The CORRECT Way To Rig a Halyard To An Outdoor Flag Pole

The CORRECT Way To
Rig a Halyard To An
Outdoor Flag Pole

There is a right way and a wrong way to arrange or rig the halyard to an outdoor pole. The wrong way puts all the flying strain and stretch on the heading of the flag and can results in the grommets pulling out. The right way puts the strain on the halyard where it belongs and therefore protects the flag, making it wear better and longer.

Follow the RIGHT WAY illustration.
Note that the ends of halyard are joined in a knot to make a complete loop. Do NOT use the flag to complete the loop! See the WRONG WAY illustration. Snaps should be attached to the halyard before the halyard is knotted to complete the loop. Attach the flag to the snaps and adjust the positions of the two snaps so they are approximately the same distance apart as the grommets on the flag. The snaps should be on a very slight angle or straight across from the halyard to the grommets. Avoid any pull on the flag when adjusting the positions of the snaps. Notice the flight bow in the heading in the illustration. When properly attached to the halyard, the flag should be relatively loose when the halyard is pulled tight.

KEEP THE STRAIN ON THE HALYARD... NOT ON THE FLAG
