A Durable Mailbox that Almost Meets Specifications
UBHappy from Philadelphia, PA
Our 10 year old mailbox took a beating (literally!) by vandals in March, 2013 and had to be replaced. I choose the Gibraltar (Solar Group) Tuff Body mailbox for its strength, durability and good looks. The mailbox shell, door and flag are made of 12 gauge steel sheet while the floor and back panel are 18 gauge steel by comparison most conventional mailboxes are made from 20-22 gauge sheet metal. The Tuff Body has tack-welded construction and a heavy-duty full length door hinge rather than metal-crimping and rivets used in typical mailboxes. The Tuff Body has a magnetic latch to keep the door securely closed and is fully protected, both inside and out, against rust and corrosion with a baked-on powder paint coating that should last for many, many years. The Tuff Body dimensions are similar to a standard size mailbox: 20.25Ãâ (outside length 18.25Ãâ inside length with a 1.25Ãârecess for the door and 0.75Ãâ recess for the back panel), 7Ãâ (width), and 9.75Ãâ (outside height 9Ãâ inside height). The Tuff Body requires some simple assemblyattachment of the flag to the mailbox and you have to supply your own hardware (screws) to attach the mailbox to your post. Although the Tuff Body that I purchased weighed 16.8 lb, approximately 15 less than the 20 lb. weight in the Tuff Body specifications, I would still consider this a sturdy, durable and vandal resistant mailbox that is well worth the extra $$$.
Very nice mailbox.

As far as heavy steel mailboxes are concerned, this one is a quite a value concerning construction and finish. The mailbox this one is replacing was a heavier gauge steel, but had a lower quality latch and rusted rather quickly anywhere there was a weld. I can only hope that this one retains it's finish longer.

It is a very sturdy mailbox. Replaced a plastic mailbox. Fits very well on the post. The door magnet makes the door secure. Easy to install.
