I just received the sand screw a few days ago, and have not had the opportunity to use it. It initially appears sturdy and assume it will work out just fine.
Will add to my feedback in about a month, which is when I plan to try it out.
I bought the Sand Screw in hopes that my Tommy Bahama umbrella that only had a pointed end could be better anchored in grassy fields while watching my kids sports. Trying to ram the pointed end into the turf was just too difficult and was not working. My initial results with the Sand Screw were very positive in that I was able to easily bore the sand screw into the turf, and the Sand Screw held the umbrella firm. Sand Screw also easily fits in the umbrella bag so it's easy to take along. Problem solved!
Bought this for beach, I am 70 years old and NEVER put a beach umbrella up. It worked. Only used it twice so far.
Everything about this product is good. I own several for the multiple umbrellas I use at the beach. These secure the beach umbrella despite the strong wind. I have never had an umbrella fly off while using the Sand Screw.
Very easy to use and very sturdy
