On holidays, transform the homes and streets of our cities, appear illuminations, banners and flags, flags, flags… And all that is necessary to assemble, install, and then when come everyday, be removed until the next time. And so every occasion. Hard, exhausting labor.
The proposed device, which, in our view, will simplify and facilitate installation of flags, because not everyone GET and or JACK and a machine-tower and climb ladders.
The fixture is simple in design and in manufacture and does not require high material costs.
It is going on the basis of the telescopic handle from a paint roller maximum length of 1950 mm. If desired, this arm is not difficult to make most suitable of the two dural tubes.
1 – bracket; 2 flag pole; 3 – insert (St3, the circle has ø 14-ø); 4 — grip (plastic plumbing pipe 50×2,5, L380); 5 flag; 6 – M6 bolt (2 PCs); 7 — strip (St3. strip 20×4, L340); 8 — telescopic handle (from a paint roller, L1950); 9 — bolt M6
In the extendable part of the handle is mounted and fixed by a through bolt M6 insertion of a steel rod with a diameter of 14 mm. the Upper end of the insert is beveled at a 45° angle: the same angle on the walls, fixed the brackets to set the flags. The bevel welded strip of steel strip, 4 mm thick, with two holes along the edges for bolts M6. The fixture is crowned by the capture — cut plastic plumbing pipe with a length of 380 mm. throughout the length of the grip is cut a longitudinal groove with a width of about 37 mm.
Due to the elasticity of the pipe the flag pole is inserted into the capture the flag is raised to the desired level, the end of the shaft is introduced into the pipe bracket, after which a slight downward movement the gripper is released from the flag. Dismantling is done in reverse order.
