Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by REVIEW1 GREAT MAILBOX...... BUT, A FEW DRAWBACKS THAT YOU DON'T READ ABOUT.
Ok, so you've decided to buy this mailbox and now you're reading the reviews to get a better idea about it. Let's start by saying this mailbox is very strong & made well. It is heavy and needs to be mounted on a post that will support it well. Best choice would be Gibraltar Brighton Aluminum Top Mount Post ($50). They come in black or white but you can paint it whatever color you prefer. Also with this mailbox it says you will need a mounting bracket. But if you buy the post I just mentioned above it comes with that bracket saving you $10. The lock mechanism is great because there are no keys to use or lose. You can put your own 3 digit code to open it by following the instructions. The drawback with this is if you get home late and it's dark out, you'll need a light to see the numbers in order to open it. Cellphone light comes in handy! Now that you've got your mail out of the box you notice it's slightly damp/wet! Why? Ahhhh.......And here is the other drawback! First let me be clear, this mailbox, Does Not Leak! No water gets in from rain. The problem is here in the Midwest where our temps get cold in the Fall & Winter. During a cold day or night frost will form on the metal box. As the mailbox gets a little warmer it forms condensation inside the box and causes the mail to become damp and possibly wet at times. I've had this happen many times now. I'm not sure if you can stop the condensation at all but the best thing to do is put a small basket inside or plastic tray to catch the mail. This way it stays off of the mailbox bottom inside and not getting wet. Easy fix! I hope this helps anyone looking to buy this mailbox.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maui96753 This combination locking mailbox is easy to use, larger capacity than most!
I really love my new mailbox! After a rash of mail theft I felt
nervous having my mail sit where anyone could take it and steal my identity, just by opening up the mailbox.
Need to purchase a mounting plate from Home Depot.
Combination easy to set and use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DrEngineer Plan ahead: Must buy mounting bracket in store ($10)
I am very pleased Home Depot provides this combination-lock post-mounted mailbox (online only.) If you order one, make plans to pickup a mounting bracket in the store since it is available in-store only. I am writing this review in hopes to spare others the delays and problems I encountered since at this time it is not clear online that a separate mounting bracket is needed. (There is also an option to make your own post mount from a pine board.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by QueenCreekfarmer very durable
I have had my mailbox for about 2 weeks now and I love it! I don't have to worry about my mail sitting in the box and getting stolen, yes that did happen! One of the reasons I picked this one was because it had the combo lock and not a key. I have enough keys to keep track of and I don't always have to remember to take a key to the mailbox to get my mail.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TonyG Great product
Easy to put in place and maintain. It gives me peace of mind knowing that it would take quite an effort to break in to this box, so not retrieving the mail as soon as you can is not an issue any more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by randy Love the combo lock!
Well built product. Better than I thought it would be. Made the rest of the mailboxes in the neighborhood look bad.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cliff works well to protect mail for 1 or 2 day trips
I read some of the other reviews which were negative. The product I received had no problems. The box seemed well made and worked fine. We needed a mailbox to hold 1 to 3 days mail to prevent being targeted for thief. This is not a vault but sufficient for price.
