This is a very nice slant-let canopy. It's easy to assemble/disassemble. The only exception is that the canopy quickly begins to wear and tear in areas rubbing against the canopy bars when the canopy is assembled/disassembled. The canopy should be removed from the inner structure during storms/high winds to avoid flyaways. It would be nice to either reinforce these areas (specifically sew 2 round circles on each side of the canopy for a total of 8 reinforced areas to eliminate the material fraying and ultimately tearing OR provide adhesive circles for the customer to apply in the specific areas needed. In the current situation, the canopy will NOT last one season!
I purchased the white 8x16 canopy which included the steel frame, travel bag w/wheels, canopy top, 3 side walls, a door wall, 6 sandbags for the legs (sand not included) and 4 ropes w/stakes. It doesn't actually state it in the description, but there are a total of 6 wall panels and you can place the door panels wherever is most convenient for your set up. The setup instructions are not very helpful and I had to watch a video to see what I was doing wrong. Technically an experienced person might be able to set this particular canopy up by themselves, but I'd highly suggest having someone help you. The sand bags have 2 chambers that need to be filled to help weigh down the canopy. Personally I used a total of 2.5 bags of QUIKRETE 0.5-cu ft 50-lb All-purpose Sand. The only minor complaints I have are one of my doorways is missing a velcro strap and at each pole where you zip the panels together there is a small gap where water could intrude when it rains. The gaps aren't surprising given where they're located and it's easy to remedy, but thought I should mention it, so people could be prepared. Also, this might be area specific, but for some reason bees/wasps love the peaks of my canopy. It's taken a little trial and error, but some strategically placed Irish Spring soap bars seems to be solving that problem. I'm in the PNW and it's summertime (no rain), so I can't say how weatherproof the canopy is, but it's been up for a little over a month with no issues.
Pull frame from bag
Pull open frame enough that you can fit the canopy top on all all 4 corners
Continue pulling frame open until you are able to fully extend all the trusses DO NOT try to extend the legs before this step
Extend legs to desired height equally ie opposite corners, then center legs
Attach sand bags and fill (I used a wide mouthed funnel to reduce spilling)
I used this canopy to cover a deck that is in the sun most of the day. First year if was up for 5 months during the spring and summer and it got through sun, wind and rain okay. Second year the metal peak started to tear through the canopy cover until it went through completely. I was disappointed the canopy top did not last longer. When I went to purchase a replacement canopy cover I saw it was only available with 4 sand bags included. I still have the sand bags from last year, I would have liked to have the option to purchase the canopy cover only.
Really, really like this canopy. So much better quality than others I have purchased.
Wow! I spent $550 on an umbrella FROM SOME OTHER COMPANY last year, it broke with in a couple months. This umbrella from ABC is made way better! The fabric alone is like nothing I have had in any umbrella ever! Very little light comes through the fabric. It beads water on top like crazy and never leaks. We went with the 11 footer and so happy we did. We can even set under it in light rain without getting wet. The lights are made very well and put off enough light to see what you are eating. It shipped very fast as well. You cant go wrong! Forget that junk they have at Lowes and buy from ABC!
I wanted all 3 sides and zipper front, when I ordered, the front was never displayed, so I bought 3 sides, so, do I have to return the 3 sides to get the front zipper opening ? As a set, not my fault.
I love this tent!!! I do about 3-5 shows a week so it gets a lot of use and I'm so thankful I got this one!!! The set up is the easiest one in the whole show and people are amazed when the see how fast I can put it up by myself. The only thing I didn't like was the weight bags that came with it. They don't stay closed and since I do so many shows and it gets windy where I live I have to make sure I have a full 25lbs in them at all time and these only hold about 20lbs...or less because of them falling over and not being closed so sand falls out little by little. I prefer the ones that wrap all the way around the leg and sits in the bottom flat part of the leg so I had to buy another set and just use these as a backup. Other than that the tent is amazing and I have recommended it to sooo many people! I just get inside it once it's opened a little and pop it up with one hand and then I can move it with the top cross bars anywhere I need to go. Easy peasy!!! Oh and I love that fact I can hang my suncatchers on the side bars and have no fear that they will break it! Definitely the best business decision to get this tent that I have made in a long time !!! ❤❤❤
I am so excited to be using this canopy. It is easy to set up by myself and I love how sturdy and secure it is. It is perfect as I do markets for my small business. It costs more than the ones you can buy at Walmart, but it is structurally superior. A great investment.
