New & Exclusive | In-Ground Anchors Provide Secure Footing for Fence Posts and Structures

  • Sturdy anchors for fences, hoophouses and other homemade structures
  • Easy to set up; leave in-ground year-round
  • Set of 2 sockets plus install bar
  • Additional sockets are available

Universal Sockets offer super-strong, in-ground anchors for fence posts, greenhouse hoops, garden structures and trellises. To install, simply insert the install bar, included, into the top of the socket and turn it to screw the socket into the ground. True to their name, Universal Sockets are extremely versatile and will accept round, square or triangle posts or poles from 7/8” diameter to 1-1/4” diameter. We suggest metal conduit, PVC or other garden stakes that are readily available at hardware stores and home centers. Each socket has a drainage hole, as well as a removable plastic cap to prevent debris build-up if you take down your fence or structure but leave the sockets in place over the winter. Set includes two Universal Sockets and one Install Bar.

  • Heavy-gauge galvanized steel
  • 1-1/2" W x 13" H
  • Accepts posts and poles from 7/8" to 1-1/4" in diameter
  • Set of 2 plus install bar
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

Handy to Have Around

Pros

  • Easy
  • Quick

Cons

  • Maybe a little short

Best Uses

  • Orchard Berry Trellis

I had high hopes for these anchors. The are quick and easy to install and 6' green t-bar fence posts fit perfectly. I use them as trellis wire supports for blackberries and raspberries. I'm intending to use at 4' intervals to support 3 cordon wires for espalier fruit trees. Once the espalier branch has been trained to grow horizontally, they are really stronger than vertical branches so the espalier wires are more for 3-5 in training branches. I also plan to use these as supports for single cordon grape vines that I've now just planted. As for difficulty in getting into the ground - I pour water down the center. There's a hole in the end of each that i've bought so as water drains the surrounding soil softens which makes screwing them soundly into the earth possible. Time will tell how stable the are. I would have like a longer anchor.

Universal Sockets

Pros

  • Hold Posts Well

Cons

  • Do Not Screw Into Ground

Best Uses

    I tried using these post holders in several locations in the back yard. They would screw into the soil about a third of the way in and then just spin as I kept trying to get them into the dirt. I had to dig holes in the ground and bury them to set posts.
