M1-LT Steel Post
2.5″ x 2.5″ x 57″ Matching Steel Post for the M1-LT Mailbox.
The M1-LT Steel Post is made specifically for supporting the M1-LT Mailbox. It is made out of the same material thickness as all of our posts. A 10 gauge square steel post with a welded 6.5″ square 3/16″ steel plate with pre-drilled holes to match up with the mailbox holes for an easy installation. Fort Knox Mailboxes can be mounted to just about any type of post that is made out of most structural materials. Our mailboxes come with four holes drilled in the bottom of the mailbox for easy mounting to multiple surfaces. We do recommend that whatever you are mounting a Fort Knox Mailbox too, is substantial and can handle the weight of the mailbox. You also want it mounted in a way that keeps the mailbox from being stolen. If what you have is not going to support your new mailbox, then we have a matching 57″ long steel post for a quick and easy installation. It installs just like a fence post in the ground, and it will need to be approximately 2 feet down in the ground and cemented in. 1 or 2 bags of cement is suggested. If you need a post to be surface mounted to a sidewalk or cement slab, then we have surface mount posts (Breakaway) as well.
(Mailbox Sold Separately)
– In-Ground Post for cementing in a dirt area.

The steel posts that we use to support the M1-LT Mailbox:
( 2.5″ x 2.5″ x 57″ Long for the M1-lT Mailbox ). (If you have a preexisting post, make sure it can support our mailbox weight)
The post comes separate from the mailbox and is bolted from underneath with “carriage bolts,” so that no theft of the mailbox is possible. This is also ideal if you move, and want to take the mailbox with you instead of pulling the steel post out of the concrete. Posts are made of 10 gauge square tubing. (10 gauge = 1/8″). The posts are buried in approximately 2 feet of concrete.
