What’s It For?

It was time for a new American flag. Off to Home Depot….normally I go to Lowe’s….however Home Depot had better selection and quality.

The flag and pole are from Valley Forge Flag Co….nicely made….except there was a round plastic collar on the pole with a plastic set screw.

What’s it for? There is nothing on the printed material nor on the web site, as to what the function is of the plastic collar. There is an anti-wrap ring with a metal clip….to which the flag is attached.

Now it doesn’t really matter….the flag looks good.

Yet….does Valley Forge Flag Co look at their products from the eyes of the cutomer?….not in this case….otherwise we would know the purpose of the plastic collar.
