If you buy this because you live in a snowy area and think it is sturdy enough to withstand a snowplow- guess again! Ours has been taken out too many times to count and is currently being held together w/ metal straps and wire! Will replace it with something cheaper in the spring. Bought this one after our cheap one was destroyed the first winter and figured this would fair better! Wrong! I know there is no claim from the company to the effect it could stand up to a snowplow, but the sturdy appearance would make you think so! (According to our highway dept. the plow never actually hits the mailbox- it's the force of the snow!)

    Comments about Step2 MailMaster® Plus Mailbox:

    The model you will recieve is not the same as pictured on this website. For one, to put it together you have to drill your own holes and attach the top to the bottom with the four supplied screws. The screws now show on the outside two on each side just below the address space. The screws they supply rust and the stain drips down the side. Also the space to put the mail is very small and will not hold an overnight letter envelope even though the outside dimensions are very large. The new design is NOT an improvement either functionally or asthetically.

        Comments about Step2 MailMaster® Plus Mailbox:

        Our first Mailmaster Trimline was backed over by the garbage truck. They had it replaced with another one. After 6 months a 4WD pickup ran over it and broke off the treated 4x4 at the ground. Our security cameras seen the action. They showed the box was severed from the bottom post on impact. The bottom post was run over by the sleepy driver and the box was thrown 80 feet up the roadway. The flag was broken (glued back together), one door was on the roadway, the other door was across the road in the ditch, and the post was all scratched. I did manage to set a new post and reinstall the big green box the same day in time for our mail delivery. No, he didn't stop.

            My box has been up for three weeks. My newspaper has been on the ground or spread across the fields four times since then and I will have to somehow jury-rig a back door latch without allowing water to enter the unit. Other than that, it has been fine, though the interior dimensions are a little small. Easy to install and attractive.

            ELAINE L: I agree about the insructions being a bit confusing regarding the flap, but the flap really is just a back to what we refer to as the newspaper slot below the mail area. The flap allows easy access while still protecting contents from the elements. Apr 2, 2014

            paul g: it blocks the newspaper from coming all the way thru and then it allows you to retrieve the paper from the back by lifting the flap so u dont have to get in the road to get paper from front Apr 2, 2014

            A shopper asked: The lower compartment I use for delivery of fliers and newspapers. There is no door on the front and the back opening has a flip-flop cover hinged to the box that flip-flops in the wind. When we have storms and/or wind, the newspaper gets blown away. Suggestion is to close off the back of the mail box compartment and the newspaper apartment. Then add a door on the front of the newspaper compartment. Should be cheaper to manufacture and protects both compartments during strorms. Knowing this can not be done for those on slaes shelves, could you supply a fitted insert that could be secured on the end and greatly reduce air flow through the newspaper compartment? Jan 11, 2014

The screws were moved to the outside and the recess was eliminated for the address labels (there is just a recessed line to use as a guide).

            needsnewmailbox: Why were the screws moved to the outside? It seems to me that that's a step in the wrong direction. On the outside,they're exposed to the elements and will quickly rust, and the ensuing rust staines will look awful. Apr 10, 2014
