Have you ever heard that you can make anything with PVC well you can and here's how you make a PVC flagpole.

Step 1:


All of these PVC pieces should be the 1 1/2 inch PVC

2 Four Feet pieces of PVC

6 Six inch pieces of PVC

2 Twelve inch pieces of PVC

1 PVC Double connector

3 PVC T connectors

4 PVC Elbow connectors

1 PVC cap

2 Eye screws (Preferably 5 mm)

2 Climbing clips
<p>Nice, simple and easy to customize.</p>
If the pole is tall and there is wind, apart from the base toppling over (a problem you already solved) the central coupling could be stressed too much. I'm attaching a (clumsy) sketch with a possible solution using a 45degrees T coupling (which also complicates construction and difficults disassembly, but that`s the idea, ain't it?). Good job, anyway.
That would be an addition that I would use if they had a more permanent setting, I do appreciate the input though.
Nice job! <br> Ken
Thanks :) <br>
If you need more weight to hold it in place, fill the base with sand or even water , works great !
Yeah I ended up filling mine with cement but thanks for the tip and the feedback
Can you show a photo with a flag attached?
&nbsp;yeah no prob i will see if i can find any pics
dude this is sweet. 5*!
&nbsp;thank you&nbsp;
It fliesaway with the flag...might need some weight on the bottom<br />
yeah that is a problem we had but we were also using them inside maybe putting two cinder blocks eh?<br />
Cool, I'll make some for capture-the-flag airsoft games.<br />
great they are extremely easy to build so have fun<br />
I'm going to modify it so you can take the pole out of the base.<br />
you already can i did not glue the pole to the base you can also make them smaller if need be<br />
Very cool dude, I like the base design
we use them at our 4-H metting sadly after this year they will never be used again<br />
&nbsp;if you have any questions ask me<br />
