How to Keep a Canopy from Blowing Away
Now what materials make for a good and heavy permanently installed canopy that will keep it from blowing away with the first little wind that blows up? Think of heavy materials. Yep that seems like an obvious choice, but a good heavy model can cost you a fortune if you are not careful. Some of the high end models can even be made from iron components. Iron component models do offer a lot of weight, but they are as equally hefty in the area of price.
Wooden models do offer up some stability when it comes to wind. All things being equal, wood is heavier than aluminum. So keep that in mind before you make a purchase.
Now here is the most important tip that I have to offer to help you keep your very expensive canopy from flying away and breaking into a thousand pieces. Think of sand. Yep, the same kind that you find at the beach or at a children’s playground is what I am talking about. What you need to do is buy the sand that is still in the plastic bag. This type of sand can be found at almost any home improvement warehouse. All you do is place the bags of sand on top of the base of the legs. If there is no place on the base to put the bags, just tie a rope around the bag and attach it to the base of the canopy.
That is a little trick that could save you hundreds of dollars. I have seen professionally designed supports go for over a hundred dollars sold in the mega sports warehouses.
The next thing that you can do to keep your canopy from blowing away is to anchor it properly. One thing that I have found with the different canopy models is the fact that they offer very little help or advice pandora charms on how to anchor the tent or covering properly. The first thing that you can do is to purchase some nylon string and a few tent stakes. This type of nylon string can be very strong even though it is thin and cheap looking. Attach the string to the top of the base. Don’t attach it to the canopy since this could cause it damage. Then drive the stakes into the ground at ninety degree angels. Attach the string to the stakes and pull it taught. Be careful not to pull it too tight because you could do damage.
Now here is a little tip on how to save a little money before you decide to purchase a canopy for your backyard. The best way to save money when buying a canopy is to purchase it during winter. Why, because they are out of sea pandora charms son and retailers will try to get rid of last season’s pandora charms models to make for next year’s spring models.
