How do you attach the flag? There is a blue rubber piece near the top third of the pole that doesn't seem to move. If I can slide it down, then the glad will fit. Should the rubber piece slide? Thanks.
spit on it...move it
Sorry for the delay in responding...we end up having to wrap a bit of electrical tape to the top of the pole after we put the flag on to keep it from sliding off. If I recall correctly, the blue clip broke when we initially tried moving it to slip the flag over. The tape works fine so it's not a big deal. We like the float and flag; it stays upright.
I believe it needed to slide down to work properly as well. I applied some liquid soap to it and it slid it to the proper place.
Thanks, I appreciate it!
you have to warm up the rubber piece with warm (hot) water first, then you can slide it down the pole to the right position
I'm not looking at mine, but from my memory, the rubber piece does slide.
There should be a little plastic half ring on top of the pole. You should be able to pull it off completely. Then you set the flag and then snap the half ring on top of the flag. Hope this helps.
I had the same problem. Dish soap. Don't need much. Takes a little work to get it under the rubber, but once you do it'll slide to what ever position you want.
I then I used fishing line to loop thru the wire on float to the wire groummet to make sure the flag stays attached to the float.
Attach the rope to the bottom where the lead weight is.
Thanks. Asking how to attach the red and white flag.
