Customer comments about Waikiki Umbrellas in Sunbrella® Canvas Orange:
Let me start by saying I am a very loyal room & Board customer bother in personal life and in business and this umbrella is absolutely not representative of the products they typically sell. I am on my second umbrella already and this one is about to fail as well. The umbrella is manufactured with very weak joints and plastic construction which is probably why its so inexpensive for a cantilever umbrella. The slightest breeze and i mean not even measurable the canopy catches and begins to weaken the joint that holds the umbrella to the arm. After a few of these slight breezes the joint finally fails and the lower joints fail because of the torque of the umbrella twisting. The failure includes the aluminum pin connections which completely tear. It took me 3 weeks of pictures discussions and diagrams to convince Room and board to replace it. My replacement is now failing though i am so afraid to put it up and barely use it.
