I would say yes. BUT .... you need to "properly" fix it to the wall. Consider the following as one possible solution: Hopefully your bricks are of good quality. Buy some masonary anchors ... the type that have a nut on the end and expand in the hole as you tighten them up. They should be at least two inches deep… see more I would say yes. BUT .... you need to "properly" fix it to the wall. Consider the following as one possible solution: Hopefully your bricks are of good quality. Buy some masonary anchors ... the type that have a nut on the end and expand in the hole as you tighten them up. They should be at least two inches deep into the brick, so at least 2 1/2 inches long overall. You would need 4 or 6 of them depending on the size of your TV. Also get some 3/4" outside diameter washers and the same quantity of spring washers ... one for each anchor. (If you don't want to use spring washers, then use a NYLOC nut on each anchor.) Mark the hole positions, then use a mortor or concrete drill bit to drill the holes. (The size of the masonary drill bit required should be shown on the packaging for the anchors). Once the holes are drilled, lightly tap the anchors into the holes to the correct depth and remove the nuts from each. Do not damage the thread while tapping them into the holes. Leaving ther nut on tapping into place will ensure that the threads remain undamaghed. Put the mount plate over the bolts, then add washers and then the nut to each. Tighten the nuts ... but do not over tighten them. There may even be some other similar innovative anchoring products available at your hardware store. Someone there should be able to advise you of the best anchor for your project. The idea is to get a strong anchor without damaging the bricks. see less I would say yes.

Yes this mount is capable of mounting on brick wall just make sure you use the plastic plugs that they provide you with your mounting bolts or purchase four inexpensive metal plugs for your mounting bolts to grab on to in your brick wall.

Yes, but you would need a hammer drill to pre drill holes then use an epoxy to set the bolts into.
