Quantum Flex™ Slim Jim
Snow Pole / Service Line Marker
The Slim Jim service line marker is a drivable, low profile, economical marker designed to
identify service lines, meters, valves and other property where low profile or temporary
identification is desired. The modified "T" design remains flexible in virtually all weather
conditions, withstanding vehicle impacts, livestock contact, vandalism and other abusive
conditions. Its reinforced fiberglass composite construction is superior to conventional wood
lath or wire flag products. Decals or reflective sheeting can be applied to the face of the Slim
Jim marker to enhance the identification.
Other applications for the Slim Jim include an extension snow pole for existing roadside
metal delineators (road markers). In snow areas, i.e. northern states and higher elevations,
the steel delineator can get covered up with snow plow drifts. By attaching the Slim Jim to
the existing road marker in the fall, before the snow fall, then removing it in the spring, this
provides an extension, above the snow drift, so the snow plow operator can see where the
road marker is and avoid hitting it with the plow blade.
