Halyard Options

A major consideration in flagpole design is the placement of the Halyard used to raise and lower the flag. Options include Internal Halyard Systems which enclose the Halyard behind the security of a lockable access door and External Halyard Systems which place the Rope Halyard on the outside of the flagpole.

Internal Halyard Systems

Winch vs. Cam Cleat

The Flagpole Store offers Internal Halyard designs that are specially designed for the rigorous demands of outdoor flagpole systems.

Winch Systems incorporate a Wire Halyard with a gearless Winch and  a Winch Handle.

Pro Tip - The winch system is recommended if the flagpole is for a commercial application where the person raising and lowering will be someone such as an employee, volunteer, or student. 


Cam Cleat Systems utilize Rope Halyard in a heavy-duty cam action cleat.

Pro Tip - Cam Cleats are a great option to choose for residential flagpole users or where the end user themselves will be the one raising and lowering the flag.
