    March 20, 2018
    I just acquired 4 weight bags. When I looked at them it, it appears that the bags have 2 separate sections and tops do not close. Is that correct?
    1 Answer
    The weight bags do have two separate sections to fill with stand. They can be closed by folding the top back until the velcro sections meet for full enclosure.

    I have very little topsoil (1-2") before hitting limestone rock. How do you secure the canopy in these conditions?
    1 Answer
    If you do not have enough soil to stake your tent, then the weight bags are recommended. They provide up to an additional 80 lbs of support.

    August 2, 2017
    What are the physical dimensions of these bags, ie diameter height? Will they hold water?
    1 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.

    Can you tell me the dimensions of these bags?
    1 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.

    May 16, 2016
    Do they come with sand or do I need to fill them with fillings?
    1 Answer
    Each bag will need to be filled with 20 lbs. of rock, sand or dirt and this will not arrive with the weight bags.

    April 26, 2016
    Is there a video or written instruction on exactly these (Premium Weight Bags) are to be installed/affixed to the canopy legs?
    1 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.

    October 3, 2015
    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?
    1 Answer
    Thank you for your inquiry. You would need to wrap the weight bags around the feet of the canopy legs.

    May 10, 2015
    When using these Caravan Canopy weight bags, do I have to use the stakes that go into the ground as well?
    5 Answers
    It isn't necessary to stake down the canopy if you're using weight bags.
    April L. - eCanopy Product Specialist
    on May 11, 2015
    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.
    on May 11, 2015
    from Dayton, TN
    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.

    from Orlando, FL
    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.
    on May 11, 2015
    from IA
    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.

    from Wisconsin asked:
    September 24, 2013
    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?
    1 Answer
    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 dimensions of this product? Length and width in inches?

    Canopy Weight Bags
    Excellent product! Easy to pack and much easier to carry than a 5 gallon bucket weighted with concrete!
    By Helene from Columbus, OH on June 3, 2017
    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    Better Made Than Expected
    High quality materials, attachment points are also sturdy and very well thought out; all in all, I consider these bags not only a necessity for the larger canopies, but also a steal at the 4-bag package. They have a very small footprint and are not unsightly, the overall impression is very professional.
    ProsStore flat, very sturdy, good attachment points, excellent quality material.

    Universal Canopy Weight Bags
    We used these weight bags with our Caravan Display Shade 10'x10'. These weights were easy to use, filled with pea gravel, and added the extra precaution against heavy winds at this year's Rolex (RK3DE) event in Lexington, KY. We also used our canopy for the 1st time and were very pleased how quickly it setup at our site. We really appreciate being able to store the canopy top assembled to the frame, which simplifies setup.

    Saved time at a good price

    Excellent weight bags
    During four years we have been using various weights for our canopy but none of them worked out to be a long term solution. We ordered a set of four Premium Weight Bags and are very pleased with the strength of the bags material and the ease of installing them on to the legs of the canopy. I put pea gravel in heavy duty zip lock bags and put the bags into the weight bags...they are working very well partially because the weight bags have a strap to lift and move them plus a Velcro strap to secure the weight bags to the canopy leg.

    I had a vendor show coming up in a week and after purchasing a canopy, I could not find weights to hold it down. I found this company on the internet and took a chance on ordering the weights that I needed. I was so surprised they arrived before my show. Quality is great, filling was easy, and with the handles easy to move around for placing on the legs and storage.

    These weight bags are perfect. The tent is regularly set up at a farmers market that seems to exist in a wind tunnel. These weight bags are easy to fill (ours are filled with small rocks), set up, and carry. Our market requires 25lbs of weight per leg - with the river rocks we used to fill our bags, we just about filled all four bags with 120lbs of rock total. Perfect!

    Easier than Staking the Tent Out
    The bags work well in adding weight to the legs to prevent it from blowing away.
    ProsEasy to fill with sand. Provide adequate weight on each leg to prevent the tent from blowing away.
    ConsAttachment system could use two velcro straps instead of a single. Also difficult to use with the side curtains.

