I know I am a day late for this subject, but this worked well for us. I have a telescopic 16 aluminum grade stake. We duct taped it to the corner of the fire tower. Then hooked carabiners to the the flag and slid the over the pole, and taped them in place. We braced the pole with a pair of lekis, and extended the pole.
