Conductor562 Posted April 10, 2017 Report Share Posted April 10, 2017 Our house had a 26-28' flag pole in the front yard when we moved in. Problem is, the halyard was gone. We've always planned on restringing it, but just never got around to it. Today I decided to give it a go. Probably not the best day to do it with a 20 mph wind, but we made do. Without getting a lift, there just wasn't a good way to go about it. I've got a 24' ladder, but the pole is pretty wobbly when you get higher up. I basically put a hook on the end of the rope, fed it through the eye bolt at the top, and used another stick with an eye bolt on the end to pull it down. This sounds easier than it was, mostly because of the wind, but it definitely took some trial and error. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
