The Hyde Park Mailbox is crafted of 14 gauge plate - solid and sturdy but not overly heavy. Designed to be a wall-mount mailbox, with protection from direct rain or snow. We do not recommend this mailbox be mounted on a gate, fence, or post as there are mounting holes in the back which prevent the mailbox from being fully waterproof with direct exposure to the elements.
LOCKING: We offer our Hyde Park Mailbox in NON-LOCKING and LOCKING versions. The Locking option adds a door with a slot under the main top door.
Please allow 2-3 weeks of fabrication time. Upon completion, we will send you a shipping notification and tracking information.
We build and deliver this mailbox in clean raw hot rolled steel. Much like the grain in wood, this dark steel finish comes with some variety of heat marks from the raw steel cooling in the steel mill. Most people let this mailbox develop a handsome rust patina over time. The pictures show it at the tail end of this process as well as the raw steel look as we deliver it. Just like any other outdoor product, these finishes will require maintenance over time.
