Answer: 
I'm sorry but that post will not work with the mailbox you would need to get a Brighton, Ardmore, or a wooden post.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Couldn't get it to stay put This is a fantastic idea, but it simply doesn't work for the type of ground I was putting it in. I injured myself, trying to install this post. I live in the desert, where there tends to be a lot of caliche and very hard clay. When I finally found a spot in my yard where I could at least get the post to to the depth where the ground plate would meet the ground, the post wouldn't grip and stay in place. The mailbox leaned and felt loose. I am going to have to use concrete anyway, or simply find another solution. I do not recommend this for hard soil. October 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for a quick fix My mailbox on a wood post in cement suddenly seemed to mysteriously disintegrate so I wanted an inexpensive replacement to see if it would be vandalized. Installation was quick and went smoothly. The post and box are of minimum quality but functional. Hopefully they'll last until I can have a brick replacement built. August 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steel Auger Mailbox Post Kit Simple to install. Looks Great. Anxious to see how it winters with the freezing and thawing that happens in extreme northern Ohio. Has to stand up to snow thrown by plows as well. Keeping my fingers crossed. October 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fits most but not all Bought this along with the "Gibraltar Mailboxes Mailsafe II Locking Postbox" Little did I know the Gibraltor series are labeled with size indicators (A,B,C,D, etc) This post was made to support a mailbox in the A,B,C range while the one I bought was a D. Great concept and ease of installation to elliminate the digging, concrete, hassle. Too bad I never got a chance to really try it out as I ended up returning it. September 14, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent system for putting up a mailbox Excellent system for putting up a mailbox in a neighborhood with lots of adolescents. This is the 5th time I have I have had to replace either mailbox or it's support in 7 years. I tried making them more and more durable even filling 5 gallon steel milk canister with cement. That one was hit by a drunk driver . I give up! This was easy to set up(<10 minutes), not expensive and if it needs replacement within 1-2 years, I would use it again. January 26, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works Ok I guess Purchased with Gibraltar Mailboxes Mailsafe II Locking Rural Mailbox. Be aware the post mounting brackets do not fit the mailbox. The bracket is 3 inches too narrow. You will need to spend money for nuts, bolts, washers, and spacers to mount the box to the post. It's fairly sturdy, but a bag of concrete at the top several inches of the post the will make it solid and secure. August 3, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install This is a nice product. Good quality, easily understood instructions. The only difficulty I had was as I twisted it further in the ground I eventually realized it was not aligned - it seemed to go from level to off level before I realized it. Decided to go with it rather than starting over, and it looks good enough for me. February 26, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Very average kit, not easy to install Unless you install it in sandy soil, the post is pretty hard to screw in. Make sure you have enough manpower and get ready to sweat. I tried 3 wholes before I was able to get it all the way down. And even after it was rocking a bit, although I don't think it can topple. June 19, 2012
