Flying a flag at your tailgate space is essential for any tailgater whether it is football, NASCAR or concert tailgating. You not only want to show your spirit and support for your team or favorite driver, but having a flag flying while tailgating identifies your space for late arriving friends. We recently discovered the FLAGPOLE-TO-GO and tested it out to see if it will get the Tailgating Ideas “Tailgate Approved” stamp.
We tested out the FLAGPOLE-TO-GO Ultimate Tailgaters Package with 20′ Portable Flagpole. There are 15′ and 18′ telescoping flagpoles available as well. We chose the larger of the three tailgaters packages because a higher flag is better in our opinion.
(Disclaimer: We received a FLAGPOLE-TO-GO Ultimate Tailgaters Package with 20′ Portable Flagpole free of charge. The fact this sample was provided to us for free in no way influenced our opinion of the product nor did it impact our ability to test and review the product fairly and objectively.)
First of all, the FLAGPOLE-TO-GO Ultimate Tailgaters Package with 20′ Portable Flagpole is essentially two parts. The 20′ telescoping flagpole and the flagpole base that goes under your vehicle’s tire. (A storage bag is sold separately and does not come with the Ultimate Tailgaters Package.)
Once you arrive at your tailgating space, find an area directly above one of your tailgating vehicle’s tires that is unobstructed by trees 15 to 20 feet above your vehicle. The FLAGPOLE-TO-GO raises in sections and if you choose or do not have the height available, you can raise it a few sections accounting for your preferred height.
Step 1: Thread the flagpole base pieces into each other forming an “L” shape.
Step 2: Place the base behind your tire and carefully roll your vehicle directly onto it in order to hold it steady. Insert the flagpole into the base and tighten the holding pin.
Step 3: Attach your flags and raise to your desired height.

After trying out the testing the FLAGPOLE-TO-GO, we have deemed it “Tailgate Approved”. The quality is excellent and affordable. Less than $90 for the largest FLAGPOLE-TO-GO package. Smaller flagpoles are even more affordable.
