What is the distance between the mounting holes? If you are mounting on a post outside next to a driveway, will a 4x4 post be sufficient for a permanent mount?

The 4 corner holes are 3 7/8” x 9 1/4”, center-line holes a 9 1/4.

The center holes can be used for static mount by either tightening the screws down so the station can not slide to release or using a screw with a larger head than the release opening.
