I purchased the MailBoss post and base plate as a set. They come in as two packages. Overall, I like that both pieces are sturdy, and they appear to be in the same color. Unfortunately, the two of the screw holes of the post and the base plate do not align well, making it complicated to install. I had to drill the outer holes bigger and used washers to hide the holes. Would have been nice if the measurements are more accurate.
Hi Frank Lin,
Thank you for your review.
I'm sorry to hear there was a manufacturing defect with the base plate and the post mounting holes not aligning properly. We have reached out to you in a separate email to discuss further action and get additional details regarding your case.

I needed a MailBoss post for the matching mailbox that someone had given me. I found it at a reasonable price here at Mailbox Empire. The transaction went smoothly, the post was delivered in perfect condition even sooner than expected. It took me awhile to find someone who could install it for me, but it looks fantastic and is as solid as a steel post -- just what I need! Thanks!
