I received the Gibraltar medium Mailbox from the Spark Reviewer program. I am completely happy with this mailbox. It is big enough to handle a lot of mail and packages! It is very well constructed and includes a larger red flag than most mailboxes. I can see it easily from our house across the street. It was very easy to put together with the Gibraltar black plastic post and looks very stylish and modern. I feel that this mailbox will last for many years due to the sturdy material it is constructed from. I recommend!

Pleasantly surprised! Much larger than expected!
Little larger than average
This mailbox is a bit larger than your average one. Makes it easy for the mailperson to fit small packages and large envelopes into it. The installation when paired with the matching post is quick and easy. Should last for many years, no rust or dents. Made of thick plastic and closes tightly. Looks classy!
Sturdy & Roomy!
I wasn’t sure if I would like a “plastic” mailbox. I was worried it would look really cheap but Im pleasantly surprised. Even though it’s plastic, it looks sleek & modern and feels very durable like it will last a long time. It says it’s rust-proof so that is a big plus to hold up against the weather. Medium size but it’s large compared to what I’m used to. I order a lot of things online & normally our mailman has to shove the small packages in our mailbox. This one has a lot more room. No more dented boxes. I do wish the door had a magnet or something to make it shut a little better, not that it’s hard to close by any means. I just think that we may forget to push fully so it might get left slightly open. The front door says U.S. Mail, I think I’m going to try & cover that with our last name somehow. You buy the mounting hardware separately & it’s very easy, just clips right into place. Highly Recommend!
It's up but we wanted to take a picture of it before we did. We live on a busy road so it would be hard to do. The mail box it's self is a good size so hopefully the mail man won't have a hard time with packages. Usually, he shoves them in there and we can't get them out. It has a place for your name or numbers. Hoping the winter won't be to hard on it either. We usually get metal one's that get hit by the plow. Hopefully, by sitting this one back a little it won't get hit. So far so good. Very happy with the quality too. You also have to buy the post separate if you want to mount it to one (you probably could use anything).
Huge, Weatherproof Mailbox. That never needs paint
Received the mailbox in a separate box than the mounting kit. The mailbox comes in one piece. It is made of very sturdy plastic and it will never need painting which is a huge plus! Very easy to install. As a matter of fact it took me less than 5 seconds! All you need to do, provided that you have the mounting kit from Gibraltar, is to simply set it on top of the mounting bracket and it clips right in! I added 4 additional screws, 2 on each side. That was included but optional. This way if a neighborhood kid comes along and tries to lift and take the mailbox. They can not since the screws are holding it securely in place. Rather than just plastic clips. It has a cute plastic red flag on the side to put up, to notify the mail carrier that there is outgoing mail in there. No complaints here. sturdy and does not need painting!
Post for the mailbox
This post kit comes with a metal bar/stand part that will be perfect to protect against potential damage. It also came with a piece of plywood. I will put this up once the weather cools down during the day.
Easy to install
Got this to go with a new mailbox to make a nice new set. The post was easy to install and looks great. Looks way better than the plain wood post we previously had and improved curb appeal dramatically. I’ve already recommended it to friends.
A good sized mailbox
At first glance the box itself seems to be made out of some flimsy plastic but it feels pretty durable and thick. It is larger than our previous mailbox, allowing for more mail or packages to be place inside without cramming them in. It is both wider and longer length ways.
Installation is better with a hand sledge, a drill and drill bit if you don’t have them. The instructions say to leave the stake at least 13 inches above ground which is roughly half the length. So you can drive the stake pretty deep. The post then slides over the stake and rests on the ground according to the instructions. I decided to sink mine into the ground about an inch for added stability. Afterwards grab your drill because you are going to need it. After securing the post to the stake it’s just a matter of more drilling to secure the mount to the post and then that’s about it. Install the box and it’s all pretty secure from there.
Overall not bad and all and has grown on me. Apart from the install which can be annoying, but that’s to be expected with a new mailbox.
Sturdy and Attractive
I received this mailbox and discovered it to be even better than expected. The black plastic finish is rich looking and the construction secure. The medium size is more than adequate for general mail delivery and small packages. My only complaint is that it does not include hardware for fastening it to the post. It looks much more expensive than it is and I am proud to place it in front of my home.
Black Post Mount Mailbox
This plastic mailbox looks good. Easy to install and includes necessary hardware for the installation.
The mailbox door has no magnet lock and has to be closed till it clicked in the closed position. On my opinion most likely the mailman in harry to do his job will leave the door opened rather than carefully trying to lock it till click. Magnet lock would do the trick when mailman needs just lift the door and it will be locked by magnet immediately.
The mailbox will not rust and can be cleaned with water.
There is a mailbox post exist, created by the same company exactly for that mailbox. If you buy both mailbox and the post it will work and look as a set. Please see the pictures attached.
