Cons

  • Not For All Mailboxes

  • Rural Mailbox

Easy to please, but disappointed in this

Comments about New Mail Alert Ball:

I've had a yellow mailbox FLAG for years and loved it. My rural box is across the road and the house is set back from the street. The flag saved me steps and time almost daily. I was dependant on it. It finally broke and I searched for a replacement with no success. Finally gave the little ball on a spring a try. I'm so disappointed! It's barely visible from my window and then, often, I can't tell what position it's in. Besides that my son-in-law had to drill new holes in the mailbox to install it. It would have been nice if they had just matched up.

Bottom Line

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Insufficient information in catalog

Comments about New Mail Alert Ball:

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.

Cons

  • Not For All Mailbox Types
Bottom Line

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love the Mail Sign

Comments about New Mail Alert Ball:

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.

Pros

  • Durable
  • Easy to see
  • Easy To Use
  • Lightweight

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Mail Sign - What a Nice Help!

Comments about New Mail Alert Ball:

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 Sign

Comments about New Mail Alert Ball:

I purchased one of these about 10 years ago and it's till out there on the mailbox and still working. I thought I'd be safe and purchase a back-up of it. I love that it saves me wasted trips down the long driveway to the mailbox plus it can so easily be seen when the mail has come. This winter was brutal, this saved me from unnecessary trips on the ice and snow.
