It goes very well with the new post. It is large enough to hold a medium sized PO shipping box. Nice finish. I installed everything myself and I am a female senior. I have 3 Inch Solid Brass Satin Nickel Finish House Numbers which I need to install, which will match the trim.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Junkmanjimmy A Stylish Durable And Quality Built Mailbox For The Money
The Gibraltar Industries High Grove Post-Mount Mailbox Size C2 is a great buy for the price. Durability, quality, nicely styled and priced right! I did allot of searching before buying this mailbox. I have had various mailboxes, metal ones and plastic ones over the last 23 years or so. I have stayed away from the rounded double wall plastic ones as I have always disliked the doughboy bulky, bloated, chunky look. Even though they seem to last, and seem trouble free, everone has the unsightly boxes. I guess I am a little picky but I want a nice looking mailbox with a little style in front of my house and to be close to the house color or trim color. Most of what I had found at other stores and online and liked with a little style was priced way too high. This mailbox did not catch my attention at first because of only one color being available in the store and I did not care for black & silver. After checking around and I read other reviews about the quality, I decided on this one in Lt. Bronze even though it was not a color I thought would work for me, I would repaint it white to match the trim on the house.
After receiving it, the Lt. Bronze was a very attractive color, but knowing I would have to match the paint for touchups (which is impossible) in the future to keep it looking sharp, I decided to still do the work to repaint it. I disassembled the mailbox and sanded to repaint white. After all the work I went too I found out how well the mailbox was made and how gorgeous the mailbox is in white! I am very impressed at the quality materials and workmanship of this mailbox, quality made in the USA.
The mailbox is very well made and for the price I believe stands up well to the high priced brand models costing $100's of dollars. Gibraltar Industries needs to take a bow for the nice job they do, I did find one of the four major spot welds for the very back of the box had missed the mark and was not welded, but still the mailbox is one of the very best. I don't believe it will cause a problem and I should get many stylish years of use from it. I would suggest to Gibraltar Industries they offer it in a straight semi-gloss white, it is a knock out in white and would match many houses vinyl windows & trim. I am impressed with this mailbox style, quality and price, plus it being slightly larger (C2) than the normal (C1), keep up the great work Gibraltar Industries and kudos for Home Depot for having this mailbox in their inventory.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MCshopper Great looking mailbox - don't worry about magnet latch
This is a great looking mailbox mounted on a white post. Other reviewers have complained about the magnetic latch failing after a short while. The answer to this problem was on the store display box. Just push the magnet out of it's cylinder and insert a plastic cable tie, cinch it up, cut off the excess and presto you have a better latch than the original.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill it looks great!
It's a lot bigger than the old one, which is very good. The mail isn't stuffed in and nothing gets torn. it took a little work to adapt the old base so that I could attach the new box, but it all worked out. And it looks great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ralphy Very Pleased!
I purchased the mailbox online at the Home Depot website.
It was delivered very quickly and I was able to install it with ease and I picked up a house numbering bracket by the same vendor at the Store in South Lincoln, and got it installed with just two drilled holes and two screws.
It looks great and the Mailman is thrilled.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NormH Great mailbox. Worth the extra spend from a typical unit.
Bought this one because my local Home Depot did not carry this model in Black. I'm glad I decided to take the extra step and buy it online. Very happy with this mailbox. Door is nice and sturdy. Body is thicker gauge steel. Larger than normal - a few inches wider and deeper than a standard mailbox - but not in a bad way. Paint job looks great for now. We'll see how it holds up after a few years in the sun!
