upside down...?

Have you run into this before and what might be the thought on installing these posts in this fashion? :wink:

This is a 1988 home with full basement. 4 of these posts installed this way.

The problem isn’t that they appear upside down but that those are temporary telescoping posts not meant for permanent installation.

Previous discussion is HERE

right… that goes without saying… but just curious as to why they would install this way to begin with…

thanks… link was very helpful.

I see even the proper ones installed both ways.

That’s typically the way I see them. The other end has tabs for gripping the I beam.
