"Roll-Up" American Flag
“I wanted to fly the American flag in my front yard, but without having to run the flag up and down a pole all the time. Now I can quickly roll the flag up or down right from my porch,” says Elmer Pinkerton, Wichita, Kan.
  Pinkerton’s porch is 8 ft. wide and so is his flag. He mounted an 8-ft. piece of rain gutter under the front edge of the porch, upside down. Then he put a piece of electrical conduit inside the gutter and attached the top edge of the flag to the conduit. One end of the conduit sticks through the gutter end cap.
  “I can reach up and roll the flag up or down at will,” says Pinkerton. “When the flag is rolled up the gutter protects it from the elements. Also, it’s easy to run the flag up at night.”
