Q. How high is the doorway entrance when it’s fully built?

Q. Can I leave it up overnight?

The manufacturers do not recommend you to leave it outside overnight so, therefore neither can I. However, I have seen feedback from some owners and they actually leave it up all year round
Q. Is it Windproof?
A. All gazebos, especially pop up gazebos have their limitations. No matter what the manufacturer claims there will be a point where it breaks under pressure from the wind.

5 Tips to make this popup gazebo even stronger
- Point Gazebo Towards The Wind
Before assembling your gazebo always check the weather forecast as this can help prevent your day ending in disaster. Wondering why?
Well firstly, find out which direction the wind is blowing. Then point your gazebo in the direction of the wind so the frame is pointing directly into the on gusting wind.
Check the image below.
This will ensure the material sides do not act as sails and prevent them from adding enormous extra pressure to the frame and plastic connectors. Doing as I stated will ensure that the wind is encouraged to pass by, by creating an ‘aerodynamic’ structure.
Please ensure that wind bars, weight bags, guy ropes and tent pegs are used.
- Always Used All Parts Provided
Its oh so simple and this applies to most products not just gazebos. When products arrive at our doors we always (not always, but relatively often) seem to insist on only using the parts we decide we need.
Does this sound like you? It used to be me but not anymore.
Even on the calmest of days I always recommend using all the strengthening parts that are provided. They are there for a reason and by now you should know just how changeable the British weather is….
Here’s a video showing you just how easy it is to add the wind bars.
I also mentioned the weight bags but here’s another great tip to add extra stability to your gazebo that also makes adding strength that little bit tidier and more organised.
- Tips on filling the weight bags
The 4 leg weight bags once filled to the correct level will help keep your gazebo anchored down and prevent the wind from shifting it from side to side, therefore helping to prevent any frame damage.
These weight bags are an important factor for protecting your gazebo by helping prevent the frame from snapping and here’s how to use them.
Prior to using your new gazebo, I would advise you in the days or a couple of weeks beforehand that when you next go shopping to buy 4 x 2-litre bottles of Coca-Cola.
Empty the 4 bottles and then fill them with water and place them into the bags. They fit perfectly and you’ll be surprised just how much more strength they add.
Alternatively, you could use sand, soil or stones but this can get a little dirty and by using the bottles it is a much cleaner and professional way to go.
- Buy Stronger Pegs & Guy Ropes
The guy ropes and tent pegs that are provided are perfectly adequate. However, sometimes you just prefer that little extra peace of mind, or maybe you just prefer having a spare set.
Check out these below as they’re stronger and heavier duty. You can keep the ones originally provided as back up for spares.
- How to use Guy ropes effectively
I’ve spoken about effective windproofing above by explaining the use of the Wind bars and also the weight bags.
However, the guy ropes are just as important.
- The Wind bars help to support and protect the frame
- The Weight bags anchor the gazebo legs
- The Guy ropes help ensure that it isn’t blown away by pinning it to the same position.
First of all, let’s be honest the style of a pop up gazebo is basically like a parachute with poles.
So, therefore, should the wind pick up and none of the previously mentioned pieces of equipment are in use then it will just lift up and blow away.
Therefore, this is where the guy ropes show their importance.
When attaching the guy ropes always ensure that they are angled at 45 degrees, as shown.
This will not only potentially ruin your event but could seriously injure one of your guests or even a passerby. It’s not worth the risk, just use all the equipment because that’s why it’s supplied in the first place.back to menu ↑

As you may well be aware by now I strongly recommend this gazebo for general use. With its ability to resist breezy conditions as well as its ability to keep you dry, there couldn’t be much more that you could really ask of it.
It’s definitely good value for money….RECOMMENDEDback to menu ↑
