Not a bad deal, but personally cant stand them, I mean look at it, they need a lot of weight on the base to make them stay upright in any light wind.

Brilliant idea if you own a camel or an elephant, you could just weld the base to the platform/seat you chuck on them.

What a lucky find, all that anti elephant paint that Leethal has used on his wing mirrors has sent all the elephants to my place so I'll need a dozen of those umbrellas.

Hahaha! Gold!

I'll hunt down the receipt and let you know where to get the paint :)

Yeah they're farking terrible despite the nice shade.
ours came with 4x25kg blocks to hold it down, plus it's bolted to the brick wall outside, plus its held against the guttering when its fully open.
Its fairly big.
But even with all that attempting it to stop from blowing over, do ya reckon it stays place?



NOPE!!! The farker blows over every second bloody week!

Bunnings have had some cracker bargains lately.

I bought 4 x block out blinds that were $125 each for $40 each.
