OSU logo Mailbox Flag
A recent customer purchased one of our collegiate mini-stakes and told us, her husband wanted to replace their rural mailbox flag with one supporting their alma mater. This is a purpose for our mini-stakes we had never considered.
Rural mailboxes are offered by many companies, it is doubtful any two companies mount their flags the same way. To mount one of our stakes as a mailbox flag will require creativity and effort from you, an example of the effort for our mailbox is shown below. Any modifications to one of our mini-stakes voids our refund policy.

Our OSU Mail Box Flag is made of durable 14 gauge cold rolled US steel (thickness of steel increases as the gauge size decreases, so 16 gauge is thinner than 14 gauge).

How we modified the mini-stake to fit our mailbox
The flag mount on our mailbox is a bracket held on with two small machine screws.
The original flag was riveted to the bracket and the bracket has a tang that limits how far the flag will pivot. We removed the rivet and enlarged the hole to 1/4″.
There is a hole in the bottom of all our mini-stakes but we had to drill a new 1/4″ hole so the bottom of the stake would engage with the tang.
We used a new 1/4″ x 1/2″ bolt and self-locking nut. When assembled with the mini-stake, using the new hole, the stake engages with the tang and works great. The self-locking nut prevents the bolt from becoming loose with use.
We hope this has been helpful.
