A string line is an essential bricklaying tool; it enables bricks to be laid level and straight. Usually they are held in place with line pins or line blocks. The flat-bladed steel pins are pushed into drying mortar joints at opposite ends of the wall. The string is then tied between the pins to form a guide line.
