Update January 2021: The majority of our gazebo weight product recommendations are available at present. Let us know if you require help selecting these.
If in a hurry, we would recommend the Industrial Grade AbcCanopy Weights they are the best in their price range and are very good value.
There are 3 main types of gazebo weights. Cast iron, sand bags and fillable plastic leg weights.
These weights can anchor down your gazebo and prevent it from blowing away.
Our product recommendations below will cater for all thicknesses and shapes of frame legs.
So, there should be one to suit you.
Meaning your search for a decent leg weight is finally over.
Types of Gazebo Weights
Gazebo Leg Weights Comparison
Let's get stuck into the individual product reviews. And we've tested everything on this list.
Overall rating : 4.5 / 5
The advantage of this type of gazebo weight is the leg strap. It uses Velcro to attach to virtually any size of frame leg (15 to 50mm).
Pro tip: Don't use sand, dirt or stones. Instead, fill water bottles up with sand or water.
To do this, I suggest in the days and weeks leading up to your event to save any pop bottles that you may use. Ideally, you’ll need 4 bottles and the very large 4 litre Coca-Cola bottles will fit perfectly into the bags.
This tip makes filling the weight bags much easier and tidier and will add a maximum weight of 16kgs or thereabouts, as generally speaking you are talking 1kg per 1 litre of fluid.
Overall rating : 4.3 / 5
The Airwave plastic leg weights are ideal to fix around your pop up gazebos. Please make note that these have been designed to secure shelters with a max pole diameter of 25mm. They can even be used for your parasol bases and come as a set of 4.
They are ideal to give your gazebo that extra strength and stability in breezy weather. Also, they can be filled with water or sand.
Once filled you can expect each to weigh approximately 8kgs (water) and 11 kgs (sand).
If you are particularly concerned about anchoring your gazebo, you may also want to consider combining use of these weights with gazebo wind bars.
Pro tip: We recommend filling with water. It's so much easier to pour away after use. And better for the environment (win-win).
Pro pro tip: When filling with water, add some washing up liquid. This avoids a stale water and plastic smell when emptying.
Overall rating : 4.9 / 5
The tagline for the product is "More Strength, Rapid Anchorage, Faster Set Up!" and that sums this gazebo weight up better than I ever could.
Boy are these heavy duty. These will give your gazebo extra stability instantaneously.
Please note the dimensions. They fits legs hexagonal or square and diameters 30mm, 40mm and 50mm.
If you're in a windy part of Britain, spend the extra and get these for peace of mind.
Pro tip: They are stackable. If you're particularly concerned, invest in more quantity for more anchoring.
