This umbrella system comes standard with a 1.5-inch ball mount, with a 2.5-inch, 3-hole base that can be attached to almost any substantial flat surface, making it great for use with lounge chairs, kayaks, riding lawnmowers, or a number of other platforms. 

How To Use In Strong Winds

Our umbrellas are designed to invert instead of breaking in the event of a really strong wind gust. If while you’re using the umbrella there is a strong wind gust and the umbrella inverts, it is best to wait on a lull in the wind. Then turn around while facing the wind, pull back and let the wind help force the umbrella back to its normal shape. Do not force or pull the umbrella back while the wind is still blowing or it may result in the umbrella breaking.

When your umbrella is not in use, simply loosen the lever on the adjustable arm and remove both the umbrella and arm for storage. The boat seat bracket is designed to stay mounted to the seat—but completely out of your way.
