What prevents the mailbox from getting dented or crushed by the snowplow? If the snowplow is moving at a high rate of speed, it is actually the snow flying off the plow blade that contacts the mailbox. This force causes the arm to swing the mailbox out of the way.

Is the MailSwing difficult to install? MainelyMetals’ MailSwing is very simple to install with just a few common hand tools. Easy to follow instructions are included with all orders.

Will my current mailbox fit on my new MailSwing? Most "Postal Approved" mailboxes have mounting holes along the bottom of each side. The MailSwing  comes equipped with adjustable mounting brackets designed to fit these regardless of the mailbox size. Most designer or specialty mailboxes also mount in this fashion. If you are unsure about your particular mailbox, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.

What is the length of the MailSwing? The MailSwing can be adjusted from 43" to 55". If this size doesn't work for you, contact us and we can prepare a custom order for you.

What is the length of  the galvanized post that comes with the MailSwing Package? The galvanized post that is included with the MailSwing package is 8' in length. Set the post two to three feet in the ground.  

What type of post do you recommend using? We prefer to use our galvanized steel posts simply because it makes adjusting the height of the mailbox easier. You may need to raise or lower your mailbox when your mail carrier changes vehicles. MainelyMetals’ posts allow you to easily loosen two U-bolts (included) which hold the MailSwing to the post and then simply slide the whole arm/mailbox assembly up or down. The only tool required is one 1/2 inch wrench. A wooden or granite post will work just as well; however, it will require drilling a set of holes in the post to set the mounting bolts or screws.

Can I mount a MailSwing  to my existing post? The MailSwing can be mounted to virtually any post. However, the post needs to be between 44 and 60 inches back from the desired mailbox location in order to give the snowplow driver more room. If your existing post is too close to the road to allow for this, you can move it or custom order a shorter arm.
