diameter (use a 1/2" drill bit for installation) and comes in 2" and 4"

chinking to aesthetically hide them. Cobra Rod Plugs are also available (included with the 2" 10 pack and 3" 12 pack of Cobra Rods). Cobra Rods can be used in logs,
landscape timbers, deck joists, posts, and other places where moisture
is present. The treatment cycle is 8 to 10 years if wood moisture is 20% or
higher. Cobra Rods are placed into holes drilled in wood at specific
high risk locations (such as at the groundline or near joints and
exposed endgrain) and are dependent upon moisture in the wood to work. Made in Canada.
