Rated 3 out of 5 Anne K. January 2, 2018 - Verified Buyer The mailbox is a perfect sized of a wonderful exterior design. The problem lies with the plastic weatherproofing component which is inside of the lid and made to keep rain from getting into the mailbox. I think it probably work fine except our mail box is in a large porch with a ceiling so rain isn’t the problem. When it got so hot this summer the plastic component expanded and made it impossible to open the mailbox! I finally had to take it apart and cut part of the plastic off so that it could still protect the interior from blowing wind/rain/snow (from the NW). So something needs to happen to make that piece of plastic more functional – or to use another substance to make the protective flap!
