I required a replacement post box for a flat which I rent out. The previous occupant did not leave a key and the box was locked.Cost of a locksmith----£80! +new lock. Cost of G2 post box half that, delivered in 3 days, standard size to fit other post boxes in lobby and its new.

There really was no choice . I ordered the new box on line (took 5 mins). I then drilled out the lock in the existing box (2mins). unscrewed the old box --leaving the rawlplugs in the wall. Finally I screwed the new box in to the existing plugs (fittings provided) (2mins)

The service from the safe shop was excellent. The product description was accurate . And my decision to replace a box rather than repair it through a locksmith was vindicated by a saving of over £50.

Finally, the G2 postbox now in position looks good, is big enough to take all sizes of letters, is easy to empty and is secure (2 keys are provided). Any parcels or directories can also be placed on the flat top. My only reservation would be a preference for a sloping top if the box was to be placed outside and there was a need to shed rainwater

This was absolute mistake to buy this product. All the letters get drenched when it rains. More so it is not safe or secure at all. You can simply lift the flap and take the letters out without opening the door. This product is simply wrong in every ways.

Please do not buy this.

Overall good value for money. I'm not surpised at the relatively poor weather resistance because it's in a very exposed postion - not far from the coast and subject to wild weather, including salt-laden wind and heavy Cornish rain. It's starting to show signs of corrosion already but, as I say, this wasn't unexpected at the price - and even stainless steel (which, in my experience, isn't really stainless anyway) would probably would cost a lot more and not be much better).

Easy to fit, reasonably well-made and big enough for the amount if post we get. I would recommend.

I would have preferred the black boxes but these were out of stock so I opted for the silver which looks good.

Key action in the lock is a bit stiff.

Overall value for money.
