This is the best invention ever! My umbrella actually stays in the sand now. Usually the wind blows it over but now I don't have to worry about that. We will definitely be using this every time we go to the beach. I can actually stay cold and out of the sun now. I love this product.
I live in Florida, so I go to the beach every weekend if not more often. I can't tell you how many times I've had trouble with our beach umbrella. It came to the point where we would have to ask people for help trying to get it far enough into the ground so that it wouldn't fly away. I always think about just leaving it at home because it isn't worth the trouble, but without it the sun is so very unbearable if just rather skip the beach totally rather than not have any shade whatsoever. So, I got this anchor in the hopes that I wouldn't have anymore umbrella issues and I am VERY pleased! It is so easy to twist into the ground and even easier to get the umbrella in and sturdy. My umbrella hasn't come out of the sand not even once since I've had this anchor. It's is a miracle worker and I'm so happy with it!
Perfect with sport brella
Great item. Robust size and construction
I was cautiously optimistic that this lightweight auger would prove to be an inexpensive and simple solution to anchoring a 7-1/2" umbrella to shelter a small furniture set in my backyard, and following approximately two weeks of use, I've been pleased. Do note that when stronger winds are forecast, I do drop the umbrella as a precaution. Additionally I'm fortunate to loamy soil rather than clay; with dense or clay soil, you would essentially need to drill a pilot hole. How I wish I'd had access to this lightweight device during my family's beach-going days.
Sturdy anchors. Much better than the anchors that came with our beach umbrella. They held in the sand on a moderately windy day.
Great quality, protects very well when windy weather.
Clever idea but performance is marginal. Ok for a very small umbrella on a calm day. Could be improved with wider and longer screw.
Sturdy! Will be a blessing at the beach
Sand anchor works well!! A lot bigger and thicker than appears in picture.....Great product!
