Measurement Guide

6x6 Post Shields are designed to fit the standard 6x6 labeled post.  The standard 6x6 post is 5.5" x 5.5".  There are few exceptions so please measure your post to verify its size before purchasing.  New treated posts are usually wet and swollen from the treatment process, but they will soon dry out and shrink to the 5.5" x 5.5" standard post size.

Post Shields, shield the base of posts such as mailboxes, fences, decks etc. They are 4 individual shields that slide together to cover and protect existing or new posts from string trimmers and other lawn care equipment. They install in seconds with no tools necessary and their visually pleasing design adds a luxurious and finished look while saving time and money on unneeded maintenance.

You can now affordably protect your posts and maintain the beauty of your home with Post Shields. If your posts have already taken a beating, you can use Post Shields to cover and immediately stop further destruction

awesome product but hard to install on painted posts

Overall the product is great and it appears it will do its job and last a longtime. My posts are 5.5" but have about 3 coats of paint on them, which made the install process extremely difficult. The last piece wouldn't slide down into place, but I was able to snap it into place with a lot of effort and a mallet. Now that they are in place they look awesome, but wish they were a little bigger or have known that the paint would be a issue.

GREAT Post Shields

They worked well. Now the landscapers can no longer tear up my deck

Average - SOLVED

Not only does this company have a fantastic product, the customer service initiative is excellent. If I owned my own company, I'd be delivering the same superb quality of service. My initial rating earlier in September wasn't so great, and it was due to my rookie mistake of not understanding wood measurements. My bad. I was contacted personally, and with the help and guidance of one of the Post Shield creators, he worked with me to get the product to work for my posts. The Clam shell was the best way to go, and I cannot be happier. As I said in my first review, the product looks clean with my gray posts under my deck. A well-manicured view. Thank you, Post Shield Family, for a terrific product, and for impeccable customer service. I highly recommend this product with 6 stars, but I can only select a 5 rating.

The protectors are white and look clean on my light gray posts. I measured each of my posts under the deck and ordered accordingly. I prepared the posts (removed all pea gravel away from the base, sanded, primed, painted) and was excited about the shields. Unfortunately, only 1 of the 4 shields purchased fit properly. I had to zip-tie the other 3 to hold them into place. While it's not an ideal situation, I tried to make it work. I would not purchase again. Sorry.

Looks Great

Orderered incorrect ones and immediately got on the phone to their customer center. The individual was understanding and dealt with my return and refund questions.

Put the post shields on upon receipt and they were easy to install once I smeared candle wax on the sides to keep them from sticking and make sliding the sides onto each other easier.

They look great.


I am truly impressed to receive an email from the President of the company! I had just placed an order and realized i had made a mistake. I emailed him and he very graciously took care of everything! I am very happy with your company and personal appreciation you show! Thank you!
