8-1/2' Square Outdoor Market Umbrella 3 5 1 1
nice but canopy falls off frame when closing The 8 1/2' Square Market Umbrella is a modern shape and the frame is well made. It will arrive in two separate boxes as two deliveries: the frame and the folded canopy. The installation required is to attach the two poles of the frame together, which takes no time at all. The canopy attachment is obvious which side is up and that one has to unscrew the top finial of the frame and slide the canopy over the top, and screw the finial back on. Simple, but you will need two people, as the umbrella needs to be opened slightly as one slides the ribs into the sewn pockets. The problem is that the canopy, at least mine, was made a little larger than optimal so there is a little slack to the canopy when fully opened. The canopy is held in place by 8 sewn tabs, which hold the frame ribs in place. The tabs would be more functional if they were a little deeper, as the canopy slips out of 4 of the 8 ribs when lowering or closing the frame, This is not a big problem because when one opens it, it takes only a minute to slip the 4 tabs over the ribs and it's fine. However, in my situation, I can walk around and access all corners. If one can’t access all sides easily, this would be a problem or if one desires to lower the umbrella a little (such as in breezy weather). My suspicion is that the canopy was not designed to fall off the frame this easily, but I may be able to sew “extension loops” at each tab to hold the ribs in place. It wasn’t a big enough problem to return it. The tilting option on a square umbrella appears to be a different dynamic than that of a circular umbrella. If I tilt the umbrella, where the longest point is toward the tilt direction, the umbrella is unstable, becomes top heavy and can fall over, even with a substantial base. This didn’t happen with the round umbrellas. Again, just an issue to note, but not so problematic to return. We just have to remember to turn the umbrella top so we get much of the canopy weight on the non-tilting side. I like the umbrella for the square shape and canopy fabric choices. One can design and create a very coordinated outdoor room with Frontgate’s umbrella fabric choices. November 29, 2014
