How far down into the ground does the anchor need to be?

Asked by: Lisa
All the way. I also put in a small cement base to help stabilize it. Whether that is needed will depend on whether you can drive it down into the soil with a sledge hammer on top of the post without digging out rocks that are in the way. If you have to get rocks out, then the resulting soil will not be firm enough to keep the post from wiggling and leaning.

Doesn't the cedar post weaken when being driven down onto the metal post? I would think there would be some spitting/weakening.

No. This was a great purchase, and have had absolutely no regrets! Mailbox looks great, sits on a busy highway, and have had many compliments!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not live up to expectations From the description and reviews I thought this would be an easy fix for my old broken mailbox. I drove the metal stake into the ground to the required depth. I then attached the post to the stake. When attaching the mailbox mounting board, two of the included wood screws sheered off. This was after drilling pilot holes. I had extra screws so no problem. After assembling everything and attaching my mailbox, the post wobbles back and forth. I’m either going to have to remove the post from the ground, dig a hole and fill it with concrete or junk the whole thing and buy a better mailbox post.

Post was slightly crooked out of the box, so if we didn't need it right away, I would have returned it. Hardware provided was not sufficient to mount a metal mailbox. I had to measure and make my own drilling templates to bolt a large metal mailbox on it. I had to provide my own bolts and do my own interpretive measurements. The limited measurements in the instructions would not let the door open. In hindsight, I should have known that a pound in hammer kit could be difficult to keep plumb and level. It's more trouble than just setting a post level in quick set concrete.

I wasn't sure about this product, being a "drive-in" post but took the chance because I love Cedar and it matches my garden lattice. Long story short, it actually was easy to install, did not require a sledgehammer, I used a standard hammer to drive in the metal stake (although I have nice, non-rocky, soft dirt). It does have a tiny bit of sway, maybe an 8th of an inch, but is in no danger of falling over. For my application, as a walk up mailbox near my front door (not a street) it works great and looks very good, distinctive.

I was replacing a post that was mounted on a 24 inch drive in spike anchor. That anchor had rusted through after about eight years in the ground and I wanted a simple replacement. This post comes with a solid tapered steel angle iron. You drive the wider part of the angle iron 15 inches into the ground and then you place a pre-drilled hole in the bottom of the post over the top of the angle iron and then drive the post down on top of it. I used a three pound hand sledge hammer and had no trouble. The post is probably designed to use with a light weight mailbox. We have a very supstantial, heavy metal mailbox that probably weighs about 20 pounds and the post and anchor are supporting it but it would probably be a little more solid if the mailbox were lighter. All in all it was a simple fix at a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for me I am a 25 year old elementary school teacher whose husband is currently deployed. I'm mildly handy, in that I can use a drill and mow the lawn, but as soon as you start asking me to mix concrete and dig even holes we are going to have problems. I came home one afternoon to find our mailbox on its side and, being that I couldn't let it wait until hubs gets home, I set out to Home Depot to figure out my options. I was able to put this post up, with ease, on my own. It was not in the 10 minutes that everyone else described - but we can chalk that up to my "mild handiness". It is strong, sturdy, maybe a little tall, but will be sufficient as a mail box.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from anchor didn’t fit in hole The black anchor didn’t fit into the 4x4 hole. You can imagine how annoying that must have been. If i forced the black anchor into the hole at the bottom i would have split the wood. I suppose they just didn’t drill it wide enough or I got a dud. Also the wood panel won’t fit an oversized or large mailbox. I would look elsewhere.
