FAQ - Fitting with Backrails (4)
The video below shows how to do the job using Postmix concrete. This is available from your local Builders Merchant.
In the video, a Post Hole Digger is being used. A hole dug by this piece of equipment creates a hole that is about 250mm wide without disturbing the soil around so needs less concrete & when set is much smaller & more secure than a spade-dug hole.
When ordering your poles allow for a minimum of 500mm in the ground (Order your poles here)
Fitting to extra-large poles requires extra-large clips. The solution is to use very large jubilee clips that can be tightened to fit the pole. The jubilee clip goes through slots on a fixing that slides into the back rails and then around the lamp-post. Tighten the jubilee clip with a screwdriver. 2 Rail Sliders & 2 jubilee clips are needed per sign. Order at the checkout.
When you order your sign with the back rails option we rivet aluminium back rails to the rear of your sign with one rail at the top & one rail at the bottom. A clip is inserted into the rail & twisted to lock in position. The clip then goes around the pole & the other end of the clip is fixed with a slide-in bolt to the back rail.
If you are replacing an existing sign then you may already have the clips & pole so when you receive your sign with back rails in position you will be ready to fix
If you need new clips CHOOSE HERE. For 1 pole you need 2 clips. For a sign attached to 2 poles, you need 4 clips.
