I was pessimistic when one of the suppliers I use sent me this wire specifically for my 72" wreath and even though I was leery of using it I gave it a try. I hung the wire over two support points so the weight of the wreath would not be supported by one stress point on the wire. To me wire that has more stands tends to be more pliable and durable while less strands tends to be less so. I did an experiment with much smaller gauge (100 lbs) picture wire and it tolerated 300% more abuse then the much larger wire. I had both support points safety wired to the building to prevent it from being able to jump off the supports. Instead the support wire broke and down went the wreath over 30'. There was a lot of wind at the time that may have caused some movement of the wire over the supports. But I do not believe if the wire had been like heavy duty picture wire and less like baling wire I would have had this failure. You can see the large arch over the entry to the church and that is where the wreath plummeted from. It was mounted about 2' from the very peak. You would think they would have a stairwell with roof access and an outlet up there some place but that's not the case. A 40' ladder is the only way up. It takes one guy on the ladder, one guy holding the ladder, and two on the roof to safely raise up the wreath to get the job done. The new wreath is going to be hung from 360 lb chain and will be bolted to the building with a 5/8" X 4.5" insert. The only thing I still don't like is that the limestone fascia rock is only 4" thick. Luckily, there is a huge coping cap on the top that helps keep the wall loaded with downward pressure. This was a learning experience and from now on I will use chain on any wreath larger then 48". My supplier is going to get me another wreath at 1/2 off and is working with me as I speak to try to get me one shipped from north of Dallas to my Austin area. I just happened to ponder Greyhound as an option and sure enough they do have a package express service. It may be less then $50 to get me my package here by late tonight. I want to keep this church client happy since they spent $2700 this year and are likely to up that amount a bunch for next year. I had given them the cheapest bid for a bunch of work and then they asked me to do totally different work with no bid required. Got to love that! I'll let the cat out of the bag a little on the supplier since they are bending over backwards to get me a new wreath. Jason just emailed me and he personally is running to Greyhound in Sherman to drop off my wreath for shipping. If it's under a $100 he's going to cover it. I'm sure all you guys in this trade all know who Jason works for.
