Sand flags **Updated with DIY SAND FLAG**

Recommended Posts

Hey guys going out to robe/beachport in couple of weeks and funds are running a little short and I need a sand flag.

 

Curious to see weather anyone has made their own or weather everyone just buys them. I have had a few ideas in what to use but not sure yet.

 

If any one has one for sale let me know, cheers bret

 

 

 

Hey guys, just an update on this thread, made my self a sand flag with ideas from below just thought i would post it up!

 

Materials :

 

- 10mm Tent pole ($9.00 from rays)

- Ryco air fittings (threaded male connection and barbed female connection) free from work, but you can probably source for $10-$20

- Universal bull bar mount (37,4mm from ARB $30)

- Flag ($20-$30 for proper high vis one i think) found one at home, or you can cut up a high vis vest.

- Couple of hose clamps and zip ties.

 

Step 1 - Fit bull bar mount and male fitting to bullbar

Step 2 - Cut one metal holder on a piece of tent pole down the center and fit over female barbed fitting and put two hose clamps on like in the picture, make sure you thread the elastic rope through first before you tighten/

Step 3 - Male tent pole to desiered length, i used three sections, and tie off the end of the elastic. (but dont stretch the elastic to much)

 

Step 4 - Slide your flag over the top and attatch, i have a zip tie at the bottom and top of my flag to stop it from moving up and down and seems to work well.

Step 5 - Fit to your car and smash some dunes! (here is my finished product at half the price of a pre made one!)

If anyone would like to add anything please do!

 

Cheers Bret.
