Given their outdoor location and continuous exposure to rain, snow, or wind, mailboxes gradually wear out over the years. High temperature usually leads to warped locks, while abnormally high humidity results in rust.

With the help of expert maintenance and timely repairs, the lifespan of a mailbox can be significantly expanded.

Types of Mailboxes We Work With
Given the rich variety of mailboxes that are currently available on the market, it is important to work with a reliable, experienced, and knowledgeable locksmith who can handle your exact requirements. Some of the most frequent types of mailboxes we are asked to service or install are wall-mounted mailboxes, free-standing mailboxes, and cluster mailboxes.
Wall-mounted mailboxes are used instead of free-standing, curbside mailboxes. Replacing such a mailbox will usually require permission from local postmasters. This model comes in a variety of different styles and sizes. All mounted mailboxes need to have the Postmaster General’s seal of approval. This guarantees the mailbox complies with the US Postal Service’s requirements regarding construction and construction. It is important for these mailboxes to be able to hold a regular day’s volume of mail. This should include anything from letters the size of an envelope, catalogs, and postcards. These mailboxes need to be installed next to the main entrance to allow mail carriers to easily identify them.
Curbside mailboxes are also known as free-standing mailboxes and they need to be mounted on dedicated pedestals or posts. These models must also comply with the same Postmaster General’s seal of approval requirements regarding construction and size. If you decide to either buy or build your own curbside mailbox, you will also need to make sure it fully meets these standards. Start by getting in touch with a local postmaster and showing them your building plans or custom-made box to get their approval. These mailboxes should be installed your 41″ to 45″ from the surface of the road to the bottom of the mailbox and 6″ to 8″ back from the curb. Provided you do not have a raised curb, you should get in touch with a local postmaster and ask for additional information. You should also set up the number of your house or apartment on your mailbox and add your complete home or office address. This is necessary in case the mailbox will be located on a different street from your home or commercial space.
Mailbox posts also have special installation requirements. For example, the Federal Highway Administration recommends posts featuring 4″ x 4″ wooden support or standard aluminum or steel pipe with 2″ in diameter. Heavy concrete or metal pipes should not be used because of the risks associated with them. Mailbox posts should not be buried more than 24” in the ground.
These models are usually installed and used inside apartment buildings and gated communities, right next to other mailboxes. Most of them are standard pin tumbler locks, padlocks, and other types of small-keyed locks for enhanced protection purposes.
If you need help fitting a new lock on a cluster mailbox for your apartment or you need assistance with installing a new mailbox while complying with the regulations, our authorized locksmiths are here to help.
