Flag pole and mount

Recommended Posts

In honor of Flag Day....

 

Bought this HD telescoping adjustable 22 ft flagpole, which comes with a 3x5 US flag: ... https://www.polesandholders.com/product.php?productid=318

 

And built a holder for my cargo tray, which is now mounted in back.

The ID of the tube is larger than the pole OD, so I wrapped the pole in vinyl tape (0.015" thick) The pole can be lowered to around rooftop height if you don't want the flag or art to be in the upper atmosphere. Stored in its carry bag the package is around 4 ft long and fits in the closet.

EDIT 12/19/19:

Tube ID: 2.065”

Pole OD: 1.855”

Clearance 0.210”

The spinner shown is 6 ft long with a 3 ft harness, from here:  https://www.gkites.com/store/

 

I haven't actually flown the flag yet, but I can attach it at the top and hang wind art below it.

 

I plan to put a socket in the ground in my front yard, so I can fly stuff from this pole and not have a permanent installation, which my HOA does not like, for some reason...
