    I have a quite brittle old wall I need to fix the following bracket (for a heavy basketball hoop). The instructions for fixing is attached but I feel I need a substantial fitting. Can anyone recommend? Would I be better using a resin or an anchor of some sort? 10C485DC-C976-4766-892C-CA34E79B2706.jpeg

    Once you have decided what fixings you are going with you can squirt expanding foam behind both sides that will help bond it to virtually anything.

    Haven’t yet worked out how to fix this into the stone and mortar wall but this is a good idea once I have.

    So i think my only option is to diamond drill the wall, use a 2 part resin and rods. I need to hope I get into actual stone versus mortar on this! Any others ideas are welcome!

    Could you fix 4x2 or box steel to the wall first where you can choose where to drill the fixings, then fix the hoop to that?

    That might be a great idea ... as I am very concerned about getting the holes aligned to the fitting!
