    Umbrella Insert

    Got our first chance to use the umbrella inserts today. What do you use to keep the umbrella steady in the insert?

    I"m not sure if this is the exact brand we have but it looks like what they used.

    Re: Umbrella Insert

    The umbrellas I have fit nicely in my sleeves. They aren't snug, but the pole is big enough that they aren't unstable. If you have umbrellas with small diameter poles, I would look for something to make up the difference. Maybe PVC or some tubing.

    Thanks... I figured umbrellas being a tad smaller than the insert wold be pretty common. I guess I'll have to look for some tubing to make up the difference

    Brad, I have that issue too. It is just a slight difference. I also think I need a small rubber sleeve to make it fit snugly. Let me know what you find.
