Customer comments about Waikiki Round Umbrella in Sunbrella® Canvas:

Agree that the plastic joints will fail. The elbow that supports all the weight is a plastic collar that snapped. I repaired with plastic weld and that held for another six months, until the wind kicked up and it broke again. We are in the desert and the UV may have added to the brittleness, but that piece needs to be made with an upgraded material. Not the usual R&B quality.

This product is used in my: Vacation/second home

bottom line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
