TheLAShop 20ft Aluminum Telescoping Flag Pole Kit with Eagle Finial Review

We received a product free from TheLAShop to facilitate this review.

TheLAShop is a online shop where you can find a unique menagerie of hard to find items. Of the items they have, they offer a wonderful selection. They have flag pole kits, gazebo canopy covers, outdoor shades, patio umbrellas, telescoping ladders, reel manual push behind mowers, privacy screen fence, decorative lighting, grow lights, trampoline parts, mini trampolines, inflatable bouncers, kitchen appliances, musical instruments, photography equipment, outdoor recreation items, and more.

I found there shop easy to navigate. Some of the more interesting and unique items I found in their shop was: tattoo kits, unicycles, electric bicycle motors, airbrush kits and accessories, ice shavers, mini popcorn machine, cotton candy machine, chocolate and drink fountains. etc. There was definitely things in their shop online that I might be in the market for. For example I am thinking about getting my kids a large trampoline to bounce on at the farm and TheLAShop happens to have a lot of parts for it if we needed to replace anything. I was also eying their poultry coops since I now own a farm.

I was given a dollar figure to work with and pick something from their website for free to review. I picked the 20 ft Aluminum Telescoping Flag Pole Kit with Eagle Finial II because we wanted to be patriotic at our farm. When we bought the property it had a flag pole that was very bent with a very sad looking flag all in tatters blowing in the wind and we wanted to retire that one and get a new one set up. I was very happy to find this one to replace it.

The Flag Pole Kit we got had a very distinguished plastic gold painted eagle and a metal gold copper painted ball that you could interchange if you wanted to. Since it doesn't have ropes or pulleys the flags that are flown will not wrap around the pole in a really blustery day. The majestic eagle finial really does make this flagpole look more prestigious. The flag it comes with, in my opinion, was not very fancy and a bit see through, but does still look nice blowing in the wind...and who can argue with the price of it, free with the kit! We actually didn't use the PVC sleeve because we never set the pole in the ground with concrete. We instead attached the bottom of the pole with brackets (Simpson Strong Tie Pipe Rail Tie x2) to one of our fence posts shown in the picture above. When we did this the brackets that held the pole squeezed the pole a little tightly so that it didn't lower as far as it should have, but we were still happy with the result. This is a fairly sturdy very nice looking flag pole.

  • 1x 20' Rust-free Aluminum Flag Pole
