How to Measure a Windsock

Method 1
Measure around the complete circumference of the throat of the windsock.
Divide that measurement by 3.14. This will calculate the diameter of the in inches.

Method 2
Lay your windsock flat on a table or floor.
Measure from one side to the opposite side of the throat.
Take that measurement & multiply by 2, then divide by 3.14. The result is the diameter.

Method 3
To determine the diameter, measure from side to side through the middle of your windsock frame.

What type of pole am I going to mount this on?

While everyone has a different application and different areas in which they mount their windsock. The most popular method is to get a galvanized water pipe and put a reducer/coupler to the top and just screw the bearing right in into the female pipe thread.

Another excellent idea we use here at Windtek is to place a 2×4 post into the ground and attach brackets onto the side of the post, holding the galvanized water pipe. This method allows you to easily bring the pipe down when you need replacement, instead of climbing to the top.

The 8″, 10″ and 13″ units attach to a 1/2 inch female fitting.  The 18″ and 24″ units attach to a 3/4 inch female fitting and the 36″ unit attaches to a 1 1/4 inch female fitting.
