This mailbox post is designed to put the mailbox on the left of the post. It looks sideways when set-up. It is very strange, but you cannot mount the mailbox how you would think it should be, with the post arm facing the street; it faces to the left. The mailbox actually sits parallel to the post, not perpendicular to it. Very strange set-up. I wish the picture of the post actually had a mailbox in it, I would have never bought it.
I mounted this to a 4 x 4 post beside my front steps. I painted the post with deck paint before mounting the box. I drilled holes through the back of the mailbox and mounted it directly to the post with 2" screws and then mounted a solar light on top of the post. Looks amazing! Make sure you put a drop of oil in the key slot. A little imagination and a little work=beautiful!
