Heritage Plane Tankard Mug & Socks Set
Good Value for Money Parasol
Really easy to put together and position. Covers our 8 seater round table perfectly. The gymbal movement on the parasol copes well with the windy conditions in our garden. Purchase of base weights was a good decision - we could have bolted the base into the ground, but the marbled slabs do the job well and look much more stylish.

disappointed in effort it takes to put this up
There a couple of things wrong with this product in my opinion. Firstly it is not easy to erect and takes some strength to put the actual umberella up. Secondly as the sun moves you cannot swivel it round to adjust it because there are only two settings. Once it is up and if it is in the right place to result in shade then it is good, but the negative out weighs the positive for me.

We are very happy with our purchase. It is big enough to cover an area that means we can sit out comfortably even when the sun is as hot as today. It looks good and is easy to adjust. The base is heavy enough to make it secure.

Not recommended anywhere there is a slight wind
The quality of the parasol and metal work is good, a pity about the plastic winding handle. Firstly, the instructions were totally inadequate, with no reference to the setting up weight requirements. I did not buy the expensive weights, decided to buy slabs separately. The parasol needs two people to handle setting up, and as there is no weather cover supplied or recommended supplier, the parasol needs to be taken down after each use. Its use on a sunny day may well be limitted as the parasol moves about continuously even in a slight breeze. A bit concernig for the persons below in the shade.The position screw fittings only allow a change of 90 degress. Once set up this function will be of no use as the changes required will be much less. I would have returned it had I not broken up the box. Do NOT buy unless for use in a sheltered area where there is no wind. I amy get used to it in time, on the other hand it may sit in the garage unused for a while, sunny days or not.
