Lynn in Apple Valley, CA has her locking mailbox pried open regularly, so she contacted us about getting a more secure mailbox. She wrote:
“Our current mailbox is an Oasis Jr that gets pried open every 2 weeks. The door is bent and tweaked and I have to re-bend the lock to get the door to shut completely. I am tired of worrying if my box will get broken into again tonight. Can’t wait for my Mail Boss to ease my mind. Thanks Mail Boss”
Here are the photos she shared of her burglarized Oasis Jr mailbox:
The Oasis Jr locking mailbox by Architectural Mailboxes can be pried open with a screwdriver in seconds. Of course, no mailbox is theft proof, but the #BetterByBoss mailbox offer exists to help victims of mailbox burglary replace a locking mailbox that has been pried open with locking mailbox that is more difficult to pry open: a curbside mailbox by Mail Boss.
With Lynn’s history of having her mailbox repeatedly broken into, we recommended the Mail Boss Curbside. It is one of our toughest mailboxes, made of 12- and 14-gauge FeZn steel and weighing 40 lbs. Like all Mail Boss mailboxes, it includes the patented anti-pry latch locking system which helps prevent leveraged entry.
