My mailbox got hit by snowplows every time they ran this winter. I don't dare put much into it. I do have ABS pipe holding it up, with a shaved-down closet flange at the top. But, my secret is that I have a steel pipe running inside of it.
The story behind that is a couple of young girls were walking down the street one night and they grabbed it and broke the ABS and threw it out in the middle of the street. So I put in the steel pipe inside when I put it back together.
Then some kid was out there trying to rip it out one night. I opened the window and asked if he wanted to stop trying to rip out my mailbox. "Not really," he said. And he went off down the street trying to damage other mailboxes as he went.
Mind you, this is like two incidents, not counting the snowplows, in about 30 years.
