TIE IT DOWN! TIE IT DOWN! TIE IT DOWN! I say this over and over again all summer long….. Too often I hear about people who put up their canopy, go out to dinner and it’s gone when they get home. Guess what? It wasn’t the neighbor who stole it. Keep in mind that the monsoon season is harder on your canopy than the sun. We recommend that each and every leg of your set-up be well secured!
