Gentry Motor Company - Repair and Repainting 120ft flagpole

Unique Services & Applications (USA) performed the repairs and repainting of a 120' flagpole. When USA first arrived at the 30' X 60' US Flag was stuck 10' for the top of the flagpole and the winch would not operate because the cable was jammed up. USA rescued the US Flag and then began to determine the problems of the cable system.


USA discovered that the cable inside the truck system was peeling apart creating a mess of jagged cable wrapped into a ball preventing any movement passed the pulleys. USA then removed and replaced the large 14" gold ball/truck combo, stainless steel cable, stainless steel snaps, large weight, 7 retainer rings, and all the stainless steel links and copper crimps. A new connection was made to the existing winch and the whole system was tested for proper operation. Finally, USA applied one full coat of black gloss enamel paint to the entire flagpole. The 30' X 60' US Flag was instructed to be installed 3 days after work was completed to allow for proper time for the paint to cure.
