How to Install a Wall-Mounted Letterbox

Wall-mounted letterboxes keep your home more secure than a traditional door letterbox, and prevent your post being stolen or damaged. And they're much easier to install than you'd think. 

The easiest way to fit a letterbox on a wall is with FIX-PRO® Outdoor Mounting Tape. This strong, durable alternative to nails and screws doesn't involve any drilling and works on brick, wood, metal, tile, stone and glass. 

Read on to find out how to fit your letterbox quickly and securely in less than 10 minutes!

Materials

How to fit a letterbox on a brick wall

1. Wipe the surface

Start by wiping the back of the letterbox with a clean, damp cloth to remove any dust or dirt. 

2. Cut strips of mounting tape

Next, cut strips of FIX-PRO® Outdoor Mounting Tape. For the strongest hold, we'd recommend sticking a strip of mounting tape along each edge of the letterbox.

3. Attach mounting tape to the back of the letterbox

Next, stick the mounting tape to the back of the letterbox and press it down firmly. We'd recommend waiting an hour or so for the adhesive to bond with the metal letterbox before you attach it to brick.

5. Press firmly against the wall to secure

Last but not least, press the letterbox firmly against the wall to secure it in place. We'd recommend using a spirit level at this stage, just before you fix the letterbox in place, to make sure it's straight.
