Window box holders and/or brackets?

athenainwiMay 24, 2011

I'm not sure which forum to put this on, but figured a window box is a container so here it goes. My husband bought a 36" window box for me to put on our deck. The brackets that we bought to hold it were a miserable failure - they were difficult to attach to the deck railing and then the ends of the holders were only slightly bent so one shove would send the box off the deck onto the ground. So we bought a holder for the box from home depot (link below). We used some wood screws to secure the holder to the deck and that seems to work well. The problem is that the wire parts of the holder seem flimsy and the box bends and wobbles a bit. It works, but I'd prefer something more stable that holds the box level. Does anyone have any suggestions?

That is a pretty liteweight holder; looks more appropriate for holding just a couple pots. See the attached link. This is what I used at my daughter's apartment
