“The best thing since sliced bread.” That phrase is used so often that it usually loses its meaning. Until now – and it’s only available from MIL-BAR!

The Guidon Staff Replacement Kit IS the best thing since sliced bread. Well, it may be a little lower than the number one spot, but it’s on the list!

Maintenance is Key!

Flagstaff maintenance is so very necessary. Always ensure the screws are tight on the middle screw joint and each ferrule (monthly). Applying graphite powder on the screw joint, each screw, and the screw post for the finial (spade or battle-ax) will help keep them locked in place and yet allows easy removal if necessary. However, there comes a time when you overlook tightening one screw, it works it way loose, and it’s gone. What makes matters worse is losing the inner brass connector to which both screws attach. These connectors are critical for securing the middle screw joint and the upper and lower ferrules to the staff.

When that happens, what you receive in this kit is worth its weight in gold:

  • Two short brass connectors
  • Four long brass connectors
  • Twelve screws

Mil-Bar is on top of its game when it comes to providing for ceremonial units and cadet-centric organizations.
