External Halyard Flagpole Diagram

External Halyard Flagpoles expose the rope halyard on the outside of the flagpole shaft.

External Halyard Systems

External Halyard Flagpoles utilize flagpole trucks with an exposed pulley, rope halyard and flagpole cleat. If budget is a concern, External Halyard Flagpoles are the most affordable as well as most popular for both residential and commercial flagpole projects. These flagpoles range in height from 20 ft to 80 ft.


External Trucks

An external truck sits at the top of the flagpole, providing a pulley system for rope halyard.

Options include include stationary trucks, which are fixed and will not rotate, and revolving trucks, which rotate with the wind. A double revolving truck is also available and includes an extra cleat and complete double halyard assembly.

External Single Revolving Truck - Spindle Design Example

Spindle Design

Spindle Design Trucks incorporate a threaded spindle which is installed into a female fitting welded into the top of the flagpole.

Revolving Trucks rotate the flag with the wind.

Cap Design Trucks install over the top of the flagpole and are attached with anchoring set screws or bolts.

Stationary Trucks are fixed and will not rotate.


Internal Halyard Flagpoles

Internal Halyard Flagpole Diagram

Internal Halyard Flagpoles keep the rope or wire halyard inside the flagpole shaft and thus have a more streamlined appearance.

Cam Cleat Systems

Cam Cleat Systems incorporate rope halyard secured in place by a heavy-duty cam action cleat. These flagpoles require additional components compared to external halyard flagpoles including an access door, cam cleat to hold the rope halyard, retainer ring, counterweight, and internal halyard truck. Cam Cleat Systems range from 20 ft to 40 ft.

Cam Cleat Internal System
Winch Systems

Winch Systems use wire halyard (i.e. stainless steel cable) with a gearless winch and winch handle to raise and lower the flag. Winch Systems are the most expensive type of flagpole. Their components including a winch, winch handle, retainer ring, counterweight, internal flagpole truck, and flag arrangement. Winch System Flagpoles range from 20 ft to 100 ft.

Shaft Descriptions and Options

Mounting Height
Mounting Height

The exposed height in feet above grade and is measured to the top of the of the flagpole shaft. *When truck and ornaments are added, overall height can be greater by 1'-2', which can be relevant in areas with height ordinances. Upon request and at no additional charge, Mounting Heights can be shortened to achieve the desired overall height.

25' Mounting Height Exception
25' Mounting Height Exception

Flagpoles offered in 25' mounting heights are manufactured in a single piece with an overall length of 26'-6". Below grade, 2'-6" will be inserted into the ground sleeve. When the truck and finial are attached, the nominal height of the completed flagpole will be 25'. This industry accepted standard allows shipping in a pup trailer at a significant freight savings. Full 27'-6" shafts are available upon request.

Butt Diameter
Butt Diameter

The diameter in inches at the base of the shaft.

Top Diameter
Top Diameter

The diameter in inches at the very top of the shaft.

Wall Thickness
Wall Thickness

The thickness of the shaft in inches, varying from .125" to .500".

Single and Multi-Piece Shafts
Single & Multi-Piece Shafts

Flagpoles are available in both single and multi-piece designs. Flagpoles 45' and larger will contain multiple piece shafts based on Mounting Height. Sections can be easily field assembled without any loss of structural integrity, leaving only a hairline joint to indicate that the shaft is not a single piece flagpole.
