Rags To Rigids are the sole supplier of the Bates Batten. A revolutionary device for securing a floppy flag.
Born out of necessity, the batten provides an easy way of securing a flag to a lighting stand. Working in the TV and film industry for many years, the creator was becoming increasingly frustrated with the problem encountered when trying to use a floppy flag outside in windy conditions. Having to find lengths of wood or a broom handle and using clips to secure wasn't the answer. A proper solution had to be found.
