For years, the standard postal mailbox reigned supreme, dragging an antique 1850s design right up through the 20th and into the 21st century. But as technology advances, internet shopping has ushered in an era of larger packages that can't fit in these breadbox-sized receptacles. Time has also brought about a rise in mail theft that is practically epidemic. Together, these factors seem to suggest that it's time for a new mailbox design that will meet the needs of today.

The standard mailbox design has served its users well for over a hundred years, causing many people to exclaim that, since it isn't broken, it doesn't need fixing. The truth of the matter, however, is that mail theft is now a larger problem in the United States than it has ever been before. With the consequences of this kind of theft becoming more and more dire--and including things like full-scale identity theft--an overhaul of the traditional mailbox looks inevitable, and even desirable.

Postal theft is a huge problem in the United States. Its rise has caused numerous home and business owners to find money, credit cards, and even their personal identities stolen through the misuse of personal documents. The risks are high; consequently, people have started going to drastic lengths to prevent their mail from being stolen. Unfortunately, many of these measures are expensive and time consuming.

The CurbVault is the most effective theft-proof mailboxes. Its 1/8-inch steel plating is nearly indestructible, guaranteeing that the personal information contained within won't get into the wrong hands. The CurbVault is built in two layers. The first of these is smaller, and can be easily accessed by anyone: this is the outgoing mail slot. The second, however, employs a drop box mechanism to allow mail to enter, but it makes unlawful retrieval of this mail very difficult indeed. The only easy way to get the mail out of the CurbVault's 3,200 square inch interior shaft is to use the special rear-lock door. The CurbVault comes in a variety of colors and can be installed wherever one might put a regular mailbox. It is designed to includes features such as rain channels, a mildew-resistant exterior, and rust-resistant hinges. Installation is fast and easy; it doesn't require a concrete base to be secure.
