Not for outdoor use
26 Jan 2014
By Taid
, Bethesda
"Bought one of these a few months ago and very foolishly used it outdoors. The wall fixing was sound but the actual material the mount is made of is too flimsy too withstand outdoor use in a windy location. If I had used it in the loft I'm sure it would have warranted five stars in all areas."

Good, but could be longer
29 Jun 2012
By Anonymous
, Powys
"Could do with being a bit longer - I used this with a large aerial - item 60215, a Labgear high gain item, and it was only just longer than the aerial reflectors. Quality good though."

Great Value and makes job easy
19 Oct 2011
By John117
, Sussex
"This made installing the aerial in the loft easy but due to the size of aerial I bought I had to mount it on the support beams for the water header tank. The pole was too short to enable me to fix it to a cross rafter so I used these beams and a strap of wood to lift it up clear of the flooring. If pole was 6inches longer would be better"

Easy Loft Kit for Aerial
1 Jun 2011
By AndyforDIY
, Herefordshire
"This kit is a great way to easily mount an aerial in a loft.
- Well made
- Easy to install - no more tying an aerial between trusses with cord/rope!!
- Versatile fixing: horizontal (joist) or vertical (roof truss)
- Great value for money
Would happily recommend to anyone

So near to a good product
24 Jan 2013
By DSDDSD
, BRUM
"Everything going for this product: cheap and flexible mounting allowing you to mount your aerial in multiple positions.
Now here is the rub; it depends on the size of the rear reflectors. If they are larger than the length of the mounting pole you cannot mount on a flat bed on the horizontal - very important in limited space - I am you sure will agree.
We will pay an extra 70p-90p to cut of a bit of ally if needs be....much better than paying out for something that needs modifying before use."

short loft fixing kit
23 Jan 2013
By diyerdavid
, Gosport
"Whist this loft fixing kit is exactly as described the pole is a bit short when using a high gain aerial as the vertical elements of the aerial are as long as the pole so I had to improvise to extend the pole length to be able to install the aerial in the desired location."

Cheap basic mounting.
5 Oct 2012
By Geek
, Perth
"Simple to use, not hugely robust but for use in loft as intended I see no problems. I have used out doors in sheltered position.
Corrosion in that situation may be a worry as would be strong winds, but has lasted longer than I expected for a temporary lash up - even with a 48 Ele Tv antenna fitted outdoors.

Could be better
27 Mar 2009
By DIYNinja
, Midlands
"Simple product which just about does the job. However, it should be supplied with a longer pole to cope with both the large reflectors on modern aerials and the thickness of insulation in the loft. Also, plastic cap didn't seem to fit (so it went into the bin)."

Review
25 May 2012
By Tarnman
, Cumbria
"Recommended because I needed the bracket!
The pole supplied is 38cm long - I found this to be too short
and bought a 90cm pole from my local hardware store. So I just used the bracket.
I have a new build house with lots of roof insulation - half the pole height gone. Then was installing a LABGEAR 450 aerial for which the reflector required about 40cm in height.
The bracket did the job but beware. The bracket has a rectangular base and it looks like you could align the bracket along a celing joist. But the bracket width = ceiling joist width which means the screws are too near the edge of the ceiling joist. So I installed a plank (made from 17mm ply twice) 17cm wide and 34mm deep across 2 celing joists. The item comes with 35mm screws qty 4.
And when installed as per the drawing, the bottom end of the pole wobbles as the bottom end is not clamped but sits loosely over a raised hole."

Poor quality
6 Nov 2010
By bags

"I have bought 2 hi gain aerials from labgear and a wall bracket all superb value but this loft bracket is a waste of time it has a very small pole no good for an aerial with big refletors like most of the digtal aerials have know save your money and make your own . ( no reflection on screwfix )"
