On Rob's suggestions, for flagpoles I am using those extendable painters' poles that you can find at Lowes. They're made for screwing on a paint roller to reach high places without a ladder.

They are aluminum, and once you cut the handle off, they fit perfectly into the one-inch holes that most flagpole holders use. They're also fairly inexpensive, you can get one that goes from 6' - 12' for under $20.

We have one of the 3 pole holders on our unit and it works fine. I think that if a good wind came up with 7 flags on it you would probably air lift a few feet off the ground. We purchased our poles from Lowes. They are swimming pool cleaning poles that telescope in and fit in the pole holder quite well. We like the 3 flag holder because we can have a U.S., State, and Unit or military flag and that is adequate.

We have one of Rob's '3-holers' and use the roller paint extension handles from Lowes...the poles are the 'ribbed' type, and I had to slightly enlarge the holes in the holder with a small drum sander for them to fit properly...but it works great.

I think the poles were about $14 each...I cut off the handles which are plastic, using a hack saw lengthwise to carefully cut through the plastic. I drilled some holes in the poles and used stainless steel carbiners to snap into the flag gromments...

Yup, I did it over the stovetop flame, and then made a slit with an exacto knife, and they slid right off.

I drilled holes through the pole and use zip ties to put them on. A few poles have these West Marine: Spring Release Flag Clips Product Display which make it real easy to change flags. A bag of zip ties is easy too.

Painter poles from Lowes work well too.


Thanks Frank for the painter poles info. We got the 5 flag holder from Rob and it is of great quality. We have the flags, now we just need to run to Lowes for the poles.

I started with the 4'-8' painters' poles and was disappointed with the (lack of) height. Definitely go with the 6'-12' ones.

I too have a flag holder from Rob and rate it first class and worth the money. Used painter poles from Lowes 3 poles for less than $50.00
