Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in our products. I would check with your postal service to make sure what they recommend and normally about 18 inches goes in the ground and a lot of our posts need about 30 inches up into the post to keep in nice and sturdy. So, yes, about 48" 4X4 should be suffecient

Answer: 
Hello TOUPI7,
Mailboxes in most locals are required to be between 41" and 45" tall. Add to that 18" to 24" in the ground and you are looking at about 6' of post. Most stores will carry 4"x4"x8' post which you can have cut down to about 6'. I hope this helps.
Cheers,
Chris

Answer: 
The black metal piece is a spike that anchors the post to the ground. You may drive the spike into the ground using a sledge hammer until the longer, slim portion is completely buried. The wooden post has a hold drilled from the bottom into the upright. The post is driven over the exposed part of the spike, anchoring the post in place.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 50 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Total trash I should have returned this as soon as I opened the box and saw how poorly finished it was. Made the mistake of trying to install itit the cheap wood splintered, nothing came close to fitting correctly and the metal stake could not support the post even before the mailbox was on it! Spend a little more and avoid this cheap mess. Way below what I expect from a product sold at Home Depot. July 9, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Adequate Pros: $30, didn't have to dig a hole. Cons: super wobbly. Also worth spending money on a sledge if you dont have one, because it's work to install with a finishing hammer. July 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by A bit misleading! This product has to be the worst product I have ever purchased from Home Depot, The screws provided were aluminum instead of stainless steel, the heads promptly snapped off when tightening them down and they were way to short for their intended application. The support board was made from CHEAP pressure treated wood that split when trying to install it and the cross member although made from cedar was of low quality....obviously poor QC. Instead of returning it I made the necessary modifications and installed it, It was also very hard to keep it at a vertical level when pounding it into the ground.....the spike needs to be redesigned. For the price I would have expected a far better product....DO NOT BUY this "mailbox post"!! May 15, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Better finishing materials Easy to install and sturdy enough. Two complaints. 1. Screws supplied are inadequate. Use 2" instead of the 1 1/2" 2. Mailbox wood plate is for a small mailbox only. If you have a larger size 8"x19') you will need to get that separately. March 13, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Metal pole rotted away The post box held up for years, but when it came down in a storm, we discovered that the metal had rotted through. I suppose it was good that it was easy to remove the stake, but we now have a post and mail box, and are looking for a replacement stake. Which does not seem to be sold by HD. March 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase I live in town and really don't need a mailbox post out front but my cat tore up my mail when it came through the mail slot in my front door, so I purchased this as a solution. Very easy to install. I used a sledge hammer to pound in the metal post, just be sure it is level in both directions. I dug out around the stake a couple inches so that when I pounded in the cedar post, it would be a couple inches below ground level to help secure it. It isn't wobbly at all.....of course not as solid as cement would be, but sufficient for my purposes. Just be sure the post is level both front to back and side to side. I almost forgot to measure both ways, but I wasn't too far off and it looks great. The post comes with a pine mounting board about 3/4 inch thick. I did predrill all the holes first. You definitely want to on the mounting board because it is so thin. I bought a small Gibraltar mailbox, black steel to mount, and it fit the mounting board perfectly. I wasn't sure it came with the mounting board, so I was very pleased to see it in the box with the post. It mounts to the cedar crossbar with four stainless steel screws that were included. The crossbar attaches to the post with two longer 2 1/2 inch stainless steel screws. Also four screws were included to use to mount the mailbox to the mounting board. All in all, a great setup for the price. Got the post kit and mailbox for $50 and some change. April 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy to setup. easy to setup and adding more characters to get over the minimum requirements. January 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easier than expected. The mailbox post was really easy to install, easier than I expected. The only thing I didn't like about it is that it is very wobbly. January 19, 2016
