I was looking for an OUTDOOR UMBRELLA that would cover the entire area of my patio. There are many kinds of umbrella and sizes. Table, cantilever, wooden, base and push up /lift umbrella. After doing some research I decided I wanted a cantilever umbrella. The biggest part that you must order separately and does not come with the umbrella is a base weights that can be filled with water or sand for those windy days.

Connecting all the parts of the outdoor patio umbrella

  1. When you are putting the umbrella together make sure you have all the parts laid out outside. Find a location where you want the umbrella place. I found a space in the corner right by the barbecue area. Since that is where I will be entertaining the most.

2: Put together the stand which comes with a connector. Place stand first on the floor, insert the pole that is not connected to the canopy in the stand.
