If you plan on having this out for any large amount of time or in any winds over 20mph you will want to buy some bolts and cement this down. "carport" is accurate if we're referring to size, but NOT if we're referring to overall durability and longevity. this is NOT meant to be a permanent structure. I learned this the hard way when it blew up and over my 6 ft privacy fence. The amazing thing is that only two poles bent in that process! I put it right back together (after fighting it back into my yard) and tied the tarp top down to some pallets for added weight. Since then I've cut down the legs to about 4 feet tall , shrunk it down so its 10x10, and framed a pallet decking around in. It works awesome and has much less of a windsail factor. The price is still unbelievable for what you get!
