Comments about New Mail Alert Ball:
I installed it on my mail box, when the mail arives the ball pops up. Great time saver.I have used mine for over 1 year,I installed another ball by drilling a hole into new ball & screwing it onto the spring(hollow golf ball) then I painted it W/ bright paint. I also have bought 2 more for some of my cousins.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Midrange Shopper
It's a great idea and I wish I could use it, but it can't be attached to my type of mailbox, which is the large Rubbermaid one that does not have the metal opening brackets. It is not a unique or custom-made mailbox; it is carried by all the major hardware stores. The only way to attach this signal balI would be to drill holes in the top of my mailbox, and that wouldn't guarantee that the pop-up would work properly -- and then I'd be stuck with holes in my mailbox. The description should carry a warning that the mailbox must have a metal opener bracket. Bummer. I was looking forward to not hiking to check if the mail had come.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
I love the Mail Sign
By The Carolina Dirt Bag
from Wilmington, NC
I really like the Mail Sign. Our mailbox at work is about 0.1 of a mile from our office and not in a direct line from the office and now we can tell when the mail has come when we get about halfway to the box. No more walks to the box only to see the flag up when we get within arm's length of the box.
Mail Sign - What a Nice Help!
By Mary Lea
from Hot Springs Village, AR
A couple of our neighbors had this device on the mailbox. I wanted one but couldn't find it at any of the hardware stores or stores I checked. I was glad to see it advertised in your catalogue. It has saved me lots of steps to the mailbox when the mail has not arrived. I can easily see the ball (which I painted red) from my kitchen window. This is a simple gadget, but a real help for me.

Mail box ball pop

Saves steps to check if mail has come.
Will last longer, easier to use.
from Greenwood, Indiana
I wanted the earlier model but this one works better and will probably last longer because it doesn't have hinge to get rusty.
