Epoch 7106 MailBoss Curbside Locking Mailbox Product Description
When we were researching locking mailboxes, we had not heard of Epoch Design before. The more we researched them, the more we liked them. The Epoch 7106 MailBoss Curbside Locking Mailbox is a very sturdy mailbox built with quality materials. Price-wise, it is a fair price considering what you are getting.
The MailBoss locking security mailbox is a great defense against the epidemic of mail theft and identity theft. Material wise: made of 12 and 14 gauge galvanized steel. Security-wise: features a patent-pending exclusive anti-pry locking system that is resistant to leveraged entry, and a professional grade tube lock for even more security. Features durable powder-coated finish available in black, white, granite, or bronze.
Epoch 7106 MailBoss Curbside Locking Mailbox PROS AND CONS
- Very easy to install and mount: patented Fast-Trak Mounting Plate allows installation on almost any post in a few minutes (though Epoch Design does sell a matching Mailboss mailpost)
- Locks feel solid: locking access door with commercial grade anti-pick tube lock. Very serious anti-pry mechanism
- Very heavy feeling which adds to the feel that this is one sturdy mailbox that won’t get broken into
- Large capacity, can hold a lot of mail should you go on a trip.
- Inexpensive for this quality of security and materials
- Some reviewers say that the construction itself could have been cleaner
- Larger 10″ by 13″ may hang out the slot
- Shape of hole and box may allow for “fishing” for mail
Many owners call it the “Fort Knox” of mailboxes. There is no doubt that the Epoch 7106 MailBoss Curbside Locking Mailbox feels sturdy and the locking mechanism is top notch. The main complaints are about craftsmanship itself such as magnets falling loose or screws possibly being loose – little things which can be easily fixed. The lower price point does not indicate compromise in security. This is a very good mailbox
