Installing downspout brackets to brick.

I am looking for advice on what is best to use for anchoring rain gutter downspout brackets to my brick house.

Thanx

As Pulpo said, use plastic anchors. Make sure you drill through the mortar and not the brick itself. The plugs I use require a 1/4" masonry bit, and 1 1/2" screws.
