Retain-iT® Post System

Retain iT is a DIY-friendly post system for building retaining walls, garden beds, sandpits, and playgrounds. Traditional walls and beds once required drilling and screwing posts and rails.

Retain iT now available in sleek black powder-coat!

Available in three configurations:

  • Corner Post - for perfect 90-degree corners
  • Joiner Post - for joining sleepers in a straight line
  • End Post - for a neat finish to your wall

As functional as it is beautiful, the system has the strength and long-life of high tensile, galvanised steel and is flexible enough to cater to single, double, triple and quadruple sleeper heights.
