I'm trying to put up a coat hanger into a brick wall. The house is an old apartment block in Berlin and the coat hanger is quite heavy and sticks out from the wall so it will need quite a lot of support. Especially to hold up all the clothes.
I have tried to drill at several places but either end up hitting something that I can't get through or the opposite, the wall is weak and crumbles and the hole becomes too big and too lose. I've tried inserting screws with plastic anchors into those lose holes but they simply won't hold. I also don't have another place for the coat hanger.
So my plan is to refill the lose holes and drill again. As far as I can tell I have two options but both with their cons.
Option 1: Fill the lose holes with epoxy and stick in the screw before it sets. Con: I won't be able to get the screw back out and take my coat hanger down in the future.
Option 2: Fill the hole with hydraulic cement. Con: I'm afraid I won't be able to completely fill the hole and that it will leave air pockets. (The holes are 8 mm wide and quite deep).
So, is there anything I'm missing here? What would be the best way for a layman to fill a small drill hole in his brick wall so that he can drill again in the same place and later remove whatever he stuck in that hole?
All the best, Eythor M.
P.S. I've tried doing my research and seen similar questions here. But none of them address the cons I mentioned above.
