-Over Cap

NEW! MITERLESS WOOD PYRAMID CAPS IN MAHOGANY!

Using a solid block of Mahogany, the unique "Miterless" design eliminates the need for any glue or staples to hold the cap together and solves the problem of Post Caps splitting at the corners. Available to fit 3-1/2", 4-1/2, and 5-1/2" post sizes.

SLIP OVER POST CAP ADVANTAGES

  • Adds finished craftsman's appearance
  • Covers damaged and split mill ends
  • Compensates for non-level field cutting of posts
  • Will not warp, twist, cup, check or separate at joints under normal conditions
  • Ease of installation - slips down over post.
 

REDWOOD SLIP OVER POST CAP MATERIAL

Post caps milled from clear, architectural grade Redwood - a wood known for its durability and resistance to the elements. Post caps can be stained, painted or left to weather naturally, mellowing out in 6 to 9 months to a light grey shade.

CEDAR SLIP OVER POST CAP MATERIAL

Our stylish slip over post caps are constructed from Clear Western Red Cedar, a strong and durable material, allowing our customers the same elegant simplicity at a more economic price.

SLIP OVER POST CAP INSTALLATION

Apply exterior adhesive to top of post. Place post cap over post and adjust to desired fit. Stainless steel nails may be used, but are not necessary.

WOOD POST CAP MAINTENANCE

As with all wood products, we recommend that you coat the wood portion of the post cap or finial with a high-quality exterior finish to preserve the wood’s natural beauty and ensure a lifetime of enjoyment. Apply to all wood areas, including the underside of the post cap or finial, before installation.
