    • Oh, I didn't see that when I first looked! I have not had issues with sticky numbers and I live in PA. There are inexpensive "plaques" that can be attached to the mailbox and then the numbers slide into the plaque. My neighbors found one that is solar lighted. Check Amazon for a wide range try typing "house number plaques" or "house numbers for mailbox"

    Maybe clear duct tape or gorilla or crazy glue? You could always ask at Lowe's.

    Did you try roughing it up a little where the numbers are to be placed. Give it some tooth to stick to.

    Any clear adhesive will help keep them from peeling. Over time the elements will continue to do the same thing though. You can cover the mailbox in a waterproof clear coat to help as well.