What are dimensions on umbrella. Please state in feet and inches.
Thank you ABC canopy for your superior customer service! You helped me with great e mail communication! This is rhe 2nd canopy that I have purchased from you, and the quality is so outstanding! Easy to put up and so strong! Perfect for the outdoor fairs That I do. Thank you again! Jill
I really like my new custom Jellyfish Daydreams canopy that I designed. The first show I used it at, it got so much attention and drew the crowd right in! Very well made, heavy duty and well printed! It was the right decision to order this canopy, I foresee it lasting quite some time!
This tent is easy to put up and take down. The important thing to know about this tent, is the middle pole. Crank it down, for easy assembly. Make sure to crank it down before releasing all the legs and it will fold up beautifully. I highly recommend this tent.
Budget friendly gazebo replacement！It's very durable.Thank you so much!
My wife and I have done 5-15 craft fairs a year for the last 4 years, LoveByJM. Often they are 3 day events. This canopy has ben ultra robust. Half of our venues are line of sight to the Gulf of Mexico, and half of those have had storms, often with us in the tent. During one pop up storm in Mississippi, we tethered the tent center to our chairs(plus 50 lbs at each corner). With us suspended from the tent, it went up in the air 3 feet, before coming back down. And I am 6 foot 6 and 300lbs. So, it is strong. At the shrimp festival 1/4 of the tents were demolished overnight, but. One of the abc canopy tents with proper weights. In that storm we set 4 2ft screw anchors in grass and 400lbs to the center support. In other storms for overnight, we sometimes drop the tent to half height which is about 18 inches above the tables. Last time we did that, the main tent (40ft by 80 ft) disappeared with it’s forklift delivered 2ft cube weights every 10ft.I tied the abc canopy to a southern live oak about 5ft diameter at chest height, and a concrete anchored park bench. Everything of ours was undamaged in the morning. Half the vendors needed to leave.
I have a 10 x 10 navy blue canopy and I really like it very sturdy I have three side walls and I really would like the front or door wall to complete the set I do art shows and sometimes are overnight
I have been very pleased with how well my gazebo has held up with all the wind and snow we've had this year! Easy to assemble, do need 2 to put the top on though.
Had a hard time finding a 10x20 gazebo, but eventually got this one from ABC Canopy.
Quality of the build is excellent and was easy to put together with 2 people.
We have had many hours of enjoyment using this gazebo and numerous compliments.
Just hope that I can get a replacement roof for it now to continue enjoying it.
Purchased the 10x15 custom canopy and it’s awesome. Their customer support was very helpful the whole time with setting up the logos. Our soccer club has now asked to purchase another one.
Love the canopy however, after only 6 months the center, main support that is made of plastic broke and I have been unable to find replacement part or even the name of the company. I searched the internet to find the company. It would seem that the main support would be made of metal just as the center pole is made of metal. The tent is used one day per week for a Farmer's Market Station. On the plastic center piece that you push up to fully open, there are 2 small plastic bead like pieces that pop into the pole to connect and bears the weight of the tent. Once one or both of the little bead like pieces either wear down, or in my case, broke off the center could never hold the weight of the tent. I am having to jury rig the center so I can use the canopy. What solution do you have for this problem? No where on the tent, canvas container or box was your company name or number of Customer Support to help me.
Do have 12x12
I’m trying to order a part and the number on the website is for EZ Up canopies!!! How/why do you have a different company’s number listed?
Guess I’ll order my next canopy from EZ Up.
I bought this 2 years ago. I always wait until I have an item for a while before posting a review. This has held up wonderfully. I habg grids from thebsides and then habg wood signs from them. They hold a lot of weight with no issues at all. When I'm at a show and everyone else's tent blows over, mind stays intact and strong. You won't be sorry.
A couple of the reinforcements came off and because of this one of the bars broke. I emailed ABC Canopy and they sent me the replacement parts as well as a few extras within 3 weeks of my email. Thank you ABC Canopy!
I have not used it yet but I am happy with the quality of it looks very sturdy and well worth the money.
I ordered the awning package but after some time I still haven't received a tracking number. I messaged the company, and immediately got a response back. I was told the one I ordered in my color was sold out. Then we emailed back and forth and came up with a solution for a different package with the same color I wanted. The guy I spoke with was incredibly patient with me, very fast at responding, and even put in for rush shipping which was beyond awesome! I love my canopy and I'm so very glad I chose this company to purchase from. Thank you!!!😊🤍
