Assembly Instructions for Jointed Flag Poles

Please Note: Flag poles can have 2-5 sections depending on height.

 

1. Unwrap each section completely and place on 2 x 4s on the ground. Align all sections in order from top to bottom. Make sure that the match marks (numbers) stamped onto the each flag pole shafts are aligned.

5. At each joint that will be below the lifting strap (if used), just above each joint approximately 1-2, drill a hole and tap the hole with a 5/16 18 tap. Screw an allen screw into each of these holes. 1 or 2 holes are recommended at each joint. If poles are light enough to set by hand, then no screws are necessary.
