We've been flying a U.S. flag almost every day for the last two years.
A couple of days ago, after some vicious winds, the flag mount pulled
loose and fell to the ground.
The flag holder was mounted on our brick garage with 1/4" plastic
anchors in holes drilled in the mortar. The screws are still tight but
the anchors appear to have pulled cleanly out of the holes.
Would metal anchors be better than the plastic ones?
Can I drill holes in the brick with a masonry bit, and would that be
any better than holes in the mortar?
Any thoughts, comments, or suggestions will be welcome.
