Mezuzah in "space" carved into a doorpost

If someone simply carved out a space in the doorpost and stuck the mezuzah there (inside of a case) would this be kosher? In such a case the mezuzah in it's case will stay where it is however it's rather easy to simply remove from there since it's not nailed in.

If anyone has any insights (or b'frat mareh makomos) on this please share.


  1. Bach YD 289 writes that this is kosher. Please look up (don't rely on my memory)!
