Questions & Answers

Hi is this post compatible with Gibraltar mailbox model #DM160V01?

Hi is this post compatible with Gibraltar mailbox model #DM160V01?
Asked by: Salad
Not sure why they say use only with smaller boxes. It has adjustable hardware to fit a couple of different sizes. I even used it with what Gibraltar size D; just had to drill additional holes in the side of the box. It has been in place for six months and is doing fine.

Can you install this unit with concrete mix (as opposed to driving it into ground)?

Asked by: MemphisTinker
Yes. See my review for my experience. It could not be driven into my soil, so I dug a hole and secured it with concrete.

Is it possible to purchase an additional top cap for the post?
Asked by: njpagirl
We contacted the manufacturer and they were nice enough to send us a cap for free. We had a solar light that matched and fit perfectly behind the box on the post by attaching it to the cap.

Steel Drive-In Post Kit, Black is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have mixed reviews for this product. The pole itself is sturdy, well-made, and very easy to put... I have mixed reviews for this product. The pole itself is sturdy, well-made, and very easy to put together. However, the instructions for the "Drive-In" part are poorly written! The bottom pole should be hammered into the ground 18" with the pounding block BEFORE placing the top piece on the pole. The instructions indicate to hammer the bottom pole to the 8" mark into the ground then placing the top pole over the bottom pole. Next, it says to pound the poles into the ground to the 18" mark. This is NOT easy to do, you will lose your leverage of hammering a shorter pole into the ground once you add the top pole. Another thing, the pounding block will NOT fit on the top pole in order to hammer to the 18" mark. There is no way to secure the pounding block to the top pole. I hope this review helps someone else to avaoid the problems that I encountered. I would definitely purchase and recommend this product but only with better instructions given.

The weld between the angle and the vertical post had rusted and broken after 10 years, but the new design is far superior. The weld goes all the way around the joint instead of only having spot welds in two places. My only complaint is that it wobbles a bit on the in-ground base post and is not tight, so it tilts a little. But it works fine to get mail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great in wet clay soil! This drive-in post was very easy to install into wet clay soil by a 55-year old woman, and it was surprisingly sturdy when driven 20 inches deep into the soil. The adjustable arm allowed me to mimic the height of the mailbox next to mine, which was however under the normal height of 41 inches. I especially like the fact that if the postman doesn't like the placement or height of my mailbox, I can easily move or adjust it. I attached it to Gibraltar's standard steel mailbox (E1100B00) using the undermount instructions and had no problem with the installation. I initially thought about using Gibraltar's Lincoln decorative plastic mailbox (PM000B01) but noticed that the side mounting holes did not exactly line up with the holes in the L-brackets provided with the post. However, I do think you could make it work by slightly adjusting the L-brackets. I was about to do that when I broke one of the pieces off the plastic mailbox, so I used the steel mailbox instead. All in all, I'm highly please with the ease of installation and the look and sturdiness of the product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rusted and Broke After Only 3 Years - Good While It Lasted... Installation was fairly easy. The “sharp” (angle-cut) end was easy to drive into the ground. The mounting hardware was a bit awkward to assemble onto the box (which might be unavoidable since the post could accommodate several models of boxes with differing mounting holes). My complaint (and the reason for the review coming a few years after installation) is that the angled arm that supports the box broke off (dropping the box to the ground) when retrieving the mail after only 3 years of service. It was plain to see that the black paint (applied by the factory) provided insufficient protection from water and the parts rusted until they could no longer take the load. Now we may have to wait several days to discover how much we won in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. The box was installed roadside in eastern Massachusetts and was exposed to a modest amount of road salting during 3 winters. However, I think it is reasonable to expect considerably more than 3 years of service from a product of this price. It did look fine and work well until it broke, and it might well survive a lot longer in an arid climate (or at least where no salting is applied in the vicinity). Good luck! :-)

The post went together well using both the limited directions AND looking at the picture on the box. Gibraltar mailbox A did not fit as directed for a regular size mailbox. Had to use set up for large mailbox and insert my own board under box.

The brackets would not accommodate my older Gibraltar mailbox which was in excellent condition. I cut a piece of wood for under my mailbox and secured it to the post with a longer threaded bolt. I screwed the mailbox to the wood, just like what I originally had.

Not that "easy" to assemble, and was missing the cap that goes atop the pole..a small thing but that does give an opening to potential wasps nests and various insects, so we improvised and sealed it. Overall, nothing fancy but does the job.
