Got the same HF flag pole as Dave (http://t.harborfreight.com/20-ft-tel...ole-62285.html minus a 20% off coupon of course), then purchased this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0015UK004..._OQYKwbMPB1YMN. Note that the LARGE diameter holder is required for the HF Pole & smaller ones will not work. However, gently used large hitch brackets are available for around $35).

Be careful with HF pole though! When extending, tighten locking joints only VERY lightly or you will not be able to get them loosened & retracted! I had the bottom joint stick and even two pipe wrenches could not loosen it. Luckily HF exchanged it for a new one. The fix suggested by the manager to remove the locking "guts", drill through holes and use towing snap pins at each joint to secure - http://t.harborfreight.com/square-ba...pin-60660.html. Haven't done that yet but plan to before it locks up again.

Pic attached of modified HF pole section. Locking permanently in extended position is no longer a problem.
