How to choose the perfect rope for the flagpole

Do you know the noise that the wire of the hoist makes on the masts when a strong wind blows? If you buy a Lipumastid with an internally guided line, you are not familiar with this noise. On a flagpole with an internal line guide, the complete line is inside the flagpole. This is because the flagpole is hollow.

At this point, we therefore exclude the wooden flagpoles. The advantages are obvious – the lifting rope does not hit the pole in windy conditions and therefore cannot annoy the neighborhood. In addition, the lifting device is theft-proof and is protected from rain, cold and humidity.

True romance flag with outside rope guide

Unlike the flagpole with inner rope guide, the hoist is located on the outside of this pole. All materials can be used for this type of flagpole. If it is not fastened tightly enough, the external lifting cable causes the aforementioned rattling noise, which is so typical for many flag devices. By the way, it is possible to achieve a tight fastening, by guiding the lifting rope around the shaft.

What Thickness and Length Should I Choose?

The mast rope thickness is dependent on your mast base diameter. If you measure the base to be about 12” and divide it by 3.14, it is safe to say that your mast diameter is about 4”. You must purchase a length of rope that is twice the height of your mast. A 20′ mast will require a 40′ rope to ensure the rope will pass through the pulley at the top and hang past the clamp at the bottom.


This solid braid flag rope is reinforced with a steel core cable in the center. Cut-resistant makes it a tamper-proof flag halyard. It withstands extreme wind conditions. Made of industrial polyester coating for abrasion resistance and UV, A Strong and Durable flagpole rope is designed for both indoor and outdoor.

How to built the traditional Japanese Garden Stone Paving?

In Japanese culture, the garden is much more than a way to keep the outside area well cared for and perfumes the environment. This type of Zen Space gardening is an art – closely linked to spirituality and symbolism. Do you want to know what the essential elements of a Japanese garden are? 

Mini-pond, artificial waterfalls, and bridges

This element represents life, peace, purity and change. Add it with a mini-pond or an artificial lake or waterfall with rocks. Sound will also help you relax. If your garden includes a mini-pond, the bridge can be positioned over it. It represents evolution, self-knowledge and adaptation, if made of bamboo.

Lanterns, trees and plants

Made of wood or stone, they help to illuminate at night. The lamps are in the shape of a temple, with five parts that represent earth, water, fire, air and spirit. Japanese gardens emphasize green plants without colorful flowers. Good options are the tree of happiness, the Acer, and, if you like flowers, the magnolia.

Paved and cobblestones

Associated with knowledge, longevity and eternity, Tänavakivi installation is essential in the Japanese garden, in two different compositions – a mosaic path of stones with a uniform top, and with irregular and farther stones that call for attention to the path. Cobblestones and sand permeate the entire garden: while the latter can be arranged to create a Zen space, the former symbolize the mountains when large and can even be added to the waterfalls, representing family and ancestors.

Bamboos: it represents a symbol

Bamboo is one of the strongest eastern signs, and teaches how to bow in the face of problems, without breaking, and then rise again. Bamboo structures can be placed to delimit the garden, or else curved towards the lake, as a sign of reverence.

Now that you know what the most important elements of a Japanese garden are to be inspired, use your intuition to define the components of your Zen space.
