You are best off using a stand-off bracket, or we sell a lashing kit which can be attached to a chimney too... http://www.thunderpole.co.uk/homebase-fittings.html

hi dave

good choice of antenna buddy if you put 3 to 4 Bamboo canes in to your antenna as the canes will stop the silver rod from bending & one stand-off bracket & also weather proof tape around the joints over the jubilee clips the tape will stop rain from getting inside the silver rod as long as the tape is water proof
