Collection: Top of Pole Mounting Systems

Our anodized aluminum solar panel mounting systems are modular and can be easily customized to fit most solar panels. All of our pole mounting systems include our unique 13 point tilt mechanism which inserts directly into the top of the pole.  Assembly and installation is easy and requires only basic tools.

Top-of-pole mounting systems can be purchased as a standard kit for specific panels or custom fabricated in our shop to fit your specific solar panel.  We offer two pole mounting kits to effectively accommodate both large and small solar panels.  Each kit includes all the materials needed to mount your solar panel.

The top-of-pole solar panel mount is designed to set atop our 1.5 inch OD stainless steel rotating pole.  The standard pole height is 66 inches.  A custom pole height can be specified at the time of order.

The pole is attached to the stern rail(s) using our brackets.  No drilling or machining is required.  Brackets clamp onto the stern rail and attach to adjustable sleeves that hold the pole and allow it to rotate.  The sleeves can be set to any of three distances from the stern rail for proper alignment.  The center to center pole to stern rail distances are 1 1/4" (pole sleeve against the stern rail), 2" and 3".  Custom extension links are available for greater distances. We offer several pole base designs to accommodate various boat configurations.  Our ball and socket design is standard and our most popular.

    Customer Service and Product

    Very pleased with the performance of the rigid solar panels purchased in 2022. Customer service also has been consistently excellent both before the sale regarding product selection and after the sale regarding installation and maintenance concerns.

    Heavy Duty Panels For The Win

    Installed 1200watts of panels on my 56' commercial fishing boat in Kodiak Alaska, with salt spray and harsh winters I hardly run my genset. Installation was a breeze with using silicone to mount them. Most the boats in my family fleet have them now and we are all saving big on the fuel bill! Couldn't be happier with the purchace.

    Easy Install - Great Performance

    I worked with Tom last year to design a system for my sailboat; the dialog and information was very detailed and helpful in helping determine my system needs and completing the installation. Once ordering, the kit arrived in a timely manner and very complete. The install was very straightforward and Tom provided additional information as needed. After the install I took off on a 7 month cruise of British Columbia. The system worked perfectly during my trip. I’m very happy with the equipment and support from CMP and Tom. I highly recommend !
