The TANKTM US Flag
At left: This picture says it all. Just take a look that the
wall thicknesses of these two poles. The TANK pole
is on the left. A standard 1" aluminum pole is on the right. The TANK has a one piece 6' highly polished silver aluminum
pole with an unprecedented wall thickness of 1/8".
At right: Look at this moose of a bracket. Highly polished
solid aluminum "star bracket" is extra strong. Its unique design sets it apart
from any bracket we've seen. It comes with 1.5" mounting screws.
It protrudes out from the wall about 3
3/8", the barrel is about 3.5" deep.
The precision machined gold anodized solid aluminum ball
ornament is threaded on to the top of the flagpole and is secured with a
stainless steel set screw.
Notice the anti-furl collar system. Your flag attaches to the
collar with the split ring. The flag is not fixed to the pole, it is attached to
the collar that rotates around the pole. Each collar is held in place
with three allen head set screws. An allen head wrench is included with each
IF YOUR GOAL IS TO HAVE THE MOST EFFECTIVE ANTI WRAP FLAGPOLE,
DO NOT GET THIS KIT. Every kit has an advantage and disadvantage. It's
advantage is strength. The Tank kit has the highest tech machined look and many find its precision ornament, gleaming finish and designer
bracket the preferred choice. The antiwrap system is OK but not as
effective as the sleeved kit system directly below:
- Aluminum pole, 6' x 1" diameter, 1/8" wall thickness
- Solid aluminum ball ornament
- Furl reduction collar with retaining rings
- Hefty star bracket, screws

TRUTH IN ADVERTISING. A word on antiwrap tubes: People hear
the word "antiwrap" and then they expect their flag never to wrap. There are
all kinds of antiwrap systems. This is the simplest type there is. It is a
very basic concept and it is hardly foolproof. But for the money and given the
unusually nice quality of the nylon flag in a kit of this price range, it is a
lovely value. Ball bearing systems are far better but much more costly. We
sell two types of those also.
