What size screw or bolt do I need to hang 55lb framed mirror on internal single brick wall? Two fixtures allowed on mirror back. Thanks


"Masonry sleeve anchors" are used by electricians to hang electrical boxes and other equipment on brick/block walls. They are plenty strong for your need.

Or you could use Tapcons (for performance see shear strength), but I find the sleeve anchors to be more versatile and they are stronger.

Either of those solutions is way strong enough to handle your mirror.
