You have me thinking of doing a flag pole myself. I would like a fat butt diameter and tall, just how much ??? Now I understand the revolving truck at the top, but don't understand why the single or double pulley ? And the haliard (rope) is that single or a complete loop tied together ? And could I use an old lamp post (tapered) with an adapter or better just to find a flag pole ? Another thought is the internal rope type, if some SOB comes and cuts the rope, I'm no flag pole climber.

It doesn't revolve, it's stationary.

but don't understand why the single or double pulley ?


Two flags I would assume, no wind an they will lay nice?

It's tied in a loop, the snaps are easily removed. Put a loop of rope through the snap loop and over the snap end.

There are double pulley trucks that revolve, reguardless one would oppose the wind in that case, and you fly the another below so why the need. If someone cuts one and not the other you would be good to go. :roll:
