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

Step 2:

Step one

Put the base together as seen in the picture.

Step 3:

Step two

Put one of the four foot pieces into the base. As shown in the picture.

Step 4:

Step three

Attach the double connector to the top of the four foot piece

Step 5:

Step four

Drill 2 holes into the other four foot piece and screw your eye screws into the holes and clip the clips onto the screws.

Step 6:

Step five

attach the drilled four foot piece to the double connector and place the cap on top of the pole and you are done.

Sorry that it is sideways

    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.
