I did a search for this, but couldnt find an answer.

What is the best way to install M5's on this brick archway?

Thanks

others use hot glue and silicone. I would not do it. it leaves goo behind. I would use lit garland and place a 3/16x1 3/4 tapcon every 18 inches along the top and every 3 foot along the sides to secure it. paint the scews before install with a 1 buck can of grey primer from wal-mart. it will help them blend it with the mortar after you take it down. m5's ? what is that? I have heard of c9,c7, g20-50, and s6's and s11's, but no m5. I thought m5 was the british secret service.

M5's are just led minis that have an ice look look to them because of being facted. I thought about the garland, I will have to see what she says about that. I also thought about going with c6's around the archway.

Ive always just taped clear mortar hooks into the brick, (with the customers permission) works pretty well, heavy duty.
