Looks good but not good as a letter box

This letter box looks good but has several flaws. It is supplied with an internal plastic sleeve lining the hole, which is suitable for very thick doors but needs cutting down for the average upvc door. The instructions recommend using a knife to cut it down, but the plastic is too thick to easily cut with e.g. a Stanley knife without great care and risk of slicing fingers. If it had lines of thinner plastic round the sleeve for cutting, it would make this easier. However, the main fault is that whoever designed it obviously never tried posting letters through it. The inner flap has a strong spring and it is impossible to post letters through without getting them crumpled (see photo). The flap also has horizontal ridges which are guaranteed to catch on the letter and bend it back (see photo). There are also little round projections from the aluminium casting (see photo) which on my unit have edges rough enough to cut fingers when posting letters through. This is really disappointing in what is B&Q's flagship, most expensive letterbox. Sure it looks great, but it is a letterbox, and it should be designed for easily posting letters through without damaging them. I removed the inner flap by using a pointed instrument to pull back the spring loaded hinge pins. It still looks half reasonable, and it now works as a letterbox.
