Mailbox Post Kit Assembly Instructions

December 22, 2020

New Englander, Dualie, Gardener and Elegant MBP kits

  • Note: Most assembly should be completed before setting the post in the hole.
  • On the main post locate the pre-drilled dowel pin holes for the crossarms.
  • Place dowel pins in crossarm holes. Crossarms will face front (street) and back (residence).
  • (If you have the dualie MBP the holes should face left and right as viewed from the street)
  • Attach crossarms: long on front, short on back (Dualie equal size side-to-side).
  • Using pre-drilled pilot holes apply glue then screw the cross-arms to the post.
  • Attach curved support brace to front of post (Dualie on the sides).
  • Using pre-drilled pilot holes apply glue then screw curved support brace(s) to the post.
  • Attach mailbox mounting plate.
  • If you purchased a base, slide it on to the bottom of the post (base sits at ground level).
  • Dig post hole minimum of 24” deep (up to 30” deep) and twice as wide as the post.
  • Add gravel or crushed stone in the bottom of the hole.
  • Set the assembly in the hole (base will sit at ground level).
  • Backfill around the post with more gravel. This allows water to drain away.
  • Apply a bead of caulk around top of post base to prevent water from collecting between.
  • Screw and glue post cap down.

Our most challenging project yet!
Azek radius rails with a sweep.
We included a concealed aluminum frame inside the bottom rail.
And of course the customer needed four sets.
