Retainer rings are used with internal halyard flagpoles and keep the bottom of the flag close to the pole. They are also used as an aid to raise and lower the flag. Retainer rings can be used on large multi-grommet flags on both external and internal halyard flagpoles to keep the flags close to the pole and reduce strain on the upper and lower grommets of the flag. These roped retainer rings are made of 3/16" nylon wire center halyard with a zinc plated carbon steel thimble attached to one end with an aluminum crimp. Complete with stainless steel quick link. Please be sure to have the correct butt diameter of your flagpole on hand when figuring out which retainer ring you need. Choose from white, silver, bronze #313 and black.
I had to go with this product as we have rope arresters halfway up the pole. If you can, splurge and get the beaded rings as the metal rope catches to easily on the metal pole.
They do come in handy
