In our 36 years we’ve seen some crazy and interesting repair work. From zip ties used for snap hooks, climbing rope for external halyard rope, and winches put in upside down. The latest bit of handy work takes the cake! Why buy a new counterweight when you can weld a screw to the top of it and a quirk link??? Don’t do this because it presents a variety of bad things that could happen, instead call Rocky Mountain Flag Company and get a new one.
