Our Top Recommendation
Do you have a shade sail in your backyard?
Are you thinking of putting one up?
Did you know you need the right type of metal posts for shade sails to get the job done?
When you put up a shade sail, you need shade sail support posts to hold each end of the fabric taut enough to function the way it’s supposed to. Depending on the type of shade sail you have, you may need three or four of these. The poles should be made of metal and durable enough to withstand the tension required to hold up your shade sail.

The most effective way to install a shade sail pole like this is to follow all the directions included in the pole for assembly first, and make sure to attach the pole to any included base that may have come with it.

By following these directions and paying attention to any warnings or tips included in the materials that come with your shade sail, you’ll be well on your way to a happier and more comfortable time outside!
