I bought 12 of these post caps for the posts on two new porches that I finished recently. They are a really nice looking cap and seem pretty sturdy for the most part. The chevron filligree is a thin "foil" material that is soldered on the ends. Other tha the solder there does not seem to be any other adhesive. On some of thevcaps the fillagree was not sitting flush against the glass. I glued it down with a small dot of super glue. Not really sure how the fillagree will hold up over time. Some were very tight and hard to install. I took a disc sander to the sides of the post tops and the slid right on. The weather here is cooler than I would have liked for glueing the caps on but i was able to find a construction adhesive that worked down to 20 degrees. By the next day they were not coming off. Overall they are very nice looking post caps and they match the craftsman style lantern lighting that I used on the house nicely.
