Showing off your patriotism by letting your flag fly is becoming more popular than ever, and it’s important that we remember the significance of our flag and what it represents: equality, justice, and most importantly, freedom.
There’s no better way to show the world that you believe in these fundamental principles than with a tall and proud US flag atop a residential flagpole.
In the past, residential flagpoles were made of steel pipes that are heavy and difficult to install, and it took a great deal of care to make sure that your flag remained untangled and untattered. This is largely because of the rope and pulley systems used to hoist and lower the flag.
Because the flag was fixed to a rope that was fastened to one side of the pole, the flag would often wrap around the pole and rope, which meant it needed to be lowered and repositioned. Additionally, when flags are unable to fly freely with the direction of the wind, they tend to wear out much more quickly because their frayed edges are more likely to get caught on the rope and pole.
Today, there is a much better option for exhibiting your patriotism: telescopic residential flagpoles.
Why Are Titan Residential Flagpoles So Easy to Use?
These types of residential flagpoles are an excellent, easy-care option for raising your colors because they are easier to install, use, maintain, and disassemble.
Titan Residential Flagpoles Are Easy to Install
Installing your telescopic residential flagpole is somewhat similar to installing traditional flagpoles that are made from a solid piece of steel or aluminum. You will still need to dig a hole and pour concrete to keep your residential flagpole in place, but setting the pole itself is much easier when you’re using a telescopic residential flagpole.
No matter what type of residential flagpole you are installing, it’s not recommended to set the pole directly in the concrete because it will be much more difficult to keep the pole plumb (straight up and down) while the concrete is setting.
The trick is to set a piece of PVC pipe in the center of your concrete and insert a level to make sure it is plumb. Once you have adjusted the PVC, it will stay in place while your concrete sets up.
What sets telescopic residential flagpoles apart in the installation process is the fact that one person can easily lift the pole and drop it in the plastic tube. Solid residential flagpoles are much more difficult to lift and hold while they are dropped into the ground, and they are even more difficult to remove without letting them tip over.
Because telescopic residential flagpoles are collapsible, this allows them to be condensed down to a much shorter length. As a result, their center of gravity is relatively similar to that of the person who is holding it.
This means you won’t have to worry about dropping your residential flagpole, which could damage your property or the pole itself. Another big advantage is that you can most likely install your telescopic residential flagpole by yourself, without the need for ladders, scaffolding, or an extra pair of hands.
Raising Your Flag Is Simple
Raising your flag is even easier than installing your residential flagpole when you decide to go with a telescopic flagpole model. Your telescopic residential flagpole will have sturdy plastic cuffs with simple metal clips that allow you to easily attach your flag while it is in the unextended position.
Once your US flag is secured to the first two clips on your residential flagpole, you can raise the top portion and secure it into place by engaging the interlocking sleeves found inside the pole. If you have a second flag you would like to raise, there is a second set of clips so you can add another banner of your choice.
To finish raising your flags, just repeat the step of lifting each segment and engaging the sleeves.
Maintaining Your Residential Flagpole Is a Breeze
If you ever need to lower your flag, whether it’s because of a storm, to set it at half mast, or replace it once it becomes tattered around the edges, collapsing your residential flagpole is as easy as following the previous steps in reverse.
Simply disengage the sleeves, then lower each section using both hands to keep it from falling too fast. But you don’t need to worry if you accidentally let it drop. Your telescopic residential flagpole will have a cushion inside each section to keep it from damaging the inner workings if it falls too quickly.
Once you have lowered all but the top section, drape your flag over your shoulder to keep it from touching the ground, then unclip it before lowering the top portion.
Regardless of their quality, all flags will eventually need to be replaced. However, telescopic residential flagpoles will keep your stars and stripes looking new for longer because of their unique design. Instead of using a rope and pulley system, these residential flagpoles include heavy-duty plastic cuffs that go all the way around the flagpole. These free-floating cuffs allow the flag to move in whatever direction the wind is blowing, which will prevent tangles and tearing.
Your Residential Flagpole Can Be Stored Anywhere
One of the best features of your telescopic residential flagpole is that you can easily store it and take it anywhere! Because it collapses down to a height that is just a little taller than the average person, it will fit in your garage, shed, basement, or spare room. And if you decide to move, you can pack it up alongside the rest of your belongings and set it up at your new home.
After collapsing your telescopic flagpole and removing your flag for storage, just lift your residential flagpole from its base, and it’s ready to be stored.
