I ran into lighting issues for something that tall, so I opted for the swivel stake pole.

Mine was an all day project. A friend braze a four inch stock of 3/8" alunimum to a piece of metal chair leg (cut off of course). I drilled and tapped the 5r to accomidate the chrome chair leg bolted to it (Had to bend it slightly to avoid hitting the fron of the 5r.). Use a painters pole (Menards) for the flag pole and same stock of 3/8" tube for the flag. The flag tube is drilled and eyelets attach to the flag then It slips into then painters pole. Additionally, I installed a day/night photo cell to one side of a dual elect box for the flag. The light is a "trouble light/drop light" purchaced from sears on-line $27.00. The other side of the pwr box allows continous power.

Mine is on a dusk to dawn light sensor so I don't have to remember to turn the light on and off.

Found a LED/solar clamp on flagpole light at Lowes beginning of the season. It works great!



Was less than $30... last all night. Only thing needed was to secure shining straight up pole... gooseneck a little too loose. Used a piece of shock cord... secured lighthead to pole...

I found an old length of PVC that was long enough and wedged it between my tonge jack and the propane tanks. Zip tie to jack under the hitch and another to jack above the hitch
