How To Replace Community Mailbox Doors

Cluster box units (CBUs) and 4C mailboxes are popular choices for residential and commercial properties. That’s because they allow everyone to access their mail at a single convenient location and make it easier for their mail carrier to deliver packages and other mail pieces.

To replace a community mailbox door, follow these steps:

1. Gather a 5/8” and 9/16” wrench, a hammer, a drill, a level, and fasteners.

2. Position the replacement door template in the desired location on the mailbox.

3. Using the appropriate wrench, remove the existing compartment door by loosening the fasteners.

4. Once you’ve removed the old door, align the template with the corresponding holes for the new door.

5. Securely drill holes into the mailbox according to the template.

6. Place the replacement door onto the drilled holes and fasten it securely using the provided fasteners.

7. Ensure the door is level by using a level tool.

For optimal results, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for any additional steps or considerations specific to your community mailbox model. Also, if you aren’t familiar with handling tools, consider contacting a professional to assist with the installation process.
