We were tired of breaking safety flags (we have broken lots) so worked with Tiger Bay to design a heavy-duty option that will last. It features an oversize and extra heavy-duty base and base quick connect, heavy-duty central quick releases and an oversize pole diameter.
- Weight: 1.8kg
- Length: 3 x 0.8m sections
- Meets all Simpson Desert requirements
- Bull bar mounting: use all 3 sections to add 2.4m and meet the 3.5m Simpson Desert requirement
- If possible, we strongly recommend mounting using one of your bull bar antenna mounts for optimal position and the strongest mount
- Roof rack mounting: use base and top sections only to add 1.6m and meet the 3.5m Simpson Desert requirement
- 0.8m sections for easy transport in most 4x4 drawers
- Includes mounting pin
- Includes storage bag
- Mine-spec components
- Far stronger than the majority of alternatives
- Made in Australia
Do I need a safety flag?
In most areas, sand flags aren't compulsory, but for beach and desert driving with crests and turns, they'll give you early warning of an oncoming vehicle and are a simple way of avoiding head on collisions and keeping your family safe.
Simpson Desert safety flag requirements
All vehicles must be fitted with a safety flag when travelling in the Munga-Thirri-Simpson Desert National. According to the South Australia National Parks & Wildlife Service the flag must be:
- A minimum of 300 mm wide by 290mm high
- Made of fluorescent materials
- Red-orange or lime-yellow in colour
- With front bull bar – flag pole attached to the bulbar, with top of the flag a minimum 3.5 metres from the ground.
- Without front bull bar – flag pole attached via bracket at the front of the vehicle, with top of the flag a minimum 3.5 m from the ground; alternatively flag pole attached to the front of the roof rack, with top of the flag a minimum 2 m from the roof of vehicle.
