Re: Stuck Flag Pole
You've got to figure out a way to get a mechanical advantage. The easiest thing I can think of would be a nylon ratchet strap with a fulcrum and lever.
Wrap the strap as tightly around the pole and end of the lever as possible. If you can use the ratchet feature to help tighten and secure, all the better. Place the fulcrum (pivot point ) as close to the pole as possible, then exert as much force on the opposite end of the lever as possible. Just make sure your lever is up to the task so you don't injure yourself in the process.
You'll probably have to reset the lever and strap a few times, but this will work. The closer to the post the fulcrum is, the more mechanical advantage you'll have.
