Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic value Bought to replace our flimsy (broken!) letter plate on our new build door. Very easy to fit (took 2 minutes!) and I feel it's very good value for money.

draft/insulation

What is the internal finish? - does it have a flap or just brushes. my old letter box lets in a nasty draft through brushes and I am looking for a letter box with a flap both sides.
Asked by: Chris24
Hello Chris24. The sleeved letter plate has a flap on the outside and internally it has a brushed section and a flap. Thank you for using Q&A.

Letter box sleeves seem to long for thickness of door panel . Would need to cut sleeves and screw sleeves as well, or can you get different thickness of lettterbox

Asked by: cbear
Hi Cbear, the sleeve would need to be trimmed to the correct depth to fit in your door if it is too thick. But there are different styles of boxes that have different sleeve depths. Thank you for using Q and A.

how do I fit the sleeved letter plate - instructions not supplied!

there are 2 screws in 2 different sizes, which ones do I use where? Is the part with the brush on for the inside or the outside of the door? any help will be appreciated, I am a woman without a clue what to do!
Asked by: flower44
The 2 different length set of screws are to accommodate different door thicknesses. The inside and outside letter plates are sleeved and telescopic allowing for a door thickness range of 37mm min. up to 78mm max. (you could go wider but then there would be a gap between the 2 halves and your mail could snag or even worse disappear inside the door if hollow PVCu door). Select the screws which best match your door. If needs be the longer ones have 2 'waisted' sections allowing you to cut these shorter with a hacksaw or bolt cutters (make sure the screws threads are not damaged before screwing in to the bush) The half with the double brush strips goes on the inside of the door. A simple guide to installing would be as follows: Tools required: a. Jigsaw or hand/padsaw b. Ruler/tape measure c. Pencil d. Drill e. 8mm dia drill bit f. optional - hacksaw or bolt cutters if you need to shorten the longer waisted screws. 1. Mark the centre line of the door. 2. Mark out for the aperture required 262mm x 42mm check this against the larger of the 2 sleeved letter plates before cutting (remember the old adage - 'measure twice, cut once', to avoid irreversible mistakes!) 3. Drill starter holes in the four corners. 4. Cut out the aperture using a jigsaw or padsaw and clean up the hole to ensure the sleeves pass through. Protect the surface of the door during cutting if needs be e.g. use masking tape. 5. Mark out for the 2 No. holes for the fixing bushes at approx. 280mm centres, hold the outer plate in place and mark the position of the bushes on the door. (note: if preferred you could cut a slotted opening from the main aperture to go round the bushes, but I prefer the drilled holes as easier to do and holds the letter plate in position better). 6. Drill a min. 8mm diameter hole right through the door to suit the 2 No. bush positions 7. Fit the outer plate into position. 8. Fit the inner plate (with the brushes) into position, ensuring the gasket is in place and flat. 9. Open the inner flap, insert the suitable length screw through the centre hole and screw this into the bush on the outer half, repeat for the other side and tighten both screws. 10. Job done - easy and with minimal DIY skills and tools!

What is the distance between fixing bolt centres please?

I'm seeking to replace one which looks the same and has 270mm centres. Thanks
Asked by: CliffW
Further to my earlier answer and having checked/measured back at home: Distance between hole centres is 275mm As suggested previously, you may be able to get this to fit your existing holes (on your 270mm centres), or possibly if you widen the holes it should just about go. Remembering that this item uses steel through bushes so you will need 2 No. 8mm dia. holes right through the door, to take the bush from the outside and the machine screw through from the inside.

Can you please confirm the sleeve dimensions of the letterbox

Asked by: Anonymous
Here's a bit more info having got home and measured it: The opening required in the door would be a minimum of 262mm wide x 42mm high, to suit the larger of the 2 telescopic sleeves. The internal sleeve dimension (i.e. the maximum size package that will pass through) is as the product description (255 x 37mm). The telescopic sleeve can accommodate a door thickness between: 37mm min. with both halves fully together 78mm max. with both halves just engaged by 1-2mm. You could go wider but risk your post getting snagged on the sleeve edges or disappearing inside the door if hollow PVC type! There are 2 alternative length screws to accommodate different door widths and the longer of these are 'waisted' in 2 places to allow them to be cut shorter with a hacksaw or bolt cutters if needs be. You will also require 2 No. 8mm holes on 280mm centres approx. (please check against your outer half of the letter plate) for the screws/bushes to pass through the door.
