Quality brushes cut a length of wire 1" long, and push down in the middle of the wires and secure them in the base of the brush so they are held in place. That's why I like using Weber's y shaped brush, the bristles are held in the middle of two strands of twisted metal, very difficult to come loose.
That's the one I use and it has held up like a champ!
