Architectural Mailboxes Oasis Locking Mailbox Product Description
There is a reason that Architectural Mailboxes is the top name in residential security mailboxes: they repeatedly create high quality durable mailboxes. The Architectural Mailboxes Oasis Locking Mailbox is no different – this is a well-built mailbox. Suitable for installation into a pilaster, column or wall.
The Oasis Locking Mailboxis a great choice for mail and small parcel security in residential and commercial applications.

Architectural Mailboxes Oasis Locking Mailbox PROS AND CONS
- Looks heavily built – at least two owner/reviewers have said their mailbox has survived car crashes.
- Features two part mailbox: mail falls to bottom and retrieved from bottom with key
- Good engineering of material – attention to detail and clean construction
- Architectural Mailboxes makes a matching Oasis in ground post
- While advertised as being suitable for installation into a pilaster, column or wall, most customers use as a mount on in-ground post. Honestly it seems very heavy to be mounted to a wall.
- Remember to set the in-ground post in concrete
- Little room to leave outgoing mail
- The lock itself is not as secure as it should be for a mailbox of this price
No one can doubt the solid materials and clean design of the Architectural Mailboxes Oasis Locking Mailbox. The security with the lock leaves something to be desired. If your worry is security, we suggest you first check the Epoch Mailboss Locking Mailbox which is almost as sturdy and features some serious security locking mechanisms. If your worry is protection against the “elements” (natural or otherwise), then this mailbox is one you should consider.
What Buyers Are Saying
“Nice sturdy mailbox. We ordered both the mailbox and the post and direct-buried the post. Some boxes won’t fit into the hopper, so this is an occasional issue. Overall, we are happy with our choice. 5 months later: Our brillant neighbor has run into our mailbox at least 3 times. So far we’ve only had to bend the mailbox back once (we bent the metal piece back and there is no rust showing so far). She pays for damage each time, so we’ll be able to buy a new one when she finally creams the box. You should see her car! (READ MORE)”
“This is a nice mailbox but I have found that I can retrieve the mail through the drop slot. This is a handy feature if I go out to the box without the key. I would suggest getting the larger model if you think someone with thin arms might take the time to go through the minor contortions needed to reach inside…(READ MORE)”
“I have had this mailbox installed for 2 1/2 years now. It works flawlessly. I’m frequently away from home for weeks at a time and this mailbox ensures that my mail is safe and secure. The metal is heavy gauge…no corrosion at all since installation and no leaking inside the box. I purchased the Oasis mounting post and it was easy to install and very sturdy. Highly recommended all around…(READ MORE)”
