External vs.
Internal Halyards

When choosing a design for your flagpole project, the first consideration is the placement of the Halyard (rope or wire) used to raise and lower the flag.

An External Halyard System is the most common flagpole application and places Rope Halyard on the outside of the flagpole.

An Internal Halyard System encloses either Rope or Wire Halyard inside the flagpole behind the security of a lockable access door.
