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

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 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 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.

This seemed like everything it was promised to be. Seems sturdy enough. I'm happy.

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.
