Customer Questions & Answers

Hi is this post compatible with Gibraltar mailbox model #DM160V01?

Hi is this post compatible with Gibraltar mailbox model #DM160V01?
Asked by: Salad
Thank you for your recent inquiry. The Steel Drive-In Post Kit is constructed from heavy-duty galvanized steel with a black powdered paint finish. It features an adjustable mailbox support arm, which allows the mailbox to be adjusted to the proper height from the ground. The post accommodates standard size which is a T1. The Designer mailbox is a large size mailbox, considered a T2 and is not compatible with this post. We hope you find this information helpful.

Can you install this unit with concrete mix (as opposed to driving it into ground)?

Asked by: MemphisTinker
Here are some pictures, I poured the dry cement in first, then the post, then some water, and more mix. It stayed in place and was high enough, and it's very sturdy

At the two and a half year mark, the weld joint on the the arm broke away due to rusting of the weld on one side. I was able to repair it using epoxy, but at the three mark, the rest of the weld failed, leaving me with a piece of scrap metal.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rusted and Broke After Only 3 Years - Good While It Lasted... Installation was fairly easy. The “sharp” (angle-cut) end was easy to drive into the ground. The mounting hardware was a bit awkward to assemble onto the box (which might be unavoidable since the post could accommodate several models of boxes with differing mounting holes). My complaint (and the reason for the review coming a few years after installation) is that the angled arm that supports the box broke off (dropping the box to the ground) when retrieving the mail after only 3 years of service. It was plain to see that the black paint (applied by the factory) provided insufficient protection from water and the parts rusted until they could no longer take the load. Now we may have to wait several days to discover how much we won in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. The box was installed roadside in eastern Massachusetts and was exposed to a modest amount of road salting during 3 winters. However, I think it is reasonable to expect considerably more than 3 years of service from a product of this price. It did look fine and work well until it broke, and it might well survive a lot longer in an arid climate (or at least where no salting is applied in the vicinity). Good luck! :-)

I bought one of these over a year ago, and I am not happy with it. The mailbox arm is flimsy. The screw that pulls the sleeve together is rusting. You can forget pounding it into the ground if there are any rocks in your soil. It looks cheap and ugly. Pay the money for something better.

Nice that they included a pounding block so you can drive the post into the ground. Instructions could have been clearer but I managed to figure things out. Looks great in the ground.
