This Heavy Duty Scissor Base is designed for all conditions, indoor and outdoor. Holes are pre-drilled in the 4 feet to bolt or stake down to prevent the flag from being knocked or blown over. Base can be dis-assembled for compact travel. Flag mount has a bearing to reduce stress on the base. For additional advertising flag support check out our Heavy Duty Scissor Base with Water Bag if you cannot use the holes to secure the base.
