Tapcon - I believe these are the easiest to use for installation into brick or concrete!!!! Use 1 1/2 or 2" Tapcon screws available from any hardware store.  You must use the drill bit provided. Click here for Tapcon product information Procedure for Window box installation: 1. Center window box in center of window. 2. Make sure the box is level (the longer the level you have the better) 3. With the window box where you want it use a Sharpie to mark the holes in the predrilled mounting bar. 4. Remove the box from the wall and use a 1/4" diameter drill bit to drill a hole in the concrete, wood or siding in the center of the mark you made in step 3. 5. Use 1/4" diameter screws or a little smaller. 6. I always recommend using a 12" extension on your drill to screw in the screws. It is a lot faster to run the extension through open design areas of the box instead of trying to get your drill or electric screw driver inside the window box. 7. Tighten screws, step back and enjoy the moment! Plastic Wall Plug - for use in masonry, plaster and drywall, with No. 6 or No. 8 screws.
