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.

Is this a universal post? Can I use it with a Architectural Mailbox brand size large (also sold at Home Depot) and if so do I use the Gibraltar or Architectural universal mounting bracket?
Asked by: Zak
Thank you for your interest in our products. The Cedar Drive-in is recommended with any Gibraltar post-mount mailbox with the designation letter codes A, B, C, D or E. If you would like to use a different mailbox, you'll need to verify the mounting pattern for that product to make sure it's compatible. As a reference, the wooden mounting board included with the Gibraltar Cedar Drive-In post measures at 12" in x 6" in.

Can I use a ground anchor post in conjunction with the drive in post that is supplied for more stability!
Asked by: JM
Thank you for your interest in our products. Yes you can use another post ground anchor; however it will be used without the included drive- in anchor.

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.

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.

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.

The cedar is very dry and cracked with very little pressure while installing the post. After I fixed the crack and mounted the mailbox, it was very wobbly and will need braced. This may work fine for a plastic newspaper box, but not a mailbox where you need to pull open a door. Tomorrow I'll add a cement base to brace it, but my recommendation is to use a good solid sunken post and cement if you want something strong.

Very easy to drive the spike into the ground and then the post onto the spike -- using a sledge hammer. Used the post only (as load anchor for a slip-on mailbox post) so did not use the other two wooden pieces. As always, cedar smells wonderful so I allocated the unused cedar cross-piece to my clothes closet as an anti-moth measure.

Very nice cedar grain and pleasant cedar fragrance with this rough-cut solid cedar post. The install was relatively easy for me and my 5 year old. All of the hardware was in the box and the cedar mailbox, also available from HD, finished the look. Time will tell how well it holds-up, but it looks great!
