Pickup Truck Flagpole Mount – Flying a flag from the bed of the vehicle is a sign of pride in what the flag represents. If not appropriately mounted, when you get the truck up to speed the pole can damage or you could have issues at a walkway. To show your pride, do the job right the first time so that there are none problems down the road. Have fun with the flags; they make a great statement at tailgate celebrations, as well.
Plan the kind of pole you intend to make use of for flying the flag. If you plan on owning with the flag on display, you need a more powerful install and post. Bear in mind that you do not desire the pole to be over 6 feet high or you will certainly have difficulty with some walkways. For a 3-by-5-foot flag, a strong, hollow post will suffice.
Align the post install on the bed of the truck. Putting the post better to the taxi of the truck provides you additional assistance while driving down the freeway since less of the post will certainly be in the wind.
Drill openings for the pole place and also bolt it right into place. For extra support, area weld the mount to the bed of the truck.
Slide the flagpole into the pole mount. Drill a 1/4-inch opening flat through the mount and flagpole (not needed for a pole place with a set screw). Move the lock pin in place, or tighten up the set screw, to avoid any type of lift on the flag pole while owning.
Mount the flag onto the flagpole. To remove the flagpole, loosen the latch pin or loosen up the set screw and raise the pole up as well as from the bracket.
