Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works but wobbly Easy to install but best for use with a lightweight mailbox, this post will do the trick if you are in a hurry. The metal spike is easy to drive into the ground if you use sledge hammer. The post can then be driven onto the spike's metal, above-ground extension. The hole in the post is slightly under-sized, allowing you to rotate and position the post first, then drive it home with the spike firmly embedded in the wood. Attaching the cross piece and mail box is easy using the supplied screws. A power screwdriver makes the job easier. The only drawback is with the design itself. The steel spike flexes slightly at ground level, so the post and box are a little wobbly. If you live in an area with enthusiastic or aggressive letter carriers, or if your mailboxes are routinely victimized by bat-wielding youths, you should consider this a quick fix until you can create a more permanent, bat-shattering solution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by easy install, nice price this post was installed within minutes, with just a hammer. one tip would be to put the post on the peg before installing the mailbox make for an easier install April 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Installed Easy I am an older woman and I installed this myself with no help. It's good and sturdy and better quality than I expected. Make sure to use a level and it might help to pre-drill the holes for the 8 screws securing the mailbox platform and the mailbox. July 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple install and nice looking I'm not the handiest person when it comes to tools but this was about as easy as it gets. Drive stake into the ground, drive cedar post onto stake and down to ground level, attach a few screws to the post and mailbox and you're done. Took maybe 20 minutes. Kept an eye on keeping it level and straight and took my time. Very nice looking! Sure beats digging post hole and adding cement. August 3, 2014
