How much weight at each corner is needed for this? It sounds like 20 lbs at each corner would be enough to hold the canopy down. Is this true? I would think that it would need more like 40 to 60lbs per pole to be the same as the stake kit. Can you please advise?
By Collin C. on September 24, 2013
For most applications, the 20 pounds of ballast offered by each weight bag will be enough to anchor the tent properly. If you anticipate higher wind gusts, you may want to go with the Set of Four Undercover Gravity Tubes with Quick Straps
, as they can offer even more ballast.

What are the physical dimensions of these bags, ie diameter height? Will they hold water?
By Chaz on August 3, 2017
Answer:The dimensions are 16-1/2" wide and 21-1/4" high. The diameter, when around the canopy leg, would depend on the material in it and how much material you have in it. This will not hold water. Each universal weight bag holds up to 20 lbs. of rock, sand, or dirt.

When using these Caravan Canopy weight bags, do I have to use the stakes that go into the ground as well?
By April L. - eCanopy Product Specialist on May 11, 2015
Answer:It isn't necessary to stake down the canopy if you're using weight bags.
By David from Dayton, TN on May 11, 2015
Answer:If you have the space to use the rope and stakes it is added protection. As we are at a craft festival and the tents are right next to each other the ropes and stakes are Not an option but the weight bags are perfect. I hope this helps answer your question. Both are great together, but it just depends on how much space you have. Good question by the way.
By Dave from Orlando, FL on May 11, 2015
Answer:No. You can use the weight bags when your ecanopy is set up on concrete as well as on grass. Simply tightly wrap the strap attached to one side of the weight bag around the metal leg of the ecanopy and attach the Velcro end of the strap to the other side of the weight bag.
By Sandy from IA on May 11, 2015
Answer:Using the stakes gives you added security to make sure that your canopy does not move. Also, some place you can't even use stakes and the weight bags are ideal for securing your canopy.
By Lou from CO on May 14, 2015
Answer:I use the weight bags instead of the stakes. There are so many places that do not allow stakes, or the venue is on concrete, so the option is using weight bags instead.

By Will M. - eCanopy Product Specialist on May 17, 2016

Do I hang the canopy weight bags from the top of the tent or from the circle hook at the bottom of the tent that lifts to adjust the leg height or should I wrap these canopy premium weight bags around the feet of my canopy?

By Justin R. - eCanopy Product Specialist on May 20, 2016
Answer:The individual bags measure 16.5" wide by 21.25" high. The diameter when attached around the canopy leg would depend on the material in it and how much material you have in it.

Is there a video or written instruction on exactly these (Premium Weight Bags) are to be installed/affixed to the canopy legs?
By Justin R. - eCanopy Product Specialist on April 27, 2016
Answer:No such instructions exist, but the operation is very simple. These bags are empty as we ship them, and you would add rocks, sand, or some other solid material to weigh them down. They feature industrial velcro straps which loop around the bottom of the legs of your canopy.

I have very little topsoil (1-2") before hitting limestone rock. How do you secure the canopy in these conditions?
