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 somewhere—no 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 isn’t 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 won’t 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!

    Modern, easy to move around, love it. However the warning sticker on the glass top table does not come off easily and leaves full square glue mark on glass. Also in description when buying it stated β€œ parasol” which I took to mean table would have hole for one, it doesn’t .

    In of itself this shoe rack is pretty sturdy and looks very similar to how it is presented in the pictures. You will need to source your own wall mount(s) to keep it still, as it wobbles and does not include one. It would also benefit from pre-made holes to screw the back on, as this ended up being a more time consuming process than it needed to be. Overall, pretty satisfied!

    Love the product itself. Struggled a little with the hanging hardware. No directions for hanging but it turned out okay.

    I love our new outdoor sofa! For the price it’s brilliant. The back cushions fall down a bit and the sections don’t fasten together.. but it’s absolutely fine for us. I bought 2 other outdoor cushions also from www.boisecloggers.com that match the lime green. Delivery was faster than expected and sofa was in perfect condition. Might buy another one if more come into stock!

    Great pots, very stylish - I had read the reviews so knew it might crack when making drainage holes so avoided the middle and did it in the four indentations on the big pots. Would recommend you only make two drainage holes as probably won’t crack much that way - I did four and the fourth caused a crack rather than a hole. Even so they were fine with some crocks at the bottom and then filled. Not used the inner pots yet as I wanted tall black ones and these seemed good value versus comparisons which were either too expensive or cheap for indoor use only. Happy with these - just choose your drainage holes wisely!

    Seemed a little expensive, for a plastic box, but you’re paying for the engineering; it was so easy to put together and is sturdy. It’s waterproof and has pressure hinges that stop it blowing open or slamming shut. It housed all fold-up chairs with their thick full-length cushions on and is waterproof. Did exactly what we needed it to do. How often does that happen!?!

    Not the color I thought it was going to be, and during the assembly one of the screw holes was angled weirdly and too small so my boyfriend had to drill a bigger hole in the frame just so it would fit. I love it though! Wonderful addition to my backyard.

    Very cute. Not the sturdiest, but Ok for the price (was on sale). Splintered in parts when putting together and some holes did not line up well. Pretty easy to put together with 2 people. Going to finish the wood with oil so we’ll see if it survives the test of time...

    These are really cute and decent value for the price. They are small, but I knew that when I ordered. The copper is a great color and complements my decor. I added fake succulents to complete the look.

    The seat came broken and I realized it after assembling the swing frame. Hopefully the other parts don’t fall apart.
