Initially we were very happy with the letter box however after some weeks in use it is affected by rain and is showing a spotted corroded appearance which I did not expect from stainless steel. I will monitor the situation but cannot see that it will improve and expect to be returning the box to you. If useful I could send a photo of the current appearance.

Pros: Well built (not flimsy and tinny),hasn't let water in.

Good capacity. Was very easy to fit.

Cons: A fairly slim hand can retrieve mail without unlocking.

Why only one key?

(..our posty keeps leaving the lid open - you just can't win!!!)

Great design and looks perfect. Rusts, keys jam and product doesn't really work as a letter box!

Excellent and elegant design. I bought this as part of an upgrade to the interior and exterior design of an office here in Portugal - it is unlike anything we can get here and many people have commented that they like it. Stainlesss steel means that it will be long lasting too.

Cons: The lock is really hard to open with the key so we have to pull down the front flap to get our mail. This product is badly made and not secure at all.

I bought this particular post box for its sleek, curved appearance. I wasn't disappointed, as it looked just as good in reality. Having a new contemporary built house, I needed a post box that would not be an eyesore, but would be fit with the look of the build. It certainly ticks the box for that. I found the installation of the box straight forward, and am happy with the storage space. Easy to open with the key making the front of the box to open and drop down, allowing full access to your post. Secure enough from prying fingers (I've tried!), and leaves you content in the knowledge your post is safe and secure. Go get one!

Pros: Stylish and sleek. Great in black Cons: The lock and key is quite poor. The only thing really that I can find fault with. Constantly having to spray with WD40. Dread to think what it might be like in severe temperatures.

The screws have already started to go rusty and frequently have trouble opening the post box- lock can be very stiff and tricky to open.

Really elegant stainless steel post box. Aesthetically much better than everything else on the market. Love it!

Opening door is a bit flimsy and consequently not a brilliant fit. (Lets rain in if there is a tail wind!)

Oh yes; lovely stainless steel body with poor quality steel rivets so they keep rusting up - really!

This product was really good value for money - easy to use - easy to operate and wipe down to show off its contemporary modern design - letters are always very well protected from the weather elements - would strongly recommend this product to enhance the look of any building whether new build or character property - key opening makes u feel secure that your post remains confidential to you and your family - and that brings peace of mind whilst u r away from the property - always looks the part and enhances the look of your home

I found the front flat rather flimsy and the security key tiny to use with arthritic fingers. It accommodates a lot but not sure whether the stainless steel is going to weather well in years to come.

Looks great and avoids the need to damage the look of the front door with a post box slot.

Possibly down to how I have attached it to the wall but the back of the flap does scrape against the wall when opening and closing.

GOOD CAPACITY & LARGE OPENING FOR MAGAZINES.

UNOBTRUSIVE GOOD APPEARANCE.

LARGE OPENING MEANS ITEMS COULD BE FISHED OUT. THUS MOUNTED WITH OPENING AT EYE LEVEL OF 5FT 10" HEIGHT PERSON TO DISCOURAGE ANYONE PEEPING IN.

APPEARS THAT IT WOULD BE RELATIVELY EASY TO PRISE OPEN.

WOULD NOT RECOMMEND ITS USE ANYWHERE WHERE THEFT IS A PROBLEM

Looks nice but flimsy build quality.

Open seam down left hand side lets water in

Has to be spaced off when fitting to a wall to allow hinge on lid to open
