I love these drive caps but they just don’t last. The top cracks in less than a week of daily use and then just breaks off. The are just not durable enough for daily use.

The cap is handy if soil is firm, it is simple to use; place it on the post and tap. Around my orchard the soil is usually soft enough to just push the post in a few inches, but I also carry a cap and have a small hammer nearby for the hard spots.

Driving cap is fine if you only have one post to drive but it is not strong enough for multiple posts. I drove one post into sand, about 24" deep and had to hammer the cap off of the end of the post. It will not come off of the second post. It is better than having a splintered post but order one for each post you’re driving. I only purchased one cap for 10 posts. Reordering more to complete the job.

I like the thickness and durability of the 3/8" size.

Very handy. Preference for high visibility color instead of black which could be spotted in the field. I taped mine to be able to more easily spot.
