Description

Product Description Overview

If you have a lower pole without a 6mm section on the bottom, or if you want to swap your flag around between bikes or trikes with 1/4 inch and 6mm mounts, this adapter lets you use a 1/4 inch pole in a smaller 6mm mount. Includes a silicone grip collar to ensure the pole stays put.






FAQ

1. What is this thing?

This is an adapter to go from a 1/4 inch diameter flagpole down to a 6mm flagpole so you can plug your 1/4 inch pole into a 6mm mount. 6mm is slightly smaller than 1/4 inch, so you can't just plug a 1/4 inch pole into a 6mm mount. You need this adapter to do it, or else you have to sand your 1/4 inch pole down to 6mm. This adapter is much easier than sanding fiberglass.

2. How does it work?

The bottom part is a 6mm carbon fiber rod. It sticks out 2 inches from the carbon fiber ferrule in the middle. The ferrule is 1/4 inch diameter inside. A 1/4 inch pole can be inserted 2 inches down inside the ferrule. The thing at the top is a silicone grip collar. It keeps the pole from getting any ideas about bouncing out.

3. How do I know I need one?

If your flagpole doesn't fit in your mount, you almost certainly have a 1/4 inch pole and a 6mm mount. One of the most common 6mm mounts is the Catrike mount. However, if you order a Purple Sky Flag for your Catrike, you can order it with the bottom end of the flagpole sanded down to 6mm. It's only when you already have a 1/4 inch flagpole that you need this adapter. And then, it comes in really handy!

More Details

All carbon fiber and silicone construction. Super simple to use, just insert the 6mm end into your 6mm flagpole mount, then plug your 1/4 inch flagpole through the silicone grip collar and into ferrule.

Technical Info

Approximately 5.5 inches overall length. The 6mm carbon fiber pole on the bottom is 2 inches long. It is bonded 1 inch up inside the 1/4 inch ID carbon fiber ferrule. A 1/4 inch flagpole can be inserted 2 inches down inside the ferrule. The silicone grip collar holds the flagpole and keeps it from coming out until you release it.

Owner's Manual

Simply insert the 6mm end into your 6mm flagpole mount, then plug your 1/4 inch flagpole through the silicone grip collar and into ferrule. To remove the flagpole, squeeze the grip collar to break the suction and remove the flagpole. Alternatively, you can use a fingernail to push the grip collar back while you twist and pull the flagpole.

Compatible Bike List

For use on any bike or trike with a 6mm flagpole mount. This includes Catrikes, which come with a 6mm mount. If you have a Catrike, we have an optional Grip Grommet that will help keep things securely in the mount.
