    If you want to completely DIY, just get a 6 foot PVC pipe and stick a flag and marine nav light on one end.

    Or the other option is to check local industrial safety shops. Sometimes an MSHA compliant safety whip can be had for cheap.

    So you're wanting to DIY a whip mount? There are many ways of doing that. If you want a suction cup, it's probably easiest to use the link you posted.

    Sorry. I meant that I misunderstood your post and replied on how to make a whip.

    There are many ways to make a whip mount, depending on where you want it mounted. Example- rear glass, use the suction cups. If you want it mounted to the bed, make a tube clamp that attaches to the rail. It's all about creative engineering at that point. :D

    What do you think of the suction cup mount? Do you think it will stay attached?

    Ass long as your mounting surface is clean, it should hold well.

    Sorry, reread your post. I haven't seen a ditch light mount so I wasn't sure what you meant.
