Solar Group DVK00000 Vertical Style Wall Mount Locking Mailbox Product Description
Solar Group mailboxes (now owned by Gibraltar mailboxes) has been a top name in mailbox manufacturing for over half a century. The Solar Group DVK00000 Wall Mount Locking Mailbox is a simple no-frills wall mount residential locking mailbox that does what it’s supposed to do: take your mail and magazines and secure it.
The “Designer” (as it is called) lockable residential wall mount mailbox is constructed from heavy-duty galvanized steel. It has a concealed cam lock with two keys for convenience. Large enough to hold magazines laying flat. Includes bold decorative emblem and features a durable powder coat finish.
Solar Group DVK00000 Wall Mount Locking Mailbox PROS AND CONS
- Small form factor but large capacity
- Simple elegant design with a great protective finish
- While the lock is not sturdy, it can function as basic deterrent
- Maybe our personal preference – the emblem, while containing nice sturdy materials, looks a little cheesy
- The mail emblem does NOT come attached which is also a bit “cheesy” for feeling like such a nice quality mailbox, but as a good thing that means you also don’t need to use it.
- The lock itself does not feel durable.
The Solar Group DVK00000 Wall Mount Locking Mailbox is a very basic no-frills locking residential mailbox. It is very inexpensive, and the trade-off is the security is mostly superficial. While the box itself feels of fine quality, the lock is reported to not be too sturdy – especially when compared to other wall mount locking mailboxes which cost more. In the end, if your budget doesn’t allow an upscale residential locking mailbox, and you can live with a basic lock, then this is for you.
