Matching Steel T-Post
If you need to mount 2 or 3 Fort Knox Mailboxes on one post, then our T-Posts will do just that. No need to install individual posts or dig extra holes. Our T-posts will easily mount up to 3 different mailboxes. The mailboxes don’t all have to be the same either if you and your neighbors have different mail delivery needs. The T-Post can support 2 or 3 Mailboxes, but once you move up to 4 or more mailboxes, then the steel racks are required. This means that there would be two support posts instead of the one with the T-Post. All of our posts are made using the same material thickness, and are completely welded to support our heavy duty mailboxes.
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 these heavy mailboxes. 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 that is pre-drilled to match the holes in the mailbox. It installs just like a fence post, and depending upon what size of mailbox you have, it will need to be buried 2 feet in the ground and cemented in. If you need a post to be surface mounted to a sidewalk or cement slab, then we have surface mount posts (Breakaway) as well.
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.
