Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fred Most flag poles don't work well!
Most of these flag poles are of poor design because the flags wrap themselves around the flag poles.
These poles are usually mounted on the front side of garage eaves at an angle. The ones with plastic sleeves are for flags with sleeves. Most flags do not have sleeves, but grommets at each end. The flag poles do not have any way of attaching the bottom grommet to the flag pole. There are no instructions on how to attach the flag properly to the flag pole. There are no instructions on how to prevent flag from wrapping around the flag pole.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1964sox exactly as advertized!
I've been looking for a replacement for my old wooden flag pole for a long time. This one is exactly what I needed; It has a sleeve to prevent the flag from wrapping around the pole in windy conditions and it is quite sturdy and attractive.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ramonv Not big enough, and doesn't work w/ all flags
Ordered online, since Home Depot doesn't sell any flag poles in-store, except those with flags attached.
I have an assortment of 3' x 5' sports team flags I planned to fly from this pole, depending on which team was playing that day.
First of all, the pole had come out of the cheap plastic wrap it comes in. There were no instructions, except for one poorly written sentence on the cardboard part of the packaging.
It said to slide the sleeve of the flag over the pole. Um... my flags don't have sleeves. And then to attach the top of the flag to the clip. Well, I could attach the top loop of the flag to the clip, but since there is no bottom clip, there was no way to attach the bottom of the flag. It looks like maybe I could have unscrewed the screw at the bottom of the plastic anti-wrap tube and put the bottom flag loop through that, and re-screw it, except that would require having a smaller flag (like 28" rather than 36").
It would really help if:
A) Home Depot sold flag poles in their stores so you could see what you're getting.
B) They had a photo of the entire flag pole on-line.
C) They stated what size flags this pole was intended for.
D) They stated what kind of flag this pole was for.
Obviously, this is going back. Glad I had it shipped to store, so I'm not out the shipping cost.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JCZ85 Great features
Flag pole is well made & has plastic sheath that keeps flag from wrapping around pole. Would be better if it was weather proofed but we painted it with spar finish to keep the wood from weathering.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pete Product works after adjusting and cleaning up sloppy workmanship
Had to take it apart and clean up sloppy workmanship right out of the package. Rough edges and unfinished edges did not allow the top swivel and plastic sleeve to move and flag wrapped around the pole. Did not return because it is the only pole I could find with the plastic sleeve. It now works like it should if made correctly. I will make yes on recommendation, but only because it is the only pole with plastic sleeve.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blackjack Very Nice!
This is a very nice Flagpole, sturdy and well made too! Has a plastic tube over the wood pole where the Flag slides over it making it very easy to get the Flag on and off. Also has the closing hook on the end to secure it for windy days. I reccomend you use this everytime you change your Flags out so it doesn't blow off your pole. It's easy the loop flags have a tag inside them at one end (Inside The Loop On One End Of Flag) Just make sure you run the end with tag on it on the pole first then pull the tag inside the loop to the hook and attach it through a small hole in the tag. This is a Loop Flag Pole Not A Rope Pole so rope flags will not work as they have no loops. Just remember when you buy Flags always make sure they say Loop Flags! The perfect size Loop Flag for this pole is 28x40. But any size Loop Flag will work it's just my preference on the larger size. Of course you will need a Flag Pole Holder and i suggest a Multiposition Flag Pole Holder so you can adjust it to the best position that you like the flag to be. I have mine on the outer part of my deck rail in the front of my house and i love it there! Hope this review helps.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Streak Not for an AMERICAN flag!
The information on-line was not accurate.
It was not for an AMERICAN flag.
This pole is for a "holiday flag" with a sleeve.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by armand Takes a special flag and not 1" diameter
I had installed a flag pole holder that took a 1" flag pole so I ordered this pole to fit - but it didn't. The flagpole is somewhere between 3/4" and 7/8" diameter and wouldn't fit solidly in the holder. The pole has a rotating tube with a clip at the top and nothing to hold a flag at the bottom. The best I can figure out is that it must require a flag with a pocket instead of grommets. I returned it.
