Distinctive is the best way to describe the shape and styling of the Bristol top-mounted post. This round mailbox post features a decorative cuff that fits over the bottom of the post to give it an aura of elegance. The post is manufactured from extruded aluminum for strength and low maintenance, while a long-lasting powder-coated black finish helps it withstand the elements and retain its attractiveness. No anchor is required, as this post is designed for in-ground installation and intended to be set in concrete. The Bristol post can accommodate a variety of standard and large size mailboxes ranging from lightweight to heavy-duty. Its unique mounting bracket is designed to fit mailboxes with mounting holes located either on the sides or underneath.
