Do you guys use brick clips for hanging wreaths and other items? HBL doesn't recommend or sell them, but many other companies do. Are they a safe alternative when the customer doesn't want to drill into the mortar?

Thanks,
Randy

we have tried them. the problem is bricks are available in hundreds of sizes, and the brick clips are available in 2. the ones I tried rarely fit well, and it just did not work out. You think they hate tapcons for wreaths, many folks hate them for garland around doors far worse.

I believe Village lighting company has an adjustable brick clip, and they also have a bracket that clamps onto the door jamb so you can hang your garland with out drilling. Lowes is the only place that I can find a gray colored anchor that we use around our doors. Keep them away from eye level, and you hardly notice.
