Hopeful that someone can assist with my enquiry. I recently bought a heritage style letterbox to be attached to our heritage style iron fence for our terrace house. Unfortunately the letterbox didn't come with any extra pieces to be used to attach it to anything other than a flat surface. I've attached three pictures to this post showing the letterbox from the front and back, and another image of a neighbour's letterbox to illustrate a nice simple way that I could attach it... only problem is that I have no idea what that piece of metal is that my neighbour has used to in effect clamp the letterbox to the iron fence.
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @nkotzman. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your questions.
It appears to be some type of T-slot aluminium extrusion. I am not aware of us selling a similar product.
A simple way of fixing the letterbox to the upright would be with pipe saddles. If you drill holes either side of the poles, to match those in the saddle, you could use a pop-rivet gun to secure the letterbox in place. You then might like to paint the saddles to blend in with the surrounding area.
Please let me know if you need further assistance or had any questions.
Nkotzman you could also use j bolts (available at bunnings)
