s This invention relates to improvements iny aerial (mast brackets, particularly pertaining to devices ,for clamping aerial masts, flags,
awnings, electrickwires, electric signs, and '15 signs `of other descriptionsy which may` be hungon brick Walls or the like. H
' The brackety vaccordingto this invention also vloe used eficiently yfor clamping f pipesffor steam, Wateror' any other type of 10 pipe adapted to begfastened to brick Walls,

cording. to they `illustrations and description herewith presenteds it is preferred that numeral l designate a brick Wall or a chimney support for an aerial mast 2, of the ordinary type, and madey from an'iron or steel bar, Vapproximately one-half inch in diameter. The upper end'of the mast is formed to sup-4 port in the usual manner a ball element 3,
made usually Aof porcelain, and adaptedto f actas an insulator for the chimney end yof the aerial, and also the ball 3 being made from porcelain Will have a minimum attraction for v lightning. The aerial extends through an opening in the ball 3, the free knot-ted in positiomtheball 3 having a rim portion 4 for connecting With' the mast 2. l
- The clamp or mast bracket consists of two and interlocked relationship with 'each other, a set screw being adapted to'eXtend through oneY of `the sections for contacting With the aerial mast. Each clampingsection consists of amain shank portion 5, a shoulder element f6 extending from one end and at right angles f to the shank portion, the outer inner end of the shoulder element 6 being provided with a pointedextension 7 for the purpose of'holding the mast bracket in firmV relationship with-a brick 8, of the chimney l, after the mast 2 and brackethave been located in position and'clamped firmly in l v place. s' Each' l clamping section 1s' also 'provided' with an element. 6. The extension' 9. aIiClshoulder ele-V ipent 6` are. iappro'xifrnately the sanie depth,
portion 5 extension 9 at right angles to the shank portion 5, but opposite in direction to the shoulder element 6. The extension 9 is provided thereto, as clearly disclosed in FigureA 7,-
