Altura Cantilever Umbrella is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional This umbrella was recommended by interior designer. It is elegant in design and we love the look and the quality. We purchased the 10 x 13 size. It is important to know for placement of the stand that the post is on the 13' side. It came with all parts (some of them were tucked inside the packing) and with instructions that made sense. We knew that we would have to purchase 12 concrete blocks 16 x 16" to hold the stand in place. I asked 3 strong men to help mount the umbrella onto the stand, although 2 of them would have been sufficient. It is easy to raise and lower the umbrella, although it helps to be tall enough to reach the floating part on the post (I am 5'7".) It is also helpful to know that you can rotate the umbrella 90 or 180 degrees to allow more room to raise or lower the umbrella so that it does not hit your table or chairs. Now it is winter in San Diego, and it creates the sense of an outdoor living space with out patio heaters, but we are anticipating that it will be even better during the summertime to provide shade and block the sun. It looks as if it can be cantilevered a bit to help with that, so having the post positioned on the west side seems best to help with afternoon sun.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Umbrella but Disappointed I purchased this umbrella and was very unhappy with the size and look of the base. The base is very bulky and I would not have purchased this had I seen proper pics of the base.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase - compares well to Tuuci Really happy with this purchase. For those of you who may be reviewing other umbrella's with this size & scope you've probably looked at the Tuuci umbrellas as these are the gold standard. They also run around 10K for the 13x13. I decided to try this instead and have been very happy so far. The only main difference I can see so far is that the Tuuci has a polished chrome frame vs. the aluminum that comes with this product. I'm sure that is very beautiful but it wasn't worth 8K for me. One thing you may not be prepared for with such a large umbrella is the room you will need to open it. It does take some space to open and you may need to shift some furniture to make room. That being said, we've found that because you can control the tilt while you open and raise the umbrella is provides you with a fair amount of flexibility. In fact, if I have it tilted when I first open the umbrella I can open it in a tighter space without have to adjust any furniture. The mechanisms on the frame for opening, tilting and rotating the umbrella work very well. They are easy to adjust and I have been able to manipulate them at the same time to get better control in tighter spaces. I should also call out that when the umbrella is closed the canopy does sit pretty close to the base so it's reasonably compact given it's large size. We've been able to position our umbrella so it will cover our furniture and can be rotated when needed to cover our spa. As mentioned above I just need to play with the tilt, rotate and opening mechanism to make it work without having to shift around furniture or run into plants. Overall, very happy with purchase and impressed with the umbrella. It looks great and is very functional for us.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would be great except... As another reviewiers have mentioned, you fill the base with cement blocks and there is no way to cover them up. It really takes away from the overall look. Other than the unfortunate looking base, it's heavy (no need to worry about tipping), easy to operate and holds up well. We are on our third year and it still looks brand new. No fading, no wear/tear, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Umbrella! Love!!! Great amazing quality umbrella. Covers large space. Looks professional. You would see outdoor at a Miami hotel. Take 3 people to set up. Note. Screws and small pieces are hidden in base box. You need to dig for the pieces. They are in the box hidden in the cardboard. Hope to have this umbrella forever!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap looking. Very expensive and generally high quality, but the base is inconsistent with both the price and the other materials used. It's merely a metal frame which you fill with 12 or so paving stones for counter-weights. You see the paving stones. There is nothing to cover the stones. This gives it a really cheap, unfinished.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy so far, but beware the install instructions I am very pleased with the quality of the umbrella. I think it will work out great. But the installation was a nightmare, mainly because the installation instructions provide terrible advice. They tell you to first install the adapter (a 3 foot long vertical post with a flange at the bottom that bolts into the base), then lift the umbrella onto the adaptor and slide it down. This might work for a small umbrella, but not for the 11.5 foot model that we got. It's just way too heavy and unwieldy for this. After trying to follow their instructions, we finally decided to ignore them and just lifted the post onto the base, with the adaptor locked inside the main column. Once this assembly is upright on the base, one person can hold it place, while the other screws the first two bolts into the base. Once the first two are are in, you can pull the pin that locks the column to the adaptor, so it can rotate, giving you access to the other bolt holes. One thing to watch out for is that the adaptor holes are not evenly spaced, so there is only one alignment of the adaptor to the base that actually works. Before raising the umbrella, make sure you know how it needs to lines up, and mark it with a piece of masking tape so that you can get the right alignment once it's positioned on the base. It takes at least two pretty strong people to do this, and preferably at least one should be tall.

Hello! I am wondering if the base of this umbrella is on the 10' side or the 13' side of the canopy. Is there a diagram anywhere? Approximately how much clearance is required to open and close the umbrella on each side?  Thank you! 

Asked by: KatieCourtney
Thank you for your interest in our Altura Cantilever Umbrella. The 13' side is by the mast and it extends out 10'. The pole can be rotated 360 degrees, the clearance needed depends on your set or how tall the items are in front of it. There is not much clearance needed, please see the video, it is raised first and then opened.
