May 22,2004 – San Diego, CA – 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 kit is available at 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.
