Common Umbrella Blunders


How many times have you been caught in the rain and had no place to duck in out of a downpour? By the time you reach your destination, all you can think about is how you might still be dry if you had brought an umbrella. Worse still are those times when you do bring an umbrella and the wind is so strong it collapses your little piece of sanctuary and you get wet anyway. Although seemingly low-tech in this age of wireless this and that, the umbrella is still the most practical way of keeping dry when you simply must get somewhereno matter the weather. Here are some common blunders to avoid when shopping for an umbrella.

When possible, you want to actually open your umbrella up before buying. One of the common blunders people make is buy an umbrella without looking at the stitching. With cheaper models, it is possible to see light coming through little pinholes because the material is cheaper. The stitching itself should be taut and held firmly against the ribs. Pinholes and loose stitching will lead to leaks every time. A quality umbrella should be impervious to water from above so it needs quality material and taut stitching.

An umbrella collapses in high wind situations due to cheap or poorly crafted ribs. Thin ribs made out of substandard metals will not stand up to the stresses of Mother Nature for very long. An umbrella that cannot handle winds of up to at least 35 mph is not worth having.

The ribs should be thick and slide smoothly along the shaft. Well-made ribs crafted from quality materials will glide up and down the shaft and then lock into place. The locking mechanism on a quality umbrella should also be thick, made from quality material, and have a high-tension spring able to withstand the stresses of high wind situations. To test the quality of the ribs, try hitting your hand against the ribs in order to stimulate the blunt forces caused by high wind gusts. If the umbrella collapses or even seems flimsy when striking it, move on to the next model.

Finally, an umbrella handle needs to be sturdy and made from quality materials as well. Umbrella handles made from plastic tend to crack and deteriorate quickly. While these will be cheaper, it is important to remember that an umbrella lies dormant in a closet for most of the year. Plastic handles tend to dry out because the petroleum in them evaporates quickly. Umbrella handles made from wood or hard rubber evaporate at a much slower rate and therefore last much longer.

Buying an umbrella isnt a difficult thing and there are only a few points to keep in mind: Look for quality material; taut stitching; quality, well-made ribs that glide along shaft and wont collapse if you hit them; and lastly, handles made from wood or hard rubber. Keeping these simple points in mind when buying your next umbrella may help ensure you stay dry for many years to come!

    We have a small patio and have a number of the Sol 72 Outdoor pieces to help with storage, the thing I like about this piece, is that it doubles as seating. Big enough to hide some toys or gardening supplies, or even bbq tools to keep them out of the weather. Durable and handy!

    Very smart in dark grey though heavier than I had imagined. Looks really nice painted up with small summer plants.

    Arrived damaged. Expected higher quality for what was listed as the original price of 1400 before the big “sale”. For the price paid (290) it is a good value.

    The flat-pack arrived in excellent condition and the instructions were easy to follow . Could not resist starting assembly straight away, all parts were perfectly machined and went together accurately and within an hour or so of arrival I was sitting on the cushioned bench with shoes and boots neatly stored beneath.Thank you www.boisecloggers.com and the manufactures you sourced so well.

    Exactly what we needed for our hallway. Was easy to put together and is nice and sturdy. Some reviews said you can’t fit adult shoes in but mine fit fine, per the photo - guess it really depends on how big your feet/shoes are!

    Love the set and impressed by delivery, 2 hour slot and driver telephoned me when he was 10 minutes. They unpacked it for me and took the huge cardboard container away.

    Ample storage in a robust and well dimensioned box. Easy to put together and clear instructions. One star lost as the top cover has a small crack which was there on delivery and I'm awaiting for www.boisecloggers.com to get back to me in order to rectify. It has been a few days and no response, however given the current Covid19 situation, this is more than understandable. Let's hope it does not rain in the meantime! ;)

    These are nice looking chairs, but they are extremely shallow/small. I wish I had double checked the depth measurement before I ordered them. I'm 5'6" and the seat of the chair hits my leg about mid-thigh and the armrests are too short. They look great, but are very uncomfortable to sit in. If it wasn't such a hassle to return them, I would send them back.

    This bench is beautiful! The color is as pictured but is even richer in actuality. The bench was super easy to put together. Just know that the last bit of hardware that looks like a screw is a tool to screw into the cams to hold them in place within the predrilled holes. This allows you to align and screw into the cams without guesswork. I withheld the fifth star in reservation regarding the bench's ability to remain outside and withstand weather. In Florida, we leave outdoor furniture out year-round. The directions with the bench advise you to wax the wood periodically and "cover the bench" when not in use. So, we'll see how it holds up! I WILL wax the wood and it'll be so worth it to visually enjoy seeing this bench in my courtyard outside year round!

    Perfect size for our balcony, fits perfectly down one side. It had been difficult to find a planter which was a bit smaller than standard. Great quality as well. Will fit 3 small plants perfectly - we;re going for herbs.

    Easy to put together and a perfect size for our patio furniture cushions. Delivery took a day longer than quoted, but not bad taking current lockdown circumstances into account!

    Not even one negative about this at all. My feet are size 10.5.. I didn’t put the backboard piece on the product for this reason and it works perfectly as intended. Looks great and also a bench! 10/10
