Patent Number: 7,707,960

Title: Flag restraint

Abstract: An apparatus for the prevention of flag entanglement upon a flagstaff that is comprised of a specifically milled wood block which acts as an attaching mechanism to the flagstaff and is the hinge point for a metal rod that is attached to the flag. The hinge point of the block allows the rod to swing in a 180 degree arc from the 90 degrees to 270 degrees. The length of the rod being equal to or greater than the width of the flag in conjunction with the hinge block action prevents the flag from flipping over and tangling on the staff.
