"First of all, thank you for the
wonderful Fort Knox Mailbox for our home. It will provide us
with many years of security and good looks. In fact, it may
outlast our house!.... Attached, is a picture of me and our

Fort Knox Mailbox Owner
Some people like to brag about their house, their garden, their
car, their kids or their trophy husband or wife. We like to
brag about our mailboxes! They are the best engineered, best
made, most secure and yes, the most handsome mailboxes in Southern
Oregon. Thank you for providing us with such wonderful mail
receptacles. They have been absolutely great in serving us for
mail pickup and delivery. We wish you well as you continue to
provide the best mailboxes available. Sincerely,"
Jeff and Jean & Red and Leila, OR.
"The custom Vacationer
that you made for us really looks great, now that I finally
got it installed! You make the best security boxes that anyone
could even think of manufacturing! I think my neighbors are
envious, as one kept stopping by to watch our progress as we
mounted the box on the post yesterday! FYI, should you be interested
in my post's construction, it's a full 6" x 6" dimensional rough
sawn heart redwood post that I designed myself. The vertical
part is ten feet long, with about 15" of it above the mailbox's
top and and 3.5 feet of the post is set in concrete. The Vacationer
sits on the post at 42" above the road surface. I attached the
box with eight 3/8" stainless steel hanger bolts, that are set
three inches in the redwood with the machine threads extending
7/8" above the surface. For sealing out the rain water between
the box and the post, I added a perimeter of 1/4" foam weather
stripping to the post with eight rubber washers around each
hanger bolt before it was set in place! The bolts are capped
off on the inside with; rubber washers, stainless flat washers,
and stainless steel acorn nuts. Thanks again for making such
a first class product! I hope my post is worthy of your mailbox,
at least it's just as sturdy!"

You guys are the best! The mailbox was sent to me very quickly
and itís the best Iíve ever seen. When you love a mailbox this
much, you have to customize it. My new pal, Mick at ďBad Ass
PaintĒ located in Los Angeles customized my Fort Knox mailbox
with an incredible one of a kind paint job. Since I live in
a canyon in Los Angeles the kids go up and down each side of
the street batting the mailboxes. Now with the Fort Knox mailbox
I donít have any worries now. Also, theft is no longer a concern
either. This thing is a beast. Sometimes it is the little things
in life that make us the happiest.
All the best,"
"I had my Fort Knox mailbox
hit three times (all hit and run). After the
second time the box, along with the concrete, was knocked
out the ground (pictures above) I "wisely" reset the
box with 8 bags of concrete (w/rebar reinforcement).
Thus, the third time it was hit it was a real pain in
the *$# to deal with! I learned my lesson... cut the
post off at the ground, had a welding shop extend the
post to 6', and reset it... this time with much less
"Hello, Glad you got the
photos. The problems we've had since we switched to
the Fort Knox Mailbox aren't as annoying as having to
constantly replace vandalized mailboxes. Resetting
the Fort Knox box every couple of years is better than
buying and replacing a cheaper box every 3 months!
Takes a lickn' and keeps on tickn'. I'd like to see another
mailbox go through that!
- Thanks Joe!
|"Hello again Janet! Just wanted to tell you
that the mailbox arrived today in excellent condition. It is AWESOME!!!
I can't wait to install it at the curb. And thank you for the
business cards...I will definitely give them out to people, like
myself, that want a bit more security and durability from their
mailboxes. Of course, it doesn't hurt that I work for USPS and
know of some mailboxes that need replacing....LOL!!! I can't wait
till my husband gets home from work and sees it. (Creepy that
I am so excited about a mailbox...but it is definitely a work
of art to me!!!) Thanks again to you and the whole crew there
at Fort Knox Mailboxes....You guys are the BEST!!!!" Diana
|"Big brother, this is
our kinda mailbox. M-60's won't touch it,
maybe a 50 Cal, but not much more. 1/4" real steel.
If you want to remove it, figure on pulling out 135 pound box,
plus the post weighs an additional 45 lbs. Bring your own
APC or half track.
That should simmer down the nit wits."
"I have had some pretty bad experiences with other companies
I have done business with not providing good customer service;
but it is nice to see your company making customer service priority
number one; goes really well with your great product (FortKnox
Mailboxes). Big gold star for really awesome customer service.
Give your whole team a huge thanks."
Kind regards, Alex
|"We just got our 3 small
off-white mailboxes installed on the t-post and they're really
nice! I'm sure the neighbors in our cul-de-sac will take an immediate
liking to them once they see 'em. Thank you so much for offering
such a well crafted and secure mailbox that's also visually appealing
as well. We were very impressed with the quality of construction
and have no fear of having future mail compromised in any way.
It was definitely worth the wait! Thanks again!"
"Thanks very much for delivering the mailbox. It looks
great! Our neighbor who is getting the other brand got a look
at it, and was exclaiming about how strong and good looking
it is. I think he might have wanted one of yours, but maybe
his wife nixed it. We're delighted with it, and hope to install
it before the week is out. My husband and neighbor will be taking
care of installing all of them. Thanks too for getting us the
My husband and neighbor installed the 3 boxes this morning,
and I'll have to say, ours really looks tough but terrific,
as our neighbor told us several times! Because it's on the end,
and it's green, it's quite noticeable. It won't surprise me
if we start getting questions from other people in the neighborhood
who see it as they drive by. It's a very busy street. You know
that I'll be most eager to tell them about you! Thanks again
for your patience with me. (GREAT personalized customer service!!!)
Thanks again for making this an enjoyable process!"
"Well I am quite impressed the mail
box is everything I thought and more. It is HUGE and so well
made. The kid that is trashing my mailboxes, I hope he try's
again with this one. I hope he takes a metal bat and takes a
big swing at it. If I see he in a arm cast I know just what
happen. I am very impressed with your product and the packing
your company did to get it here safely. My son told me the package
stated DO NOT DROP and then commented if you dropped it you
would crack the flooring. :) :)"
"Thank you so much. I am a mail carrier and I recommend
your boxes to everyone I know. I deliver to the ones you have
in roy, wa. and they are great. thanks,"
"You installed "The Fortress" at
our house about 4 years ago. Last night we had a large delivery
made to our residence in Port Orchard via 40' Semi which required
backing down our driveway. I am sorry we don't have a photo.
But in trying to back down the driver hit the box and I heard
the wrenching of metal. On further investigation the front bumper
of the Kenworth was bent 50 degrees from normal and although
the post of the mailbox was loose in the dirt there is not even
a scratch in the paint of our box. We are talking 5' of bumper
hanging out in front of the truck. I was awestruck. A great
product. Thanks Again"

