Measuring Guide

THERE ARE NO INDUSTRY STANDARDS OR SIZES IN MAIL SLOTS.

YOU MUST MEASURE ACCURATELY!

 

Successful purchases and installations depend entirely on accurate measurements

 

One manufacturer's "magazine" size may be another manufacturer's "letter" size.

Even our "Elite" magazine size is a different size from our "Classic Surface Mount" magazine size

 

There is a high likelihood of dissatisfaction with inaccurate measurements

 

Remove your existing mail slot and measure the width and height of the actual hole cut through your door or wall

 

Only the size of the hole cut through your door or wall determines if one of our mail slots will fit

 

NB. Although it is always easier to increase the size of an existing hole than decrease it...
