Updating to a Locking Mailbox can be a matter of home safety & security as well as a basic needed home improvement.
In our area as well as many all over, mail theft is on the rise. Doesn’t matter if you live in a rural area, gated community or busy intersection. Mail theft is big business and its only a matter of time till they come across your easy to open mailbox to “grab & go”.
Our mail is full of junk but its also full of enough private information for identity theft. And what a time consuming headache to deal with when this does happen. Why risk it?
The old mailbox was a bit outdated & in need of repair…
The post needed replacing too. This was a project that Randy (Carol’s Husband) did. He ripped out the old post, fixed the hole & poured fresh cement to hold the new post. And treated the post with a pretty stain.
And the post is topped off with a decorative Post Cap.
Love the sleek & stylish look of the new mailbox. The back simply unlocks to retrieve the mail. Easy!
There are lots of terrific lock mailbox options in the local home improvement stores as well as online. Of course, even lock mailboxes aren’t fool proof but at least it makes mail theft more difficult. Hopefully, thieves will move on to look for an easier target.
