I updated the whip mount yesterday to make it easier to get in and out of the garage. I ordered a folding mount from Amazon for $18. When it came I noticed that it was not new but used and complained to Amazon. They immediately credited the full amount to my account and told me to keep the mount. Amazon rocks.

I can put the whip up and down from the driver's seat and it is not taking the beating that it would if I took it off every time I had to pull into the garage. I put the two rubber donuts that came with the whip (to hold a flag in place) in strategic locations to protect it from the roof and tailgate when up and down. The dump bed clears the mount by about 1/4" when dumping.







All these pics are in my album. I hope they come through OK.

I do, I use a bungee to hold my whip down to put it in the garage. I loop it around the whip and hook it to the tailgate latch

I tried tucking it under the roof, which worked ok, except I could tell that it would have stayed bent if I left it overnight.

I like the color coordinated Viking, Quad, Trailer and Whip. Trailer is nice, 16x6?

badM0nkey, can you post a link for the folding mount on here? I am looking on Amazon, but can't seem to find it. Looking to get a set of those. Thanks!

Does this one work: Flagstaff Tab Mount Bracket Fold-Down Billet (Pack of 1): Science Lab Safety Flags: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific

I attached it to the mounting tab that Aronsrb had identified. I think we both have some of those left over. If you want one PM your address and I will stick one in the mail.

Thanks a lot! I have some aluminum stock lying around so I'm just going to copy your tab design and mounting location. Thanks for the great ideas.
