The quality is nice! Be careful of corners
March 11, 2017
I have had two of these for 2 years now! I bought them for my son's graduation party! The first time putting it up was a bit challenging, just because I had no clue as to how! ( you spread out the legs, snap in the tabs on the legs into the holes on the upper frame after extending the whole thing in all directions. Once you get those snapped in, put the canopy on..the upper spoke thingies are on a spring so you can pull them down to get it over, definitely a chair is helpful. Then you can extend the legs to the height you want!) It takes two people but is relatively simple and goes up fast. The quality is nice! Be careful of corners..I accidentally ripped one a tiny bit..but it was more my fault than the quality. It is fabric after all. I have also used these for camping! I had one trip where i used both together..using zip ties to hold the inner posts to each other..it was fantastic. It got pretty windy and the corners came up a bit..but we managed to re-secure them and they kept all of us dry in a pretty heavy rain! I absolutely am thrilled i got these..they have come in handy many times. The frames compared to some others i have seen are hefty and sturdy. They are heavy...so if you aren't that strong it might be an issue..i am a 51 year old woman that lifts weights...so i can manage them on my own..but honestly most women won't be able to lift them on their own.. I think in a pinch, now that i have put them up many times..i might even be able to do them by myself....but teenage sons come in handy for spreading out the frame..lol A metal spoon comes in handy when taking it back down to push in the little tabs..it hurt my fingers. Just a tip!
