            *Unwrapping the flagpole shaft

            *Attaching Top Truck Unit

            *Screw Ball into Truck Unit

            *Thread Halyard Through Pulley and Tie.

            *Attaching Cleat

            *Installing Flag Snaps on Halyard

 

You are now ready to install your flagpole!! 

 

Here is what you will need:

           

            *Ground Sleeve (provided with flagpole)

            *Shovel or Post hole diggers

            *Level

            *Tape Measure

            *Mixed Concrete

            *Wooden Shims

            *Sand

            *Flash Collar (optional)

 

1.  Begin by digging your hole.  The depth and width will be determined by the size flagpole you have. General rule for installation is 10% of the flagpole's height.  (Example: A 25' flagpole will need a hole 2.5' deep, a 30' flagpole's hole 3' deep.)

2. Insert Ground Sleeve in center of hole.

3. Pour wet concrete in hole around Ground Sleeve. (Ground Sleeve should be 1” above concrete level.)

4. Use Level to make sure Ground Sleeve is plumb.

5. (Optional: Put Flash Collar on flagpole.)

6. Place the base of flagpole into the Ground Sleeve and walk flagpole up until flagpole dropped completely into ground sleeve.  (Ground Sleeve will be larger in diameter than flagpole's diameter.)

7. Use Wooden Shims and Level to ensure your flagpole is completely Plumb.

8. Pour DRY Sand into Ground Sleeve between flagpole and Ground Sleeve until full.  This is what secures your flagpole.
