Gibraltar Industries DMVKGV04 Wall Mount Locking Mailbox PROS AND CONS
- It’s very large so it holds a lot of mail and magazines.
- Attractive look and design
- Easy installation
- Great construction, should hold up well under weather conditions
- Price is super low, usually can be found under $50 whereas most locking mailboxes (or mailboxes in general) are priced higher, usually $100 and above.
- Lock is mostly for deterrent purposes, don’t rely on it for protection
- The optional “Mail” decal looks slightly cheesey, many owners do not put it on
- Screws not included
While the Gibraltar Industries DMVKGV04 Mailbox is not a heavy duty locking mailbox like those manufactured by Architectural Mailboxes, if you’re looking for a simple locking mailbox that can act as a casual deterrant, is solidly built and well designed, and a great price (usually found under $50), this is a great choice and is often the top selling locking mailbox on online retailer Amazon.
What Buyers Are Saying
“This is a solid, attractive mailbox for a very reasonable price. I have a small house and the mailbox does not loom too large on the wall by my front door.

“It is a very nice looking mail box. Reasonably priced. Would have prefered a more perminant riveted on placard. The security feature is just a deterrant. The whole mailbox would collapse with a good kick. Great for safe neighborhoods mounted by front door. If you are in a high traffic area or high crime area buy something else. I am happy with the purchase…(READ MORE)”
“We puchased this mailbox and have had it up for a few months now. This has a very elegant look to it, can be used with or without the lock in place, and it holds alot of mail. This mailbox enables your mail to be delivered easily without any of it hanging out of your mailbox. Think about that feature alone – that is a good thing. In addition, please Google in “mailboxes” at other retailers, and you may be shocked to see that most mailboxes retail at $175.00 and up. Yes, for a mailbox…(READ MORE)”
