6. Correct Depth

Step 6 Correct DepthIf you are using our locking system the correct depth for the stake will be the equivalent of the U-Shape at the end of the slide hammer to the ground approximately 6 inches.

Note: Stake Adjustments
For a straight and level install, drive the stake about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way into soil. Then remove the slide hammer and install your post. Now you should have an idea of what angle the stake must be driven. Load the slide hammer back into the stake and push in the direction you need the stake to go. Continue to drive the stake in.

7. Installing Lock

Step 7 Installing LockSlide the key into the lock until both tangs pull in. Slide the key and lock into the post lock hole until it dead ends. This may take some finessing to line up all the holes. Holding the lock in place, remove the key. When installed correctly, the lock will not pull out without the key.

8. Stake Removal

Step 8 Stake RemovalFor stake removal, load the slide hammer into the stake. Insert ring pin removal tool through both holes in the stake. Leaving slide hammer in lock position, try lifting slide hammer out of the stake quickly hitting the removal pin.
