Replacing the concrete bracket with a new metal bracket which fits over the stump of the concrete column is called “sleeving”. In some cases, it’s done to extend the life of the column, and replace a spalling concrete bracket which may have become dangerous. In other cases, a lantern replacement or upgrade may require a shorter arm, so a sleeve is used.

All the best,
