MODEL 7000 FRONTLOADING MAILBOXES
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
 

 

 

Model 7000 frontloading boxes are designed to be semi-recessed. The all welded collar extends 4" from the wall. The inset (bin) portion of the box requires a rough opening depth of 10-3/4".

When preparing the rough opening for the inset portion of the boxes make the rough opening 1/2" wider and 1/2" higher than the actual dimensions of the inset.

Boxes may be affixed to the opening by:
    1 - drilling holes in either the side of the bin portion of     the box and screwing the box into the rear of the     rough opening;
    2 - drilling holes in either the side, top or bottom of the     bin portion of the boxes and screwing into side
    frame supports.

Where 2 or more modules are to be fitted together - do not bolt the collars together. This can put misalign the sliding lockbar assembly in each module. Instead use 2 x 3 wooden uprights between the modules and screw the bin portion of each module to the upright. This will assure solid cohesion between the units without affecting the lockbar.
