The in-ground post is 47” long and is designed to be mounted in a hole dug in the ground and filled with concrete. The surface-mount post is 28” long and is designed to be mounted on a concrete surface using mounting bolts.
MailCase posts are heavy and strong with the post made from 12 gauge powder coated steel and the mounting flange (the platform which holds the mailbox) made from 1/4″ steel. The sides of the post are 4” X 4”.
The MailCase mailbox has 4 mounting holes in the bottom which line up with 4 mounting holes in the top mounting flange of the post. If you buy a MailCase plus Post Combo the mounting hardware comes with the post. If you are installing the MailCase plus post combo, visit our Installation page for additional instructions.
