What is a truck? It is the top part of the flagpole commonly known as the pulley. All flagpoles have specific trucks or pulleys that are better for their use. Smaller flagpoles or sectional flagpoles often use the eyebolt and pulley system or a side mount pulley for the halyard (rope). Larger flagpoles use a truck unit that houses the pulley within its cast aluminum frame. Revolving trucks or rotating trucks allow the flag and halyard freedom of movement with the wind. The ideal is that the flag will not wrap up on the flagpole. The cap mount revolving truck allows you to convert and pole into a functional flagpole in a snap. The cast aluminum truck cap will fit over the shaft and is secured by three (3) stainless steel set screws. The top is designed to swivel on the ¬º” axle and ball bearings. The top of the truck also has a-1/2″ threaded receiver for the ornament of your choice.
If your tired of your flag always wrapping around the flagpole, try our 2″ diameter cap mount revolving truck. The nylon sheave (pulley) is ideal for halyard up to 5/16″.
