Its Always Great When We Can Help With A Last Minute Flag Request For a Great Organization!

youth haven

A 51-year-old Barrie woman with a heart condition has returned from Tanzania after climbing to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for the local charity Youth Haven, an organization that supports homeless kids.

“I’ve done tonnes of outdoor activities, and tonnes of times I pushed myself to my limits, but this was beyond anything I could’ve comprehended,” said Debra Bobechko.

“It’s not a mountain to be trifled with.”

External And Internal Halyard Flagpole Explained

Ever wonder what the difference is between an Internal and External halyard on a flagpole?

An External Halyard Flagpole System places the rope on the outside of the flagpole. The rope is exposed on the outside of the flagpole and travels through the truck at the top of the flagpole. An external cleat completes the rigging allowing the halyard to be tied off at about 4 1/2′ from the base of the flagpole. This enables ease of operation allowing the flag to be displayed and move up and/or down as required.

The Internal Halyard Flagpole System conceals the rope on the inside of the flagpole. Internal Halyard flagpoles are more expensive than comparable external halyard flagpoles but they offer a more streamlined look and security. The rope is in the inside of the flagpole and travels up and out of the truck at the top of the flagpole. The rope  is secured near the bottom of the flagpole with a cam cleat . The rigging is accessible and controlled after unlocking an access door.
