Well, after I asked the question, I took a leap of faith and purchased it. (Actually, I just knew Home Depot has a decent return policy) I live in a hurricane state, so placing it just 12" in the ground is not a good idea unless you want a mailbox shaped missile flying around your neighborhood during the next big storm. The pole is definitely too short to fit 24" in the ground and still meet the USPS height requirement. For anyone with the same concern, I found a solution. I took the old 4x4 wooden post from the previous mailbox and cut 12" off the bottom. I then screwed it to the bottom of the metal post. Essentially extending it another foot. You can go as short as 8" and still be good. Encase the entire thing in a good size concrete shoe and it's perfect. Deep and secure yet tall enough to meet the USPS height requirement.

Is the black a shiny black or matte finish? thanks,

Asked by Ellen September 17, 2018

I'd describe the finish as satin. Its neither flat nor glossy.

I ordered the black post, it was very easy to put together,no chipped paint and is well made of all metal with no plastic,it looks great and set in about 15 inches deep of quick concrete. I used two small post levels and that worked out fine as it is straight, the design is beautiful. Only problem was the foam pads on the mailbox arm would not stay on so i had to use some gorilla glue to hold them, the pads on the lower trim covers had a glue type substance on them and they stuck just fine. So bottom line is I am very happy with this and it looks great!

I am very pleased with this mailbox. Although it is not a centerpiece, it is definitely an enhancement to our home's curb appeal. The assembly and installation was simple. Probably the hardest part was digging the hole and adding the fast-setting concrete mix, which you'd have to do with any new mailbox. The part of the post that actually holds the mailbox itself takes a little coordination - it is two pieces that need to be held tightly together at the proper height specified by the USPS. An extra set of hands for this step makes it much easier. This is a great product, I make no hesitation recommending it!

I love this Nantucket Decorative In- ground steel mailbox. It is extremely study and it has such a nice design. I can’t wait till my son can put it in the ground for me. This black mailbox would go with any style home from rustic to modern. From the directions it looks like it will very easy to install which is always a plus. I like having my home stand out from the curb and this mailbox will certainly help my home to do that, it was also very well packaged as the pictures show

A very unique mailbox post design that solves several problems when installing a post. Model # 7513Z Internet #303395342 Architectural Mailboxes Nantucket Decorative In-Ground Steel Mailbox Post in Graphite Bronze We live in a rural community and our mailbox post gets a lot of abuse. I have used wooden posts in the past but wanted something more substantial and better looking. This steel mailbox post has a several parts but they go together easily and make a very solid mailbox post. I especially liked that the base has pre-drilled holes that come with bolts to mount your mailbox securely to the bracket without having to use a piece of wood as with most mailboxes. I would recommend that you drill holes in the bottom of the post and insert rods or screws to help keep the post from twisting in the ground. I didn't do that and poured mine in concrete and it still twisted. I had to go back and add metal rods to keep it from twisting. What is unique about this mailbox post is that the bracket arm can be raised or lowered and rotated 360° so you get it in the right position without a lot of measuring. NOTE, it needs to comply with USPS regulations. - The boxes should be installed with the bottom of the box at a vertical height of between 41-45 inches from the road surface. - Name put on box should have letters at least one inch high. There is an aluminum shroud that hides screws that hold the post together and covers the concrete.

The Nantucket Decorative In-ground Steel Mailbox Post in Black is a heavy duty high-quality post. The post is hollow but very thick. The design is sturdy and will hold up to a large mailbox. The decorative panels at the bottom give the post a very expensive and elegant look. It really is a beautiful post. It is long enough to install several feet into the ground to make sure you consider the frost line. The finish looks very rich and should last. I am very happy with the overal quality of this post.

Looks great! Very sturdy, but lightweight enough to handle for installation. Upon remembering all the measurement issues I encountered the last time I installed a (diff design) mailbox post, I did a mock assembly in my garage while waiting for the new mailbox to arrive. This design makes it easy to adjust the box to postal height requirements (41–45"H from the road surface and are set back 6–8" from the curb or road edge). The arm / box-shelf is held in place by rubber inserts that grip the pole. I am not sure how the rubber grips will hold up to extreme weather conditions over time, but they would be easy enough to replace should they fail.The base escutcheon is also conveniently adjustable to ground level, so there is no rigid installation, making the whole installation less stressful. The only thing I found an issue with was that one of the screws for the ornamental ball topper did not fit tightly into the predrilled hole(s). I found a substitute screw in my can-o-screws and sprayed both screws white to camouflage them (included screws are bare metal). Over-all; the instructions are simple to follow, so just level your post and the rest will be easy and fairly quick to install. Digging and cementing take the majority of your time. Tools/supplies needed are: Philips screwdriver, adjustable wrench, level, and quick cement. One other note; there is no place for house numbers, so be sure that either the mailbox can accommodate them, or that you have some other form of acceptable postal identification. Looks much nicer than anything else on the block and should fair well against plowed snow.

