Flying your flag is a SNAP! . . . with this simple guide

Flag snaps are a small but essential part of displaying your flag outdoors. 

Fag snaps literally hook your flag to the flagpole rope and keep it from flying away. 

Deciding which snap to use can sometimes get confusing. 

Using the wrong type of snap can cause premature damage to your flag or flagpole, and using a snap that is not rated for the proper flag size can cause the snap to break . . . and your flag to be left flying loose in the wind.

So which snap is the best choice for your flag? 

Choose the right Flag Snap

LIBERTY FLAGS offers three types of Flag Snaps, making it simple to find the one that is perfect for your needs.

  • Nylon Snaps

    Nylon hooks are an economical choice and often preferred for residential settings over metal hooks that "clang" on the flagpole. Nylon snaps are suitable for flags 3’ x 5’ or smaller.
In a commercial setting, you will want a more secure snap.
  • Brass Snaps

    Brass snaps are used for rigging flags with brass grommets. It is important to note that if you use a stainless steel with a brass grommet, it will cause premature damage to your flag. The various sizes available will accommodate flags ranging from 3’ x 5’ – 30’ x 60’
  • Stainless Steel Snaps

    Stainless steel swivel snaps are recommended for flags sized 8'x12' and larger made with a roped heading and galvanized stainless-steel thimbles.
