Selecting the correct base for Teardrop Banners, Feather Flags & Rectangle Flags is important to ensure you can use them anywhere you want. All of our bases fit on all of our flag poles, so you can purchase multiple bases to allow you to use your flags at any event or location.
1. Ground Spike: This is our most popular base which allows you to stand the flag up on soft surfaces, such as grass or dirt areas, garden beds & sand at the beach.
2. Folding Cross Base with Water Bag: This base allows you to use your flags on hard surfaces, such as indoors on carpet or outdoors on concrete. We find this model to be very easy to transport as you can simply drain the Water Bag once you have finished displaying the flag and the legs of the base fold together. The Water Bag is heavy duty and when filled with water (it can hold 2.6 gallons of water) it weighs 22 lbs and the Cross Base weighs an additional 7 lbs - so it provides great stability for the flags in most conditions. As the water bag is so heavy when filled it is important that it is not dropped, as the impact could split the bag open.
3. Premium Cross Base: A great base to choose when using your flags outdoors. The flat steel cross pieces are powdercoated black for a great finish and to provide resistance to the elements. This base can be used both on hard surfaces or on dirt - as the cross pieces have 4 x 10mm diameter holes which allow you to secure them to the ground using tent pegs. The base is 32” wide so provides great stability for your flags and then the 2 cross pieces just fold together for easy transportation.
4. 30 Deg and 0 Deg Wall Brackets. These bases are perfect if you have a set location at the front of your store or on a fence that you will be putting your flags out on each day. These brackets are designed to be permanently screw fixed to a wall or fence and allow you to simply take the flag on and off each day. There are two options available, our 0 degree bracket allows the flag to sit straight up, the 30 degree option allows the flag to point out on an angle. The size of the base plate on the wall brackets is 4” x 4” with hole centres 2.7” apart.
5. U-Shaped Car Base. This is a very popular option for car yards and real estate agents. This base simply slides under a car tyre and is locked into placed by the tyre so your flag is very stable.
6. Heavy Duty Square Base - 3 size options: 11 lbs, 15 lbs, and 22 lbs: These bases have a clean flat finish which minimizes the tripping risk - so they are perfect for outside shops and in heavy pedestrian traffic areas. We have tested the stability of each size for outdoor use and recommend the following sizes for our Teardrop Banners, Feather Flags and Rectangle Flags:
- 11 lbs: (15” x 15” x 10mm): Recommended for Small size only - not suitable for other sizes
- 15 lbs: (16” x 16” x 10mm): Recommended for Medium size - also suitable for Small size
- 22 lbs (19” x 19” x 10mm): Recommended for Large and Jumbo sizes - but also suitable for Small and Medium sizes
7. Vertical Floor Bracket. This base is very similar in appearance to the Wall Brackets but the spindle points straight up. This allows you to install it permanently to a solid surface where you would otherwise use one of the Cross Bases or Heavy Duty Square Base.
