Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rawjr Very good mailbox post
The picture of this mailbox doesnt show it well but the finish on this post is a textured finish. This post was easy to install with fast setting concrete. Don't bother with trying to fit a 4x4 post inside of it for stability. You dont need to! I bought an oversized mailbox and it fit perfectly on the mounting bracket and was very sturdy.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jt I would not buy again
Let me state first that it's a nice sleek looking post which is what I was looking for.
The post was 51 inches long and directions say to put this hollow aluminum post 11 inches into the ground. That leaves you with 40 inches of post above ground if you follow directions. The mailbox sits almost flush on top of post with mounting bracket included.
Two problems here, the US Postal Service requires mailbox floor height to be in between 42-48 inches. Using this post the mailbox floor sits at 40 inches. It would not be approved by the USPS and technically they could make you fix it if carrier requests.
Problem #2. Not sure why they sell this post in my part of the country. It is designed to go 11 inches into the ground by itself. It doesn't slide over a 4x4 that goes deeper into the ground, it goes in by itself. With that being said, in states where we have colder winters and the ground freezes, this post is nowhere near long enough to pass the frost line in the ground (around 50inches). So I'm scared to see what this post will look like during winter only being 11inches into the ground installed concrete and gravel.
Would have returned but it was shortly passed the 90 day window of eligible returns.

It was easy to install. I painted it bronze to match my new mailbox. It would be nice if it came in a bronze color.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DCCA2AZ It's a post! It works... But!
If you're going to sell the mailbox in the oil rubbed bronze color then you NEED to make a post that MATCHES! We had to purchase paint to make them look the same. Extra expense and work for the consumer.

Solid aluminum mailbox post was great. Included mounting bracket was steel and would eventually rust so I had to fashion a replacement from angle aluminum.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Markypoo Flimsy, but necessary
I reenforced it with a 4x4.
I recommend this post ONLY for this particular mailbox. The bracket fits perfectly.

This just sets off the mail box, so much better than a 4x4

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by goldmonkey77 Nice slim and contemporary look
Pros: Slim and simple design; durable
The post length is 51 inch. USPS requires 41-45 inch above road level. That means only 10 inch of the post will be buried. Definitely you need concrete to stabilize it.
Please note that the post is slim 3.5 x 3.5 inch. That means you cannot insert it to any old 4x4 wood in the ground. Hope this help.
