Our compact fibreglass poles are great for temporary displays of windsocks, flags and banners.
Extending Your Pole
Remove the rubber bung from the top of the pole, gently tilt the pole until the sections inside begin to appear. Locate the smallest section with the metal ring on top and start pulling this section out. As the pole is telescopic each section will be pulled out by the one above it. When you get to a join pull it tight and give it a little twist to secure it.
Take care when handling your spike. Each spike is cleaned before leaving us, but occasionally people with sensitive skin are susceptible to the odd loose fibre. You need to get the spike about 30cm into the ground, if you are using more than one spike group them together. If you put a little block of wood over the top you can very often just push them in using your body weight, if not use a rubber mallet.
Then extend your pole, unscrew the cap on the bottom and put the pole over the spike(s). This allows your pole to be freemoving which helps stop flags/windsocks tangling.
Button Bungees For Flags
Put the loop of the bungee through the eyelet on your flag, if you want your flag on a thin part of your pole you may need to go around and through the eyelet again. Take the flag to your pole, put the remaining loop one side of the pole, the ball the other and loop the loop over the ball. Repeat with the second bungee.
Care Of Poles And Windsocks
Obviously your poles and windsocks are predominately for summer use and are not designed to stand up to harsh conditions. All poles should be collapsed during any extreme wind or storm conditions. If you are camping and suspect the weather might change overnight it is better to collapse the pole before going to bed than spend the next morning searching the campsite for your windsock!
The swivels and ball bearings on the windsocks do a lot of work spinning hard through a summer. Small metal parts need some maintenance to prolong life and avoid seizing up, apply a small amount of light oil to swivels, ball bearings and moving parts at regular intervals.
