How do I get a replacement mailbox key from USPS?
Most new mailboxes are very secure from theft. These new mailboxes come with locks that have USPS stamped on it. The postal worker does not carry keys to your mailbox. They access either the back side or open all doors with one key to fill the slots with mail. Here are steps you could take to get your locks replaced with a new set of keys.
- First call your Post master and ask if a postal worker will allow you to remove your lock so you could replace it yourself.
- If this is not possible in your area. Call a local locksmith and schedule to have your lock replaced.
- Access 24 Locksmith offers this service to Fremont, Newark, Union City, Hayward, Castro Valley, Milpitas, Dublin and Pleasanton.
