    This sounds like a lawsuit. Our POed neighbor filled his mailbox with concrete. After he cooled down he got rid of it and replaced it with cheap-o plastic one. Said it would be less expensive to buy a new mailbox than a lawyer if some kid got hurt.

    Put a few cans of Great Stuff in the mailbox. Then check the local high school parking lot for a vehicle that is very well insulated. I'm twofertwo.

    I actually know of one person that mounted heavy steel mailbox on a 6" I-Beam and the DOT made home remove it.

    I'll admit. When I was 8 years old. I used to walk down the road and hit the mail boxes with an aluminum bat.

    My dad was driving down the road and spotted me. He caught me in the act. He made me go around to each house and tell them what I did and made me fix what I destroyed.

    I was out there every day after school for a week replacing about 20 mail boxes that my dad bought.

    I also got my butt whooped with his belt. I deserved it too. And never beat a mail box after that.

    I'd do the same thing with my kid, (if I had one) and hope that it would put an end to them smashing the mail boxes. And set them straight.

    Dad's was mounted on an upside down L shaped piece of pipe. the vertical leg of the L was set in the ground 3-4" but it wasn't anchored.
    When something hit it, the box would pivot away from the road. It got hit a few times but hasn't destroyed the mail box.

    Mine's all rusty, beat-up & dented, but hasn't been hit in the 8 years I've lived here. I guess it takes all the fun out of it when it's already trashed.
