A drop down or fold down driveway security post uses a padlock to secure it in place and give security when upright. They can be padlocked in the down position when not in us to stop theft of the post. There are variations with different makes and models of drop down security posts. Some can be hinged and are not removable.
These kinds of security post must be manually dropped down on the driveway when access is needed in and out the driveway with a vehicle.
There will be a trip hazard when laid down. They should always be fitted to your own private driveway and never fitted to a public highway, pavement or road.
The drop, hinged or fold down security post are fixed to the ground by bolts screwed into the paving surface or by fixing a base with concrete within the driveway for the post to fit into.
Fold down, hinged or drop down driveway posts are usually the cheapest security posts for driveways you can have fitted. They give good security against being rammed with another vehicle. There is also a good selection to choose from. Although they are not as strong as a pull up telescopic post.
