Rated 3 out of 5 by Gerschwiler Pros and cons
At last I have a letter plate large enough for books etc so that TNT UPS etc do not simply leave them outside in the rain. However this is a large opening. The big PLUS feature is the internal metal cover plate restricting view and access from outside. Both internal and external spring loaded flaps are metal. However I was disappointed to find that the external and internal mounting plates are plastic. I would have preferred metal.. In addition when using screws provided the two plastic bosses accommodating the screws simply broke so I had to improvise with alternative fixings. Disappointing. However it is still a better buy than any of the alternatives I have studied. It could have been the best if ALL metal construction (even if a bit more expensive) It is very difficult from online descriptions to determine all materials used.

Once fitted, this product is very good, although the outer flap can remain slightly ajar on occasions. The fitting, however, is not so straightforward. For a 'universal' letter plate there is a lot of unexpected cutting to size, which is not mentioned in the instructions or on the product instructional video, to be found on the internet. Once you work out what to do, though, it is a simple job of slotting the two sides (cut to the correct size) in the aperture and securing them with the screws provided. All in all, though, could be easier.