"Just wanted to let you know we
finally received our break-away post last Wednesday, and the
mailbox arrived on Thursday. This was in accordance with the
dates provided on the FedEx tracking numbers. The mailbox arrived
in perfect condition and was exactly what we wanted. We were
very impressed with the quality of construction. However, we
were very skeptical when we saw the shipping carton for the
post. It was badly crushed and water-stained (the cardboard
was still damp). One side of the carton had heavy scrape marks,
as if it had been dragged along the pavement--I think the carton
must have fallen off the truck somewhere on its way to Salem,
OR. But when we removed the post from the carton we were pleasantly
surprised to see that it wasn't even scratched. You did a great
job packing these items. The extra time and materials were well
worth the effort. Otherwise we'd be sitting here right now,
waiting for a replacement post. Anyway, we completed the installation
this past weekend, and the postman left here about an hour ago,
after installing the Arrow lock. He was as impressed as we were
with the general quality and configuration of your product.
He said he'd never seen another mailbox like this one anywhere
in the City of Loma Linda (population about 21,000). He also
made reference to our particular neighborhood, where there is
a high rate of vandalism and theft (they even steal entire mailboxes--including
the USPS mail drop boxes, unbolting them from their attachments!).
The postman felt the security provided by your Fort Knox design
was well worth the extra investment."
"I got the mailbox installed Thanksgiving morning. The
adapter worked great. The whole system is a tank, lets just
see some scumbag try to mess with it now!"

