FLAG FITTINGS

A guide showing the most commonly used flag fittings & clips to attach flags to a flagpole rope or halyard. The word halyard is a marine term meaning, a rope used to hoist and lower a sail or flag. Below we detail the features and benefits of various flag fitting types along with how to professionally join a flagpole rope.   



Flag Clips Standard Nylon UV Resistant

Standard Flag Clips

Today these flag clips are most commonly used, they are also called sister clips. Made from high quality UV resistant nylon, they offer excellent durability and low halyard noise when hoisted. Simply attach one to each flag loop and two on the flagpoles rope via a basic hitch knot, connect together and hoist your flag. The tension between the flag and rope should be slightly loose, allowing flags to fly.     



Flagpole Snap Clip Nylon UV Resistant

Flagpole Snap Clips

Flag snap clips are used for simple fast flag hoisting, along with flags fitted with eyelets. These economical nylon snap clips offer excellent durability and low halyard noise when hoisted. Simply attach two clips to the flagpole's rope via a basic hitch knot and snap on to both flag loops, and hoist your flag. The tension between the flag and flag clips should be slightly loose allowing flags to fly easily.



Flagpole Rope Swivel Clips Nylon UV Resistant

Flag Swivel Clips

Flag swivel clips made from durable UV resistant nylon, are the same as standard flag clips except that one clip has a unique swivel feature, thus reducing flagpole rope twisting and fatigue. Simply attach one standard flag clip to each flag loop and two swivel clips to the flagpoles rope via a basic hitch knot, then connect together and hoist your flag. The tension between the flags header and flagpoles rope should be slightly loose allowing flags to catch the breeze and easily fly. 



Flagpole Screw Lock Security Clips UV Resistant

Flag Screw Lock Clips

Flag screw lock clips, also called flag security shackels, are also made from high quality UV resistant nylon. Their purpose is to reduce the ease of flag removal from a flagpole halyard via a stainless steel screw, locking the shackle shut. Flags can be easily changed with the use of a special screw driver. Simply attach two screw lock clips to the flagpoles rope via a basic hitch knot, connect each flag loop and lock the clip shut via the screw & hoist your flag. The tension between the flags header and flagpoles rope should be slightly loose allowing flags to fly. 



Flag Clips Standard Steel Flagpole Sister Clips

Metal Flag Clips

Traditional metal or steel flag clips have been used for many years. They offer high strength and are commonly used in the restoration of period timber flagpoles or, as original replacement flag clips. Although this type of flag clip is very strong, eventually they rust and wear out. Metal flag clips have poor wear resistance & can leave flags marked with rust after rain. Simply attach one to each flag loop and two on the flagpoles rope via a basic hitch knot, connect together and hoist your flag. Tension between the flag and rope should be loose allowing flags to fly.



Flagpole Clips Standard 316 Stainless Steel

Flag Clips Stainless Steel


Stainless steel 316 marine grade flag clips the most corossion resistant type of flag clips available. Suitable for flagpoles in coastal locations, or prone to high winds, super strong, durable long life flag clips. Simply attach two clips to the flags loops and two clips to the flagpoles rope via, a basic hitch knot and slide together and hoist your flag. The tension between the flags header and flag clips should be slightly loose allowing flags to easily catch the breeze and fly correctly.




Flagpole Clips for Large Flags Stainless Steel suits 6mm 8mm 10mm Flagpole Rope

Flag Clips For Large Flags


Large flags require super high strength 316 stainless steel flag clips, due to the phyisical weight of these flags and the excessive wind forces, that they can be subjected to. These flag clips also have excellent corossion resistance. Ideal for flagpoles in coastal arears, durable long life flag clips suitable for 6mm - 8mm or 10mm flagpole rope sizes. Simply attach two clips to the flag and two clips to the flagpoles rope via, a basic hitch knot and slide together and hoist your flag. The tension between the flag clips should be slightly loose so flags to can easily fly.




Flagpole Security Wire Cable Stainless Steel Flag Clips

Flag Clips Flagpole Security Wire


Specially designed security type stainless steel flag clips, with wire flagpole rope and stainless steel wire grips. These flag clips are widely used to deter vandals from flag theft, where flags may be flown constantly overnight on external type  flagpole halyards.

Stainless steel flag snap clips are used for fast interchangable flag hoistings, as well as flags fitted with eyelets. These highly durable clips are made from marine grade 316 stainless steel, which is the hardest most corossion resistant type of clip. Widely used by the Royal Australian Navy and yachting industry, they are ideal for flagpoles near coastal locations, or simply for their high strength and long life. Simply attach two clips to the flagpoles rope via a basic knot and snap on to both flag loops and hoist your flag.

How To Attach Flag Clips


One of the most simple ways of fitting or attaching flag clips to a flagpole rope, is via a hitch knot. Once the flag clips are tied this type of knot is easilly adjustable if needed to suit all required flag sizes and flag header tensioning. This type of flagpole rope tying method is detailed above with all flagpole rope instructions. 

Left of picture: shows a basic loop formed and thread through the flag clips eye.  
Middle of picture: Shows this loop being drawn back over the flag clip towards the flagpole rope.

Right of picture: shows loop drawn back and tightened creating a finished knot.
        



How to Join A Flagpole Rope By Adwareflags.com

How To Join A Flagpole Rope

Firstly the most important factor regarding the life of any flagpole rope is to use the highest quality marine grade double braided polyester rope. This type of rope is super strong, naturally UV resistant, repels water and will out last any other. 

Top of picture shows a flagpole rope that has been joined using a flagpole rope joiner, also called a flagpole rope crimp or flagpole rope splice clip.

Middle of picture shows a heat shrink tube, used to cover any sharp edges that a rope splice clip may have, thus preventing wear to flagpole finishes and possible cuts to hands when hoisting and lowering your flags.

Bottom of picture shows finished  joined flagpole rope with heat shrink cover.

Directions: First make sure your flagpole rope is heat cut to your required length leave some extra, as most ropes shrink over time due to outdoor exposure, then slide a piece of heat shrink tube over one end of the rope before crimping.

Next place each end of the rope in the splice clip making sure that the ends of the rope are slightly pertruding and have been heat sealed by hot knife or lighter. Then, using pliers or multi grips, crimp the splice clip evenly down over each rope end completely with no gaps, so it will fit inside the heat shrink tube. 

Finally slide the heat shrink tube evenly over the crimped flagpole rope joiner and apply heat via a lighter, heat gun or butane gas torch. Make sure, as you heat it, to keep the tube turning as it starts to shrink down over the flagpole rope joiner. Do not apply any direct end flame to the shrink tube or flagpole rope, use heat from the side of the flame otherwise it can melt or discolour.
