I have to mount a 55Lb light with angle bracket (total weight) onto an 18" thick brick wall outside. The wall rises above the roof line about 2' so the light will be at the highest point of the wall which will be above the roof line. The footprint of the angle bracket is 5" X 5" so I was thinking about installing 4 - 1/4-20 rods through the wall and attaching to kindorf on the back of the wall and the angle bracket to the rods on the front of the wall. The length of the angle bracket pipe is 8" so the light will be above the wall. Would someone please advise me whether or not the 4 - 1/4-20 threaded rods will sufficiently hold the bracket with light? This job is in central NC so it can get windy here. The wall may be 75 years old so the moisture content is probably high. Should I use stainless steel threaded rod? Is it weaker than regular threaded rod?

Thanks for the help.
