    Default Vertical runs on brick house

    Wondering how others are doing the vertical pixel runs on brick corners ?

    Mine are in Boscoyo strips. I have cup hooks in the eave that they hang from and I attach the bottom to a stake in the ground. They donít actually touch the brick at all.

    Agree with Jon's approach. Stainless steel hooks in the soffit and something at the bottom to keep the strip taut. I use bungie cords.

    I used the Holiday coro clips and drilled 1/2 pvc for the pixels

    Did you drill into your brick to mount ?

    Think I got it worked out with no drilling of holes anywhere or hot glue .

    Could do the same thing that Jon said, Hook in the soffit to hang the PVC from and something to secure it to the ground to keep it straight

    Interesting question, I'm trying to figure out a few things related where I don't have mounts, and I'm not drilling into the house.

    I just did a proof of concept with Holiday Coro's ribbon mounts. I used clear silicone on a horizontal run on stone to temporarily attach the small clips this snaps into. You could easily mount this on 3/4" square molding stick to make larger continuous mounts. And silicone the wood to the brick. I don't think it would take many spots to hold it vertical if the piece rests on something at the bottom.

    I read an article that says hot glue gun works really well, although my biggest mounting challenge is stucco over styrofoam, and I have to do a test to see if the glue will rip off the stucco. I'm going to try silicon also.
