mail alert ball
I love this. No more trips out in bad weather. don't mind when weather is good, but when weather is bad and you need your mail when expecting something this is a time saver and weather protector saver. I am a female and had no problem putting it on. Debbie

Great to see if you have mail from a distance
We would always walk to the mailbox at work and never know if the mail was there. This can be seen from inside the office so it saves a lot of wasted time. Great product.

very simple to install.Works perfect.
I installed it on my mail box, when the mail arives the ball pops up. Great time saver.I have used mine for over 1 year,I installed another ball by drilling a hole into new ball & screwing it onto the spring(hollow golf ball) then I painted it W/ bright paint. I also have bought 2 more for some of my cousins.

Mail Sign - What a Nice Help!
A couple of our neighbors had this device on the mailbox. I wanted one but couldn't find it at any of the hardware stores or stores I checked. I was glad to see it advertised in your catalogue. It has saved me lots of steps to the mailbox when the mail has not arrived. I can easily see the ball (which I painted red) from my kitchen window. This is a simple gadget, but a real help for me.

This little yellow ball tells me when the mail has been delivered. Saves many usless trips across a very dangerous highway to do the "mail check". I have recommended this to a friend. She didn't know this little trick even existed. She's getting one for herself and one for her son.

Just what we needed so we don't have to run all the way to the mailbox. Our mailbox is quite a distance from the house and this is perfect for us.

Mail comes here anytime between dawn and dark! Post Office is just a mile away. They have trouble getting every carrier to show up on the same day.
William K on Aug 13, 2019
We have a long driveway and our mailbox is across a busy road, it will be nice being able to visually see that the mail carrier has left mail for us so we don’t have to make a trip to the mailbox to find out that either we didn’t get mail or the carrier hasn’t delivered it yet.

I have quite a ways to walk to my mailbox. I love to walk but I don't always feel like it. So I thought this might save me some unnecessary steps when I am not feeling my best and/or when the weather is not the best.

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!
Barbara H on Dec 11, 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!

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!

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.
