Great Product.
First time that I purchased a home, and needed a Mailbox post along with Mailbox, I order 1). Postal ProWinslow 5 in. x 5 in. Fluted Mailbox Post, in White, 2). Veranda 5 in. x 5 in. x 82 in. Aluminum Post Insert 3). Postal ProHampton Post-Mount Mailbox in Black with White Lettering. Read below for seperate reviews on items. 1). Most mailbox post are supported with a 4x4 wood insert, however treated or not they end up rotting, it is just a matter of how many years, so I decided to go with this Vinyl post (PVC) and an aluminum insert that is used for vinyl fences are gate or corner support I beam, this combination should last for life.. and if you want to change the style, all you need is take 4 screws out, and the post slides ride off the beam. In addition, I really like the 5x5 size as its bigger then standard 4x4 and gives it a better curb appeal, also solar lights are sold to replace the top cap and lets it stand out at night giving it a very nice curb appeal. 2). The I-Beam installation is relatively simple for the ground base, just open the hole to recommended depth, use a level to make sure it is straight, and pour in concrete while keeping it leveled, the top half is a bit more complicated, as the mail post has a small design with vertical lines these hit the edge of the I-Beam and the fix is easy, just had to trim all the edges down about 1/2 an inch, once that is done, the post slides right over the beam. Extra note, this is heavy duty aluminum, it took several blades to cut with a hand grinder, it ate them right up, and I wish the companies would sell these same length as 4x4 Mail-post beams, just takes one more cutting step out of the way. 3). Last but not lease, the mailbox it self, this is also out of vinyl and works great, I haven't had any water leak into it, as well as the latch door opens and closes very snug. It only took about 10 mins top to set it up, the mail post is what brings the mounting brackets, not the mailbox itself (I was surprised to find this out as well). Instructions where really simple and easy to follow. Over all it's a great combo, and I searched before doing this, and was not able to find out if someone had tried it or not (using I-Beam as support), I gave it a chance, and I can honestly say for those DiY guys, this is great for reliability, cost, and maintenance free!

      Worked as expected - description could include that they cannot be used in corner posts. Ordered 2 extra because I did not think of that.
