Bogdanyi Services, LLCMay 27, 2011
By Bogdanyi /Handyman
Just installed a 16' triangle shade over my above ground pool.
Everybody loves it. Picked up a pressure treated 6"x6"x16'post.
Installed stainless steel eye hooks on my fascia and post,stainless steel
1/8" cable through shade rings, and aluminum and steel turn buckels
on all three corners to tighten up shade.This shade is the cheap part of
the job as the post and mounting hardware was about $75.00 which will be
around forever.If you get cheaper hardware it will rust,break,....etc.
My fascia near pool is only about 7' in the air so I opted to put my 16'
post 5'in the ground and at slight angle away from the pool. This way when
you tighten up your cables/turn buckels your post will be level.I installed
the post eye hook at 11' high giving the sun shade the optimum sun blocking
opportunity from East to West.Living in Orlando, Fl. the summers are brutal.
I imagine the sun and weather will eat any shade I purchase up in a couple of
seasons. Next time I will be able to slack off the cables and hook a brand
new shade up in less than an hour. (It also helps to have a few buddies over when
taking the final slack out of the cables before tightening turn buckles). Also
do not tighten all the way on your first day. Let the sun and rain hit it for
a week, or wet it down with your hose. Tighten it down the rest of the way
after that and be careful not to over tighten/stretch it. Hope this Helps Yah.

Quality & price - I'd buy againJul 20, 2011
Can't speak to longevity quite yet, but so far it appears a good quality item and I've had no issues with it. I did use the supplied lengths of synthetic rope to tie two of the shade vertices on to boat style tie off cleats which I attached to the side off the house. The final corner was the challenge since I didn't want to plant a post in the middle of my yard. I decided to use 1/16" aircraft cable with appropriate thimbles and clips attached to the final triangle vertice and tied it back to a tree in the rear of the yard approx. 65' away. The cable is strong enough and fine enough that it really doesn't stick out like a sore thumb like a lone post in the middle of the yard would. I've thought about buying another one for more shade. The biggest consideration is making sure you think through where your attachment points will be. Not as easy to plop in as an umbrella but muy cheaper and it doesn't take up space, in my case on the deck.

Best deal on triangle shadesMay 29, 2011
By Jack Whittier
Hard to beat this product.
Appears to be of very similar fabric used on my Cooleroo products purchased, but much less expensive.
No hardware included, but that works for me as I prefer to choose my hardware.
Happy so far.

Great for the moneyMay 13, 2011
By Angela J. Rebennack
This is a great shade, especially for the low cost.
I do recommend buying better ties for it. It comes with cheap white nylon rope, which, for long-term use, looks pretty tacky. We used wire and it looks much better. Also, be sure to buy hardware, this does not come with any.

REALLY GREAT!Sep 01, 2011
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R102XLJ4WWTT6 I have to say I was skeptical but I have had these guys up in our courtyard for a full summer season with extreme sun and winds and they are holding up great! we got them to add a little drama to the courtyard and some relief from the direct sun we get in some areas. They are doing both very well.
