Since a whisker pole is much lighter/smaller than a spinn pole, if you have a track try using two rings, one near the top of the track and slip the pin end through, clip the other end into the ring at the bottom,or to an appropriate fitting lower down near the deck.

Simply pulling the pole vertical with the pole lift is not going to be very stable in any kind of action underway.
