What Are Some Suggestions To Make Putting The Flagpole Sections Together Easier
- Coat both joint surfaces with liquid soap, along with water to dilute the soap. This cuts friction and allows for easy clean-up. Don't use any kind of oil. It is difficult to clean the oil off of the pole after connecting the joints.
- Warm temperatures cause the aluminum to expand making the joint tight. Put a bag of ice on the male section of the joint for a few minutes to cool the pole. This will cause the aluminum to contract so the joint will fit together better.
