Your can buy vinyl post covers and pore around them. If the post ever needs replacing you can just lift out the post.
It's just like yours, a 4 x 4 post. Mine has been in the ground for over 10 years, but the post itself has rotted. Now if I planned things out better, which I didn't, I would have been able to just pull out the post and put in a new one. Instead, I have to pull out the fence post and the concrete with it.
Also, in one area of my property, termites took a liking to one of the fence post as well as fence boards. So the 4 x 4 post has holes through it. If I could have just unlocked something, pulled the post out, and popped in a new one then that would have been great.
I like the idea of vinyl post covers except that it seems someone can just come by and pull the fence up if they wanted. I rather have a way to lock it in place. I guess something that would have my interest would be some galvanized steel sleeve just because it would seem more solid.
Perhaps there are other ideas?
