Heavy-Duty Lockable Mailbox
Made from 1/4-in. thick steel, the "Fort Knox Mailbox" mounts on top of a 5-in. sq. steel post. The mailbox is 12 in. sq. and 23 in. deep. It has two compartments, a non-lockable one at the top for outgoing mail and a lockable one at the bottom for incoming mail. The mail carrier doesn't need a key to insert the mail. He simply slips it through an 11-in. wide, 1 3/4-in. high slot.
"It's built heavy and always keeps your incoming mail, checks, important documents, keys and other valuables safe," says inventor Frank Schroeder. "The doors are built from 3/16-in. thick steel so they resist even very severe blows. We also offer two other models. Our big æVacation' mailbox is 18 in. high, 12 in. wide and 23 in. deep so it can store mail for a long time. A smaller model that doesn't have an outgoing mail compartment measures 10 in. sq. and 21 in. deep."
Colors for all models include glossy black, creamy white, and hunter green.
The large mailbox sells for $329 plus S&H; the "Vacation" model sells for $449 plus S&H; and the small mailbox for $239 plus S&H. All prices include a steel post. The company also offers a mailbox that mounts on a wall. It sells for $199 plus S&H.
The company also offers a 1/4-in. thick steel newspaper tube that mounts on the post. It sells for $79 plus S&H.