We are thrilled with it- Many thanks."
"Hi, I got my mail box in April of this year and I finally
got around getting it installed in our existing pillaster. As
you can see the result is amazing. I didn't expect it to look
so good even my Wife likes the looks of it. Now she doesn't
have to worry anymore once the mail gets delivered. If we only
get the USPS to improve we got it made in the shade. Thanks
a lot for your great product still made in the the U.S.A."

for getting those holes drilled as requested; they lined up
perfectly and the installation went off without a hitch. The

I bought the Fort Knox mailbox several years ago, but its strength
hadnít been "tested out" until last year. A couple of stupid guys
stole a Toyota pickup and were driving too fast on my country road.
They ran off the road and slammed into my Fort Knox mailbox. It got
tangled up under the truck and tore off the rear axel. It bounced
free and ended up 100 yards down the road. The mailbox survived and
I put it back into the ground. It's a little beat up but still works
perfectly. The thieves escaped into the woods but the pickup was a
total loss. That steel construction is solid! What a great investment!"

with the quality of your workmanship, and am more than pleased with

"Fort Knox Fortress mailbox
1, new Ford pickup 0
Had a teen driver decide to turn
around using driveway across the street. However, when the young driver
backed up she ran into the Fort Knox. Result? Destroyed the right,
rear tail light on her Dad's new Ford truck...bet that cost a bundle!!
Damage to the mailbox? None, other than some minor black paint on
the edge getting chipped off. I am very pleased (not for the damage
to the truck by the young driver) with how strong the mailbox is and
how we can leave town for up to 2 weeks and not have to stop the mail
delivery...and the mail is safe from thieves for everyday incoming
mail. Thanks for designing and building such a great mailbox. Wish
all companies would build in the US and take such pride in their products.

"I've had your standard (10x10x21) mailbox
for more than 10 years in front of my property. No one has tired to
knock the box while passing and no mail thefts. A few days ago a young
man lost control of his truck and went into the ditch, taking out
my mail box in the process. It sheered the bolts holding the box to
the post and tipped the post slightly. The mail box did major damage
to the side of his truck and ripped through the entire length of the
fiberglass shell on the bed of the truck. The box and post had scratches
and some of the powder coating was removed but no dents in the box
or the post or other damage. I got the post out and removed the cement
around the base. I'll be painting the box and post and cementing it
back in the ground. Fantastic product!!!!!!"

mailbox! I knew the specs when I ordered it, but manÖpulling that
thing out of the box was impressive. It almost required two people
just to get it out of the package! All the rest was great. I love
the great packaging, the paint, the tough hinges, the fantastic options
offered to me, great security, and overall quality." Thanks again.
"Dear Fort Knox Mailbox,
We received your standard mailbox (and post) yesterday, and wanted
to let you know we couldn't be happier! The security of the box gives
us a tremendous "piece of mind" knowing that our mail is safe and
secure. We did modify the post by drilling two holes and installing
a "cross" of rebar at the bottom so it cannot be pulled out of the
cement. We live in a rural area, and the mailbox is .10 miles from
our home. Anyway, we'll highly recommend you to our friends, and many
have already come over to see the box, all commenting on the quality
and durability of the construction. We are believers in your terrific
Thanks again, Dan & Theresa, MD.
I'm happy I decided on a Fort Knox a few years ago. There
have been a few attempts to pry it open ... but no dice. Our
neighbors haven't had much luck with the cheaper boxes. Recently
some clown ran over all eight boxes. Hit & run. The Fort Knox
was the only real survivor in the image below. A few scratches,
but I will be putting it back up soon.
You make a great product!"
I wanted to send you a photo of my mailbox after the "accident". This
was the extent of the damage that was done to my mailbox after it
was hit at approximately 50mph. The impact was enough to send the
mailbox, post and 150lbs of concrete about 15' down the ditch. Unfortunately,
the person driving the vehicle didn't stop, but left a handful of
car parts behind. My only consolation that the driver didn't fess
up and pay for the damage was that it probably did $5,000 damage to
their vehicle. I gave the mailbox a couple whacks with a hammer to
straighten out the bent part a bit and it was reset in concrete and
ready for mail the next day. When I moved into this place about 6
months ago the previous owner told me he had given up on a mailbox
and used a PO box instead saying that he was tired of replacing mailboxes
that were either hit with cars or kids w/ baseball bats. That didn't
work for me so I did a little searching and came across you guys -
seems like it was a good choice. Thanks for making a great product."

