just got it the other day, for a emergency but if I could I return it, I tough that probably was a one piece plastic box, but the top is glue in, the same day I got it I saw that the top was loose come to find out that is glue to therest of the square or whatever box. I just put some caulking around and installed it, (for emergency need it right away) probably go wit the fortknox, or mailboss, to me is like a toy mail box. will return it to home depot with out charging for the caulking, on time when I get something better.
the door sticks when I'm closing it back to lock it. I have to wiggle with it a bit.
it could not sustain someone willing to pry open the door.
It is made of a LOT of plastic. In fact pretty almost all of it is plastic except for the access door and mail slot. The top, back, bottom, and sides are all plastic
They are made of thin metal and the lock is held by a small piece of metal on the inside. A quick jerk by hand or a simple screwdriver pops the doors open. There is no deadbolt and no heavy metal to make them really secure. It is a wast of money. If you expect your mail to be safe, it isn't even safe from a child.
it's only glued on and attached with teeny screws.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DCDiamond Looks Great and the Size is Perfect
I was in need of a larger mailbox to accommodate magazines and small packages. The mailbox is just the right size and even has a security slot for outgoing mail. My only gripe is that the door sticks when I'm closing it back to lock it. I have to wiggle with it a bit, but that not a huge deal. Still satisfied with my purchase!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DCF10244 Seems to be just as described
While I haven't installed it yet, it's exactly as described. Due to the weather which has been snowy and cold, I'm waiting for a reasonable weather day to put it up.
The design is suitable for installing on post and making a template to install is easily accomplished by punching out the appropriate inserts and marking a paper or cardboard with the hole locations. If you're used to installing this type of configuration, you don't even need a template. Just set the first screw hole - temporarily insert first screw and then level the mailbox and mark the other screw holes which is actually more accurate than trying to use a template.

Nice looking on our post. Compartment for outgoing mail is creative and as secret as it probably could be, given that you cannot lock the postal carrier out of that section. A couple of times the carrier did not get the incoming mail all of the way through the slot, more the fault of the carrier than the box. Nice and secure; would be tough to fish mail out of it.
We did a lot of research on line. This one is the best value out there. Hard to find in the stores.
Installation would have been much easier had the manufacturer provided a template for the screws, but it wasn't awful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by meli123 Large mailbox, flimsy lock
This mailbox is very large. We tested it with all sorts of mail before mounting it to the wall. It fits books and magazines with no problem. The slot in the front pushes back so that mail can drop in. If the mail is too large, it is visible and can be pulled through the slot. When you open the slot, it also reveals a ledge for outgoing mail.
We didn't mount and use the mailbox because the lock was so flimsy. It was difficult to get the mailbox to close and once it was closed, a quick pull loosened the lock. We're returning this and looking for something more secure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rp2s Very nice box, though not really secure.
This is actually a pretty nice mailbox. It is not, however, a secure box. If you read the description, it's made out of plastic, with aluminum on the front cover. It looks great, and has a good sized mail slot opening, along with a sizable space for your mail. I mounted mine to a wooden wall, and it's very sturdy. It did come with screws, but should have also included washers, to minimize the risk of cracking the plastic backing by over tightening the mounting screws. I had (4) washers on hand, and it worked out very well. I want to add that it includes a friction lock, so if you don't really need the fake security, you don't need to use a key every time you get your mail. Overall, I think it was worth the cost.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by john OK for the Price. Lots of Plastic.
This locking mailbox meets the USPS specifications without looking gaudy in size and shape while being fairly affordable. Certainly not Fort Knox but a good enough deterrence. Like how it can hold outgoing mail on the inside.
My real gripe is that I am skeptical about how durable this box is going to be. It is made of a LOT of plastic. In fact pretty almost all of it is plastic except for the access door and mail slot. The top, back, bottom, and sides are all plastic. At best, I am sure the plastic will dull in color over time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by renov8 Not so secure!
I bought this mailbox last year and have had no problems with it. It holds a lot of mail, and I like that it locked, even though the mechanism seemed kind of cheap.
Recently my roommate lost the last copy of the key, so I tried to see how I could access the mail. I expected to have to remove it from the wall and really pry it open. Nope! All I had to do was lift off the lid...it's only glued on and attached with teeny screws.
No way I'm spending near seventy dollars (with tax) again for something a complete novice "breaker" could get into.