    Easy on and Easy Off
    First time I used them it was pretty breezy, and the 4 of them kept the tent settled nicely
    ProsVery easy to take on and off the legs, and they appear to be very well made.
    ConsIt would be nice if the pockets for the sand were lined with something, or had a bottle type container with a cap. You have to just fill the empty space with loose sand, and while it Velcro closes quite well, there is going to be some dust and leakage.

    Great Weight Bags
    These bags fill easily and the velcro on the top is strong and keeps the bag shut. The weights (which I filled with $2 of small pebbles from Home Depot) kept my tent from moving in high winds.
    ProsEasy to fill Easy to move (two conveniently placed handles) Strong Velcro keeps the bags shut
    ConsThese weights make it harder to keep the side walls of your tent fastened. In the highest winds, I tucked the sidewall into the weight to secure it better.

    Need your own sand.
    I haven't actually used the leg weights yet because we're blessed with beautiful weather so much in our area. But I'm sure they'll do their job when the time comes. You do need to supply your own sand or other filler to actually make them heavy; they arrive as empty bags designed to wrap the legs of the canopy.

    Ez Weights
    Theses weights are attractive, compact, and east to use. The are not a trip hazard.
    ProsGreat straps for handling and connecting to legs
    ConsFilled weight may be insufficient to prevent flight in our high wind area when using the sidewalls. So I supplement by adding PVC torpedo tubes hung from each corner.
    By Carol from Kansas City area on May 28, 2013
    Weight bags for the EZ UP
    ehhh... that is supposed to be the sound you make when you are kind of ambivalent about a product. With sand these are not going to put enough weight on a leg to keep the tent safely on the ground in even a mild breeze. We filled PVC pipe with concrete, put a cap on it and inserted those into each of the pockets of the weight bags. That created a weight of about 30 lbs per leg. but you can zip tie those to a leg without the weight bags. Bags just make it easier and neater.

    Use of Canopy Premium Weight Bags
    I was grateful these were on sale and just a little disappointed they only held 20 pounds of sand apiece, but they worked well, had no leaks and with the help of four more bags, managed to hold my EZ up in place in 20 to 30 mile gusts and a horrible rain storm. Good product! Make bigger ones! I can carry 40 pounds!
    ProsSturdy! I liked the heavy duty Velcro used to wrap around the legs of my EZ Up. They kept the sand dry during a rain storm, which was a plus when I went to load up.
    ConsWish they made some that held up to 40 pounds instead of 20. Had to use two sets.

    weight bags vs 5 gal. pale or loose weights
    The bags have a more professional and attractive look than using an orange 5 gallon home depot containers or a bunch of loose weights. Filling them up the first time is a little more difficult but you only need to do it once if you want to store them loaded and ready to go.
    ProsThey have a nicer look and take up less space that alternative methods

    Weight Bags
    These are nice little bags. Took a while to get them filled, but after they were, they slide around the legs of our EZ-Up perfectly and did a great job holding it in place in some pretty strong wind.

    Top of the line!
    I thought the price was quite a bit for "just" weight bags but man... they are not "just"..I love them! They can be heavy or not so depending on how much sand or what ever you put in them. The selling points are the way they are made. Two tall pockets, a large wrap around Velcro band and a very strong web carrying strap. I comment every time I use them just how well made they are and how good they work.

    By Joe from on November 4, 2010
    Work great
    Didn't get these at first, then when we had a windy day and had a hard time keeping the canopy down, I gave them a try. They fit the canopy perfectly, allowing you keep the panels tied to the legs all the way to the ground. Very convenient, and the material is tough - no tearing here.
    By Dawn from on January 18, 2010
    Great idea
    The local markets where I sell require canopies to be tied down. These hold their recommended weight requirements per leg. They look nice, are very durable and have handles for ease in carrying. I also won't have to worry about customers tripping over them.
    By John from on December 2, 2007
    Easy does it
    Two bags of pea gravel from the Home center will fill these four heavy, durable bags, and the handles make them easy to carry around. Much more graceful a solution than buckets of cement, and blended nicely with my blackout tent. Minimalistic, effective; a great solution!
