Protect Mail-Order Gadgets with a Drop-Style Mailbox

Image you're waiting all week for your new 32GB memory card to show in the mail. As the "expected delivery date" whooshes by, you're wondering if maybe one of your sneaky neighbors or their sneaky children swiped your $130 envelope. If only you had a locking mailbox big enough to accept nearly any tech-filled package!

To find the best deals on sometimes expensive home tech, we comparison shop online. Often, there's a deal to be had at NewEgg.com that, even with shipping, beats our local big-box price. But ordering online means that your new digital camera waits sitting at your front door, waiting for a curious soul to swipe it.

Yes, stealing mail is a felony, but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

Protect yourself with a drop-box-style personal mailbox that's big enough to accept gadget-sized packages. The Oasis Collection from Architectural Mailboxes is designed for exactly this scenario.

The Oasis Collection offers security and extra capacity for residential, commercial municipal applications in a clean contemporary design. An oversized delivery slot allows for delivery of small parcels and mail bundles while the Patented Parcel Delivery Door keeps items secure until the box is unlocked.

They're available at a bunch of chain home retailers, so you should be able to find one in your area. Check out Architectural Mailbox's "Where to Buy" page for more info.
