This cast iron flagpole bracket was purchased to replace an aluminum one that broke during the high winds of Hurricane Sandy. It appears to be more substantial and should stand up to high winds. I did not rate it overall excellent because the hole pattern was drilled out of square. Had they been in line, I would have been able to bolt it in place using the holes drilled for the old bracket.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ffls Get RID of the 'aluminum' brackets!!!!!
I've purchased 3 aluminum brackets from Home Depot at the store and ALL 3 broke!!!!
A simple wind of 20-25 mph tears the flag pole right thru the aluminum bracket... they are a WASTE of money...
I purchased this cast iron one online thru Home Depot... ONLY sell cast iron brackets (or equivalent)...
So far so good with the IRON bracket...

Use longer screws than come with item. Also paint the inside of tube before use. The inside of tube will start to rust within days if not painted.
