Vigoro’s 9” Black Iron Plant Bracket is an effective and inexpensive way to hang flower baskets, etc
It includes mounting hardware, feels sturdy, and had no problem with 10” potted geraniums (see pics), even when heavy from being watered. Vigoro includes screws and anchors and claims a capacity of 40 lbs. That would be a heavy planter!
We installed several of these on our deck posts. The included screws are 1.5”. For added “holding power” I replaced the top screw with a #8 x 2” outdoor construction screw (the gold-colored screw in the picture - not included) which does not require drilling a pilot hole.
Some reviews noted it’s difficult to access the screws because the bracket is in the way. Here’s a trick: Mark your location and drill pilot holes (if necessary). Push a screw through the hole in the back support and align it with the mark or pilot hole. Get the screw started, but don’t tighten. Repeat for the second screw. At this point the bracket can swing far enough out of the way to allow the use of a drill/driver (an extension helps). Tighten until the bracket can no longer sit at an angle. Use a screwdriver to finish. The top will require a short screwdriver. The bottom screw can be accessed through a small hole in the front support, using a long, thin screwdriver.
Dimensions: 9.81 in. x 0.625 in. x 4.5 in.

This is designed poorly. The photos make it seem like it should be hung one way, but the curls aren't bent nearly enough for the plants to hang securely. I recommend hanging it 'upside down' to prevent any hanging plants from falling off.... not sure why the designers of the product didn't test this before selling it.

One of the holes is difficult to drill/ hard to reach. But otherwise it’s good. Holds a good amount of weight.