"I awoke around 2:30 this morning to what I first
thought was a pre 4th of July fireworks display. Then I looked out
my front window to see the car pulling out of my driveway. Evidently
the post of the Fort Knox Mailbox impeded the three point turn which
was being made in my driveway. I regret not having gone outside to
get a license plate number and perhaps summoning the police to see
if the driver of the vehicle was intoxicated. With Soobies 'gentlemens
club' just two doors away from me, I am sure that alcohol may have
been a factor in this mornings incident. Now I will have to buy some
rubbing compound and get the automobile paint off of the mailbox post.
It occurs to me the vehicle took second place."
"Ladies and Gentlemen,
Apparently a truck hit our small standard mailbox while we were out
of town. The mailbox is mounted on three vertical railroad ties out
of the sidewalk and one horizontal railroad tie under the mailbox.
The mailbox and railroad tie under it were thrown about 10-20 feet
and the railroad tie was split in two. Various sundry pieces of plastic
from the truckís lights and body were scattered about. Iím happy to
say that the mailbox survived without even a dent. Just some paint
from the truck was scrapped onto the bottom corner of the mailbox.
So the mailbox is quite rugged." Best regards, Gary
"Hey, thought Iíd drop a line. What made me think
of you was a friend just received a package from the post office,
it was full of his stolen mail. The local Sheriff just arrested a
man who had a room full of stolen mail. We met you 12 years ago at
the Tacoma Dome during a home and garden show. We were in the process
of buying some property to put our house on. We ordered a single box
and post. Have not had a problem, ever. "

Our large 9 slot CBU box was stolen some time ago and I tried
to sell our business neighbors on the FK boxes. Only one joined
me. Some went to PO boxes and others installed similar looking
but inferior boxes in photo. You can see that two have been popped
open and the key latches are broken. The post on my FK box is
encased in a 10" PVC pipe full of concrete!"

"I recently ordered, received and installed a
special box from you. It was the Vacationer extended to 36". It arrived
in great shape, packed so securely that you could hardly damage the
contents. I love the box and wanted to let you know that it really
looks good with the gang of misc boxes we have at our rural delivery
point. It went together very well, but after I got it all installed
I thought that something must be wrong. Why would you build a box
so indestructable and tamper proof and have the four bolts sticking
out the bottom with the nuts exposed. All you would have to do is
quickly remove the nuts and take the box completely off site (if you
were able to lift and move it). DUH! When all else fails, read the
instructions. It says to install the bolts from the bottom of the
post plate up into the box. After getting it all installed I had to
redo the nuts and bolts. I'm one of those picture people who look
at the picture and go from there. I didn't actually read all the instructions
until after the installation was complete. Other than that it's a
great box and will hold a lot of mail."
Thanks, Tom - AZ.

I am well pleased with my custom Fort Knox mailbox. It is now anchored

3 of these mailboxes. (We are moving and leaving our "Senator" for
the next owner, the "Vacationer" will be at our new home, and the
third box is for my rural ranch rental property). I am so impressed
with the handling of our order. Everything arrived perfectly; all
items were well packaged and the order was handled quickly. Thank
you for your consistent quality, both in product and handling of our
order. The extra Medeco keys arrived the next day. We could not be

