Just one brick? A paperweight and an offensive weapon are the only two that spring to mind.

Door stop.

Paperweight.

Weight to put on top of beancurds to make tofu.

To smash a house/car window to gain entry to a locked house/car for which you've lost the key.

As a chock in front of wheels to stop something rolling on a hill.

To hold down a part of a tent which you're trying to erect in a high wind.

To stand on to make you a bit taller to reach something just out of reach.
