The SNAP’n SAFE Square Post Coupler is an NCHRP 350 compliant breakaway coupler that is designed with a 360° shear point that will prevent the sign post from striking and penetrating the windshield or roof of a vehicle when impacted during a collision. It also helps save money on repairs by saving the anchor post and requiring less labor for repairs.

This breakaway coupler is available for 1-3/4" and 2" sign posts. The 1-3/4" model connects a 1-3/4" sign post to a 2" anchor post, and the 2" model connects a 2" sign post to a 2-1/4" anchor post. The 1-3/4" model weighs 2.8 lbs., and the 2" model weighs 3.1 lbs.

Both are made of cast gray iron, 80% of which is recycled material, and they can also withstand winds of up to 120 mph. All necessary hardware is included to connect the coupler to both the anchor post and sign post.

Installation

Installation instructions are included with every SNAP'n SAFE square post breakaway device and are provided here for reference purposes.

Tools required:

  1. ½″ socket and ratchet wrench

Installation instructions:

  1. Remove any burrs or imperfections from the inside of the sign post and the anchor post.
  2. Check hole location of the sign post and anchor post. The top holes on the anchor post must be ½″ on center (+/- ⅛″) from the top of the anchor post. The bottom holes of the sign post must be ½″ on center (+/- ⅛″) from the end of the sign post.
  3. Determine the location for the in-ground anchor post.
  4. Drive anchor post into the ground so only three (3) holes are visible. The anchor post must be straight and level at the completion of the installation.
  5. Insert the larger end of the SNAP'n SAFE coupler into the ground anchor post.
  6. Attach the SNAP'n SAFE coupler to the anchor post with the (2) larger RED corner bolts. Use the 1st and 3rd hole in the anchor post for proper alignment. Fasten (1) washer and (1) nut on each RED bolt. Secure hardware evenly by tightening each nut in an alternating pattern.
    Note: RED bolts must be installed on the same side of the post. MAX TORQUE = 21 FT LBS.
  7. Slide the sign post over the top half of the SNAP'n SAFE coupler and attach with the (2) smaller SILVER corner bolts. Use the 2nd and 3rd hole in the sign post for proper alignment. Fasten (1) washer and (1) nut on each SILVER bolt. Secure hardware evenly by tightening each nut in an alternating pattern.
    Note: SILVER bolts must be installed on the same side of the post. MAX TORQUE = 21 FT LBS.
