Ted O on Dec 13, 2016
Live on a dirt road and the mailbox is 1/2 mile from house. This way I can see if mail has been delivered and my husband does not have to stop if I already got the mail.
DEBORAH G on Dec 8, 2016
Have a country mailbox and was tired of trekking out to get mail before it arrived. This could be better as the mailbox door now opens in a strong wind or when a bird lands on it.

I'm hoping this will be helpful thru the winter since our mailbox is quite far from the house and there have been times when we've faced the bitter cold only to find out that the mail carrier hasn't made it to our house yet.

susan J on Jun 10, 2017
Is the spring (to which the ball is attached) likely to rust, or is it made of stainless steel or galvanized steel that won't rust? Thanks, in advance, to all who respond.
Bill O on Nov 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We have had our Alert Mail for awhile now, and it has never rusted at all. So it must be of stainless steel. I worry about the plastic braking that holds the ball down. But so far so good and I really like it a lot. Our mailbox is about a block away and I can still see the yellow ball when it is up in the air that far away.
