What about cutting one of the "legs" of the clothespin short so that you could put some kind of fastener through the mailbox and the longer leg of the clothespin to hold it in place?

That should work as there are holes left from the old plastic clip.

most new rual mailboxes use plastic tabs to keep the door on the mailbox closed. when this breaks and it will, you can repair it with a simple spring type wooden clothes pin. by attaching it in place of the broken clip it will allow the door to slip into the jaws of the pin and keep it closed. I used duct tape to see if it would work and then you can use a good glue but remember it too will wear out.
