If people really want to steal your mailbox they will. My mailbox is still sitting securely

Will this hollow aluminum post slide over a wooden mailbox post (4x4) previously secured into ground with Quickcrete?

No.. You have to measure the inside of the post and cut the 4x4 to fit.It is roughly 1/4 - 3/8 inch off of 2 sides of the 4x4

Is the Gibraltar post compatible with the Mail Boss mailboxes?

Asked by Ron February 26, 2020

Answers

The 'recommended' mounting plate is a little too small for the large box we bought with it. Its mounted and functioning, but wobbles excessively and will eventually come loose, if we don't add a large footprint plate or wood platform between the bottom of the box and mounting plate on the top of the post.

Can this post be cut? I would need this post to be 41". If yes, what kind of tool.

Yes - hacksaw, reciprocating saw or grinder with a diamond blade

Let me say that this is beautifully made and I look forward to using it. The reason I only gave it three stars is because I'm having trouble installing the mounting bracket onto the post. If I'm doing something wrong, I'll certainly correct this review. The nuts that correspond to the "A" screws are too small. They can be screwed onto the screw for one or two turns, then they won't go any farther. I'll have to get new screws/nuts at the hardware store.

Looks great and very durable. I mounted the Oasis 360 mailbox and this combination looks great. I dug about 1' into ground and placed a piece of spare plywood on top of post and used a 10lbs sledge and tapped about 6" for a secure fit to dirt. I then mixed one 80lbs bag of concrete to secure the post in ground and I also filled the post with concrete 1" from top. Added rocks at base to cover concrete. Aluminum post is solid and looks great, I added a couple pictures, enjoy.

Very good mailbox post
The picture of this mailbox doesnt show it well but the finish on this post is a textured finish. This post was easy to install with fast setting concrete. Don't bother with trying to fit a 4x4 post inside of it for stability. You dont need to! I bought an oversized mailbox and it fit perfectly on the mounting bracket and was very sturdy.
