They want way too much for this, but the idea is solid. Now to fabricate one out of stuff I already have in the garage.

They also have a version that attaches to an RV ladder.

Flag pole? That looks like an excellent TV antenna!

That's what I'm building a bracket like that one to do, TV antenna mast holder. I got the stuff at Lowes today. I'll take pix when I get it mounted. I'm making the bottom out of a regular swivel flag holder ($10) that is white. The top part with the cool slash that allows the mast to slide in at an angle and then turn vertical, will be made from grey PVC conduit with a 1 inch inside diameter. The stamp on the conduit says it's UV resistant, we'll see.

I successfully made a miniature version of the bracket already out of some smaller pipe. Getting the cut just right is a little tricky. But, that's why I have tools. The 10-foot section of PVC conduit was only $2.00, so I have plenty for do-overs. Then I've got to get the mount to the roof just right. I'm thinking some curved washers (got them) on the inside with a shallow head screw will work. If not, I'll fabricate something else.

Lowes also had 3-part extension poles for sale for $16. They are over by the garden center, next to the shovels and such. I may have to get one of those.

Another fine mod brought to you by the fine people at Richard Clark Industries. Very Happy
