What's The Difference Between Blu-Mount And General Purpose Mounts?

When looking at vinyl railing post mounts, you may see Blu-mount and general-purpose mount options. These two options may look similar, but they have distinct uses. Blu-mount post mounts are created to be installed on concrete, wood, and composite decking. On the other hand, general-purpose vinyl railing mounts are only designed for vinyl posts and will stay in place. So, depending on your post needs, you will need one or the other.

Is The Blu-mount Post Better Than A General Purpose Post Mount?

There is no "better" or "best" option, and the type of post you need is more likely based on what you will use the post mount for. If you only need a post mount for vinyl railing, then a general-purpose post mount is the correct answer. However, if you would like a post mount for various other projects, the Blu-mount post is ideal. The Dichromate coating may make it last longer, so this option may also be better for severe weather environments.
