Now in our seventh year of business with tens of thousands of Brick Brace safety tools being sold and used worldwide every year!

Fitted a maximum of 3 bricks apart in a cement mortar mix, a maximum of 2.5 bricks apart within a lime or weak mortar mix and within every perpendicular joint upon block work.

Use a hammer drill with a 10mm masonry drill bit to remove the mortar from the required perpendicular joint. Insert the Brick Brace safety tool and engage fully to the angled plate. Tighten the centre screw with a 19mm socket spanner; the masonry is now reinforced and ready for safer alterations and superior results, guaranteed.

The main cause of collapse during masonry alterations is from overloading equipment due to underestimating the weight of the load through over extending Strongboy’s from the wall to gain more fitting space or when attempting to avoid internal wall damage.

A variety of temporary support equipment should be used to support 100mm, 215mm and cavity walls as it’s not possible for only Strongboy’s to  give the correct fitting work space without dangerously overloading.

(read our 2019 propping guide page for further Information)

The Maximum Safe Working Loads (S.W.L)

A plumb Acrow prop, concentrically loaded from head plate down to foot plate, maximum S.W.L 3,400kg.


The Props & Needle method, maximum  S.W.L 1,700kg, exactly 1/2 that of an Acrow prop. 

An Acrow prop fitted with a Strongboy, maximum S.W.L 340kg, exactly 1/10 that of an Acrow prop and can reduce down to 0kg depending on the working height of the Acrow prop, how plumb, how tightly fitted and how far it’s positioned from the centreline of the wall.

The more methods used, the more fitting work space is provided and the safer and easier the different tasks of masonry alterations become.

Further options for a far safer fitting/working area.

Brick Brace with Prop-Wise, Brick Brace with Needles and Brick Brace with Strongboy’s and depends on the task at hand of which variety is most suitable. 


The award winning Brick Brace, our guidance, and the Brick Brace masonry weight awareness charts address all the main causes of minor and major collapse during masonry alterations.

Purchase and use with confidence after reading all of our reviews and feedback from the builder’s, window fitter’s and other professional tradesmen that use it and with a full money back guarantee to anyone that doesn’t benefit from its use.



The stability & strength of masonry varies upon every task of which depends upon the length of the opening, the mortar mix, the age & the quality of the masonry. To work correctly & safely a Strongboy relies upon the unknown strength of masonry.


The safe working load of a Strongboy varies upon which sized Acrow prop is used, which pin hole height is used, how tightly the Acrow prop is fitted, how plumb and how far the Acrow prop is positioned from the centre line of the propped wall.


The many different tasks of masonry alterations require far more fitting/working access than what the Strongboy can safely offer without dangerously overloading itself.


A Strongboy dangerously misuses an Acrow prop due to the severe eccentricity of the load and because the web of the Strongboy changes the direction of the load onto the side of the Acrow props inner tube of which is only designed for vertical loads (from the head plate down to the foot plate).

 An eccentrically loaded Acrow prop curves and loses height when overloaded or over tightened which is the legal duty of the user not to overload and to work with an Acrow prop fitted with a Strongboy in a safe, professional & competent manner even though no warning of this is in place. 

The fully tested Brick Brace safety tool increases the unknown variable strength of lime & cement mortar masonry to 40Nm which through testing is proven to be strong and stable enough to prevent collapse during alterations.

We do not endorse the misuse of any temporary support equipment but anyone that continues to overload Strongboy’s through over extending from the wall to gain further fitting space and/or to avoid internal 1st floor wall damage upon finished rooms, we highly recommend bracing the masonry beforehand to reduce the risk of collapse from overloading.
