This will save me from walking back & forth to mailbox as our postal carrier comes different times every day
Shirley H on Jan 8, 2018
I picked the Mail Box Alert Ball because we live in a rural area and it saves people from walking to the mailbox a number of times to check and see if the mail has gone.
Cathy M on Dec 14, 2017
No longer have to make several trips to the mailbox. My last one lasted 15 yrs. Great invention!

Jeff B on Jul 13, 2017
It saves many unnecessary tips to the mailbox to check on the mail delivery.
Edward M on Jul 7, 2017

only place could find item.
o l on Apr 30, 2017
This is convenient as I know when my mail man has left me some mail
EDITH M. E on Apr 28, 2017
It appears to be an inexpensive alert system to let you know when your mail has arrived. I like the fact that it is not a wireless electronic device that seem to vary on performance based on mailbox material and distance to your house.This is a basic, non-electronic, simple device.
B O on Apr 12, 2017
This is for my parents who would like to avoid unnecessary trips to the mailbox, only to find that the mail has not been delivered yet
Sherry J on Mar 19, 2017
It saves me having to go out in cold and rain to check the mail.
Jeannie R on Mar 18, 2017
For my 84 old father
Dale n on Mar 17, 2017
My mailbox is about 50 feet from the house & I live on a hill so to make it easy, I bought one to keep from going to the mailbox when it had not ran or because I did not get any mail. Only having 1 and a half foot that means a lot for me.
Ann M on Mar 3, 2017
I did not order this
CLARANN M on Feb 11, 2017
Handy & bought for elderly parents yrs. Ago.

I wanted this item for a 94 year old vet so he would'nt have to go numerous times to the mail box uneventful.
Reita B on Dec 4, 2016
It's hard for Dad to go back and forth to the mailbox. Now he can just look to see if the mailman has been there!
Denise B on Nov 14, 2016

lorna c on Jul 22, 2015
I've had one on my mailbox for a long time and it is getting old. I think it is about ready to go flying off the mailbox. I did a google search for mailbox indicator and this website came up with the exact item I currently own. You would not believe how difficult they are to find! They're extremely useful as I can just look out my front door and see if the mail has arrived. I love it!
Donald K on Jul 3, 2015
To know when the mailman came on a rural road!!!
ELIZABETH V on Jun 28, 2015
This is my second one. Pops up when the mailman opens the mailbox, and is easily seen from the house.
Gerald C on Jun 16, 2015
For my sister-in-law that lives off the hwy.She leaves her door down ,and when she has mail the postman will close it. My husband ,and I thought this would be better for her.

How does it mount on plastic mail box ?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There are bolts & nuts to fasten the alert in the holes you have to drill in the mail box. This is the first time I have used this type as I ones I used before were a flag that flipped up when the mailman opened the box. I am a 89 yr old widow that lives alone and I would be lost with out my alert; now I know I have mail, before I made many trips to the box but no mail.
can I buy just the ball?
Bud M on Apr 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. No, we do not sell the ball separately. We hope this information will be of help to you.
