You can tilt and rotate this free-hanging parasol without having a pole that blocks your view or gets in the way. It does its utmost to protect you against the sun with 50+ protection against UV-rays.
The fabric gives excellent protection against the sun’s UV rays as it has a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating of 50+, which means it blocks 98% of the ultraviolet radiation.You can easily turn the parasol to shade different areas since it can be rotated 360 degrees.You are protected from the sunshine all day long, since the parasol can be tilted.The air vent reduces wind pressure and allows heat to circulate.The parasol is easy to open or close by using the crank.With a light, passing rain shower, you can stay and relax under the parasol since the canopy repels water.The parasol pole is made of aluminium which means it won’t rust.The strap with buckle keeps the fabric in place when folded.The parasol base will last longer and keep looking fresh, as it is both UV stabilised to withstand prolonged exposure to sunlight and fade resistant.May be completed with TOSTERÖ parasol cover (220 cm).Each part of the parasol base must be completely filled with sand. Approximately 64 litres of sand are needed to fill all four parts, giving a total weight of about 90 kg.Always fold the parasol when not in use and never use it when it is windy.The parasol does not provide protection against reflected or scattered solar ultraviolet radiation.Designer

ParasolVerified BuyerSturdy parasol, easy to assemble
My son bought one and my daughter also bout one.5
Great except colourVerified BuyerHaven't put it together yet but looks easy enough. well packaged. Only thing is that the colour is not as expected. Much browner than the picture. I had expected a lighter colour, more cream.4

Garden ParasolMummyblueGreat garden parasol with a large shade size. Easy to put together and operate open and shut. Quality item at a very good price. Good solid base when filled with sand.5
Sadly, looks good but can"t use it....ETB1I queued up for two hours on the first day of re-opening to buy this as we had been having such great weather. Staff in the Warrington store were great - not so much at the collection point where another customer had to help me load it into my car after I was just left with it on my own. But back to the actual product - yes it's BIG! Fortunately I have a very large decking area (which is why I picked it) so knew I had the space and I specifically wanted one I could turn and angle so I didn't have to keep moving it around. Sadly, I am now too scared to use it! It moves A LOT, even in a light breeze, even more so if it is angled as it resembles a ship's sail so the breeze catches it even more. Which means on the couple of occasions I have sat under it, I am so convinced it might break that I have lowered it down. So my plans to sit peacefully reading in the shade have not transpired, it is actually too stressful. It says not to use in windy conditions - but how much wind is too much?? So it's quite a chunk of money for something that I can't really use as planned, and the thought of having to dismantle it to take it back.............. It looks really smart on my decking, but maybe I should have bought a cheaper, small parasol that I could just move around??2
Not worth the priceSheffieldOn the face of it the product is great however I have had it less than 24 hours and come across 2 issues: Firstly, whilst assembly wasn't difficult at all, after I got the whole thing assembled I couldn't get the metal peg to slide into the rotating base. This is because when you are attaching the rotating base to the legs you have to be so precise in order to line all the holes up. The instructions don't make this clear (also, why would the components even give you room for manoeuvre when it has to be fitted so precisely). I was out by literally millimetres and as a result it wouldn't work. I had to dismantle the whole thing and reassemble. After I did that it partially fixed the problem but there are still a few positions that I can't spin the parasol to because the peg will not slide into the base. Secondly, as mentioned on here below, RUST. The parasol hasn't even been assembled 24 hours yet and there is rust already. It's because of the issue I mention above. The metal peg is so hard to get into some of the holes that by trying to force it in it has scratched the metal base and rusted overnight. It hasn't even rained so this is just from some splashes of water from the paddling pool! This product is large and so I had to pay for delivery meaning that all together I paid £214 for it. I think for that kind of money it should be a lot better quality. Such a shame. I think I would return it if I could work out how to get it back to a store.2
ParasolReadingGreat for the money, size is great, can sway a bit in the breeze. I sometimes have to use additional tension ropes to stabilise4
Good but feet rustGraham2020As a parasol it works well and is quite flexible in how you can adjust it, however at the end of the season we lifted it and found the underside of the steel base had rusted badly and left our sandstone patio with terrible 6-inch rust staining. Therefore if you buy this I strongly suggest you think hard about how you place it and perhaps either paint the underside or else stand it on something that will keep it dry and slightly off the ground like a floor mat. Because I now have to spend money to clean the patio I can't rate this highly.2
Perfect patio umbrella Love itJanet63We are very happy with this umbrella and would recommend. At our local Ikea there Wasn’t one on display to view but we bought it anyway after reading other reviews. Very happy with price and quality5
Good quality vs priceNoo68I've been looking for a cantilevered umbrella for a while, but they are generally so expensive. This one hadn't come up in search as it's listed as hanging not cantilevered. For the price the quality is good. The cloth is removable for the winter and there's a cover available too. It's pretty sturdy with the base filled with sand. It tilts towards vertical and turns 360deg around its axis so covers a good area. It does flap about a fair bit if it's breezy, so i would never leave it up unattended. Having said that it's a breeze to put up and down and isn't at all heavy in that regard. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone with a big patio or a large area to shade where a mid table parasol isn't functional.5
No good if there’s a slight breezeKaren7320I spent some time looking for a parasol online and to be honest I’m so disappointed - despite ballast on the base it’s unstable as the parasol itself gets caught by the slightest breeze. I’ve not been able to use it even today the hottest day, the slightest breeze and can’t be used. It arrived with an oil stain on the canopy and 5 days of it being outside some parts are already rusting. Unless you have a really sheltered garden I wouldn’t recommend this parasol.2
Parasolsummerlanemuch better than others of a greater price.5
Best parasolAnnaJason88Brilliant parasol, by far the best one we’d seen after looking around. Rotates and you can change its angle. Very compact when you retract the whole thing. I would recommend purchasing the cover too for the rainier days. The base is quite large but it is a large parasol so it needs it. Amazing value for money!!5
Excellent QualityJacqui54After looking at other companies parasols,we were pleased to find this one easy to assemble strong construction5
Very useful for outsideNicoleVery strong. Excellent that it swivels so you can move it, as the sun moves round the garden.5
DelightedBrd123Absolutely thrilled with the quality and ease of assembly5
Excellent value for this large parasolPhilSe7enWe've been looking for a parasol for a while, but been put off by high prices. This parasol, plus the base, is a good price. It works well, and is quite large. Rotation requires a bit of dexterity, but that's acceptable for this price. Build quality seem ok so far - we've just had it a few weeks.5
Easily adjustedAmbleGives plenty of shade, can move it to cover the table or where we are sitting. A Best Buy as far as we are concerned, although it would have been helpful if instructions for base showed using paving slabs instead of black plastic sand containers before purchase.5
Excellent QualityBecphelpsReally impressed with this parasol. Very sturdy and good quality mechanism.5
Amazing ParasolDancing QueenThis is a high quality parasol which I bought to use alongside an expensive grey rattan furniture set. I went to see it in store prior to making my purchase and I was very impressed with the tilt mechanism and the 360 rotation feature. The handle works very smoothly and the fabric is heavy and well stitched. The matching weighted base from Ikea fits together well but needs to be filled with sand. I chose instead to use some weighted quadrants to use on the base and am planning to use plant pots on them to make it up to the required 90kg. I researched many parasols on line and in other stores and I agree with the other reviewer that this is a fantastic product which competes with those 3 times the price!! I couldn't be happier with my purchase and it only takes 5 minutes to assemble. Brilliant!5
