I also put a test cap in the top under the adapter with a hole cut it in the size of the stem on the Solar light so that it has a snug fit. The flag is hanging on a wooden dowel rod attached to the .5" pipe by 4 eye hooks. That's pretty much it ☺

So far, four tent stakes are working but I replaced the Solar light with a different, heavier light today so I might have to use a rod to slide it over also.
