However, like the previous reviewer mentioned, the open-close button is a little unruly. How so?
1) The first time I pushed the open button, the umbrella almost shot out of my hand - it's a very STRONG spring inside the umbrella shaft.
2) The first time I took it out in the rain, I apparently hadn't closed it properly, because the umbrella would extend but the bell would not open - even when pushed up manually by hand. I had to open/close it about 3 times (while standing in the rain) until it would open and stay open.
Determined to figure out its preferred method of use and avoid future similar scenarios, I sat in my room (bad luck, I know) and experimented with opening/closing it to figure out the pattern. Did I mention I'm at college for engineering?
What I figured out:
-If you push the button to open the umbrella, it should extend AND open the bell. To close it, manually pull the umbrella down UNTIL IT CLICKS. It should open properly the next time if you do this. (Don't use the button to close it, despite the "down" arrow which implies you should be able to).
-If you have the umbrella open and then push the button again to close the bell, it will close, but will not open properly the next time. It might take a few opening/closing (which consists of contracting the shaft until it clicks, pushing the open again, or sometimes contracting the shaft to right before the click) until it will open properly again. Not something you want to be dealing with while standing in the rain.Read more ›
