Deckorators ALX 2.5" Aluminum Post Kit with Leveling Plate anchors directly to the structure of the deck making installation simple. The kit includes a slim 2.5" post mounted to a 5" aluminum leveling post base, a post skirt, and post cap. The post base has four 11/32" diameter mounting holes (hardware sold separately).

The type of hardware, or length of fastener, depends upon the material of the deck or patio. Recommended fasteners for deck purposes are (4) 5/16" x 4" or longer stainless steel lag screws. When installing aluminum post on top of a wood surface, screws must be lagged into at least 3” of solid wood (5/4” or 1 ½” deck boards do not provide sufficient material for a safe installation). If necessary, add additional material to the underside of the surface

The post is available in 39" and 44" lengths for horizontal applications and 49" and 54" for stair applications. All lengths come in 3 colors: Matte Black, Textured White and Weathered Brown.
