    Whatever you decide, please fly the flag properly by illuminating it at night or take it down at sunset. Thank you!

    This!

    I bought a 6000 Lumen LED flood with a dusk to dawn sensor built in to replace my costly halite lighting and put one in the back yard to light up the night.

    Also, please keep your flag in good shape and when it gets tattered and torn, fold it up properly and drop it off at your local American Legion for proper disposal.

    Things you must consider, will you be flying 2-3x5's, or 1 -3x5 & and 4x6 or 5x8.

    Just to give a insight, my pole got slightly bent from flying a 5x8 U.S. flag and a 3x5 Indiana State Flag from a 70mph wing gust that also snapped a 20 foot
    telescoping pole. I now fly a 4x6 and a 3x5, and my telescopic pole no longer has a flag on it, but I have wireless 3n1 weather station on it (wind speed/temp/humidity).


    I bought my pole from Triple AAA Specialties, for $1000 back in 2004, it is anchored in a 4 foot PVC Schedule 80 tube in concrete, the pole is placed in the tube and packed/filled with sand to keep the pole in place.

    It was placed in sand so that if the pole needs to be serviced or leveled vertically again (like mine being slightly bent) it can be done with very little trouble. BTW, Triple AAA came out about 2 months ago, took the pole out, replaced my halyard rope because it was broke, re-installed the pole and corrected the kilter from the slight bend for only $100.00
    Good to know. I am in same area as you from looking at your location, and at the home we just purchased this time last year, I inherited a flag pole. It's lit, with dusk till dawn sensor, and has an American flag flying. To be honest I have not checked it out a lot, but doesn't appear to have any rope, etc to lower the flag, so it appears to be a sectioned or telescoping pole. In any case for future reference is this the place https://www.aspecialties.us/flagpoles/ ? I'll have to look into them if I end up needing any maintenance, etc.

    I probably need to look at some new flags, etc. I understand previous homeowner used to fly various flags depending on time of year, etc. I first need to figure out how the section or telescoping even works on it.

    I do not live in the country, do have a HOA but find that I like to take down the flagpole in inclement weather as well. Their website is here: https://www.uncommonflagpoles.com/co...flagpoles.html
    I second or 3rd Uncommon USA. Bought at the Home Show and think I saved a few Bucks. Set up to Fly 2 Flags, have flown 5X8 without a Problem. The Taller the Better IMO, mine is either 20' or 25' Easy Install, no ropes or pulleys.

    Had the residential version installed at our old house, out in the middle of know where with hardly a tree in sight for blocking the wind. Easy to put up and down. Never bent, even in the gnarliest of wind conditions with 2 flags on it.
    Opinions may vary, , it is the internets.

    Either, there are buttons needing pushed in to let the pole telescope, or it's a twist type where you twist one section to loosen/tighten it.

    Yep, I think there are buttons. Just not sure if it telescopes or comes apart in sections. Will have to take a look.
