Beach Umbrella Anchors for Sand (simple and affordable): Beach umbrellas should always be the first choice when considering a shade product for the beach. Nothing beats a beach umbrella for simplicity and ease. You’re packing a lot of gear to the shore and you’re going to spend a fair amount of time to set it all up. A beach umbrella is the one item you simply can’t do without. But umbrellas are top heavy and their canopies’ parachute-like design will always catch the wind to some degree, especially when tilted. We’ve come up with some ingenious and cost-effective devices to keep your shady spot directly overhead as you relax at the beach.
Many commercially available beach umbrellas these days include an auger-like tip and means to drive the tip into the sand. But most of the forces against an umbrella are applied against the oversized canopy itself. Our simple to use set of four sand bags with tethers attached to the canopy itself in up to four locations and use the plentiful sand as ballast.
