Today I've completed the painting of my second large flag. I feel excited about this not only because of the concept of the flag's design, but also because of my discovery of the extension pole. This pole is meant for painting at tall heights but I decided to take a chance and see how it would work as a flag pole. Before this, I would use ten-foot tall pvc pipes for my tall flags. Now I have an extension pole that goes up to 12 foot tall!
It's also adjustable in height. The twist grip (as pictured) locks the upper part in place at whatever height.
