The Letterblox, a unique security solution

Constructed from solid steel the Letterblox is a unique solution to help prevent vacant properties from a malicious attack. Secured in place by internally accessed hand wheels and requiring no tools or fixings for installation, the Letterblox is designed for temporary use to fit most letterboxes and not damage the door or inside walls of a property. It is re-usable so can be used again and again.

Discreet, secure and re-usable the device is designed for temporary use to fit most standard letter boxes and bearing in mind most insurance companies require letter boxes to be sealed whilst the property is un-occupied, failure to do so may invalidate your insurance policy”.
