OK

Installation was marred by not having instructions for strap clips. Parts seemed to be good.
Pros:
Brackets are well made. Straps are galvanized
Cons:
No instructions for installing strap clips (unless I lost them).

Antenna bracket

Written By V, Pulaski, WI on Thursday, September 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It is a wonderful product. It is also hard to find. Having this to attach my antenna to the chimney is so much better than a really long pipe alongside the house and there is less motion. I recommend this to anyone who has a stable chimney and watches TV for free.

Seems a bit flimsy

Written By Pmgrnvl, Greenville, SC on Sunday, January 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It works as expected, but my installer was shocked by how thin the metal was and how flimsy this seemed. In fact, we debated using one that was 20+ years old and already on the chimney. Yes, this works as described. But it is a cheap made piece. Don't expect overly solid construction here.
Pros:
It works.
Cons:
Seems flimsy.

Adequate

Written By James, Disputanta, VA on Saturday, August 15, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The mount works OK. Poor installation manual. I replaced an older unit, so the whole setup would be new. The mount I replaced was better made but after years of service had gotten a little crooked.

Exactly how do you attach the strap to the strap clamp? [ Peter  May 15, 2014 ]
4 answers
  • Peter, It's admittedly a bit tricky. I highly recommend you have a friend assist and you should consider wearing gloves. The instructions are on the channel master support website. Just google the model. I would have included the direct link here but the form does not permit it. Basically consider the galvanized strap similar to a fabric one where you slip it through the clamp. Be careful not to tighten the clamp until you are confident you have pulled it to the proper tension. Once you tighten the clamp there's no way to loosen it to try again. Hope that helps!

  • To add to my comment. The last step is to fold the strap back over the clamp away from the eyebolt. Then trim excess strap leaving about an inch overhang. Sorry about that! [ JOEL   May 16, 2014 ]
  • Unroll about a foot of strap. Slide the clamp down the strap with the tabs pointing up toward the eyebolt. Slide the strap though the eyebolt and fold over itself. Slide the clamp over the folded strap up against the eyebolt. It also helps to first use your pliers or channel locks to flatten the strap close to the eyebolt to get the clamp as close to the eyebolt as possible. Now crimp the flat part of the clamp with pliers or channel locks leaving the other flaps up. Fold the strap back over the clamp across the eyebolt. Flatten the the two flaps sticking up over the strap and and crimp. Trim off any excess strap leaving about an inch of strap after the clamp. Hope this helps. [ JOEL   May 16, 2014 ]
  • Put the clamp right next to the tensioning screw. I put mine too far away and it just slips on the strap when tension is applied. Slide strap through clamp, then through the tension screw, then back through the clamp. I didn't see any instructions, so I'm irritated about that, unless they fell out. I'd like to see comments from others. [ JOHN   May 16, 2014 ]
