Why do I need a letterbox and not a letterplate?
Police and Insurance companies are committed to preventing crime, theft and fraud, and when it comes to letter plates in peoples front doors (as 80% of burglaries are through your front door) their main concerns are:
Lock Manipulation: the art of opening your front door from within using a wire and letting themselves in your front door.
Car Theft: we all do it, walk in and place our keys on a table, shelf or key rack in reach of our front door.
ID Theft: we go to work, the postman delivers our mail on to our welcome mat and the thieves help themselves during the 8 hours we are out.
Arson Attacks: unfortunately, and we hear about it in the media too often, cowards like to pour accelerants through letter plates followed by a match, enough said!
Thermal Co-efficiency: with the introduction of EPC ratings by the EU. Having a letterbox instead of a hole in your front door can help your rating.
Noise Reduction: continued advances in reducing noise pollution are often negated when a hole is then cut into your front door.

Recommend and price
Because when I call the lady said it was a very secure letter box and difficult to steel mail from.
Highly secure after being the victim of mail theft and identity fraud. Although getting free delivery, which is nice, I didn't get the choice of express delivery nor could I see how long delivery is expected to take which is very useful to know and also could be a differentiator when choosing who to order from.
