Disclaimer: These Post Caps are made for the exact size as advertised. Wood posts tend to vary slightly due to a variety of conditions including temperature changes and cutting imperfections. For installation in extremely cold temperatures, we highly recommend using glue to secure the post cap to the post. As temperatures rise, the post cap will stay firmly in place while the wood swells back to normal size. If the post cap does not fit properly, remeasure the post to ensure that it was cut accurately, even 1/32 of inch can cause an issue. Consult your local lumber supplier regarding which glue will provide the best results your post cap installation.
