How do I stab the posts?

After you have marked all your posts to the proper height and laid the post out so as to avoid the concrete truck, follow the steps below:

  1.  Mark all your post with a black permanent marker or crayon.  Make sure that the mark is very visible. 
  2. Check to make sure that the string line is in proper alignment and free from any obstacles. 
  3. Grab the post.  Holding the level against the side of the post, gently stab the post in the center of the footing approximately a 1/4” off the string.  Make sure you are on the correct side of the string.  Do not ever set the post against the string.  The post may actually be pushing the string line out of alignment.
  4. Keeping the post level, gently twist down into the footing so that the mark is at the same elevation as the grade.  Do not try to prematurely eye the post-in. 
  5. Check to make sure that the post is approximately 1/4” off the string, level in both directions before moving-on to the next post.
