I have tried virtually every umbrella anchor on the market and this one is by far the best. Most have a narrow corkscrew design and have very little hold. This one as a single large auger at the bottom which works so much better than anything else. Highly recommended
I posted a 5-star review for the umbrella already, so this is for the auger. What you DON'T SEE is the large knob on the other side of the images, which is what you turn with your hand to tighten the internal horizontal screw against the umbrella pole that sits inside the auger. That single, large internal plastic screw keeps the umbrella pole tightly secured inside the auger. The screw inside the auger pushes the umbrella pole against the inside of the auger, not into a hole in the umbrella pole or anything. Not even the manufacturer has a picture of the knob, or inside screw. Horrible marketing, just ******. I almost didn't buy it, because I had no clue how the umbrella stays securely inside the auger. THE INTERNAL AUGER SCREW IS BEEFY, and looks like it'll never come close to breaking. Also, there are 2 HOLES on the neck of the auger (seen in pics). We took a small cable key chain and ran it through one of the holes, then attached a small caribiner to the cable key chain it so we could then clip the auger to the umbrella carrier's handle. AUGER WONT FIT INTO UMBRELLA CARRYING CASE. We haven't used the auger yet, but it looks like this best will do the job!
Very sturdy and very easy to install and remove. Love it !
Hello from Kauai, I took my new umbrella, along with the Sand Anchor, to the beach at Kalapaki Bay Kauai today. The anchor and umbrella worked great, not one time did the umbrella fly away in the wind. Beach volleyball is my passion but when I'm not on the court I need to protect myself from the sun's rays. My UV-Blocker Umbrella allows me to relax in the shade between games. Thanks for designing such an awesome product. Aloha
