Answer: 
Not really. The bottom of the box is like a channel about 5.5" wide and about 3/4" deep. You can either put a piece of pressure-treated wood here too attached to your post or they also sell a bracket made of the same material as the box that you can attach to it. The box itself has no way to attach directly to a post.

In my case I had a aluminum arm coming up from my main post and I just drilled through the bottom of the box used a couple of bowls through the box with washers on top and then through the arm. It's not going anywhere! Read Less

Can the indicator flag be mounted on the left or right side of the box? Depending on where it is installed in in front of the house one might need to view it left or right to see it from the front door

Black or yellow as depicted?

Someone asked, "No info on how to install the included small black plastic flag
Asked by Terry January 23, 2015
I recently bought this model of Rubbermaid mailbox but it was missing any papers to show me how to install the small black plastic flag that attached to the lower outside of the mailbox. It was to indicate when the mailman had made a delivery. Can you help me? The model # was MB515B01."

I'm hoping the poster meant yellow. It looks like a yellow flag pops up when the door is opened.

Answer: 
Actually the flag itself is black and it comes with 2 yellow stickers to put on it so you can see it when the mail comes. It just snaps onto the ends of the pivot shaft for the door (over the end of the 1"+/-ring). It can be attacked either side depending on how your mailboxes located compared to your home.

Answer: 
I don't see why not. Our first one became very faded so we repainted it black so I don't see why you couldn't use any color you desire. Just use a good quality paint designed for plastics such as Krylon fusion or something similar.

Answer: 
Hello OldScudder,
If you intend on painting the plastic of this mailbox I recommend using the Rust-Oleum painters touch 2x. I've used this product before with great success. Use a light sand paper to scuff up the plastic of the mailbox before using the paint. There is a link below. I hope this helps.
Cheers,
Chris

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 52 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by a good buy! Attractive and a good size for some larger mail. Have never had a plastic mailbox, so I am anxious to see how it does after several years. I presumed that a bracket was in the box but that was a separate purchase. HD had the mailbox but not the bracket. I ordered on line from HD. It's been a week. It is supposed to be here by Sept. 1. August 30, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Has a problem It's a good mailbox but because it's a plastic product that I think contains silicon I can tell you that nothing sticks to it including mailbox numbers don't waist your time trying to stick metal type numbers to it, I tried the regular adhesive backing that's on the letters, then tried hot glue and then super glue, nothing holds. Finally had to use stencils with paint. Other than that it's an ok mailbox. August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Box Great size...looks great. Easy to attach. Just unscrewed the old box and used same screws to attach this one. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice size, looks durable I showed it at the Post Office before installing it on the existing post. It replaces a smaller and worn out old box. This box is spacious and sturdy looking. It does have a strong chemical odor though - kind of old school black plastic smell. Hopefully after a few weeks in the sun that will be gone. Hopefully. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by love it The yellow flag is mechanical so just in case even though the mailman might forget to raise the red flag, you'll still know you got mail June 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Very happy. Easdy to install. Holds a shoebox! Just wish the kids would stop using it for batting practice. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great mailbox! This will make my second Rubbermaid mailbox. Used my first one for several years and it was all good. Especially loved the yellow indicator tab which told me when I had mail! Great choice of a mailbox! March 10, 2016
