For those of you with a stock Jeep Wrangler, this should clear your rear tire. But if you have a larger carrier or wider spare, you make need to drill another mount hole. I had to drill this to stick out about 1.5" farther in order to clear my JCR adventure tire carrier with 12.50" wide tire, but your individual application may vary.
I ordered this because I needed a flag holder for a funeral ride, and it served its purpose with some modifications. I used a 1 1/4 black iron pipe as the flagpole, and secured that to my spare tire using a ratchet strap - I would not have trusted the holder to hold the flag on it's own at highway speed.
- Works well for a stationary flag holder, with poles around 2" in diameter
- The threaded hole is just a M8 x 1.25 pitch lock nut, welded to the tube. Being a lock nut, there isn't much depth to the threads, and I found that mine wasn't working well and was crossthreading the supplied key. I had to chase the threads with a tap.
- The tightening bolt wasn't long enough to tighten on flag poles much smaller than a 2" diameter. I had to buy a M8 x 1.25 bolt to reach a smaller diameter pole
- Welds were adequate, but not full length. About a 1" weld in two spots on either side of the triangular brace, but fully welded where the round tubing meets the square tubing.
- Metal thickness is 14 gauge (0.0747") which seems thin.
- Square stock was a loose fit in my receiver, and required use of a hitch "anti-rattle" device to lock it in place well.
Overall impression: This served its purpose for one use, when I did not have the time to fabricate my own. However, I would not recommend this product if you plan to use less than a 2" diameter flag pole, or if you plan to fly the flag while driving. I will end up making my own to replace this, and it will probably end up in the scrap steel pile.
One item to mention, you cannot drop your tailgate with the flag in place, which was obvious to me, but I saw some other reviews complain about it.
I haven’t experienced more than a moderate breeze, maybe 10-15MPH, enough to hold the flags out. The pole has a little bit of flex to it, but it appears sturdy enough. The rings holding the carabiners swivel around the pole so that the flags can follow the breeze. They won’t get furled around the pole like a fixed connection would make them get.
The picture shows two in my collection of flags I’ve started. I’m looking forward to displaying the colors at each camping trip.
(ETA: Spring buttons can pop out inside the sections below them and get stuck where you can't press them. To avoid this, I turn the upper section 180° after freeing it so button can't pop back in hole when collapsed.)

I am using it on the back of my 5th wheel trailer to hold up an aluminum pole which supports my two solar panels, perfect, panels rotate towards sun with ease.
