Your Wind Socks will add a splash of color where ever they live, and can be changed with the Seasons or the Holidays.

Proper care will help to extend their life, and provide more enjoyment  for you and your family.
Windsocks are made from a variety of fabrics, including polyester,  rip-stop nylon, parachute cloth, SolarMax, and flag cloth.
A superior fabric will produce a superior quality of sock.

** Location
Whether hung indoors or out, place your sock in an area that is  convenient, with easy access and free of obstacles.
Your sock can be hung from a deck, porch, dock, overhang, boat, etc.
But take care that it is not rubbing on the pole, house, roof, walls, shrubs, or other abrasive surfaces.
If mounted to a house or deck, we recommend a fiberglass pole with a  bracket that has a 45 degree angle so that the sock hangs below the pole..
Longer windsocks & socks with sticks, in particular, should hang at an angle, instead of straight up & down.
Adding a "swivel socket" tip will help the sock to rotate 360 degrees and avoid wrapping itself around the pole.

** Avoid Direct Sunlight
Remember that both direct and reflected sun can damage your sock over an extended period of time.
Be prepared to invest in a new sock every year if left in an intensely sunny location.
For extended enjoyment, hang your sock in a shady location, or move  it in & out of the direct sunlight.

** Rain
Unless acidic, rain should not harm your sox.
If you live near salt water, or in a dusty location, you may occasionally rinse your sock out in cool clear water, or use a very gentle soap.

** Wind
Extreme wind conditions can also affect the lifespan of your sock.
Hemmed edges are best for most normal wind conditions.
