We have the best looking and functional mailbox on the street. The unit was easy to install over our cedar post. I don't think we'll have to worry about wasps or ants invading our post with this combination. Our post looks sophisticated with several options to place house numbers and street name or resident last name. We also purchased the optional solar cap and love the look. We've received several compliments. Price is a little high, but overall, it has really added to the curb appeal and value of our home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ducksoup Nice mailbox post - easy to assemble and looks great!
This was a nice project and it looks great when you are done. My recommendation would be to have the mailbox you want to mount before assembling the post. It's really important to have the 4X4 at the right height because the horizontal piece only has limited height as to where it can be mounted on the vertical post. If you use a sonotube to mount the post in cement, it's worth the time to slip the mailbox post vertical piece over it to be sure your mailbox height is correct before you set your cement. The only "critical" comment I have about the design is I wish the spaces made to mount numbers were large enough for 4-inch numbers; I could only get 3-inch to fit. We've received many positive comments from neighbors and friends.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by yardman Attractive, but not very substantial when adding a mailbox. Only plastic to attach the box to the newspaper pocket.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mike Decent but not great
I live on a street where cars go past very fast, we get a lot of wind and the snow plows are brutal on mailboxes.
I decided to install this over 3/8" walled square 3.5" channel buried 36" with 2 bags of concrete, the post will never move. It was easy to install. Just using wood screws to attach the mailbox to the post lasted about a month. I ran nuts and bolts through the bottom of the mailbox and all the way though the plastic, and it held together pretty well. The horizontal section was never very stable to the vertical section. The plastic flexed too much. Eventually the plastic failed where the horizontal part bolted to the vertical part.
My mailbox is on the heavier side so that probably didn't help

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sunday The Best Home Project my boyfriend and I completed!
The classic style of this Mayne Dover mailbox stand added a clean and sophisticated look to our yard which is far better than what we had before! It's light in weight as far as handling it to assemble but strong enough to handle our 12 pound mailbox. It was easy to assemble with clear instructions/pictures and the necessary hardware! The only other piece you'll need is the wooden 4 x 4 post that the mailbox stand slides over. I also chose to purchase the Mayne No-Dig Ground Anchor which made the job easier. It's a lot more enjoyable to go get the mail and it has the added feature of the newpaper slot. Love it!

This new post makes our mailbox look so much nicer- I hope to do some landscaping around it now.

I bought this mailbox post to replace a wooden post that I've repainted several times through the years. The maintenance free plastic was a big selling tool as well as the option to add the newspaper holder. This is the best looking mailbox in my entire neighborhood, we've gotten several compliments from our neighbors. It was very easy to install (just slipped over the existing post) and easy to assemble as well. I would highly recommend this post to anyone looking to replace their existing post with an attractive and maintenance free alternative.

This post looks very nice. We've received compliments on it, and it hasn't even been up a week. I really like the way that the newspaper holder is integrated into the post -- gives it a nice appearance.
I'd give it a 5 except for three things:
1. Why isn't there a matching polyethylene mailbox? We ended up having to buy a metal mailbox because we couldn't find a large polyethylene one. This doesn't make sense.
2. There is no way I could have put this together myself. Thank goodness my husband is an engineer. He rigged up a wooden base to use to attach the mailbox to the post.
3. Despite what the instructions say, we used a large mailbox . It works well. We didn't want a small one. However, the large one is less than 14 pounds as per the instructions.
