        A:  No, you will need to buy a mounting bracket to fit the mailbox you plan to mount on this post. Home Depot stores usually have numbers on mailbox & bracket literature to ensure you get compatible parts.

          A:  No. I used a piece of cedar plank screwed to the horizontal bar and screwed the box to that. I sanded everything first and double coated all with clear spar varnish. Looks good and lasts long. Good luck.

                      Nothing lines up!
                      The hole for the post was off by at least an inch for center, even with a new hole drilled, it doesn't match up still. The wood quality is lacking, very 'rustic'. Like it was dragged behind a truck. The hole in the bottom for the post is also NOT centered.

                        The neighbors like it
                        The pre-drilled hole for attaching the top/horizontal posts was off-set so I used black straight brackets to fasten it. The general wood cut accuracy is lacking but, useable. My soil is sandy so I dug a hole 2/3 the length of the buried portion of the stake, pounded in the stake then poured the concrete around it. The post is handling the 20 pound Architectural mailbox well. There is a little sway to the post. Probably due to the round hole in the post base being driven onto the angle iron.

                          Disappointed in construction quality
                          The construction was sloppy in the cuts and was not square so our filigree could not be installed correctly. Disappointed in so much yellow within the cedar, yes it's natural, but Q&A from Gibraltar implies it is red not yellow. The post has a simple hole drilled in for fitting over the metal stake, but it's not form-fitted so it will be wobbly. We found it to not enhance our curb appeal overall, and replaced it a week later with a hand-made post.

                            Made of aromatic cedar, which is interesting. But expect it to not be uniform if that is what you are looking for. The quality overall was so-so. In particular, the top piece, when screwed on, is over 1/4" out of alignment with the main post. The screw post and hole for it are off-center. At least for me they were. You may have better luck with their QC, or not. Finally, the mounting in the ground is just not solid. Nor do I think it can be made to be. I suppose this is good in the case a car hits it, but this thing wobbles... a lot. I don't understand customers saying that it was nice and solid - it most definitely is not in normal soil.

                            Seems like a very nice, and solid, cedar mailbox post at a reasonable price. Very easy to put together but, as another reviewer suggested, it makes way more sense to put the mounting spike into the post first, and then hammer the whole thing into the ground. With a bit of prep work (pre-measuring for mailbox height and position, and pre-attaching the mailbox mounting brackets), the total installation time was about 15 minutes. Pea gravel does the trick- much easier than cement! I did no wood treatment whatsoever, hoping that the post weathers nice and grey, to match our house paint. I did apply some reddish wood patch into the spaces between the joints, reducing the chance that water will get in there. The only issue I've noticed in the first two weeks is some thin cracks toward the top of the post, but hopefully they will not widen or affect longevity. Fairly pleased with this purchase.

                            Wow, does this mailbox look like money but inverse effort, amazing curb appeal. Paired it with the Everbilt 5 in. Elevated Black Numbers for a sharp contrast, so many compliments.
