MOUNTING ON BRICK
Brick Clip Hooks, Fits Brick 2-1/8" to 2-1/2" in
Mounting on Brick
Option 1: Brick Clamps/Clips (a simple and inexpensive solution)
If you’re skittish about power tools, or simply don’t want to drill holes into your walls, start with brick clamps. These ultra-handy and inexpensive attachments clamp onto bricks (sans anchors or adhesive) for the purpose of hanging art
If your grout is recessed, meaning the bricks poke slightly out over the grout line, you can use brick clamps to hang things on the wall. Snap the clip (sometimes called a "clamp") right onto the brick face and that's it; the hook is part of the device. While shopping for one, just check how much weight it can bear before purchasing (this one costs just $8 and can bear up to 25 pounds of weight). If your walls are painted over, making for a smoother brick surface that the clamps can't latch onto, try using sticky hooks instead.
- Clips clip on and off brick easily.
- There are no holes to drill.
- It holds up to 25-pound.
- The attractive antique metal finish will look great on any color brick.
- Fits bricks of 2 1/8 in. to 2 1/2 in height
- NOTE: You always have option of drilling in grout or mortar area. Make sure you drill into a mortar joint -- one of the white lines in between the brick. Do not drill directly into the brick! Not only would that be difficult, but you would risk cracking the brick. A masonry drill bit is designed for brick and concrete and is identifiable by a triangular-shaped tip.
Option 2: Removable Adhesive Hooks (for painted brick only)
Sticky hooks: Now you can choose from plastic or metal in your choice of finish, style, size, and weight limit. These are ideal for lightweight artwork (up to 5 pounds) or for a temporary attachment with the option to rearrange things from time to time.
Option 3: Wall Anchors (for heavier pieces)
If brick clamps and adhesive hooks aren’t the answer, wall anchors are the most durable and permanent solution. They're the best option for hanging heavy pieces that require extra security. Unlike drywall, anchors attached to brick walls are essentially permanent and much more difficult to move if a mistake is made. Place the wall anchor into the hole you drilled in mortar and screw in the picture hook. Leave just enough of the screw to hang your artwork securely.
