Should I be concerned about wind blowing over my synthetic thatch umbrella?

The panels on the synthetic thatch umbrellas lever on the rebar umbrella frame, allowing for wind to escape through the panels. You never have to take the umbrella down.

I want to install the umbrellas outside, but codes say I cannot dig a hole and cement the umbrella pole. How would I support the umbrella?

We offer an “umbrella boot,” a steel boot that is bolted to the ground. The pole is slid inside the boot, then the boot is disguised with rope.
