Thanks for the comment, we're aware that the first choice is fixing in the mortar. This is a demo video to suggest another option when fixing to a tough surface or if the mortar's too crumbly. Been there a couple of times where the mortar just won't hold. 😊

Next time go. Into to mortar joint instead of the brick. It's much easier to repair mortar that replace a brick.

Why would anyone try to nail in a brick wall🤷🏻‍♂️
efixx
efixx Day ago
Yeah, it's fairly common in the UK. In fact the clips come with masonry nails already in them. As I say we'd normally clip into the mortar but if it won't hold this is another option. 👍

@efixx I don’t know man, crumbly would make it worse but no way using a nail is the right idea, I’ve ran lots of wire in the US and have never seen nails used except maybe if it was done by a homeowner on a wood wall, but even then it’s usually screws, maybe different methods in different parts of the world
efixx

Maybe if the mortar's too crumbly to get a fixing?

Another tip would be to move the cable a few mill so you don't damage the outer sheathing with the drill bit.
efixx
efixx 3 days ago
Yep, the sheath was fine, other people have mentioned it but the only reason there was an edit was to bring the time of the video down. After over twenty years of electrical work I just seem to get luckier and luckier! 😂😊

@efixx @efixx Really? The drill bit clearly rubs against the sheathing and then there's an edit in the video. If it didn't damage the cable then that isn't a matter of skill but of luck. 👍

Or just be skillful enough not to damage the outer sheathing at all, which is exactly what happened. 👍

Granite it's a little more work but it's better than the work that you would have ended up with! Like if you would have bent the nail and had to remove it chipping the wall and then depending on the Block you might have to put a patch on it and then relocate so in the long run it saves a lot of time it looks clean and it probably lasts a couple decades
