Be sure to read these step-by-step instructions if assembling the Portable Pole Sign has you confused.

  1. Install the 3 no-mar anti-slip Feet by pushing Feet into holes on bottom of Base and pressing drive pin completely to lock foot into hole.
  2. Remove the Ballast Port plugs and fill the Wheelee™with sand, gravel or water. If using water do not exceed 3 gallons. Add salt or RV antifreeze to prevent freezing.
  3. Insert Sign Pole into center hole of Wheelee Base using a twisting motion while pressing down. Make sure the end of the pole with the 6 mounting holes is facing up with holes perpendicular to slot, see Figure 1.
  4. Add 1.5 – 2 gallons of water to the base through one of the Ballast Ports for stability. 10 – 15 pounds of sand can be substituted for the water.
  5. Attach the top of the sign face to the top hole in the Sign Pole using the hardware provided. Make sure to place the Stabilizer Plate between the back of the sign and the pole with the flat side facing the sign and the rails running along the length of the pole.
    The Nylon Loop Handle can be added when the Bolt is inserted by inserting the Loop into the top of the Sign Pole so that the Bolt goes through it. Attach a Stabilizer Plate to the end of the Bolt projecting through the pole and finger tighten the Flange Nut.

  6. Attach the bottom of the sign face to the Sign Pole using the hardware provided following the same directions in step 2. You may have to wiggle the sign to align the holes that are 3” on center starting 9” from the top hole.
  7. Tighten Flange Nuts snugly. Do not over tighten as this may crush or distort the Sign Pole. The Flange Nut will hold tight.
  8. For 2-sided signs place the second sign face between the back Stabilizer Plate and the Flange Nut. Depending on thickness of sign face, you may need a longer 5/16 – 18 bolt.
  9. To move the sign simply grip the Nylon Loop Handle, tip the sign on recessed wheels and pull to roll in, out or about.

NOTE: The Tip ‘n Roll™ Portable Pole Sign accommodates all stock street signs from 9”x 12” to 24”x 24” along with custom shaped sign panels and POP sign faces that attach with zip ties.

The pole not installed is 48 inches tall, when installed in the base the top of the sign is about 50″ from the ground.
