    IKEA Shade Sail Hack

    I'm looking into putting up shade cloths over our patio, where it's both very hot and very windy (Chihuahua desert resident here, *waves*), which would be anchored into brick. I'd been planning to just use ~1/4" eye bolts -- does your preference for the IKEA anchors mean that eye bolts won't stay in?

    I'm not sure what it is -- they're painted over white, and they're bigger and less squared-off than regular bricks. They're also a PIA to drill into -- takes a corded power drill, a bit for concrete, and leaning on the drill for about five minutes to make a hole. But the last thing I want to have to do is make *more* holes because the first one came out in the wind, so I'll definitely take your advice and see if I can find anchors like that. Not leaving big unsightly holes in the masonry is also a plus, since this is a rental place. Thank you for weighing in on that!
