Comments about New Mail Alert Ball:
Just what we needed so we don't have to run all the way to the mailbox. Our mailbox is quite a distance from the house and this is perfect for us.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

easy to install-and it works
I love the idea, but it doesn't fit my mailbox.
It is useless because it doesn't fit my mailbox.

Install requires additional hardware!
from Olney, Maryland
The newer, standard rural mailbox does not have the two top metal brackets to open and close the door. As a result additional hardware is required on many rural mailboxes for this item to function as advertised.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Easy to please, but disappointed in this
from Palmyra, VA
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.
We use this alert flag on our snail mail boxreally like it,but so do the mockingbirds..they soon destroy the ball.
mail alert ball
from Muhlenberg Co., Ky
I love this. No more trips out in bad weather. don't mind when weather is good, but when weather is bad and you need your mail when expecting something this is a time saver and weather protector saver. I am a female and had no problem putting it on. Debbie
very simple to install.Works perfect.

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.
