I did my best to find loose screws, poor alignment, design flaws etc. The mail slot upper and lower guards that prevent mail theft are sturdy and positioned well but could be flexed. If you pushed hard enough, you might be able to deflect these guards enough to get a medium sized hand into the mail area (but you might get stuck too). I used J-B Weld 31310 Clear All-Purpose RTV Silicone Sealant and Adhesive - 3 oz. to glue down the left and right ends to anchor them a little better. The locks are not very precise so a little jiggling is sometimes required to get them to turn, but may get better as the locks are used. The plastic encased magnet that secures the top front door is not up to par with the rest of the mailbox, so i replaced it with a rare earth magnet, a 4-40 countersunk screw, nut, a couple of washers and some thread locker.
It is made with rustproof aluminum except for the front upper door magnet/plate, front upper door handle screws, 6 rivets facing out on the front doors, 3 rivets facing out on the back door, flag stops and the lock lever/clip/screw (lock body appears to be non-magnetic stainless?). Everything that is magnetic has a nice thick powder coat of paint except for the interior lock hardware.
I think the mailbox would be fine for most people just the way it comes, but I like like to overthink and overdo everything.
I also ordered the Salsbury Industries 4365SLV Pedestal Bolt Mounted which comes with the hardware to mount the mailbox to the pedestal. I will pour a small slab with embedded bolts matching the pattern of the lower flange of the pedestal.

Most of the other mailboxes in our neighborhood are black and the paint is starting to look faded. I picked the silver color as our mailboxes are in the sun most of the day. The box stays cooler this way. I think the paint will last longer too because it will stay cooler. Also, if we happen to get a chocolate bar in the mail, it won't melt so quickly. I especially appreciated that the silver was ~40% cheaper than the black when I made the purchase.
Opening from the back was a requirement for us and there are not very many mailboxes that do this. We live on a busy road and I am very happy to be off the road when opening the mailbox.
Others mention the lock as a weakness and I am inclined to believe that the lock won't last as long as the box will. I figure I'll talk to a locksmith when that time comes and get a replacement lock that has a combination instead of a key. I looked and looked for this option and it was not yet available at prices that I was willing to pay.
Mounting this box was difficult as we mounted it on an existing brick column. Our solution was to use bolts set in epoxy and cement to secure the box. The directions and the website did not prove helpful, but we had a smart contractor figure this out for us. The directions would work best if one purchased the mounting pole from the manufacturer and we did not want to do this.
Even though the lock and mounting are causes for concern, we are very pleased with the end result. I looked and looked for the best solution available and I think I found it.
With the JBweld on the head they cant get the screw diver to grab the screw head.
