Bought a large square shade sail and a triangle shade. Different colors (Beige & Black) to add some accent and some variation in looks. Spent a great deal of time measuring and making sure the sails would provide the most coverage and lasting effects for years to come. Finally got both put up. Did take more time than i wanted but happy with the finished product. Here is what I learned in putting up my sails: First if you have nothing to attach to, think about using steel posts instead of wood. Lasts longer and won't bend from the torque of the sails. I attached to the house and 2 steel square 4" posts. Worth the extra $$. Spent around xxx on mine. Also, invest in stainless steel hardware. More peace of mind not worrying about corrosion or rust from the hardware it comes with. Spent another xxx for the hardware. Make sure you have 10% or more space from the shade to your connecting point as directed. I have anywhere from 16" to 30.5". I used plastic covered cable wire and a Come Along to get each corner nice at tight. Used 4 cable clamps on each corner to keep the wire from slipping through. Tighten diagonal corners first, then the other two. I then tightened my turnbuckles which were at each attaching point to give more tightness. Had very strong winds today and yesterday and the sails bounced and floated with the wind. Happy with the look, price, and shipping of this product. Just wish the hardware was better quality.
I anxiously awaited the arrival of our sun shade as it has already gotten hot in central Texas. It arrived promptly. The quality seems superior and the corner hardware is strong-looking. However, the shade is only 5.5 feet across the middle. So we don't actually have 8' x 8' coverage. I will be sending it back today and ordering the 11'10" square with the hope that it is smaller. Will write another review when the new one arrives.
i am a middle aged female with a small deck and purchased this product to replace an existing market umbrella. i installed my sun sail alone attaching two sides to my house with eyebolts and the remaining two sides to 7' galvanized painted poles.
although the sun sail is of good construction, i found the hardware to be substandard and replaced it with new expansion bolts from my local hardware store.
the sail itself is not 8'x8' because of the design, more like 6'x6' at center with the corners reaching the 8' mark. as suggested it is a sun sail and does not shelter from the rain.
i have received many compliments on its appearance and construction. all and all, i am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it.
was very dissatisfied the size was way smaller then stated on the add. so i would have returned it but it was already up and the hassle was just toooooo much after realizing that the size was at least 2inches smaller then stated if i had knowen i would have ordered the med its more like the small size should be
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good
Please tell us about the quality of the product. quality is fine
How accurate was the on site description of the product? not at all
don't bother. This sun sail is ridiculously small, combine that with the ugly white string they give you and you have one cheap looking product. Because it is so small, it blocks the sun overhead for say one hour, then when the sun peeps around the sides, which is most of the day, there is no protection and there is no way to move the shade. A $50 mistake.

Wanted the larger version but it was too big. Good quality product, just not a ton of shad because of its size. Its not really a square and is only 6 feet across through the middle but you need almost 9 feet at the corners. Looks good once I got it installed!

Hello allcurious, This shade is beautiful! I apologize for the confusion; this is in fact 7.5 feet from corner to corner. Please keep in mind the corners come out a bit further than the rest of the shade. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 26, 2013
