Beyond the Gray Door: Identity Theft Deterrent
Is your mail secure when it's in your mailbox? Mine wasn't. But it is now. Over the weekend, I had a residential mailbox locking system installed.
Harry Kalenberg of Plano, Texas, invented a mechanism to deter thieves from stealing mail from your mailbox. The device fits inside standard mailboxes. There is a slot so the mail carrier can insert the mail, but a key is required to open the device to remove the mail. Harry not only invented the device, but he makes, markets, and even installs them himself.
If you're interested in getting a Gray Door insert for your mailbox (they also come in a square shape), contact Harry at 800-680-7350. His website is www.mailboxsafety.com. The cost, installation and tax included, is $75. Peace of mind: priceless.
For those outside the Dallas/Fort Worth area, see Harry's website for information on how you can get a Gray Door, too.
