  • Dimensions  The vertical post of the Handy Post measures 4" x 4" x 54". The horizontal arm measures 5" x 5" x 24" and can be secured at any height below 54".

  • Best uses  The Handy Post excels as a mailbox post or as a signpost. And if you want to hang a sign on your Handy Post mailbox post, that can be done, too. 

  • Mailbox post  There is 18" of length and 5" of width on the Handy Post arm on which to mount a mailbox. Small and medium-sized mailboxes look best on a Handy Post. If you prefer, you can leave the internal cap out of the horizontal arm and use the arm as a newspaper receptacle, beneath your mailbox. 

  • Signpost  If you choose to hang a sign on your Handy Post, you can hang it from the arm at any height under 54". The arm will accommodate signs up to 18" wide. A Handy Post is also an excellent place to secure a planter or a bird feeder in your yard.   

  • Finial  All Handy Posts come with a 4" internal cap at the top of the post. You can easily replace that cap with a finial of your choice. You may find a variety of 4" finial caps at home improvement stores. We sell a traditional, white vinyl, Gothic Cap finial.    

  • Installation  If your current mailbox or signpost is secured to a wooden 4x4 post, you can either modify your post or use it as-is to install the Handy Post over it. For the details of how this is done, see the Handy Post installation instructions (PDF).    

  • Warranty  All Handy Posts come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Click this link to see the Cook Products Warranty (PDF).
