Here's a simple solution to the age old problem of securing a top heavy beach umbrella on a breezy day. While we always encourage beach goers to take down their umbrellas when the wind kicks up, we also recognize that coastal breezes - to some degree - are ever present.

We offer many solutions for a Beach Umbrella Anchor for usage in dirt, sand, affixed to a chair and even a bleacher seat. They all do a great job in holding a beach umbrella's support pole in place. However, umbrellas are top heavy and their parachute-like design makes them susceptible to the force of wind. A fly-away or damaged umbrella can ruin an otherwise blissful day.

Our beach umbrella tethers are a simple, lightweight and inexpensive way to ensure your shady spot on the beach. You've invested a lot in this trip to the shore. The weather is unpredictable. You may not need them at all. However, we feel that this kit is a sensible back up plan when the coastal breezes threaten to send your umbrella tumbling down the shoreline.

  • Four sand bags with tethers.
  • Kit weighs just 14 oz.
  • Each bag fills with up to 25 pounds of sand.
  • Tethering clips attach behind the umbrella's rib tips.
  • Adjustable tethering clips.
  • Add to your PortaBrella order for just $14.95

A Market Patio Umbrella can great enhance any patio outdoor setting. Like a Beach Cabana on the sand, given the correct Umbrella Bases, your Market Patio Umbrellas will not fold up like Cheap Beach Chairs. Speaking of a Beach Chair, or otherwise known as a Portable Chair, we strongly advise that you opt for Backpack Chairs instead of the standard folding chair. These supportive pieces of furniture fold up like a Beach Shelter to offer the same shade framework as Patio Market Umbrellas do.
