Too much Weight

Some consumers like to add additional weight to our bases, by placing decorative stones, vases or pottery on top of the base. We do not recommend this. Like a bride there is some “give” to allow for unexpected winds that could blow the umbrella over. By placing to much weight on the base you run the risk of breaking a part of the umbrella. We try to mitigate damages with the use of Spring-Loaded End pieces on the ribs and a breakaway pin system in the hubs.
