Here is a link to a collapsible pole available with Internet access and a credit card. Scroll down to Collapsible Flagpoles To Go. Warning, they are not cheap, but they are really nice, and very easy to store.

This was on a previous post and I purchased mine from this site. It is very nice, easy to store and I'm happy with it.

I see they also have some 3x5 flags. How did you attach the flags to the pole? Also, those flags are tapered...If you have the 12' or 15' does it "hold up" and not bend in higher winds?

They came with the eyelets to attach the flag. I bought the 15' and you can adjust the height. I run mine up enough to put the bottom of the flag just above the top of my center cap. It has held up in the winds. The only problem is that the diameter is not quite an inch and my holder is an inch so I have had difficulty with it turning in the wind.

How about drilling a small hole in the holder that lines up with the center of your poles and inserting a nice SS pin of some sort there to keep them from twisting ?

Awwwshucks, thanks guys.... that was an easy one !
Glad to help though.... I'll be talking to you around tax time Mr. Numbers !

Attached is a pic of a type of "clevis pin" that has a small spring loaded ball on the end to keep the pin from coming out of it's hole too easily, except with a gentle tug on the ring. They come in many lengths, diameters and materials...

I'll bet you'll find a pretty good assortment at your local Ace Hardware store.

Good Luck and have fun !

That's the same flagpole I have at a lower price.

I retract this statement. This pole I discarded as it is not substantial enough for windy days. I finally went to Lowes and bought a painter pole and put eye bolts in for the flag to attach.
Is it spring yet?

I have e-mailed and called Pole Ease with no response. Does anyone know where I might get the 3 flag holder?

After no reply from Pole Ease, I decided to tackle making my own pair of flagpoles for my Safari. How hard could it be, right?

So the other day, I went to our local discount store and found telescoping golf ball retriever poles! Since they were only 10 bucks, I bought a pair.



I decided to cut the tips off (where the golf ball plastic thingumajig was attached to) with my handy dremmel.

I then inserted just the right size diameter plaster board retaining anchor at the tip where I then screwed into a couple washers and retaining screw with a washer that I drilled a small hole into which a retaining ring would then be inserted for the flag clip...








For the pole holders, I just went and got a pair of PVC pipes from Home Depot and cut them to size and secured them with retaining straps...



Works great! And stores within my side compartments quite nicely!



Total cost: less than 40 bucks!

Vinny
