By welding large nuts onto 3/8" stakes, I laced and looped a 1/8" Home Depot cable through the nut, starting from the top canopy corner, down to the center point between the first two legs, repeating the process around the canopy, ending at the last top corner. After driving the stakes down tightly at each center point the cables tightened and made a secure structure that has withstood our last 3 snow and wind storms.
I will wrap the canopy in roofing sheet metal to make additional motorcycle storage for my grandson, then disassemble and to take the canopy to Tarawa, Gilbert Islands to cover my new portable Coconut Tilt Saw.
Pros:Sturdy and strong construction, light weight, and quick assembly.
Cons:I tried assembly on the ice, slipped and broke 7 ribs! Don't work alone! After 4 weeks recovery, I can now comb my own hair.
