By Emily on February 12, 2014
By David from Port St Lucie, Florida on May 18, 2014
Is there any way to make the back panel stay open or roll it up to get a cross breeze? The back of our shelter blocks a nice view of the water.
By Collin C. on May 19, 2014
Answer:Unfortunately, the design of this particular shelter does not allow the back panel to be opened or rolled up. I apologize for the inconvenience.
By Tom from Cottekil, NY on June 5, 2014
Answer:The back panel is not designed for that, you can probably order a second zippered panel same as front as they would be interchangeable. Ask when ordering if they will substitute for a slight fee increase.
By Nick from Shingle Springs, CA on June 5, 2014
Answer:You could chose to not put on the back cover for the summer. Thats what I do for the summer. I live in Sac, Calif. and it gets HOT. The cross breeze is great. I keep my tractor in it.

I believe there is also an upgrade available for opening the door with a pull rope or such. I just put a section of pipe in the pocket along the bottom of the doors and pushed clamps into either end that can hold the door up on the side horizontal frame

How do you tie the four corners of the roof down?
By Emily - eCanopy Product Specialist on June 6, 2016

By Cynthia from CA on September 11, 2016
I live in the San Fernando Valley. How wind resistant is this garage?
By Justin R. - eCanopy Product Specialist on September 12, 2016
Answer:This item does not have a wind rating, but it is expected to withstand reasonable gusts of wind between 20-30 mph. You may be interested in the ShelterLogic snow-load rated shelters, as the snow-load bearing structure is also intended to stand against high wind gusts. Please let us know if you would be interested in one of those products.
By Luigi from CT on September 12, 2016
Answer:As long as it is securely anchored, it is fine. I put mine up the year we had a tropical storm come through. I had the four corners anchored with hardware supplied and then hammered two 12 spikes through my tar driveway at all of the other support posts and it withstood 40 to 50 mph winds with gusts of up to 60 mph all night.
By James from Deer River, MN on September 12, 2016
Answer:Well, I would say do not buy it because the wind moves this thing around a lot. The 4 anchors are good and keep it from flying away but it will sway back and forth a lot. Although, I have to be honest and we had a bad storm this summer and lots of trees and buildings were blown down and damaged but this garage is still standing. I live in northern MN.
By Brian from Shelton, WA on September 12, 2016
Answer:Wind resistance will be determined by the way you anchor and tie down the base plates. The instruction booklet states what is provided is only a basic plan.
You would be wise to give thought to how you plan to anchor the shelter down and take note of the average wind speed exposure you would have in your application.
Personally I found the kit lacking as provided when it comes to anchoring the shelter cover down if you are planning for it to be in service long term.
A hint: If your proposed location will be in direct sun most of the time, you might consider doing what I did by covering the canopy with a heavy duty tarp for protection from the sun UV rays that deteriorates and weakens the canopy and also will add a layer of protection from wind and rain and snow. Same idea as weather proofing a camping tent.
