Two inventors - a father and son-in-law team - hope to end the frustration that many flag lovers experience when their flags get wrapped around a flag pole - and don't fly proudly

An 80 year old WW II veteran, after years of effort, invented a low cost flag untangling kit that can be added to existing flag poles to help Americans keep their flags fully displayed instead of wrapping around the pole.

Many Americans continue to display the flag in support of America and American troops. The lightest wind quickly wraps wall mounted flags around the pole instead of waving freely in the wind. This tangling and wrapping of flags around the pole has frustrated many proud and supportive Americans including a couple of former aerospace engineers. One of these former aerospace engineers, Alan Laird, is a retired 80 year old from Mission Viejo, California. He worked for several years to perfect the Flag Free kit. A number of his neighbors purchased the kit and are pleased with the easy assembly and effectiveness of the kit. The design is a simple approach of letting the flag fly free allowing it to also stay untangled.

The news of this invention was front page in Rancho Bernardo ( http://www.pomeradonews.com/stories/2004/q2/06_17_04/news/flag.htm ).

The kit is available at http://www.flagfree.com and 858.592.0607. Flag Free's k1001 kit is US made and quickly attaches to existing wall mount ¾” diameter poles. The low cost kit is under $15 and includes a money back guarantee.
