GOOD NEWS: The numbers themselves are solid and well made. BAD NEWS: The installation system is a big problem. First, there's no template included so getting multiple numbers straight and properly kerned is an issue. I made my own template and moved the numbers around until I got what I wanted. Second, the attachment system is woefully inadequate. The bolts, if that's what you want to call them, are too short to adequately allow the numbers to be raised more than a quarter of an inch (at best). Third, the plastic anchors provided are pathetic and the instructions absurd. They say to drill a 5/16" hole, which is slightly bigger than the anchors themselves. So if your working surface isn't solid, meaning you have a void behind the outer sheathing, then the holes are too big and the anchors won't bottom out which means they won’t grip anything. In fact, they'll slip into the void with the slightest provocation. Which is what happened to me. Now that my mounting surface is totally messed up with giant holes I can not use, the numbers will be liquid nailed to the house. Thanks a lot Architectural Mailboxes.
