Arsenal of Democracy: The Bungee Cord
Long bungee cord wrapped around pole.
Standard mounting technique.
I usually buy bungees at 99 cent stores for six, sometimes eight for a dollar: well worth it. The reason I use bungees and duct tape on fencing as opposed to zipties is simple: posting takes ten seconds instead of a minute or more. Simply place the sign against the fence, stretch the bungee across the back, duct tape the corners and you're gone. The speed of posting eliminates the need for getting up at four in the morning to do it... broad daylight's just fine. Long bungees work well for large signs or wrapping around posts like the one above: wrap the cord around the post, fasten the ends together and slide the cardboard underneath. You're done.
