Sharryrn posted a topic in Mega-PolesI have an existing 25-30' permanent flag pole that I would like to make into a mega tree. It is not telescoping and is too tall to get a ladder to (nor would I want to climb that high). The top of the pole has a pulley that the rope rides upon to raise and lower the flag. My question is that I don't know how to make a topper that would hold the light strings and be able to raise and lower with the existing pulley system. I've searched high and low and haven't been able to find something that I could make that would suffice. I had thought of making it out of treated plywood cut into two sections that could be hinged to allow it to be opened and then closed around the pole, land then hoisted up once the lights were attached. I just don't want to reinvent the wheel so to speak.
