Needed Modification

StevenB. from Minnesota on 9/15/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The brackets worked great but the due to the size of my chimney the straps were to short. This seems like a common theme among reviews which makes me wonder how much it would have cost to make the straps 30% longer and then had people trim them to length. As it was, I picked up 2 16' 1/8" steel cables and hardware and the antenna is now mounted very securely. Another $10 spent and 1/2 hour to run out for parts that could have been avoided if the product had come packed with longer straps. Otherwise, worked great.

Pros: Easy, fast, secure

Cons: parts to small for application.

Chimney Mount

GH from Michigan on 6/8/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install. Sturdier than I thought it would be. A roof, tower, or wall mount would be harder to install. This did not require high DIY skill.

Pros: Easy to install. It works!

Cons: Has sharp metal edges on the straps. Be careful.

Chimney Straps

Cardin from Merrick, New York on 5/5/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have used chimney straps to mount antennas for decades and they work well if adjusted correctly. They have held up against hurricane force winds. This set of chimney mounts are similar to those from years ago.

Pros: Keeps the antenna mast off of the main building and places the antenna at a height that maximizes potential reception.

Cons: The metal straps can be difficult to work with. They have a mind of their own at times. Improperly using the slip clips could ruin your setup, so be sure of a snug fit before mounting your antenna.

seems to be sturdy but the antenna needs to be moved from chimney to side of house & go up higher due to large oak trees obstructing north east channels

I needed extra instructions to assemble the clips




John from Waldorf, MD on 5/1/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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).

I have used it before but got a very good price from Crutchfield so I had to purchase one to add another antenna.

Antenna bracket

V from Pulaski, WI on 9/26/2013

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

Pmgrnvl from Greenville, SC on 1/27/2013

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.


James from Disputanta, VA on 8/15/2009

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.

Overview: The Channel Master CM-3080 is used to secure the antenna mast to a chimney. Two brackets are included to anchor the mast at two different points, as far apart as the chimney will allow. The brackets will accommodate antenna masts with an outer diameter up to 1-1/2 inches. The center of the antenna mast is held 3.8" from the chimney. Two 12' metal straps are included.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Better price than Walmart and Crutchfield didn't make me sign up for an account. [ Richard  Nov 04, 2017 ]
because of the high prices of cable and the excellent reception i receive with the over the air antennae i purchased from Crutchfield. [ Mark  Dec 21, 2016 ]

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! Colleen [ COLLEEN  May 16, 2014 ]
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 ]