"Hey, got a FortKnox ďThe FortressĒ mailbox, along
with the steel post, about 3 years ago. Itís had a tree fall on it,
and my sister inlaw back her car into it, survived both without damage.
Last week I awoke to find the post laying across the driveway, 20
feet from where it was installed, a crater where it was planted and
the box nowhere to be seen. Finally found it about 60 feet way, the
sheared off heads of the bolts were about twice that far away, must
have turned into bullets. A car smacked into it and sent it flying.
It was beat up pretty bad, but other than 1 small dent, where it bounced
off a boulder about halfway thru itís flight, there was no real damage.
The corner damage is fairly minor. Spent yesterday sanding down the
post and box, grinding out some scratches, and repainting it all,
re-planted it and it looks like brand new. Thatís a mean mailbox you
guys build. I doubt the car that hit it will be as easily repaired,
given the amount of paint chips I found all over the driveway."-Brian
"Received my mailbox/post and it looks
TERRIFIC! Can't wait to get it up. The craftsmanship is superb!!!
I can't believe with having the breakaway post custom made that it
was delivered to my door over 1000 miles away in 7 business days -
that's what I call service! And the packing job - it was packed better
than I would have packed my grandmother's heirloom china to ship cross
country!!! I'll send you a pic when I get it installed. THANKS AGAIN,
it was a pleasure doing business with you. I couldn't be more satisfied!"
|"Just installed my new mailbox and we can now
take trips without having our mail held. With cutbacks taking
place with the USPS, our local post office was closed resulting
in a new assignment to a post office more than 15 miles away.
Trips to and from the new post office to hold and pickup mail
is now a thing of the past. Also, on several occasions mail never
reached us which could point to someone helping themselves to
our mail. My wife and I now feel secure about our mail arriving
as expected. We did however have to educate our mailman about
the out-going mail compartment. Our first delivery was placed
in that compartment. Stranger things have happened. Of course,
the mailbox construction is a thing to behold. We installed a
breakaway post since we expect to have the box hit from time to
time since our property is situated where the road is on a downward
slope along with a turn to the left. With rain or ice/snow, the
road can be difficult to navigate and every year or so our mailbox
is hit head on. I installed an extra-large concrete slab (24Ēx30Ē)
so new anchor bolts can be installed if the box is knocked over.
The breakaway post will ensure relatively minor damage to the
hapless car or truck sliding off course. The mailbox will Iím
sure survive undamaged. I would be interested in some capability
to notify us when mail arrives. Our mail delivery time is rather
unpredictable. Our house is about 500 feet from the road, hidden
by trees. I looked into several radio controlled devices, but
none on the market will transmit far enough for our situation.
Please let us know if and when you plan to create such a device.
We appreciate the good work you have done to create the Vacationer."

Tuesday night and you were able to squeeze me into your schedule the
very next day. Showing up at 9:00pm and installing our mailbox was

"We have had the slam-lock
mailboxes that you provided for us for a few weeks now, and we are
VERY happy with them. They provide the security we want without limiting
the size of the packages that can be put into the mailbox by the 1
3/4" slot. Our mail carrier is also happy because he does not have
to put packages that won't fit through the 1 3/4" slot behind our
gate or, when it is raining, take those packages back to the post
office with him and leave a message for us to pick up the package
at the post office. I can't imagine why anyone would purchase the
standard lock mailbox when the slam-lock mailboxes cost just a little
The mailboxes are constructed
very well and add to the appearance of our community.
The person that installed our
mailboxes oriented the bolts so the long lock nuts are on the inside
of the mailbox (protruding up into the mailbox), so envelopes or packages
can't be just slid into the mailbox. Do the installation instructions
call for this orientation of the bolts for some reason? Is there anything
wrong with reversing the orientation so the thin, rounded bolt heads
are on the inside of the mailbox? (I have reversed the orientation
of the bolts in my mailbox and haven't detected any potential problems.
If someone wanted to steal the mailbox, it would be easier for them
to just remove the 3 screws holding the mount to the post than to
remove the bolts holding the mailbox to the mount.)
Thanks for providing us with the
information that led to our selection of these slam-lock mailboxes."

"Guys, Thanks for the beautiful mailbox
and mounting post. It was beautifully packaged and arrived with nary
a scratch. I dug the post hole with the aid of a jackhammer to get
past some deep rocks and concrete, but I was able to get it done.
If anything, I went too deep, but that's always better than not deep
I'm waiting for the concrete to cure, then I'll mount the mailbox
on the post. But even now it's pretty darn solid. Thanks for the beautiful
piece of work, and thanks for getting it here so quickly."
David . A happy customer.
This box is for our dream home, which probably wonít be done until
early next year. We just wanted to gather some things in advance.
At least we will NEVER have to worry about the safety of our mail
thanks to you and your product. Also, I am so glad to be able to support
an American manufacturer that still builds things in the USA"
"The Fort Knox 'Fortress' mailbox I recently
installed exceeded all expectations. Yes, it was more expensive
than other alternatives, but far surpassed them in quality of
build and finish. I had it installed in a custom brick pillar,
and my professional mason said it was the finest mailbox he
had ever worked with. He wanted to know where I had obtained
it, as he felt other clients, especially commercial clients
and others wanting locking security, would be interested. I
would recommend Fort Knox products to anyone who is tired of
replacing mailboxes and wants one that is secure and will last
