Click to enlarge and see how to loop flag snaps to flagpole line.

we just tie the two ends of line together allowing the line when finished to hang just above the ground. This allows enough room to install snaps and allows enough line to wrap around cleat.

We place one snap above the knot of the line and the other below knot spaced to fit flag. then when you raise flag you won't see knot, it will be up with flag and won't interfere with pulley at top as ,knot is between flag snaps.
