Measure Your Piling
Before you order your piling caps, it is important to know which size to get. Most piling in the Southeast region of the United States will have between 8 inch and 10 inch pilings. Most places in the Northeast region will have larger 12 to 14 inch pilings. The size of the piling depends on the need for durability in different weather conditions.
To find the size of your piling, simply measure the diameter of to insure you order the right piling caps. Be sure to round up to the nearest inch if your piling is in between inches. For example, if your piling measures 8.5 inches, then round up to 9 inches. This will ensure that the cap will fit properly on your piling.
Get The Right Tools
To install piling caps you will definitely need a screw gun or screwdriver. The hardware kit is included with the DokLite®
