Telescoping Poles are ideal for banner poles and
flagpoles. They are available in several lengths and include end caps to
keep the pole parts contained when they're collapsed. Always put the
end caps in a place where you can find them since poles without caps can
become quite cumbersome. When collapsed they are about 4 feet in
length. A length of re-bar (4' works fine) pounded into the sand makes
for an inexpensive and sturdy mount just slide the pole over the re-bar.
All sizes have reinforced eyelets on the tips to which you can attach
windsocks, kites, streamers and simple pole fishing.
