Note: Worn halyard should be replaced before complete failure so that it can be used to pull the new halyard through the truck
The rate of halyard wear depends on several factors including flag size, wind conditions, climate and usage. For these reasons we recommend monthly inspections of the halyard for wear.
Polyester and nylon rope halyard should be replaced if there are signs of fraying, tearing, or other visible damage.
Stainless steel cable halyard should be replaced if there are any signs of kinking, fraying or other visible damage.
