G.P.O. Bracket No. 6

Chimney Bracket

The chimney bracket consists of a corner bracket and three plates, fixed to the four corners of the chimney by a wire passing through a shaped slot in the side plates. The wire is tensioned by a bolt at the corner bracket. Usually chimneys are only a single skin of bricks, this arrangement spreads the load to avoid damaging the chimney stack.
