HB25A, HB25B and HB25C. These are pretty sturdy brackets, although  
they all have some lateral "give". They are for 15", 24" and 36",  
respectively. My house has 17" eaves, plus gutters, so I had to use  
the HB25B.

Only for 25G. They won't fit 45G. (Although one friend of mine has 45  
bracketed to an HB25C for the first guy point - it fits only because  
it isn't square to the 45G, and the adjustable straight brace is

Monster bracket. Huge. It's like 6 feet across.

Not quite so big as the HBUTVRO, cross-bracketed. Should have much  
more lateral stability than the HB25 series.

These look wimpy small to me. Haven't actually seen one, but from the  
catalog looks like you'd have to have massively overbuilt eaves to  
use these.
