I bought two of these these to install (2) small 7' patio umbrellas next to our fish pond for shade. They installed easily into our sandy soil (no rocks), and seem to be holding well. I like that the bases are flush to the ground, so there are no tripping hazards. I just wish they were available in black, brown, or bronze to blend in with our umbrella posts. (We keep the umbrellas in the holders 24/7, so there would be no chance of tripping over the anchor).
If this is installed correctly, by reading the directions carefully, it is a wonderful quotes in ground quotes receptacle for a sun umbrella.
I live in a condo with a completely exposed patio. We're not allowed awnings or any permanent structures, so an umbrella is a great solution. But a table with an umbrella just wouldn't fit on this patio, so your product is perfect. I screw it in right at the corner of the patio where it can block the sun from the west. I plan to leave the device in the ground for the summer but take it in for the winter to save on wear. It's a big umbrella though, so if you'd had a 12" option, I'd have bought that.
Can't wait to use it, like the design!
As a soccer family, we spend MANY hours sitting alongside fields watching our kids play. We've also spent a ton of time fighting to anchor our large umbrella in hard-packed dirt, soggy grass, bark, etc. and holding it ourselves on windy days. No more! The EarthWorm is amazing - screws easily into any ground surface and stays put! People see us with it and always ask where we got it.
