I am looking to fly my flag from my pinbox and am looking for a mount. It looks like I may have to fabricate one myself, before I do I want to see and here what you all are using..
I did a search but was only able to find a very few threads on the subject, with 1 possibility ..

Kinda depends on the flag pole you're using, but just about any small flag pole mount could simply be screwed to the side of a pinbox.

Thanks Bpounds, was looking at the bottom version, maybe on steroids.. I have a 3' x 5' flag that I want to be above my roof line... not sure if those will be beefy enough?

If you want it above the roof line, nope, those will not do it. That's a pretty beefy pole.

I guess my point is, whatever mount fits the pole you have, can simply be bolted to the side of a pinbox. Won't hurt or weaken the pinbox.

I'm the OP in that other thread.

I'm leaning towards the ladder mount that Y-Guy suggested.

Look up the "Pinbox Bike Rack" threads. Most have a 2" receiver tube on top the pinbox. Mount your pole on a ball mount and slide in the receiver tube.
