    Hi guys I have 5 leaning or broken(at base) fence posts,there is nothing wrong with the panels(6ft) just the posts.ive had several quotes around £600 to £800 to get them fixed,I only need to get the posts straightened up and 2 which have broken at ground level...I'm thinking of putting support in myself which would have to be easyish (as I am slightly disabled) would the item I have added a picture of do the job I want ? I would concrete them into the ground rather than just hammer them in...any advice/help would be greatly appreciated...cheers guys

    A concrete godfather may be better if you are ok concreting in.
    You can then try and keep the bottom of the post out of the ground. They don't look great though

    Even placing 10 new posts shouldn't cost that much I would have thought if you can reuse the panels..

    Thanks but I cannot physically manage the Godfather posts( which I did look at ...that's why I wanted something that was easier for me to manage...and those steel attachments looked ideal as long as they would be strong enough.

    A repair kit is a temp measure get some bad winds you will be back to square one. Look for some more quotes and get the posts replaced would be my advice.
