    What preservative is used to protect pressure-treated wood post caps?

    Our wood post caps are protected by Copper Azole Type B (CA-B), an EPA-registered pesticide containing copper and azole compounds to protect it from termite attack and decay. For more information, refer to the Copper Azole Safe Handling Information.

    Does a finish need to be applied to wood post caps?

    Yes. As with all wood products, we recommend that you coat the wood post caps with a high-quality exterior finish to preserve the wood's natural beauty and ensure a lifetime of enjoyment. Before installing, apply to all wood areas, including the underside of the cap.

    How do I activate the solar post cap?
    1. Remove top by pressing inward on the side of the clear lens, grasping the edge of the top and lifting it off.
    2. Install the batteries.
    3. Replace the top by snapping it back onto side panels (ensure that the holes in the sides are matched up with the stubs on the top).
    4. Place your solar post cap light in direct sunlight for 24-48 hours to fully charge.
    Do pressure-treated Wood Cost Caps need to be “seasoned”?

    No need, they're kiln-dried, but we do recommend applying a protective finish immediately to the post cap.
