Hats off to all your patriotism!

I made a mount for mine. I use a ***** head in the inch and a half receiver in the back of my trailer. I welded a 1 1/2” nipple to it and screwed a 3’ x 1 1/2” pvc pipe to it. I stuck my 20’ alum paint roller extension handle in the tube with a plastic washer on the handle for a snug fit. I used 2” fender washers on the top end with shower curtain hooks to make a 360* swivel. It works pretty good for my 3x5 flag.

We have the Flagpole Buddy fiberglass pole and mount. We've only had it for one summer, but it did great in some pretty windy conditions. We did take it down when some 40+mph winds hit us in Wyoming [emoticon] We have two flags on it usually.

Mine uses a hitch mount for the flagpole. My pole is just a twist lock and if it is too windy it drops down a section or more. I have thought of drilling it for pins but thought maybe it was better to let it drop down if the wind was that high. even all the way down the flags are still off the ground. No climbing, just drop the pole in the mount, pull up the top section and put the mounts on then top ball and the flags and start sliding it up as high as you want.

Another vote for the flagpolebuddy. Mine is 22', the lowest mount is about 5-6' up, so my pole is about 27-28' high overall. Easiest to install setup I've ever used.

Thanks for all of the inputs.. I ordered and received a Flag Pole and bumper mount.. works great.. BUT now another question..LIGHT? I see numerous solar powered disk style lights on line from numerous sources.. Again, not being able to look at one in person, it is hard to make a choice.. Any recommendations or better yet.. which ones to avoid.. Thanks
