Safety Flag with LED light (got to love the Dollar Store)
« on: April 19, 2014, 07:34:56 pm »
Well I've  been looking for a safety flag setup with a light for the past couple weeks, but just couldn't see spending $50 to $80 for one, so I knew I had to come up with something by myself.

I went to the Dollar Store and picked up a 5' driveway marker pole for $3 and small LED flashlight for $3.

I took an old pill bottle and sandblasted it inside and out (sandpaper would work just as well) to reflect the light better . I heated the pill bottle up and it slipped over the end of the flashlight; once it cooled it stayed in place.

I have a few RAM Mount parts sitting around, so attached a 1" ball to the end of the pole(I just drilled and tapped the end of the pole and did the same for the RAM Mount ball, then used a 1/4" threaded rod to attach the two.

I added a RAM Mount to my box and mounted the pole. Now I just need to make a flag.

Oh ya, here are my Dollar Store scupper plugs.
