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

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

Answer: 
I did just today actually, I dug 2 feet into the ground, and added my quick-crete mix, THEN added this post, this is important since you want to make sure the post is high enough for the mailman, and then I added some water, and more concrete to the top, I'll add pictures tomorrow as it's already dark. But it works the same as any other post so far :) hope this helps

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in our products. This is info is for our mailboxes but I don't know why it cannot pertain to the posts:
Our mailboxes are powder coat painted and can be painted a different color. First, wipe the mailbox down with rubbing alcohol to remove dirt and oil. Let the mailbox dry, then paint it with a "Krylon®" type spray paint. Note: painting your mailbox will void any warranty

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in our product. I would not recommend the SDPK for the ST200 Jumbo. The Jumbo is so wide you normally have to make your own mounting board.

Customer Reviews

Steel Drive-In Post Kit, Black is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 19.
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! :-)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rusted out less 2 years If you're looking for temporary post to get you by for a season this is the one for you. The arm rusted and broke off, only made though one winter. Too bad I can not load a picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great in wet clay soil! This drive-in post was very easy to install into wet clay soil by a 55-year old woman, and it was surprisingly sturdy when driven 20 inches deep into the soil. The adjustable arm allowed me to mimic the height of the mailbox next to mine, which was however under the normal height of 41 inches. I especially like the fact that if the postman doesn't like the placement or height of my mailbox, I can easily move or adjust it. I attached it to Gibraltar's standard steel mailbox (E1100B00) using the undermount instructions and had no problem with the installation. I initially thought about using Gibraltar's Lincoln decorative plastic mailbox (PM000B01) but noticed that the side mounting holes did not exactly line up with the holes in the L-brackets provided with the post. However, I do think you could make it work by slightly adjusting the L-brackets. I was about to do that when I broke one of the pieces off the plastic mailbox, so I used the steel mailbox instead. All in all, I'm highly please with the ease of installation and the look and sturdiness of the product.

You'd better have soft ground because this doesn't hold up well to persuasion. Trying to put this into the ground caused it's soft metal to bend badly making it almost impossible to join the top half onto it. Not very impressed but then it wasn't a very expensive lesson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful product the mail box post is wonderful! easy to install. i love that you do not have to cut a piece of wood to mount the mail box to this post.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from In New England, you'll have to dig a hole first I bought this about 2 years ago. There's no way it will go through rocky New England soil by itself. We had to dig a hole. That's almost to be expected but now after 2 years I just noticed that the clamp holding the support arm has rusted through. The support arm is hanging by a thread and I actually had to jury rig it with...wait for it...duct tape. I've been trying to find a replacement for just the support arm and clamp but I can't find anything. Putting in another post in the middle of winter is not going to be feasible. I just hope the duct tape will hold until the Spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from down but not out my gibralter heavy duty black mailbox and gibralter heavy duty drive tn post was hit by a car and survived ., even after a 30 mph collision only the post base was damaged the same mailbox still sits and looks great in front of my home. thank you for a superior box and post.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hollow Steel Post Nice look when installed, but in caliche soil, I recommend a Post Hole digger - do not pound in, I'm sure it will buckle. While the concrete was setting, I filled the post with the leftover concrete & let it set. Now, that post isn't going anywhere! Easy attach mailbox arm, & solid installation of braces will ensure the box won't fall off, and will be hard to steal. Nice, glossy black color should last for years, but I have some touch-up paint for the Camaro I can use, if it begins to chip off.
