Y posts also named as Spar Picket, Star Post, Metal Picket, Steel Post, Steel Picket, Fence Post, etc are widly used in installing Field fence and other fence prodictions such as cattle fence,sheep netting fence and game fence.
In cross-section they form a three-pointed star, about 10 cm in diameter. One end is pointed so the steel post can be more easily hammered into the ground, and the other end is flat to suit the hammer. Holes are pre-drilled along the length of the post to allow wires to be attached to the picket for fixing to Temporary Fence, Barrier Mesh etc.
To hammer them into the ground use a star picket driver which is a section of steel pipe, closed at one end, which is put over the picket like a sleeve. This is far more convenient than swinging a hammer. You can purchase these ready-made, weighted and with handles, at any store selling rural supplies
