Footed Umbrella Holders
To help with your need for shade during sunny river trips, we make footed umbrella holders. They are super simple to use & designed to go on rigid raft floors, in 5 gallon buckets, as well as in canoes. For shade on canoes and rafts, set the umbrella holder on the floor, use a short cam strap to lash it to a thwart or cross bar, and then drop in your umbrella. For use in a 5 gallon bucket, set the umbrella holder in the bottom of the bucket, add a few well-chosen rocks, and/or maybe pile in some sand, and then drop in your umbrella. The bucket method is great for portable shade in camp, for a raft without a rigid floor, or maybe for the front of your raft, where there may not be a rigid bottom. Your umbrella holder comes with holes drilled in it. If you drill a hole in your umbrella pipe, you will be able to pin it in place, which is nice when there’s a breeze. If you are interested in ordering an umbrella holder, we will need to know the diameter of your umbrella pole. We make them out of 1.25” and 1.5” pipe. $35 each.
Umbrella Sand Stakes
For a different way to hold an umbrella in place at camp, we make an umbrella specific sand stake. Like our raft sand stakes, these stakes are made with 2” angle. A short length of pipe is added to hold the umbrella. There are holes drilled in this pipe so, if you put a hole in your umbrella’s pipe, you can pin your umbrella in place. $80 each.
