Hi, what are the required tools to install this product and how I can install it vertically 100%

Asked by: Dool91
You will need a sledge hammer or heavy hammer as well as a 8ft 2x4 for installation. A shorter piece of 2x4 will help to get it started. To keep it plumb use a piece of 1/2" rebar about 2 -3 ft long and drive that plumb where you want to install the Pylex screw. The screw is hollow and will fit over the rebar and follow it.

Pylex 4-in x 4-in x 50-in Black Steel Adjustable Anchor Screw - Support up to 5000-lb is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Up to 3500 lbs in clay! Purchased 6 pylex ground screws and 6 extensions. Installed under my 12x18’ deck to a depth of 5.5 feet. I had my doubts that these can support 3500lbs each in clay earth. There is likely less than 1000lbs on each ground screw and i find i have to continuously adjust them as they are sinking. I now have to lay down concrete slabs and additional posts to support my deck. When they say “up to 3500lbs” they mean 0 to 3500lbs max. Waste of time and money in my case.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from great idea, Bought 6, broke 2, returning them all Bought 6 adjustable anchor screws. Hammered in the 48" rebar first. Using a 48" 4x4 got to about 36" in depth and got stuck on what I assume is a rock and broke the square collar. backed it out hammered it down some and tried again, broke another collar. Tried a different location and that one just spins to no end at about 20" in depth. Taking these all back and getting the Titan version

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't handle obstacles At the first sign of resistance the square steel cap peeled apart at the weld, leaving the post lodged 18 inches in the ground. Nowhere near strong enough for going deeper.
Date published: 2023-05-19
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pylex 50 Just installed 6 of these Pylex 50 as I am building a 14x16 deck. They went in fairly straight and easy. I do find that the top cap is fairly wobbly even though the base is firm. Is it supposed to be like this with the adjustable screw or even when the screw is off. I am worried that my deck will sway. I would recommend the product for ease of installation, but I am not sure about how well it will do for a deck application.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Anchor screw 50 inch I had to borrow a impact drill with 1200 lbs of York to screw these into the ground a regular car impact won't do. Hand screwing with a 4x4 won't do. I choose this cause I didn't want to do the sono tube and didn't want to do concrete thing. If you hit a stone forget it .if I had to do it over again I would do the sono tube and concrete.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from dug in well installed easily but it needs a adjustable post connection it only fits a 4x4
Date published: 2020-11-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked out better than expected Happy I went with these foundation spikes over digging for concrete ones. Straight forward to install, after watching the online video. Make sure you use a rebar to help guide the spike into the ground as you screw it in. Rebar helps it to get through tough clay soil conditions here in Brampton. Did have to re-position two of the screw piles after screwing them in as they bottomed out on something or hit a rock. Not too big of a deal as you just un-scew it from the ground and try again nearby. With extra rebar. Overall happy I went with them, I think it was way easier than having someone dig the proper depth holes and then concrete and all that. Now to see how they make out with the deck on them. You have to order these on Lowes.ca and have them shipped to your house, as they are not available any where nearby. Installation does take a bit of a learning curve but after the first one the rest go pretty easy as long as they don't hit anything. Watch out for old concrete piers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation I am putting an extension on my rear deck and only need to add one more post due to how it is layed out. Anyways I ordered one of the adjustable Pylex foundation screws and it was super easy to install. It is much easier than excavating and getting sonotube, concrete etc. It went into position in about 5 minutes tops. I am using a 6x6 post so I bought the 4x4 version (as you need this for installation) and then also bought a short 6x6 adjustable version for $15.00. Once installation was done I put the 6x6 top on and I good to go. Check YouTube for installation video if you want to see how quick they install.
