Site Preparation
Site preparation for the posts should include insuring that the layout is
square. Begin by creating a rectangle with the sides parallel to each
other.
Square can be determined by measuring from one corner of the layout
to the other. These measurements should be the same.
A = A in diagram. If they are not, adjust the layout until they are.

Place the posts in line with each other.
Posts should rest on concrete that is 4" thick or more. Surface needs to
be flat and the layout square. Concrete should be at least 4000 psi.
For posts mounted on wood, adequate support underneath the post is
required.
Use a chalk line to position the brackets before marking the location of
the posts prior to pre-drilling the holes.
Post w/Welded Plate Installation
With your installation layout determined and post positions
marked, place posts and mark screw locations (one in each
corner of post).
Remove the post and using a 1/4" masonry bit (for concrete)
or a 1/4" wood bit (for wood) drill a hole that is deeper than the
length of the bolt.

Position the posts on top of the leveling plates and in line with
your predrilled holes then, using the Starhead Torx drive bit
(provided), partly tighten the 3 1/2" concrete screws (or 4" wood
screws depending on the job) until snug.
Thread the four leveling set screws into the post base and,
using a level, adjust the leveling set screws with a 3/16" allen
wrench until the post is plumb.
Fully tighten the wood or concrete screws.
