Brick Hanger


I've been looking at these in catalogs for years now but only today did I realize that many people have brick interior walls and so might find them of use.

This might be the result of seeing all those cool and funky brick-walled domiciles on apartmenttherapy.com in recent months.

My outside walls are almost entirely brick but hanging things from them has never appealed to me so I figured other people would feel the same way.

Silly me.

From the website:

    Hang almost anything on brick, without drilling or hammering

    Spring-steel brick hangers snap easily onto a brick wall to support up to 25 lbs.

    No anchors to hang, no holes to drill, no damage to brick or mortar.

    When you redecorate, just unclip it and use it elsewhere!

    Use outdoors (rust-resistant) to hang climbing vines, or for stringing lights.

    Use indoors over a brick fireplace to hang picture frames, wreaths or clocks.

    Teeth grip standard brick 2-1/8" to 2-1/2" tall.

    1/8" minimum mortar recess needed.


In Brass or Antique Zinc.


Four for $9.99.

Brick walls may be trendy, but they have another advantage. Unlike flat plain plastered surfaces they break up sound reflections better. The bricks are rarely set exactly flat relative to each other and the mortar joints disrupt the sound, too. OK, they still echo - but not as much.
