Does exactly what you expect
27 Sep 2012
By MrPants

" I've read other reviews that suggest the fixings for this post box are in the wrong position. Ok, so the top two fixings are quite close to the top but it's still easy to install - you just need a good long blade screwdriver.
An excellent feature is the size of the post slot - its big enough to get thick A4 envelopes, magazines etc in, but small enough to ensure thieving hands can't get in - something i was particularly concerned about as the box is fitted to an industrial unit.
Overall very pleased - can definitely recommend.

" High quality product, and couldn't have been easier to install (even with the bar in its current location relative to the screw holes - contrary to the other reviewer, I didn't find that to be a particular problem). "

" I shopped around a fair bit both on the net and in the stores, and this was without doubt the best value. It's just the right size and does the job beautifully. "

" Easy to fit, although would benefit with a template for screw positions. Looks good. Too early to comment on durability as it has just been fitted. Very satisfied. "

A Good Basic Postbox.
4 Jun 2013
By Anonymous
, Surrey
" A good postbox if you mainly receive letters. Large envelopes will have to be bent to insert properly and any packages unless small in thickness or bendable will not go in.
As for fitting I have to agree with some of the other reviewers as the upper two screwholes could have been better positioned. It is not a major problem it just makes fitment of screws a little more difficult but it can be done. Otherwise the postbox is a good basic postbox.

Modern Post Box
25 Oct 2010
By MikeDib
, Bridlington
" Agree with the other (currently) reviewer, top fixing holes are directly in line with the top rail, so you either have put the screws in at angle or drill two new holes. Otherwise very sturdy, and stands the weather well, even near the coast which we are.
So Screwfix, get your supplier to move the top fixing hole up or down by half an inch or so, and the 4 starts would become 5 "

One Major Fault
13 Aug 2009
By redbase

" Good standard - strong and sturdy BUT there is a design fault. The top two fixing holes are directly in line with the bar between the flap and the opening - making it very difficult to fix to a wall. "

Useful kit

" Having had a new front door fitted that did not have a letter box and no space to fit one a post box was the answer. This one appears well made, was easy to fit and does the job. The postman delivered several letters this morning without problem. "

rain
31 Dec 2013
By Cedarwood
, Swindon Wiltshire
" Weather resistant it may be, as for keeping the mail dry it does not. All mail ends up soaking wet if it rains, definitely not impressed.
All I wanted to do was save the postie from getting out of his van and coming down the path.
