Post Setting System




Traeger Brothers was founded in 1939 by brothers Joe Traeger and Anthony Traeger to manufacture a proprietary ground anchoring system. A half-century later, Traeger Brothers Inc. continues the family tradition with  “Anchor-Itâ”, a revolutionary post setting material that is catching  the attention of the home improvement industry.



Anchor-Itâ is a fast-setting formulation of wood products and proprietary additives designed as an economical, environmentally safe, safe handling, and easier alternative to setting posts with concrete mix. When Anchor-Itâ is placed in a post hole and water is added to the product, the material expands with an outward pressure of 100 PSI and forms a permanent, solid mass, setting the post firmly in the ground. Anchor-Itâ contains green, natural non-toxic proprietary additives that serve as a preservative, and binding agent. The cavity must be twice the diameter of the object to be set, and a minimum of 24 “ deep.   The taller the object the deeper the hole will need to be.



Anchor-Itâ is commonly used for setting mail boxes, bird feeders, wood poles, traffic signs, road sign posts, and yard ornamental



1.     Dig the hole twice the diameter of the post and a minimum of 24” deep. Taller posts need deeper holes.  For example: To set a 6 ft high 4x4 fence post, dig the hole 8” diameter and 24” deep.

Set the post in the middle of the hole and level.

      3.  Completely fill the hole with Anchor-It
â.  Spread the Anchor-Itâ material evenly around each post. Fill until level with the ground.
           One 20 lb bag shoud lset one post.

      4.  Apply water to the Anchor-It
â around the post until the water reaches the
top of the hole (approximately 3-4 gallons of water per hole). 
          The post will
set in 5 minutes.
