Postal: Mailboxes or collection boxes that are for postal use are prepped for the Postal Master Lock. This lock is only available to the Post Office and allows your mail carrier to collect or distribute mail. Multi-tenant commercial mailboxes that require a USPS Postal Master Lock have a master door that allows your mail carrier to open one main door of the mailbox and distribute the mail to all your tenants at one time. Collection boxes that use a USPS Postal Master lock have a slot for you to drop off your outgoing mail for your mail carrier to pick up later.Private: Commercial mailboxes that have a private lock can only be accessed by the owner of the box. Multi-tenant mailboxes for private distribution are most often used in offices or universities when the post office is not going to be accessing the mailboxes directly.
In October 2006 USPS standard mailbox regulations for multi-tenant mailboxes were changed and must meet the security and configuration requirements of USPS STD-4C regulations. Some commercial mailboxes that are 4B+ compliant may be considered USPS approved if they are replacing existing mailboxes in an existing wall opening that will not be changed during renovations. We recommend getting postal approval for any 4B+ compliant commercial mailboxes before placing your order.
This mailbox FAQ can only provide general information. When products are for USPS access, contact your local post office regarding local approval and installation requirements before purchasing any commercial mailbox product. Mailboxes such as the USPS 4C STD Horizontal Mailboxes and the CBU Pedestal Mailboxes meet current postal specifications regarding security and configurations. Other commercial mailboxes that are 4B+ compliant may be used for postal distribution pending approval from your local post office.
The Postal Master Lock is only available to the post office. You will need to contact your local post office regarding the installation of the master lock in your new commercial mailbox.
