Recommended Flagpole Holder for 1-1/4 Trailer Hitch


Im buying a hitch for a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta and its 1 and 1/4 inch. When I saved this product it told me it would fit in this hitch but now that Im ordering it I cant see where it said that. Now its saying that this flag pole holder is 2 inches. Will this flag pole holder/receiver fit in a 1 1/4 inch hitch? Id appreciate it if you could get back to me as soon as possible.

Don't worry, I have a solution for you.

The Camco Flagpole Holder will fit into shanks of 2 inches but what you can do is use an adapter to reduce the opening to 1-1/4 to fit your 2001 Volkswagen Jetta hitch. This adapter # HTAD will be compatible with both a Class I and Class II trailer hitch. It will reduce the amount of weight that can be loaded into the receiver by 50 percent. This means if your tongue weight was 200lbs then you will be reduced to 100lbs, which should still work for your flag and pole.

If your flag and pole do weight over 100lbs another option is the Boone Hardware # 79553 Tailgating Drive-Up Flag Pole Base. I have linked it to this page for you to check out. This will allow you to mount the flag stand just below your Jetta's wheel to support the weight of the flag and pole. It even comes with a bumper protector and a handy carrying case so that you won't get the interior of your vehicle dirty after your tailgating and game day is over. This base will hold flag poles up to 1.875 inches in diameter.

I have linked all of our Flagpole and the above mentioned products to this page for your convenience.
