would reccomend this product especially if you want to fly more than one flag i have the American flag and a marine corps flag flying
My husband and I installed our flagpole in, at most, a hour or so. We dug the required hole, prepared it, as per the instructions and mixed up the cement. We kept the 1st main section of the pole in the small section that fit in the ground. This made leveling the pole far easier. The instructions were clear and easy... far easier than I expected.
The next day we went back to our cottage and checked to make sure the cement was dry. We then installed the rest of the sections and flew our flag for the 1st time. It looks terrific and has weathered some extremely strong winds with no problems.
I found a few "cheaper" poles, but they didn't have the rope, shive, & tie off set up. you had to clip the flag to eye hooks, prior to assembly. These also are MADE IN USA!
I am extremely pleased with everything about this pole. It was a replacement for one that had blown over. It fit the sleeve that I had put in for the original and so I didn't have to dig a hole and pour concrete. It also came with a Nylon US Flag, which lasts the longest.
This is a great item for its cost. I would suggest that the user get the old style dog collar clips to remove your flag instead of the plastic clips you have to continuously adjust. Also, the plastic tube that comes as a base is a bit thin. I went and got a thicker tube and dug it a bit deeper. Living in AZ, the winds get pretty high. Just suggestions, but a 5 right outta the box. I just made it a 10.
When I received the flagpole kit, I was really surprised at how nice it was. Followed instructions, very easy, and once up, was taller than I had expected. And, it came with the embroidered flag. Very pleased, am enjoying it very much!
I would recommend this inexpensive flag/pole set to everyone who lives in a relatively benign (moderate) wind area. The flag is of high quality and the pole although attractive and nicely finished could be made from thicker wall aluminium tubing for higher wind loading conditions. The line, flag clips and mast head, however, were of sufficient strength so I used only three sections, approximately 17 feet, and stiffened the lower half of the flagpole, encasing it within schedule 40 conduit tubing I purchased for under $4.00.
I purchased this flagpole kit knowing that I live in Hurricane, Utah and would need to do everything I said above. I am satisfied with the product and for the price feel I now have an attractive flagpole that will survive all but the very strongest wind conditions where I live. IE 75mph gusts.
I have wanted a sizable, yet 'affordable' flag [and pole] for some time now and this product foots the bill! The most involved task is the concrete base, and since we live on a windy hill I definitely wanted it to be securely planted. Set up was easy and quick. Materials and fit and finish are high quality. I was very pleased overall with this product and it's the most bang for the buck. The pole is comprised of 5-4' sections and [of course] not as rigid as a solid commercial pole [which are considerably more expensive as well]. Consequently there is more give and sway during high winds. Nothing to be alarmed with, but certainly noticeable with a pole of this height. Definitely recommend this product if you are looking to display and honor the American flag.
I highly recommend this flag pole. It was very simple to install and looks great. The flag seems to be fairly good quality also. I know time will tell as far as durability.
We followed the installation instructions and had no problems what-so-ever. It was a beautiful addition to our front yard and we take great pleasure in it's appearance. The included flag itself appears to be of high value.
This flagpole came complete with nylon rope, pulley, and a gold aluminim ball for the top of the pole. The entire flagpole turns with the wind so the flag does not wrap around the pole. The bottom of the pole has a sleeve that enables the pole to turn with the wind. I used a 6" posthole digger to dig a 21" deep hole, then placed 3 inches of stone in the bottom of the hole for drainage. I placed the 4' section (with the sleeve) in the center of the hole, then poured in concrete, being careful it only touches the sleeve, not the pole because if the concere touches the pole it will not turn in the wind.
The flag is impressive, being made of 100% nylon with embroidered stars. After seeing reviews on how the PVC poles snapped off at the 2 or 3 ft level, I decided to go with aluminum. To give the pole some extra support, I installed a 10 ft of 1 1/4" I.D. PVC pipe inside the lower 10 ft of the aluminum pole. To reduce the chance of the flagpole being stolen, I secured the 4 ft sections together with 1/2" rustproof sheetmetal screws. I followed the very clear and illustrated directions from start to finish and it took about minutes to assemble it, including combining sections with screws.
Finally, I like this flagpole better than a PVC my friend paid $280 for installed.
I installed a length of pcv pipe inside the pipe to make it more resiliant to wind.
A neighbor purchased one and it 'kinked' near the bottom during a really windy day.
It's still a good product for the price.
Flag pole is great. Wish the joints were a little tighter. I will never use Site to Store shipping again. Way to slow. On the last stage of the route it took 3 days for my package to travel 57 miles.
I purchased this for my dad, to replace snapped flag pole. We had been doing research online and not only did he LOVE the price of this kit (we couldnt find anything for less than $200) he said the quality of this product exceeded his expectations! He was also doubly happy that he didnt have to pull out the portion of existing pole left in ground. It was long enough to support one of the new sections. He just placed in over what was there and added 3 others. He was very happy that the manufacturer thought to make each piece fit into each other since he couldnt use all pcs. (it would have been too high) Only thing he had to do was change where the rope holder thingy was located but that was because of his unique situation. He feels anyone who buys this product for their house would not be disappointed.
I shopped for this item at various sites and found that Walmart was nearly the least expensive. I considered the low shipping cost and knowing that I was guaranteed that the product would be as Walmart described and knowing it would be delivered quickly made my decision easy. Good value for the money.
simple instructions to follow. I used 1 - 60 lb bag of ready mix cement mixed with water in a wheel barrow. (added this as i have seen the question asked before) also made my hole using a 6 inch hand post hole digger 28 " deep . let the cement setup over night before installing the rest of the flagpole. . the flag is American made and stitched the pole and other parts are imported. the flag pole has with stood some strong Michigan winds over the last month . the unit flex's a bit more then old wood flag pole it replaced . but the old flag pole was a solid white pine cut 25 years ago and planted into the ground as a flag pole . the new pole is a 5 pc hollow metal aluminum tube .I'm sure will out last the pine tree it replaced .
We love our 20 Foot Patriot U.S Flagpole Set and would recommend to everyone. We have received several great comments from our neighbors - they love it as much as we do......
lot's of flex in this pole. i have 3x5 cotton flags and when there is sufficient breeze to hold the flag out the pole flexes a good three feet at the top. there was (and is) a lot of slop where the sections come together. as a previous reviewer recommended, i taped the male parts of the joints. this helped, but still a lot of movement in this pole. i feel i will have to be more wary of the winds than i would like. i conditionally recommend this product but with a polyester flag that requires less wind.
The turnaround on this pole was quick. It came with a nice flag so there is no need to buy one. When assembled it looks nice. I'm glad it is American made.
However, the pole sections did not form a very tight fit. I used tape on the male ends to help fix that but it did not completely solve the problem. I still find the sections trying to come apart when I tie the flag off and there is an awful lot of sway on this pole in just light winds.
Bottom line: Good looking pole with a quick turnaround but not the best for function.
Very easy to set up. Looks great when up--the only thing that is a little negative is that the top of the pole waves in the wind too when it's blowing hard. All in all though--it's great! We've been asked by many where we purchased this.
