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. Usually chimneys are only a single skin of bricks, this arrangement spreads the load to avoid damaging the chimney stack.
The straining wire leaving the right hand side of the bracket, is made off using a Thimble No.4 passing through the eye of a tensioning bolt, whose nut can be seen facing the camera. The other end of the straining wire passes through the three side plates, is made off with a thimble, which fixes directly to the bracket. In this example a Spindle No.4 carries a single insulator, but its compatible with other spindle types and often seen with a No.7
The bracket assembly is riveted to 1¾″ x 1¾″ angle iron 8″ long. The centre of the spindle hole is 3¼″ from the angle iron.
