I bought this Flagpole for my camper. It went together in a flash. Only thing that I couldn't figure out was the thumb screws that were sent with it. Didnt fit didnt work. I placed them in the opening that I guess were meant for them. I also ordered the "Solar powered light" that sits atop the pole. It didn't fit this pole. But I fabricated a threaded rod that had a rounded off nut on the end that was filed to fit into the 7/8" top opening of the flagpole. I threaded the 1/2' rod into the topper. It sets majestically at the campground, in honor of all Active Duty Military and Veterans of Branches of Military.
