    This is the stupidest way I have ever seen someone install a mailbox!:dizzy:
    Apparently the big box home stores are selling these it a 4x4 with a 1inX1in piece of angel drove in the center that goes 2ft in the ground sand in this case :dizzy:

    And they call me to complain that I knock there mailbox down plowing the road:angry:

    But after showing them the pics and explaining that I don’t care to be held responsible
    For someone’s poor workmanship but would be more than happy to install it correctly for a small fee they went for it payup

    Yep, I've seen them like that before. I love watching MNDOT haulin' down the highway and blasting mailboxes over, it really teaches people how to mount their boxes properly. :jester:

    Ive seen those at lowes good mail box, bad mount. The box should be on a 4x4 in the ground with concrete around it.
