How to Use the Shade Anchor Bag®
Poke your beach umbrella through the hole in the bottom of the bag (or you can eliminate this step and set up the Shade Anchor next to your umbrella - especially effective on super windy days!)
Press your umbrella pole about 12" into the sand
Fill the bag with sand - any kind of sand will do, from very fine dusty sand to gravelly sand with pebbles. You don't have to fill it all the way up - use your judgement depending on the wind gusts and the weight of the sand you use (wet sand is heavier so you need less)
Wrap the longer strap around your umbrella pole ABOVE THE RIBS - this will anchor it from the top so it can't blow away even if you knock it over!
Attach to the shorter strap and snap the cam lock - you are DONE!
