I talked to a person at Pole Ease over the weekend. She told me they were out of poles right now and not sure when more would come in. They did have the 3 and 5 flag holders available.

Thanks for all the responses. I think I'm going to opt for making my own flag pole holder out of PVC pipe and fittings. I think it would be possible to swivel around the jack light with either a spacer or off set the center pole to the real of the jack. As for the flag poles, I like the idea of making them out of less expensive extendable paint roller poles. They come in fiberglass and aluminum and both are plenty strong. The least flexible will probably be my choice. It seems like the better quality flags and short (+-6 foot) poles typically sold at the Home Depot should slip down inside the roller pole. I like the way the nongromet style flags keep the flag from wrapping around the pole. So what do you think about this plan?

If you do please post. I saw some PVC poles. They were quite bendy but looked good that way. Kind of like me

I use painters poles from Lowe's. They are 12' when extended and 6' when retracted. I did have to increase the size (slightly) of the holes in my Pole-Ease holder. The poles (aluminum) were around $12 each.

Do you have the contact phone number for Pole Ease? When I do a Google search for the company, nothing comes up.

Here is my creation. All from ACE Hardware...well the poles I bought at OSH and the ball toppers are sport balls from Target. The paint poles are 1"od and the EMT that hold them are 1"id. Slotted angle iron and u-bolts complete the needed ingredients. As you may see the angles of the poles can be adjusted or you can easily create a 5 pole assembly. I will let the pictures complete the 1000 words.

Hope this info helps on your quest!
I don't see their ad in the last 2 issues of Blue Beret. Does anyone have any contact information. I'm looking for a 3 pole holder, poles and an American flag. Someone suggested getting paint poles from Home Depot,but I'm not sure how to attach the flag. Kinda looking for "ready to wear". Also, on a new Airstream, would polished or fatina be a better choice?

For poles I use 2- 6 1/2ish foot sections of PVC for each pole so that I can break down. 1" and 3/4" connected with a PVC reducer. One 20' piece of pipe will give you 3 flag pole sections. I put 2 threaded eyes through the pole and connect the flags with snap links.

it appears YOU are a wb' member?

call/email the wb' business/member office in jc.

not only can they GIVE you the contact info,

they STOCK the holders and poles, or have in the past.

SEE POSTS #55-60 in the link below, for the exact stuff the wb' sells.

the pics show the holder AND the ready to use poles...

>>>http://www.airforums.com/forums/f44/...ies-43117.html<<<

the MOUNTING hardware is NOT part of the flag pole holder package,

but the POLES have flag hooks and extend 3 sections

it comes with INSTRUCTIONS for using 3 inch muffler U bolts, like the RUSTY one in my pics...

the stainless stuff is worth the effort to locate and use.

flags can be purchased LOTS of places or online, check the many vendors in cyber space.

cheers
