He used these brackets but you would need to drill two small holes and it would require 2 brackets. So 4 total holes. Not sure you could do it without drilling.

No pics but I took a std 2x2 ball mount and welded a piece of flat stk over the ball mount hole and then three pieces of tubing are mounted upright to mount the flag poles.
The ID of the tubing is sized for the Flag Pole OD and the end two are bent a little towards the rear and outward towards the sides of the truck.
This spreads the flags out and keeps the center flag up higher and straighter the US Flag that is.

I run the US Flag in the middle, the POW Flag on the driver’s right and the MA State Flag on the left.
Weather is getting warmer I will attempt to get some pics.

If you have an extra handle then cut it up…

I when to the local scrap yard found some pipe that fit and cut it up.

make sure the pipe has a decent wall thickness because that is what will support the flags and don’t make them too short unless you are running a support wire on the top to the rear of the cab somehow.

I am going to go with the mount that I posted when I do this this summer. It is the strongest and two little holes is no big deal. Also he was using a piece of tube not a flag pole. Not sure what size DOM tube it was though.
