If you worry that your mail could be stolen from your outdoors mailbox, you need to switch from the standard mailbox to the SecureLogic Mail Vault Locking Mailbox. The mailbox comes with a color-matched mounting pole, and the bolts, screws, and other hardware you need to install it. The box has a chute so the delivery person can drop envelopes, magazines, and even small packages into the locked box. The secure box is opened by a battery-powered keypad, so no keys are necessary, and the code can be up to 8 characters for extra security (user programmed and changeable at any time). It measures 12.375″ x 18″ x 21″, so it can handle a couple of days if you’re gone for a long weekend. The Mail Vault is available in black, white, or tan from SmartHome for $249.00.
