That may be, but when my mailbox was taken off by a baseball bat, I put a
4x6 into a couple of feet of concrete and lag bolted two mailboxes on top of

of concrete between the two. They tried the 'new' mailbox some time later
and I heard the WHACK, then several expletives. That was nearly 20 years
ago and no one has even tried since.
