Bambi75, I put a large screw driver through the hole in the handle, then whack the screwdriver to knock the handle off. May need a third hand. Hitch pin clips are easy mounting for the flags. I 'm not familiar with the Valley Forge things but they look good. If you need some photos check my profile page. John

Ken,

Where did you purchase your flag poles? Got a link or model number of them? They look different than the typical extention poles. They look ALL aluminum.

Thanks,

Archie

We had a 4 pole mount, made out of aluminum attached to the electric jack. I took it off and promptly threw it in the trash can.

This is what I use. I fly two flags, US and Texas. I have used it for 3 or 4 years and happy with it. I like being able to adjust the height based on the wind.

I tried a pair of those flagpoles just last week, except in the 20' length. I was not impressed. The upper clip in each pair tended to slide down. Also, the twist-locks on the sections tended not to stay locked after the wind shifted and wrapped the flag around the pole, so the poles partially collapsed to a shorter length.

I'm presently looking for better telescoping poles that use spring-loaded buttons to lock in the extended position, and with rotating anti-furling rings to attach two flags to. Preferably in a 20' length for use with an "under the tire" base on my Interstate so I can get the lower flag on each pole above the van's roof line. So far I've not had a lot of luck; those features seem to be more common on poles for permanent mounting at home than on portable poles for RV use.

I don't have a lot of choice with my Interstate but to use the under-the-tire mount. If you get one, make sure the base is very stiff. I bought two mounts that weren't stiff enough (I have four flags to fly: US, LA, CoE, WBCCI). The wind was from the north; my van was facing west. The flagpole on the north side caught the wind and actually bent the base of the mount so that the flagpole banged against the side of the van.

Fortunately I had the foresight to wrap the flagpole with pipe insulation so there were no dents or scratches on the side of my Interstate. But I immediately ordered a better pair of mounts that won't bend as easily, which I'll try out on my next excursion.

If you can find a mount that attaches to your hitch, or to the front of your propane tank cover, or whatever, you're much better off than with an under-the-tire mount. I've seen trailers at WBCCI events where they flew as many as five flags on poles arranged in a fan shape, all attached to the front of the trailer on a single mount.

A review on the webpage indicates the lowest section of that pole is about 4" in diameter, kind of big for any of the portable bases I've seen. I don't know about the OP, but I need telescoping poles with a lower-section diameter less than 2-3/8" in order to fit my portable bases.

What a Fiasco

I have a story to tell on getting a mount put on my 28. This really has been a HUGE ordeal. I will post pictures with full explanation just as soon as I can. This has been the most frustrating project, and if I wasn't a veteran, I wouldn't have put so much effort into getting this done RIGHT. Very proud to fly the U.S. flag.

Older rigs are at a true advantage when getting this feat accomplished. Seems everything I did had to be modified one way or the other. I have FINALLY gotten all of the components together to mount my holder. Arrgghhh. More on this tmrw.

It's not the flagpole that was bending in my case. It was the flat metal plate that goes under the tire. And since the tube attached to the base was only big enough to hold a 2-1/4" diameter pole, there wouldn't have been any way to attach a 4" diameter pole to the base anyway.

Geez BA, if you don't have anything positive to say, why post?
You threw a $95 or $165 option into the trash can. And your point is?

Not here to stir the pot, but I find your post to be counter productive to the spirit of the board. We are here to help each other, foster new relationships, and insure all of us are able to enjoy the great outdoors TOGETHER. Throwing something into the "trash can" is a negative I could do w/o when visiting here. I don't care what flag you fly, just be proud of WHAT you fly.
