A mailbox’s advantage: It rotates

Outdoor living company Eye Level is promoting its ReFlex Rotating Mailbox Mount as a defense against snow plows, vandals and other mailbox safety concerns.

With the ability to rotate 360 degrees, with four pressure release points that keep it in position, the ReFlex can avoid damage by rotating out of harm’s way. A rotating mailbox also allows a homeowner to stay arms length from busy roads when retrieving the mail.

According to the Eye Level Corp. of Trumbull, Connecticut, the product has high-tech maintenance-free materials, such as powder-coated steel platform, and stainless steel springs and ball bearings. The ReFlex works for horizontal-mount or post-mount mailbox option. It carries an MSRP of $39.
