Twist the flag pole sections to unlock, slide the pole sections to extend, twist to lock, just as you would an extendibles car wash brush.Sam's Club.

For those of you with a ladder, Click here.

I do have do get up on the ladder to extend my pole and lower it but it stays on the camper at all times. I do like the way Mike's works by standing on the ground to raise it.

I recently saw a flag pole on a camper that the holder was mounted to the camper bumper. If folded up and locked like the legs on a foldable table. I'd love to find something like that. I don't have a ladder, and I don't want the one on the ground to avoid tripping, or what have you. Has anyone seen that.

When I was @ MIS in June, I saw several RVs that had a flagpole mount that was attached to the rear bumper. The flagpole holder was then slid into the bumper mount. I didn't look close enough to see a brand name. I've made up my own mounting kit. I'm ordering a new fibreglas pole later this summer.

BTW, some race tracks will not allow metallic flag poles. Not sure how close this is checked for but there were a couple of chaps electrocuted @ Talladega a few years ago when raising their flag pole.

The painters pole was bought at Lowe's, as far as the pulley I removed the screw at the top of the pole where the threaded part is for the paint roller and drilled the hole a little bigger so that I could install an eye hook then open the eye hook to install the pulley and the n closed it back up. The eye hook is the type that has threads so I could install it with nuts on both sides of the pole.
