Set-Up Was Frustrating
Receiving and assembling this product started out as a frustrating experience for me. First of all, not all the parts were included?specifically, the elastic ball straps. I had to pay to get more. Secondly, they didn?t send the right directions with the kit! The directions told how to assemble a completely different canopy. Not good. Third, you have to provide your own materials (straps, pegs, weights, etc.) to secure it to the ground, otherwise it just flies away in the wind. Maybe I should have realized that ahead of time, but I didn?t, and the thing turned upside-down in the wind. Nobody was hurt, but it did get a rip in the fabric. Fourth, I?m glad it came equipped with a snow load cable truss system, but because I had the wrong instructions, I didn?t know it and I didn?t know how to attach them. Arrrrgh! HOWEVER, now that I?ve learned all these lessons the hard way and it?s all set up, I am glad I bought it, and we enjoy using it.
