For this week’s broadcast of HomeTalkUSA’s “InventAmerica!” segment, guest host Rita Crompton welcomes Pam Fivgas, inventor of The HangEm Straight Flag Pole, to discuss “Manufacturing in America vs China”. Pam Fivgas is a retired school teacher from Colorado. Her product is a flag pole which was actually a creation of her dad’s. When she started displaying her decorative flags she wasn’t happy you couldn’t see the image or read the words. Her dad built a pole out of wooden dowels and screw eyelets and she would hold the two pieces together with elastic ponytail ties. It fit in the flag holder, and finally you could see the entire image and read all the words. For more information, please visit: www.hangemstraight.com.
I’m Pam Fivgas and I’m a retired school teacher from Colorado. My product is a flag pole which was actually a creation of my dad’s. When I started displaying my decorative flags I wasn’t happy with the way they would hang because you couldn’t see the image or read the words. My dad built a pole out of wooden dowels and screw eyelets and I would hold the two pieces together with elastic ponytail ties .It fit in the flag holder I already had and hung perpendicular to the house. Finally you could see the entire image and read all the words. I thought my dad’s idea was great so when I heard about the Inventor’s Roundtable I went to a meeting, met Rita and the rest is history.
