It looked good once it was in the dirt to hold up the mailbox. You have to dig 3 feet of dirt. I added some cement to keep it firm into the hole.

Great Product!
Easy install, very stylish with the decorative cover. All the screw holes matched well with the architectural mailbox I ordered from Home Depot.

Great Quality Product!
We added this mailbox as soon as we purchased our home because we wanted a more secured lock-box. We did our research and found this great mailbox that didn't have an insert which we are not a fan of. We've had this installed 4 months now. Very easy to install with detailed instructions. The front door is nice and wide, easy to open, closes on its own and stays shut with a magnet system. The entire box and post feel strong. We concreted the main post and its incredibly stable and sturdy. The added decorative cover gives it a nice touch. Rain stays out due to nice rubber seal on the rear access door which is nice and big so you can easily grab your mail. Overall we love this product and it was a nice addition to our home. It adds a stylish look to your home.

I bought this just for the decorative base, which I installed on my 3 inch yard lamp post. NO ONE and I mean NO ONE sells a white base for a yard lamp. I could find black and other colors, but not white. So, this worked out perfectly. I am sure it would have been a really nice mailbox post.

The China made product had bad threads and the screws broke off creating a unfixable product. We sent it back and the new one did the same. So now it is held together with only 3 screws. I would stay away from this junk.

Nice Post ...
This is a very nice mailbox post and ended up going together and looking great ... I did have a problem w/ one side of the clam shell did not have the 1/4-20 treads tapped deep enough and I had to finish tapping about another 3/8" to be able to close the two halves!
