[Costco] Clevermade S100 Parcel Lockbox

Was in my local Costco and noticed that they had these for sale. It’s an electronically operated lock box for couriers to drop off parcels into so they can be secured until you pick them up.

Assembly was easy but anchoring it could take some effort. Masonary drill bit and philips screw bit are included. I had to drill into bricks with my small 12V drill and it took two charged battery packs per hole.

Online MSRP is 199.99 USD.

The product sounds cool, but honestly, how many couriers would take the time to put it in the box, then lock it?

Seems like a good idea but not sure on the practical end if all couriers are required to use them. For most, probably easier to have packages delivered to the post office or other pick up point.

Couriers cannot drop stuff off at the post office, so only items shipped by Canada Post can be picked up if the shipper accepts Flex Delivery addresses.

That thing is so tiny, my Amazon order of 10 bags of Kettle chips and 48 rolls of sanitary tissue would be a tight fit.

Most will if you have a PO Box. The thing is can anyone here actually confirm the likes of UPS, Fed Ex, Canpar, Purolator, etc. will actually use these?

Nice idea.

...but if the UPS guy can't even be bothered to ring the doorbell when he throws the parcel on my porch I don't think he's gonna want to open this box.

...and yes, I've got the video evidence to prove it.

My Amazon delivery guy just leaves parcel on top of my parcel box making it even more visible to the street. Complained many times to no avail...

Spends $149 + labour to install box

Gets packages stolen anyways after

If I buy anything of value, I always ship to my work address. Safer that way. But otherwise, *knock on wood*, I live in a pretty safe area, cul-de-sac, and my neighbors are seniors who are always home and would notice rando cars in my area. Never had any packages stolen yet

I placed a huge plastic container by the door with a sign "Parcel Dropoff". It didn't have a lid (didn't need it as I have a covered porch) so it was easy access. Both packages I received were placed beside it.

Good luck trying to make this discreet and not noticeable in front of your porch/doorway. LOL! Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling EyesSmiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

And how will the Amazon driver know the lockbox code?

Zero, that's the problem. Most couriers don't even ring my doorbell to let me know they dropped something off. Some just toss the item from a few meters away.

They simply aren't paid enough to do anything more then that.

Got em, but honestly, what does that accomplish?

The people stealing these package know the police aren't going to get involved. So unless you recognize the person stealing your stuff, you're on your own.
