Diy tangle free flag pole
Flag poles can be installed so that the flag doesn't get tangled. (flag image by pearlguy from Fotolia.com)

Securing your flag to a flag pole seems simple, but you need to consider the likelihood that wind will cause your flag to get tangled around the pole. That's why it is important to install a system that will prevent tangling. Installing an unfurl sleeve can keep your flag flapping high. The sleeves rotate your flag around the pole when the wind blows.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Slide a plastic washer onto the flagpole. Push it until it stops immediately below the top.

  2. 2

    Place an unfurl sleeve onto your flagpole. Push it until it's snug against your plastic washer.

  3. 3

    Slide another plastic washer to the top until it's snug against the unfurl sleeve.

  4. 4

    Secure the second plastic washer into place with a permanent zip tie. Tighten the zip tie with pliers. Trim the excess zip tie with scissors.

  5. 5

    Thread a reusable plastic zip tie into the flag's grommet and then through your sleeve loop. Tighten the zip tie and cut off the excess. This will attach your flag's top to the unfurl sleeve.

  6. 6

    Pull down on the flag to find out where you need to install the second unfurl sleeve.

  7. 7

    Repeat Steps 1 through 5, positioning the items to where the bottom of the flag will touch the pole. Secure the bottom of the flag to the unfurl sleeve with your second plastic zip tie. Cut the end of the zip tie to size.
