Whether you’re cheering on your favorite sports team or adding a bit of curb appeal, getting a flag from your front porch is easy to do.

Here’s how to get started:

Purchase a Bracket

Flag bracket holders are easy to find at your local home improvement store or online through sites like Amazon. For a more permanent, durable solution install a bracket made of galvanized steel.

Pick your Location

Find an area that is away from tree branches, gutters or other items that could easily snag your flag. If you have a porch with wood posts, this is a great place! Prefer to hang your flag vertically? If it has keyholes, hang it from a window or overhang by installing cup hooks. Just make sure it’s easy to take down on days with stormy weather.

Secure the Bracket

To screw in the flag holder, you’ll need a power drill that can drill into your house’s siding or sheathing. Note: If you have brick siding, you’ll need a masonry bit. Make sure you drill holes into the brick (not the mortar).

Hang your Flag!

Slide the flagpole into the bracket, and make sure it fits snug. That’s it!
