This mailbox is designed to slip over a 4x4 PTL post that is securely seated in the ground. the post must stick up from your ground's surface by 48".
I simply used my existing Mailbox post after sawing off it's horizontal arm & support brackets.
If you are installing a new post, after you dig your hole, put some gravel in the bottom first.
Then fill in the hole with dirt 2/3's of the way up. Now put in your slug of RediMix. Now finish filling hole.
NOTE: I have found the when you put your concrete in the hole, higher up the post it prevents the wobble that develops when the bottom of the post is 'set' in a concrete anchor. With the 'high' pour you defeat the pendulum effect that occurs with age, and it saves you from having to go back and DO IT AGAIN!
Just make sure to use a level to achieve a true vertical on you post installation. Nuthin' looks like it wuz installed by an idjiot more than a limp-standin' post or pole.

You would have to buy a 72" 4x4 and dig a 18 inch hole to place the 4x4 in then you fill in the hole and put the post over the 4x4. That is sold at Lowes or Home Depot.

Answer: 
No. There's a raised plastic bump out on each side of the door to hold the door closed. In my opinion you could easily attach a magnetic closer if the plastic bump outs fail over time.

No. I wouldn't recommend that. It is a hollow plastic box. The latch would be difficult to attach and the door would most likely flex. Would recommend a steel box for your application.
