Umbrellas are the need of every season whether it is the rainy season, winter season or summer season. But the problem with the umbrella is of carrying it, sometimes we forget also outside. The best option to avoid such kind of problem is to have foldable umbrellas so we can keep it in our bags or carry easily. There are many Windproof Umbrella available in the market which protects you from the cold winds when you go outside.

Bore a series of 1/4-inch holes 1 inch apart approximately 1 foot from the bottom of the umbrella pole.
Using 1/4-inch cable, pass the cable through one of the drilled holes and connect the cable to sandbags or other movable or fixed weights using cable crimps. Do this for each hole you drilled.
Our umbrellas use between 3 and 6 sets of holes, cables, and weights. We use 10- to 25-pound sandbags per cable.

On my patio umbrella,, when i crank to fold down,,,it starts closing,then at a certain point,,about half way,,,it starts opening again,,, please help

Not a complete answer but it might help to know the following.
On my umbrella the rope is wound around a pulley such that if you wind it down and keep turning the same way the rope will start to wind back up in the other direction on the pulley and the umbrella will lift again. Maybe the rope on yours is stuck in the middle somehow and when it catches the rope starts winding up in the other direction.

I need a new umbrella for my large Cantilever Umbrella where do I get it and how do i fit it

There are many umbrellas available in the market to cope up with strong winds. There's almost nothing more frustrating than walking through a storm and having your umbrella turned inside-out and destroyed by a strong gust of wind. Many umbrellas experience breakage in this way, leaving their owners exposed to the elements. To have more options you can look on Travel Umbrella.

These are to prevent the umbrella from flapping in the wind when it is down. When you lower the umbrella, simply wrap the velcro strap around the entire circumference of the lowered umbrella, then attach it to the other tab. That's it!

I brough an umbrella stand that is suppose to be used with a table. How do I turn the base into free staning.

The table stand will have some or all of these four deficiencies: 1. Too small diameter 2. Too light-weight 3. Too short and weak of a neck to support the pole 4. No mechanism to secure the pole to the base
So any breeze would tip it over, break off the neck, or lift it right out of the base. Without seeing the base you have I can't be certain, but your likelihood of success is pretty slim.

1/8 inch movement of the pendulum bob is equal to about 3 min per 24 hours running.
-To increase the time of the clock, move pendulum up.
-To slow down the time move, pendulum down.

Regulation notes:
These novel clocks are at best only a "fair" time-keeper. You can expect 100 to 120 sec per 30-hour winding period. I recommend that if it is within a few minutes per winding, simply RE-set the time.

-The regulation obstacles are obvious:
1. Open pendulum, this allows even the slightest breeze from a fan, ceiling fan or even cross-winds inside your house to affect both time qualities and/or its running ability.
2. The Pendulum material is wooden, and sensitive to climatic condition, during times of high humidity the clock will slow down.

Hope this tip helps.
