Badflag Mount and Pole Setup Can Help Put Any Flag On Your Ford

Sponsored Links

We’ve all seen those trucks driving around, flying giant flags of various types, touting their patriotism or favorite sports team. But mounting a flag on a vehicle isn’t exactly something that’s easy to do on a lot of vehicles, especially non-trucks, where there’s really nowhere feasible to mount a flag holder. And who’s going to drill a bunch of holes in their Ford Mustang or another precious ride just to fly a flag? Luckily, there’s an incredibly easy and painless alternative from a company called Badflag.

Badflag sells flag poles that come complete with vacuum mounts powerful enough to hold up to 250 pounds thanks to what appear to be Sea Sucker mounts. The poles themselves are constructed from fiberglass and are custom engineered to work on vehicles, so buyers don’t have to worry about them flying off while they’re driving down the highway at high rates of speed, though the company recommends keeping speeds under 65 miles-per-hour to prevent damage to the flag itself.

Best of all, when it’s time to remove the flag pole, it won’t leave behind ugly paint imperfections, damage, or drill holes that invite moisture and rust inside. Installing and removing the Badflag pole is as easy as it gets, and there’s enough vacuum in the suction cup to hold it in place indefinitely, so long as it’s mounted on a smooth, flat surface.

To install the pole and flag, first connect the flag to the pole by removing the bolt on the outer edge of the hardware, insert the grommet on the flag, and replace the bolt. Repeat this step for the other hole in the flag, but first adjust the hardware to fit the flag that’s being used, as each tends to be sized differently. Next, find a clean, flat surface on the vehicle and attach the bottom suction cup first by giving it a gentle push, then press the button/pump on top of the suction cup until the white indicator goes away to push the remaining air out. Next, repeat these steps with the upper suction cup.

On top of selling these cool flag mounts, which can be purchased here, Badflag also offers a wide variety of flags and even makes custom flags to a buyer’s specifications, which is awesome for promoting businesses. But personally, we’d just throw the good old stars and stripes on there for the next car show or meet.

    • Trump flags piss me off. Confederate flags piss me off. Dont tread on me flags piss me off. The American flag will never piss me off. Dont tell me what pissed me off, because that passes me off too.

    • Take a joke. You allowed yourself to be so offended, you brought Nazis up for no reason. I genuinely hope that you don’t think Trump supporters are Nazis to any measure. If so, you are part of the problem.

  2. Betcha they will suck a dent out of a car too. imagine trying to remove one of these suckers and it distorts the body work.
