Installing a post into the ground can be done many different ways, and one of them involves using a post driver. These post drivers are heavy objects designed to slam the post into the ground. This tool is best for small posts, like the ones used to install political signs or chicken wire fence posts, because they're easier to drive into the ground. Using a post driver takes a bit of technique and some heavy lifting, but you can do it yourself with some practice.

Position the post where you want it. Locate the opening in the post driver, which will be on the opposite side of the cap on the tubing. Pick up the post driver by the handles and place it over the top of the post.
Lift up the post driver slightly by the handles, then pull it down in a sharp, quick motion to set the tip of the post into the ground. Adjust the post by pushing or pulling if you need to straighten it.
Lift the post driver again by the handles and then pull it down as fast and hard as possible onto the top of the post. Repeat until the post is as deep as you want it, then remove the post driver from the post.
