Need a temporary solution as I hope to be moving house in the next few
months and taking it with me. I recently had a new patio laid which
displaced the pole (and the last bit of lawn/earth), and there's only one
place left to put it.
20-foot aluminum flagpole with ground sleeve, but the area where I want to
put it is concreted so I need to mount the sleeve (or the bottom of
flagpole) above ground, next to a wall approx 5ft tall. I am picturing using
a kind of bracket system attached to the wall, maybe one at the top and one
bottom, to hold the pole in place, similar to a guttering downpipe idea. The
sleeve is approx 2 1/4" across (5.5cm) with approx 7" (17 3/4cm) diameter.
Anyone know of any decent brackets that would do the job? I don't need
something that'll last for 25 years, but want something slightly better than
a bodge. I've also toyed with the idea of using a normal gutter downpipe
(bigger than the sleeve), attaching it to the wall with heavy-duty brackets
and setting the sleeve inside it with concrete/cement but I'll need to
re-use the sleeve in the next house. Is this possible, and can I put
something on the sleeve so it can be removed when the concrete is set? I'll
probably bin the fixings when I move but take the pole and sleeve with me.
Any help much appreciated.
