Snaps or clips are essential pieces of your flagpole hardware. Clips (or snaps) are available in many materials, sizes and styles to meet your flag hardware needs. To attach to the halyard, pinch your halyard into a loop and push the loop through the hole in the snap, pull through and push the whole snap through the loop. When tightened, this will keep your snap from sliding up or down the halyard and your flags can be attached and removed easily. Call or email us anytime for help with your flagpole hardware.
Flagpole Hardware: Halyard
What is the difference between the nylon flagpole halyard and the polypropylene halyard? It's the chemical make up of the materials. For that reason, the polypropylene can be dyed silver, bronze or black and the nylon comes in white. There is no notable difference in durability.
Wire center flagpole halyard is cut to length and usually used on commercial, internal halyard flagpoles. How to determine what size diameter and how much halyard you need for your flagpole: The diameter of the halyard depends on the allowable rope diameter of the pulley on the flagpole. Please confirm this diameter BEFORE purchasing. How long should my halyard be? Typically, this is the height of the flagpole multiplied by two (2). For example: a 30' flagpole, multiply by 2 = 60' of halyard. It is better to have a little extra then not enough. As with many of our flagpole accessories, halyard is available in a range of colors including silver, white, bronze and black.

Typically, you will replace the flagpole halyard every couple of years and other flagpole parts after many years of use or after a damaging event.

Flag hardware, like finials, cleats and caps typically last the lifetime of the flagpole.
