Why are Fort Knox Mailboxes so expensive?
All Fort Knox Mailboxes are hand welded in the USA out of 1/4” steel (1/8” for the M1-LT). All hardware used in these mailboxes is first class, no corners cut when it comes to assembly or components.
For the build quality of the mailboxes, our opinion is the prices are reasonable taking into account the work and materials involved.
What are the key differences between the M1-LT and small standard besides the price?
With virtually identical dimensions and storage capacity, the M1-LT is constructed with 1/8” steel while the small standard is made with 1/4” steel.
The M1-LT has been created as a price point product and is the only mailbox in the Fort Knox range that has been created with the thinner 1/8” steel. The M1-LT is still stronger than any average ‘locking mailbox’ on the market and will outlast it as well. If you are after a fair priced high-security locking post mounted mailbox you won’t find much better than the M1-LT
The small standard is ideal for customers who have fear of vandals and mail theft and are looking for a maximum security mail solution.
What is your best selling Fort Knox Mailbox?
Our top seller is the M1-LT which is cost effective yet still secure enough to withstand almost anything vandals will through at it. The M1-LT represents great quality at an excellent price.
The small standard is the second best seller with twice the thickness of steel as the M1-LT
Where are Fort Knox Mailboxes made?
All Fort Knox mailboxes are hand built at Ft Knox headquarters located in Grants Pass, Oregon, USA
Do Fort Knox Mailboxes build wall mount mailboxes?

What abuse will Fort Knox mailboxes hold up against?
Fort Knox mailboxes will take a beating and still come out on top, they have been tested on run in’s with:
NOTE: The M1-LT will not hold up as well as the rest of the 1/4” range (where these tests have been conducted) though it’s still tough!
Do I need to purchase a Fort Knox post to pair with my mailbox?
No, just make sure that the post you use to install your Fort Knox will support the weight of your new mailbox
