I have partnered with Noblo for feature
Living in the Pacific Northwest we love heading to Ocean Shores or Seaside, Oregon for weekend getaways. If you have ever visited the West Coast you know how windy it could get here. You want the shade but the wind is such a hassle with a beach umbrella. The makers of the Noblo (get it? ‘No-Blow’) understand this and so they have a solution and I tried it out. Only, I have not driven to the beach quite yet so I decided I need this for a different reason. I use it to hold my patio umbrella on our windy days so I don’t have to keep taking it up and down depending on weather.
We bought a new home last summer and this spring we finally got the concrete poured to elongate our patio. That means I finally got to shop for patio furniture and utilize our backyard to entertain. I chose a table that is a glass top because in my experience they last and clean well. However, living at the Cascade foothills we get those downhill winds. If we have them in the forecast I have to take my umbrella out. If it were to tip the table would go with it and the glass will shatter.
I decided that because I like the way Noblo looks and attaches it could work to save me having to not lug that patio umbrella on and off. I was able to attach it just like on a beach umbrella and then it sits under the table. I attached mine through the umbrella table hole as pictured and it holds. No one could trip over it. Set up is so easy so why not use it on the patio? *Note it is not labeled anywhere to be a patio umbrella anchor so guarantee on your table safety, but I decided to use it as a hack this way and so far so good on my table.
- Fill the Noblo bag with sand up to the labeled fill line and cinch closed
- Attach velcro strap above umbrella spokes
- Set Noblo aside and keep your shade
