The steel posts that we use to support our heavy mailboxes:
( 2.5″ x 2.5″ x 57″ Long for the M1-LT Mailboxes ).
( 4″ x 4″ x 57″ Long for the Small Standard Mailboxe ).
( 5″ x 5″ x 57″ Long for the Large Standard, Fortress, Vacationer & Senator Mailboxes ).
(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″ thick). The posts are then buried in approximately 2 feet of concrete. If you need a surface mount (break-away) post, then we have those as well.
