    1. @Bobofet241 Yah? they gonna follow me around to make sure I use it? If something like that does happen, I’ll put the package on top, in spite of that stupid rule.

    2. @Tullock You are so right. I came here to say that no delivery person is going to do this. It is too complicated and takes time when they already don’t have enough time.

  1. Look up “Keter Package Delivery” on amazon, available for purchase today. Simple and better design IMO. Secure without any futzing for the delivery person.

  2. Couldnt someone just steal the “boxr” and/or smash the lock? I also hear that electronic locks can be “picked” with a very strong magnet.

  3. TALK TO YOUR LOCAL COUNCILLOR AND LET THEM KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD NEEDS AND SHOULD HAVE ONE OF THESE BOXES FOR THE LOCAL RESIDENTS. WHERE ONLY THE ACCOUNT HOLDER THAT ORDERED THE ITEM CAN SCAN THE BOX WITH THEIR SMARTPHONE TO CONFIRM THEY ARE THE OWNER OF THE PACKAGE IN THE BOX BEFORE IT OPEN THE LID.

    1. @I.O It’s existed many years now. It’s called Amazon Lockers. But Canada Post would never be able to pull this off.
