We have a security gate and a post box outside. We are frequently away for a week at a time and standard boxes were insufficient to hold that much post. Getting post held by the post office was inconvenient and expensive. We were unsuccessful in finding a really large and secure post box until we discovered the G2 which easily holds two weeks' post even including a few packages and is very secure as you cannot reach post through the posting tray once it has dropped into the locked box. Excellent design, great capacity and strongly engineered so highly recommended. And an equally good service from the Safe Shop.

I purchased this letter box as I was going to be away a lot and needed to secure my post as well as having an increased capacity. It arrived on time, and was easy to put up. 2 problems, firstly one of the opening arms was not properly welded. I would have sent it back, but it had been a couple of months since I ordered it, to putting it up. The other problem is for the size and weight it doesn't fit that securely to the wall. It fell off after my daughter leaned on it! So I would not recommend this product.

We needed a post box that was able to take both letters and parcels for newly installed iron gates on our driveway. After reading the reviews on the website, we thought this was the ideal product. What we didn't realise was this was not meant for mounting on a gate, it's actually only suppose to be wall mounted. So when we mounted it on the gates, it leaked straight away in the first rain fall. My husband put a bit of silicone on the gap at the back which has fixed it and works a treat! Overall, we are pleased with the postbox and it is now weather proof following the minor modification!

When this arrived it was not well packaged and I was concerned that it might be damaged given the state of the box. This was not the case and the box had arrived safely. On first inspection It did not seem as robust as I had imagined (given the price of the thing) but now installed, I am happy with it. Installation was simple and it seems secure. I used to fish letters out from the old post box when I'd forgotten the key but there is no way I can do that with this one.

In the recent heavy rain, it has proved to be completely waterproof. It takes most normal size parcels and the postman likes it.

The reason for the 3* for build quality is that when you open the box to retrieve post and parcels you need to hold on to the door as there is no restrictor to stop the thing falling right away from you which could potentially damage the box. A small thing that does not take away from my overall satisfaction with the box.

I would recommend this and may well buy another when we move next year.
