2015 new year's resolutions, part 2 of 4

American flag resolutions, noble and easy

Happy 2015! We have started 2015 right, and are sending the message that worthwhile resolutions don’t necessarily have to be difficult resolutions. We are proposing four American flag resolutions this month, each of which is easy to achieve.

Your American flag offers you ample opportunity to extend a small amount of care and achieve great, lasting results. Here is another 2015 American flag resolution.

Resolution #2: Prepare for flag snap maintenance

It is no secret that flag snap hooks wear out more quickly than any other item in the flag pole assembly. The reason is simple: they interact with more moving parts than anything else. They scrape and bang against the flagpole, they rub against the halyard rope and they twist around the grommets in the flag. Wear and tear on flag snap hooks is unavoidable.

What can be avoided is the irreparable flag damage that would occur if a flag snap were to deteriorate to the point of breaking. As such, flag snap hooks should be checked regularly, we recommend at least once every 90 days, and replaced as necessary. It is also best to keep a backup set on hand to avoid any delays in changing damaged snap hooks.
