Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TEM Misleading and not secure
Needed a locking mailbox due to thieves grabbing mail from standard type box. Purchased this "locking" box thinking my mail would be somewhat secure. After mounting it, discovered that you can slide your hand into the mail slot and retrieve any mail sitting in box... Why even put a lock on it??? Crazy that the design allows you to slide hand in and reach bottom of mailbox. Additionally, a simple standard screwdriver can pop the locking door in 2 seconds. This mailbox is not secure and should not be advertised as such. Waste of money.

I purchased this mailbox 3 to 4 years ago and it worked well. There are a couple of things I don't like -it's NOT waterproof. The mail gets wet. I have put a large plastic zipper bag in the box for the mailman to put the mail in in case it rains.
Other than that, I do like that the mailbox locks, and it looks nice. But, the design of the mail slot could be better so that mail cannot be fished out.
A couple of weeks ago the mailbox suddenly became very unstable. Every joint on the post came undone. It was barely standing. I wrote to the Gibraltar company (Not Home Depot) and they replaced the box for free due to a defect. Because of this, I will give the box a 5 star rating.

I love my new black mailbox . Assembly was easy . Just like my old one that a snow plow knocked over . But since the old mailbox the new one has made improvements slightly different post pieces ,making it a bit more sturdy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Elaine Elegant MailBox, Very nice size.
So far it is Looking great - not the easiest thing to put together, the post comes in 4 parts... We did do as others suggested and after we set it up, we filled the base with sand for even more structural stability. Making a concrete base with Quick-crete, not the easiest task. But the mailbox can handle a lot of mail and is easy to unlock, and we were able to set it up to the measurements the post office demands for curbside mail, with no problems.

The box itself is heavily constructed, and it locks. I was concerned the pedestal was a weak point, but once anchored it would take a vehicle strike to move it.

This locking mailbox was easy to assemble and provides the security necessary to assure delivery of my mail. It's weatherproof design works well to protect my mail in inclement weather.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gracer718 Looks great, protects mail well
This mailbox has worked well for the past several months. I'll have to re-review in a year or so. The post has not been an issue as we mounted it in concrete and it has faired quite well. We are in a dry climate, so I cannot attest to the rain. There are holes in the bottom, and I imagine it could get a little moist in there. No issues with paint. It does seem like the birds like to aim and shoot at it, but that's all on the surface and can be washed off. I would recommend this box, it's pretty and sturdy. The lock is a nice bonus. The only thing that is a little difficult is receiving certain size packages because the mail slot is not that large.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DHBuilder Great price, terrible construction
I build in a Southern Living type of community and mailboxes must look period correct. I bought a very expensive mailbox that is cast aluminum, like this one, and was very happy with everything except the price of it, near $400.
Since then I built a spec that I eventually had to lease out and found this mailbox to be much friendlier on the budget. I've been sick about it ever since installation.
As soon as I tightened the connecting rod, the long piece of the body spread apart. It would close back up with no tension on it. As it sits today the mailbox shakes when the wind blows. Terrible construction. It's going in the trash when my renters move out and I put the home back on the market.
