Answer: 
Kelsey,
I'm sorry but no the screws have to go in the designated spot otherwise the stability of the cross arm becomes weak and might break off.

The vertical height of the cross-arm is in a fixed position and the distance from the bottom of the post to the point of mail entry is approximately 41.5”. Although the posts themselves are not regulated by the Postal Service, the mailboxes must be in the correct location. The mailbox should be at a minimum height of 41" and maximum height of 45” from the inside floor of the mailbox or point of mail Read More
The vertical height of the cross-arm is in a fixed position and the distance from the bottom of the post to the point of mail entry is approximately 41.5”. Although the posts themselves are not regulated by the Postal Service, the mailboxes must be in the correct location. The mailbox should be at a minimum height of 41" and maximum height of 45” from the inside floor of the mailbox or point of mail entry to the road surface and 6” to 8” from the front face of the curb or road edge to the mailbox door (some local mail deliverers may have different requirements depending on terrain and delivery vehicles). Never install a mailbox post before verifying the correct mailbox placement with your local post office. If in the event the ground level is several inches higher than the road surface, it may be necessary to bury some of the post in ground to get the proper height for the mailbox. However, if in the event the ground is lower than the road surface, it will be necessary to mound dirt in the area of installation. We do not have kits to lengthen the mailbox post. Read Less

I already have a 2x2 steel post in the ground. I want to put 1x4's sandwiched on two sides, to create a 4x4 base on which to put this cover.

I wonder if the bracket that holds the mailbox is attached to the post cover, or if it must be screwed or bolted into the wood 4x4. If so, I'll only have 3/4" of wood in which to screw it. Does anyone know if that'll work? Thanks!

Answer: 
If your steel post is sound however these are often rusted especially near the surface. If you purchase longer self tapping metal screws you could screw the support through the wood and into the metal. The screws that come with it are for wood and are 1 5/8 long if I recall correctly. The bracket screws to the 4x4 through the plastic post.

It is put over a 4x4 and screws in so you have to make sure that it is 3 1/2 inch.

the kit comes with a metal support bracket.. first you put the plastic post over your wood support that's in the ground.. then the metal support bracket screws into the post from the outside of it.. finally the outer plastic decorative support goes over the metal support.. basically yes, the metal support bar that holds the mailbox up is screwed into the wooden post with three screws.. what you're describing would basically be the equivalent of installing the bracket into a furring strip of the same depth.. i'd get a practice board first to see how strong of a hold you can get with a screw of that size (you'll have to get different screws anyhow).. i'd recommend getting one of the lighter weight boxes to go with this post though.. the current design of two screws on top and one on the bottom of the metal support causes movement similar to a house flagpole with the same screw setup.. the bottom only having one screw wants to move.. a four screw setup would make it rock solid and I believe they're working on this currently... as for whether your plan will work or not, i'm not sure the screws would be long enough given the point of the screw takes up depth by itself.. the best solution would be to have someone install it if you don't want to go about removing the metal post.. you basically use a post hole digger and bury the post in an 18" to 24" deep hole and pour quick set concrete in the hole.. it sets firmly within a few minutes and permanently overnight.. I think it would be a better investment to go with the full 4x4 wooden post and ditch the metal one currently there.. I know it's more work but it'll be worth it. Read Less

Thank you for your interest in our products. This post can handle most of our mailboxes for it has a metal angle support brace inside the crossarm. it also has a mounting board that can be used to accommodate a large mailbox by using the spacers.

It can hold all standard mailboxes but if you're getting this post I wouldn't recommend a metal heavy type box. The way the support arm is designed there are two screws in the bottom of it and one on the center top.. so as the box moves slightly as it's used it causes the arm to want to pull itself away from the wooden post as the lip the screw is holding bends.

