Cedar drive-in mailbox post kit.
Asked by: katie
You need a rod or post to put inside the post that is long enough to hold the post upright. The bar included in the package is too short to hold the post upright, so you have to purchase something different in addition to the post.

Can this be used to mount multiple post boxes?

I know I wil need a larger plate and braces, but the material does not say whether this product can be used/customized for multiple boxes.
Asked by: DIYer
No way. It is meant for one and it does a poor job at that. I would bet it falls over if you tried to adapt it to more then one.

Cedar Drive-In Mailbox Post Kit is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre This mailbox post was fairly easy to install. That and price were why i bought it. I didnt really expect quality for the price. Like others have mentioned when you try to hammer the cedar post onto the metal rod, the rod just goes deeper into the ground. My post ended up sturdy enough, but not anywhere near as sturdy as i would like. The cedar post isnt high quality wood either. It is very rough and was cracked. I'm considering painting it to make it look better. But overall I give it 3 stars because it works and for the price that is about what i expected.

Both were easy to install, seem sturdy enough, and have weathered well. I think it has a nice look to it. From reading some of the other reviews I was worried about the quality, but both the post and box were in good shape when they arrived, and remained that way through installation. We have had it up about a month, and are very satisfied with it.

Just drive it into the ground, so simple a Cave Man could do it. In the last 25 years, had to replace 6. People don't know how to drive around here. Took it one step above this and dug hole, filled with cement, stuck metal post in, DONE! They knock it down, cut off the old wood, stick a new post on the metal post in the cement.

The wood was marred on one side. We'd hope to paint it, but it's so raw - both the post and the mailbox "holder", we would spend hours sanding. We'll spend a little more and get something more finished. This is going back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cedar post quality was not as expected Not wanting to dig a post hole and fill it with Quikcrete to set it, I found this product and thought I'd give it a try. I was immediately disappointed in the quality of the cedar post and considered returning it due to the wood splitting in places. Not only was I worried about the integrity of the wood; holding up to daily use and changing weather conditions, but it really wasn't as pretty as I'd hoped it would be with ugly, dark splits. Needing to get on with this project after someone took out our old mailbox post unexpectedly, I moved ahead in installing this product with a Gibralter Large size mailbox. Other than the post, the kit is a good one IF you have ground to anchor it in that is not full of rock like I do. It's ideal for a lawn next to the curb. The anchor goes down 15" and in ideal conditions (damp lawn with no rocks) it should go smoothly. I was not so lucky. I ended up having to dig a hole and fill it with Quikcrete after all due to dry conditions and extremely rocky soil. After you've set the anchor you place the cedar post over it (solid end on top with pre-drilled hole over post anchor in ground) and pound it until the cedar post is flush with the ground. Then you place the smaller cedar cross bar into the pre-cut groove on the wood and use the included wood screws to secure the two pieces. There is another piece of wood that I didn't use. It elevates the mailbox off the crossbar, but has no pre-drilled holes. I really didn't see the point. I purchased a Gibralter universal mounting bracket instead and used a Large sized mailbox. All of that went together well, and I added two reflectors to either side of the cedar post (not included) and numbers on the mailbox to finish the job. If the post had been of better quality I would have given this product a higher rating. It's an easy product if your conditions are right, and if you sink the anchor properly the post is secure and will not wobble around. It also measures 42" from the ground to the bottom of the mailbox, which is within the US Postal Service recommended measurements for curbside mailboxes.

We use them as bird house stands. We needed something that would last a little while and look good in the meantime. Cedar requires little to no maintenance, due to its inherent properties that make it resistant to rot, decay, and insects, so we got these. We put them in the corner of our property which has a significant amount of tree root and subterranean vine action going on. Luckily we didn't hit any thing and installation was a breeze. We only used the anchor and the 4x4 post. The two top pieces were discarded. After hammering in the anchor and hammering the post onto the anchor, we used outdoor construction glue (DAP Dynagrip- also purchased at Home Depot) on the top of the post and placed our birdhouses on them. My wife loves them. It was a good choice. They should last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for me I am a 25 year old elementary school teacher whose husband is currently deployed. I'm mildly handy, in that I can use a drill and mow the lawn, but as soon as you start asking me to mix concrete and dig even holes we are going to have problems. I came home one afternoon to find our mailbox on its side and, being that I couldn't let it wait until hubs gets home, I set out to Home Depot to figure out my options. I was able to put this post up, with ease, on my own. It was not in the 10 minutes that everyone else described - but we can chalk that up to my "mild handiness". It is strong, sturdy, maybe a little tall, but will be sufficient as a mail box.
