Solar Group DVKPBZ00 Large Vertical Style Lockable Wall Mount Mailbox Product Description
If you are reading some of our other reviews of Solar Group Mailboxes you may think we are sounding like a broken record. Yes, this mailbox is just about identical to the Solar Group DVK00000 and Solar Group DVKW0000 except for appearance. Whereas the other two are either all black (Solar Group DVK00000) or all white (Solar Group DVKW0000), the Solar Group DVKPBZ00 Locking Mailbox has a nice bronze finish with satin nickel lid.
It is a simple and basic wall mount residential locking mailbox that does what it’s supposed to do: take your mail and secure it. Nice heavy-duty galvanized steel construction to weather the elements. Large enough size to lay magazines flat. Decorative Emblem (which most owners do not use). Durable bronze powder coat finish. Features concealed cam lock for security, which should be enough to deter the casual thief.
Solar Group DVKPBZ00 Locking Mailbox PROS AND CONS
- Simple elegant design with a great protective finish
- Inexpensive!! This line from Solar Group is about half the price point of most locking mailboxes
- Heavy duty constructions stands against the elements well
- Easy to install
- The emblem is a bit cheesy. It also does not come attached but is stuck on with adhesive which adds to the “cheesiness”. Fortunately, like most owners, you can just choose to toss the emblem.
- The lock itself does not feel super durable. Again, good for casual deterrant.
- Mounting screws not included
The Solar Group DVKPBZ00 Locking Mailbox is a very basic no-frills locking residential mailbox. Fantastic price – tradeoff is the lock which will deter casual thieves. In the end, if your budget doesn’t allow a more serious lock on the mailbox, and you can live with a basic lock, this is a attractive mailbox and is a great deal for the price.
