The name Senator comes from an ex-Senator who called in and asked if Fort Knox could modify a mailbox for him. He wanted a compartment below his mailbox to be used for either small packages and/or newspapers. He liked the larger 12"x 12" mailbox, but wanted something a little extra. Fort Knox then took his idea and came out with the Senator model, named after him. In the design process, they thought of different ways to make this mailbox while making it a little lighter for easier manufacturing. However, they decided to use 1/4" steel for the entire shell of the mailbox to maintain the Fort Knox" standards. Now their heaviest mailbox is becoming one of their most popular mailboxes as well weighing over 145 LBS! The Senator has a 3rd door for the lower compartment to keep packages and/or newspapers out of sight and locked up with the optional slam-lock (pictures below show the optional "slam-lock" on the lower door. Default is a door pull knob) Dimensions: 12"W x 18"H x 23"D Weight: 145 LBS!

The Standard Lock

7 PIN Tumbler Locks (round keyed)
These standard locks come with the Fort Knox Mailbox.  They are a chrome plated "tubular" 7 pin key lock.  Tubular locks are more durable (pick-proof) than the common keyed lock. The cams that hold the Fort Knox Mailbox doors shut are 1/8" steel which is thick enough to keep out the unwanted criminal. (2 keys included with lock).



Optional Lock Upgrades


Slam lock:

This lock is designed for those who receive packages larger than the 1 3/4" slot.  The "Slam-Lock" is made so that you can leave the main locked door unlocked to receive packages.  Your mail carrier opens the "Slam-Lock" by pulling the polished chrome knob, takes your outgoing mail if needed, and then places your mail and/or packages in the mailbox.  The next thing that is done is the mail carrier then shuts the "Slam-Lock" door and it locks.  You are once again the only one with a key.   (2 keys included with lock). RECOMMENDED FOR THE LOWER COMPARTMENT DOOR ON THE SENATOR.

ABLOY CL Series - "Double D" Hole Cam Lock:

Better known as the "Abloy Lock" which is the most reliable security lock available for coin-operated laundry equipment, vending machines, coin boxes, slot machines, music and gambling machines, pay phones and other high security applications like our Fort Knox Mailboxes!  (2 keys included with lock)

The Vault lock:

Made for those who just want EXTREME security. This lock acts just like a vault where steel pins position behind a strip of steel to keep anybody with some extra time on their hands out of this mailbox. From the front of the mailbox it looks the like our standard lock, but on the inside it shows the extreme measures we take on security with this lock.
