Concrete spurs are a great way to repair broken wooden poles and provide a permanent solution once concreted and bolted to the remaining pole. They are not for cowboys, however, as they require careful installation and can take up some space. In some situations, they are the best answer if you have a feather edge fence with posts that are rotten, as they are the cheapest option and, if done correctly, the fence should last a lifetime. Concrete repair spurs are used to repair broken or rotten fence posts or can also be used to screw poles or timber framing work onto the ground.
Simply dig a hole next to the pole for the spur, screw the spur to the pole and secure it by filling the hole with cement. Moisture and rust resistant, the post will strengthen the fence for a long time. A repair spur is an alternative to complete replacement and can even be used on new fences if wooden poles are used. Half of the concrete spur is dug into the ground and concreted in, while the other half sits on the ground, allowing broken poles or wood to be screwed to the solid spur.
We can also supply square bolts or screws for these spurs. Hammer screwdrivers, pneumatic drivers and standard puncher can be used to drive the concrete fence post.
