Ground Sleeve Installation Steps:
Read the instructions completely before starting and verify you have the materials and tools listed above.
Select a good location for placing your flagpole, check and make sure there are no power lines above or below ground.
Dig a hole 12" in diameter and 26" deep in firm or heavy soil. A larger hole maybe necessary in loose or sandy soil.
Place the pea rock or gravel in the bottom of the hole and level to a depth of approximately 4". The pea rock or gravel will help with drainage.
Install the ï¿½" stop bolt in the ground sleeve then install the nut. Tighten nut so that the bolt is not clamping down to tight on the ground sleeve. Check by slipping the ground sleeve onto the flagpole and make sure the sleeve moves freely up and down and can make contact with the bolt.
Place ground sleeve in the center of the hole and lay the level on the ground across the hole next to the ground sleeve. You should have 2" of the ground sleeve above ground level. If not remove ground sleeve and add or remove pea rock or gravel as needed to obtain the 2" measurement above the ground level.
