Testimonials

We like to use Uplift Plates because they are an easy, fast way to provide additional uplift protection on posts. Rather than cutting wood blocks or drilling holes and cutting rebar, we take the plate and with a hammer attach it at the bottom of the post. The Uplift Plates allow us more clearance to easily maneuver the post in the hole.
