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

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!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GunnersDad Nice product
I haven't installed this post yet, but it looks nice and has a lot of detail. Doesn't look like a cheap piece of plastic. The newspaper box is just the right size for large Sunday papers. I used the online order service and had the post shipped directly to my home. Shipping was free, delivery was quick (less than 1 week) and the online Home Depot service is outstanding. I may never actually walk into a home supply place again, the online service is so good. (Just kidding, I go to Home Depot so often some of the employees think I'm one of their co-workers.)

I purchased this mailbox post in black for our current home and loved it so much that I purchased it in "clay" for the new home we just purchased. This post is very classic in design, held up very well in a very snowy and cold upstate New York winter and is probably the best looking mailbox post on my street. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade the standard wooden mailbox post. It took less than 10 minutes to assemble the two pieces and less than 10 minutes to install over our wooden post. I'm very satisfied with this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by femmedi Quick and easy but what a difference
It took us an afternoon to install. We cut to size the old post and simply slipped Dover mail post over. I can't believe we waited so long - the difference is night and day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie Sturdy and easy to install
The polyethylene mailbox post and polyethylene newspaper holder are sturdy and should give many years of use. Being that these components are "plastic", there is some flex in the whole setup, but nothing serious. The included illustrated instructions are easy to follow.
The mailbox post itself is easy to install -- simply slide it over a 4"x4" wood post (previously placed in the ground), place the newspaper holder (mailbox support arm) at a suitable level, use the pre-drilled holes in the newspaper holder as a guide to drill four holes through the poly post and into the 4x4, and then secure the newspaper holder and poly post to the 4x4 with the provided lag bolts and screws.
In addition to the mailbox post and newspaper holder, a totally new installation also requires obtaining a 4x4 wood post (and "planting" it into the ground), a mailbox, and mailbox mounting hardware.
The instructions show mounting the mailbox on top of the newspaper holder by drilling holes in the floor of the mailbox and the top of the newspaper holder, putting bolts (not provided) through the holes, and securing the bolts with nuts inside the newspaper holder opening. I found it easier to mount the mailbox on the newspaper holder in the same manner in which mailboxes are typically mounted on a wooden support arm -- put screws through the standard holes at the bottom edge of the mailbox and into the side of the top edge of the newspaper holder.
The mailbox post and newspaper box were shipped in two boxes directly from the manufacturer and arrived about three days after I placed the order online with Home Depot. About three weeks later the company called to see if the items arrived in good order and if I was satisfied with the product. (Yes!) That's good customer service rarely seen!
