Downspout Straps and Brackets to attach Downspouts to walls
Downspout brackets also known as Downspout Hooks or Wood hooks, along with downspout straps are very simple items used to secure downpipes to walls / vertical structures.
Straps are normally 1.5″ wide, made with edges formed by a roll former (pipe lock) to give it a nice detailed edge.
We also manufacture custom brackets, and these may be made with a plethora of materials, such as copper, aluminum, or even stainless bar for example.

Most of our pipe bands are offered in 24 gauge colored galvanized steel, 24 gauge galvalume plus, 0.032″ Kynar aluminum colors, 0.027″ regular standard aluminum colors, copper, lead coated copper, zinc, freedom gray and other materials.
FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions
How many downspout straps do I need per 10' of pipe?Normally, 2 straps are used per length of downspout. Usually each one will be about a foot from the seam / end of the pipe. Additionally, you may place one strap in the middle of the pipe and use the other 2 straps at the seam, to hide it.
Can downspout brackets and pipe bands be custom made?Absolutely. Our talented craftsmen can replicate or custom manufacture any elaborate pipe band, bracket or strap in different sizes and materials.
What is the standard distance off the wall?Our downspout straps are normally manufactured to have the pipe sit 1" off the wall, leaving 2" of strap material to be bent on site for each side. This way if a little more or less is needed it can be accomodated on site.
How are downspout straps installed?Rivets or screws to the downspout, either from the front or preferably the side, then a nail, masonry pin or screw to wall on each side.
Do wood hooks come with wire?They do not.
How are downspout hooks installed?Hammered into a wall. Downspout fits into wood hook which is then fastened to the downspout, or secures the pipe with a wire.
