sorry to hear the other person had trouble.
this is my second one. i don't like to share (smile) so i bought the second for my better half. it works just as well as my first one.it's easy to move any where easy to put up & down. room enough for 2 chairs under it. i love-love-love it. two thumbs-up!
My daughter lives at our neighborhood pool, but it gets so hot and there's not a lot of shade. This is one of the few umbrellas I've found with 'feet'--most of them are the stab-in-the-ground type. People kept asking where I got it and I told them I ordered it from Target online. It's also good for early fall soccer when it's still really hot outside. The cup-holders are a nice bonus.
