Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jim Looks nice, decent quality, made in China
I recently installed a security door and our mail carrier was grumbling that he could no longer access the mail slot in our front door and that we didn't have a proper mail box available externally. I needed to get something right away so I was happy to receive the mail box sooner than I expected.
I was really hoping to find a U.S. made product but sure enough, as soon as it arrived I could see "Made in China" printed on the outside of the box. That's why I only gave it four stars and with that in mind, I'm glad I only shelled out the money for the mid-range priced mail box from this company.
I have wood siding so I needed to mount some 1x3" blocks in order to center it under my address numbers and have a good flat mounting surface. The box should normally be very easy to mount except that I mounted mine by myself in the dark so it was a challenge to hold it straight, level it and mark the holes. However, once I did that, it was super easy to install.
I opted to replace the screws that came with it in favor of some heavier duty screws but I'm sure the original screws work fine.
Overall, I'm generally happy with it. It has a nice big opening to fit things like magazines, there's room for plenty of mail, the lock gives some added peace of mind and it showed up in good condition, with no scratches or chips in the paint.
This product should serve it's purpose for a good while and I like the appearance.

No more misplaced mail this will knock out the mailman excuse on how he gave my mail to someone else.

Looks great on our house. Good quality but a little on the pricey side.

Although the box came WITHOUT the keys to the locking door, the standard mailbox lock was easy to replace. Otherwise, this box is nicely and strongly built. We are using it in an unconventional way mounting it on the INSIDE of a door, having cut a slot in the back to accommodate the mail slot on the OUTSIDE of the same door. Mail inserted into the slot from the outside falls into the box for later collection. This box is a good size to accept larger pieces of mail and small packages.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doug Excellent Customer Service
I am writing to share my experience with “Architectural Mailboxes”. I am the person who wrote the “Do not buy this product” review due to the challenges of trying to obtain additional keys.
Once I wrote that review, I received an immediate response from the manufacture “Architectural Mailboxes”. Miranda (Account Manager) handled my case in the most professional manner possible. She was in constant contact with me and sent me a new lockset with 8 keys, and it looks like they changed the lock to a more standard lockset.
Without question, this was the best customer support experience I have ever received, and as a result I would highly recommend this product.

This is a very nice locking mail box, but the problem is you can't get keys made. Neither: Home Depot , ACE, a locksmith nor the US Postal Service have blank keys for this lock set.
I would not recommend this product.
