On my old home course in Baton Rouge we fabricated steel sleeves that encased the pole all the way up to the basket. The baskets slip easily out of the sleeves if you want to move them around, but those sleeves aren't going anywhere. 22 years later all those baskets are still there. Sorry I can't find a better pic.
