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 3.8 out of 5 by 68.
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.

I blame myself, I read the reviews but I was looking for something cheap just incase this thing gets run over again. Well I nailed cheap. Drove the metal post into the ground and tried to add the post on top of it, just like the direction say. Instead of the metal entering the post it went further into the ground. I then added the metal to the post and drove the whole mess into the ground. Its in, its somewhat plumb, it wobbles all over the place. The over quality of the piece of cedar is relatively low. It has some cracks and I don't expect it to last long. I would say you have such better choices, don't waste your time and money unless your looking for a temporary, disposable post that isn't all that steady.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Post split while installing Easy enough, but not only did the post split while I was installing, it also pushed the metal post deeper in the ground than I originally installed it to, so even if the post didn't split, it wouldn't have been stable long term

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Auto install Like multiple have said it is "wobbly" but for the price point considering concrete wood and ease of install its right

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, The Pole is too short to use without additional modifications The pole needs to be longer or have a better method for installation for my use. The short pole and the short metal stake would soon fall over if used it in the soil in my area. I will have to make modifications in order to make this work at all. It is a nice looking ruff cut cedar pole enough said..

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.

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.