I really love the look of this post but I can't recommend buying it due to a number of frustrations I had with it. It's just not a good value. 1) The instructions do not specify how deep the bottom post should be buried in the ground. There is a picture showing it in the ground but no measurements provided. I used a best guess estimate and went a little over two feet. 2) Unless you concrete the post into the ground it will easily spin because dirt does not have enough static friction against the powder coating to hold it in place. The bottom of the post needs to be squared off to prevent this. An alternative is to concrete the post into the ground but I'm not going to concrete my mailbox post because someday I might need to actually be able to remove it. 3) Mounting the mailbox arm to the post is a pain because there are 4 rubber gaskets that go between the arm and the post. I can only assume they're meant to keep the arm from rotating about the post. But there is nothing that keeps them held in place while assembling the arm. An adhesive backing would be a huge help. If you buy this I recommend measuring where you need the arm to be and marking the pole. After that install the arm with the gaskets. 4) The four mounting holes for the mail box are either, tapped to the wrong thread pitch or the provided bolts are the wrong pitch. I had to manually tap each hole with the bolts because they could not be threaded in by hand as I tried to mount the mail box. On the last hole the bolt head sheared off. So, I only have three bolts holding it in place. Also, the bolts are made of steel while the arm they screw in to appears to be aluminum. Two dissimilar metals means galvanic corrosion is going to happen. Unless I switch the bolts out to aluminium they will eventually corrode and have to be broken off to get the mail box off. My best guess in the=at post itself is galvanized steel with a brown powder coating. It is definitely steel and I really hope it's galvanized, otherwise, it is not going to last long at all. The powder coating quality is just... OK. Lots of little imperfections and the bottom of the arm has some missing. But, since it is on the bottom it isn't noticeable. Not sure if it happened during shipping or if it came from the factory that way. It appears that the decorative base cover and the mail box arm are both aluminum. However, here again they used steel bolts so after a few years getting these apart will probably be impossible.

I'm giving this two stars specifically for the paint job. The paint was flaking off before I even took it out of the box. Even the top cap is peeling. The top cap takes two screws, when carefully hand screwing them in the paint began to flake up around the cap's screw holes. This peeling area will only continue as it weathers in the elements. I could live with the peeling base parts, but the top cap will look horrible. It's unfortunate because the post has a nice classic design and is easy to assemble. I haven't installed it into the ground so I cannot yet comment on how sturdy it can be. I planned on digging a hole and setting the post in concrete but the fact that it is so smooth and round, I'm not certain how to keep it in one place without it spinning around. Perhaps the lower post should have some kind of angled bump out. Regarding the screws, they should really provide screw caps / screw hole covers as the screws are very visible and I assume they'll likely rust over time. Overall, I'm disappointed in this product due to the flaking paint. You wouldn't want to repaint a brand new mail box post immediately after purchasing it, and that's why I cannot recommend it.

Disappointing on many levels. Upon opening the box for this mailbox post, I was disappointed. Although well packaged, with each component wrapped and cushioned, there were many parts that had the paint chipped off. That makes me think that it will not hold up well to the eventual road spray from snowplows, sand and gravel that fly off cars and trucks as they pass. Some parts are steel and some are aluminum, so the steel will rust and the aluminum will show as shiny. I wonder why wasn’t this didn't have a higher quality paint or wasn't powder-coated instead of painted. The assembly was straightforward and instructions clear enough, but there were frustrations when rubber cushion pads kept falling off several times while attaching placing the support-arm sections on to the post. I wonder why these weren’t glued into place at the factory. Of course, assembly meant other parts bumping into each other, and more paint chipped off. I can see this becoming a real problem and looking terrible after a few months in actual use. Most of the assembly screws were shiny nickel plated, with no attempt to paint or color match them to the rest of the post. They really are obvious, even from a distance. The only two screws that were painted were colored black, which doesn’t match the metallic grey of the rest of the post. I found that adjusting the height was very easy to do, as the support arm basically clamps onto the post at whatever height you wish. In actual use, this mailbox post should last a long time, provided attention is paid to actual placement into the ground, perhaps even adding concrete around the post below grade, but for the price, the lack of quality paint is a disappointment.

This steel mail box post is very attractive option to add curb appeal to your property. Assembly is very easy, the hardest part about putting the post together was alighting the two poles and putting the screws in. The post is very heavy duty. Once you drop it into the ground you add your concrete and your good to go. There is an aluminum cover that goes on at the bottom and arms to support the mailbox on top that all bifurcate and screw together. Beautiful oil rubbed bronze that looks awesome.
