18-inch white beaded retainer ring. Retainer rings are generally used with internal halyard flagpoles by providing a means of keeping the bottom of the flag close to the flagpole and as an aid to raise and lower the flag.
Retainer rings can also be used on large multi-grommet flags on both external and internal halyard flagpoles as a means to keep the flags close to the pole and reduce the strain on the upper and lower grommets of the flag.
These beaded rings are constructed of either 1 inch or a combination of 1 inch and 2-inch diameter nylon balls strung onto 1/8-inch stainless steel aircraft cable with a stainless-steel thimble attached to the end with two copper crimps. Complete with stainless steel quick link.
The length of each retainer ring is determined by measuring from outside tip of each thimble (the quick link is not included in the measurement).
