How to Use Banner Brackets to Keep Kalamazoo Banners Secure


BannerFlex banner brackets are the best banner hardware you can find. Our team at BannerFlex stands by our secure, cost-effective design that will last you for over a decade, and we’re proud to be the premier banner bracket resource throughout Kalamazoo and beyond.

Yet, even the most robust tools will fail when used improperly. That’s why we’re taking today’s blog post to discuss how to use our banner brackets to keep your banners secure for years to come.

Why It’s Important to Secure Your Banner Bracket

The obvious answer to the question “Why is it important to secure my banner bracket?” is: well, so your banner doesn’t fall down. To be more specific, though, it’s critical to secure your banner bracket because of how an unsecured bracket will self-destruct over a long period of time.

Improperly secured banner brackets will move back and forth as the banner they maintain is pushed around in the wind. Despite the hardy metal and fiberglass designs of our banner hardware, time and tension will wear down any material. Just think of the effects of the smallest stream of water on a rock over thousands of years; eventually, even the greatest mountain will split in two.

By merely securing your banner bracket properly, you can avoid this needless damage (and that annoying clanking sound) by minimizing the amount of wear and tear your bracket experiences.

How to Properly Secure Your Banner Bracket

To properly secure your BannerFlex banner brackets, first make sure you have the right tools for the job. In addition to the bracket and hardware you get from us, you’ll need:

  • An Allen Wrench
  • A Hammer
  • Duct Tape
  • Nylon Cable Ties
  • A Screwdriver and/or a Powerdriver

While following along the instructions provided to you for your BannerFlex purchase (or if you don’t have instructions on you, click the link in the paragraph below), make sure the pole you’re attaching it to is cleared of debris and not obstructing traffic or any other area where it could be damaged. You should also keep an eye out to see if your banner “whips” or “flutters” in the wind after installation. If it does, this indicates a serious issue with your banner hardware’s installation.

For more information on how to properly install and secure your BannerFlex banner hardware, please refer to our Hardware Guidebook here.

Now that you have all the resources you need to begin proper installation of your BannerFlex banner brackets, all that’s left to do is procure the right banner hardware for you.
