Beach Umbrella Tethers. Here’s a simple solution to the age-old problem of securing a top-heavy beach umbrella on a breezy day. While we always encourage beach goers to take down their umbrellas when the wind kicks up, we also recognize that coastal breezes – to some degree – are ever present.
We offer many solutions for a Beach Umbrella Anchor for usage in dirt, sand, affixed to a chair and even a bleacher seat. They all do a great job in holding a beach umbrella’s support pole in place. However, umbrellas are top heavy, and their parachute-like design makes them susceptible to the force of wind. A fly-away or damaged umbrella can ruin an otherwise blissful day.
Our beach umbrella tethers are a simple, lightweight and inexpensive way to ensure your shady spot on the beach. The weather is unpredictable. You may not need them at all. However, we feel that this kit is a sensible back up plan when the coastal breezes threaten to send your umbrella tumbling down the shoreline.

Perfect item for our needs. The beach umbrella that we originally bought came with sandbag anchors. When we ordered a second umbrella the anchors were no longer available. These bags are identical in size and construction to the ones we already have. Well made and do the job for us. Delivery to Canada went without a hitch and items arrived timely and in good order.
I ordered these, and the company advised me they were not necessary with the umbrella we purchased. How often does that happen!?
I’m writing this from Kaanapali Beach on Maui, where it is very very windy with gusts of 20mph. The anchors are securing a Tommy Bahama umbrella and it has not blown up once. I would give five stars but for the fact that already two of the four plastic securing clips have broken, but fortunately it was the small flexible piece that broke off, not the larger hook. It would be a perfect product if the mfgr used stainless clips.
These tethers are great and the perfect answer to my windy problem. Much better than hanging wet towels to keep the beach umbrella on the ground.
Our beach umbrella felt very solid with the tethers. No worries of the wind taking it down.
