Fixating the flagpole: ground socket or hinged base plate

There are a lot of options to fixate a flagpole. And not all possibilities are equally suitable for all kinds of flagpoles. We will illustrate different kinds of fixating flag poles and explain which flagpole it is appropriate for.

Fixating a flagpole by

  • the ground socket

Fixing a flagpole by using a ground socket is probably the most popular type of fixating flagpoles. For this type of fixation you need a fundament, in which the ground socket is set in concrete. Then put the flagpole in the ground socket. This type of fixation is particularly suitable for high flagpoles that do not have to be moved.

  • the hinged base plate

The hinged base plate will also be set in concrete in a fundament. The hinged base plate allows to lay the flagpole and then exchange the flags. The hinged base plate is also appropriate for high flagpoles that are not mobile. It enables an easy exchange of the flag if the flag pole does not have a hoisting mechanism.

  • the Ramma foundation

By means of a special apparatus the Ramma foundation will be hammered into the ground. The advantage: After usage the foundation can be removed again.

  • the wall bracket

Wall brackets can be found in various versions, as straight or diagonal wall bracket. This bracket will be directly attached to a wall or facade. The flagpoles should not be too long, and by no means too heavy, in order to guarantee a stable foothold.

  • the ground screw

The ground screw will simply be screwed to the ground.

  • the car foot

The car foot is the ideal fixation type for mobile flagpoles at outdoor events. The foot is simply weighted (often with a car, hence the name) and the flagpole stands.
