Masonry anchor repair

Hello,

two anchors on the right side of our glass fireplace door have come out. How would you repair?

drill new holes and replace with proper anchors? What size and type would you recommend?

somehow re-use the existing holes? Patch? Larger proper anchor? Size and type?

in store shopping is restricted where I am now, so need to order online.

thanks

I see a self threading fastener in the picture. That's not what was in the brick.... was it ?
That is strictly a sheetrock fastener.

I can't tell how big or deep the hole is. In brick you can use plastic mollys or lead anchors.
I prefer lead. For the most part you drill a 1/4" or 5/16" hole in the brick using a masonry bit. The lead anchor gets tapped in and gives a place to put the screw in. There are many different sizes. It depends on the size screw you need for the door. In the picture that anchor will handle a #10 thru #14 screw. Your door will probably require a #10 sized screw. The ad says wood screws. I use sheet metal screws.

Lead anchor

Check the web for Tapcon screws/ bolts that are made for the existing holes in the brick and hopefully not too big in diameter for the holes in the fireplace door hardware.