It can hold all standard mailboxes but if you're getting this post I wouldn't recommend a metal heavy type box. The way the support arm is designed there are two screws in the bottom of it and one on the center top.. so as the box moves slightly as it's used it causes the arm to want to pull itself away from the wooden post as the lip the screw is holding bends. Imagine a hose flagpole with two screws on the bottom and one on the top.. eventually it doesn't hold up. I have 3 other neighbors in my area with the same post and all of them the mailbox appears to point slightly downward instead of straight out.. it's due to the poor design of the metal support arm. Actually they sent me another one but I haven't installed it as yet because i'm trying to figure out how to not have the same thing happen again. For the reasons mentioned I wouldn't recommend this particular post holder. Here is what it looks like for reference. I may try a heavy duty washer against the lip and a hex head lag bolt but that's just a suggestion at this point. But a larger head screw is needed over the small one they send with this kit.. As it stands it needs work in design. Also for the record they sent me another one and asked me to take my 3 star review down, which irritated me because i'm honest in helping with my reviews and don't appreciate customers not being informed so I refused taking my review down.. I could see if the design changed but they sent me the identical product in return, leaving me to figure out on my own how not to have the same thing happen again... How many people have taken their bad reviews down on this? anyhow, here are the images of the metal arm for reference. Read Less

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 63 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by New mailbox It was easy to assemble, then attach the mailbox as well. Much sturdier than our old mailbox March 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Deal! This was easy to install. We put it over an existing post (although nearly rotted). Looks very "plastic" but works well for a good price September 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nicest mailbox post in the whole neighborhood. GREAT VALUE, Very easy to assemble. Looks great. Also purchaced Home Depots heavy duty mailbox as shown in photo. Best mailbox I have ever had. (And I have had alot of them. I'm 60 years old.) Very heavy duty mail box with great magnet on it for very secure closing. This one will defantly not pop open by itself. It was worth ever penny I spent on it. I also got free shipping right to my house and only took a few days to get here. No damage with product in delivery at all. Don't look any further, just get this one. You won't be sorry and your neighbors will envy you. September 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent curb appeal and excellent value After a week or more of comparison shopping I decided to purchase this classic looking mailbox and post. It was easy to install, sturdy and once completed was the nicest standing mailbox in the neighborhood. The combination of the Gibraltar mailbox and Stratford post was an exceptional value and have the appearance of ones found at high end stores. I am thrilled with my purchase and thrilled that I saved a ton by ordering from Home Depot. June 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best looking mailbox and post in neighbors An installation was very easy. I just needed to set 4 x 4 treated wood post, then install this post required few screws only. I added flat bottom plate to mount two mailboxes. August 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy, quick, simple and beautiful. Ordering from The Home Depot was easy and the shipping, quick. Very simple installation instructions with the post (also purchased companion mailbox). I installed the 4 x 4 post (with one 80# bag of concrete) one evening and then mounted the post and mailbox in about 30 minutes the following morning. Consideration: I chose black to match home hardware but also because South Florida well-pumped sprinkler water can leave white mailboxes with a rust color. Several neighbors have commented on how nice the new mailbox looks. July 23, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice mailbox post After my expensive metal mailbox post was hit by a vehicle and destroyed for the fourth time, I decided to try something a bit less expensive. The Stratford mailbox post is only plastic, but from a few feet away it looks like metal. Advantage - you don't ever need to paint it! When it arrived by mail, the mounting kit (screws, nuts, washers, etc) was missing due to a hole in the box. A quick toll-free call to Gibraltar got it to me in just a few days at no cost. Installation was easy - just cut a 4x4 post to the right length then concrete it into a hole in the ground. Let it sit overnight. Then all you need to do is slip the plastic post (two pieces) over the wood post and screw it on, then attach the arm and mailbox platform, and finally attach the mailbox itself (not included). Final assembly only takes about 10 - 15 minutes. One note - this mailbox is several inches higher off the ground than my previous mailboxes, but I guess it passes muster with the delivery lady.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase Our post arrived quickly. When I first saw it I thought it might be too big but once assembled it was a perfect size! It is good quality and durable for all type of weather. It's gives our house a nicer look and for the price, it was just right! Couldn't be happier with our purchase. December 10, 2013
