    EZ Pop Up Canopy

    i want a folding out canopy that is already assembled.

    you just take it out the bag and unfold it and the cover is already on it.

    i do commercial work...lots of rtu's.

    it also needs to be ez to unfold with 1 man.

    anyone use one?

    use them all the time. used to burn through two a summer. they're perfect for shade or drizzle, or the pop up rain shower

    catch them on sale at dicks sporting goods during this time of the year. usually get a 6ft and an 8ft.

    I've used quite a few...Not for our trade, but for shade in the pits at the racetrack when I was doing superbike trackdays.

    They are nice to have I imagine for our work too. My experience with them has been, you get what you pay for. For what I was using them for, the cheaper ones fold up quick in a strong gust of wind bending structure bars and such, rendering them more trouble than they are worth for the next stop. All can blow away in a strong wind gust if not weighted down. (since ground anchor is not an option usually)
    I tied all corners down to piles of spare tires and fuel cans to keep them from scooting, or straight up going airbourne and flying away, and even with all that weight, on a windy day, they would walk in the wind with 20 gallons of fuel and a bunch of tires and coolers tied to the corners. For such a small kite, they really can get some good lift going at times lol.

    Now you have me thinking about grabbing another for the upcoming wet spring short of rolling around under a limp tarp if it's pouring rain.
    I'll be curious to hear others experiences with them!

    When we just must work in the rain AND when we have an all day on a rooftop in the middle of the summer.
    Once you use one you will never look back.

    once you recieve it gotta do a pre run in the back yard let us know how it feels and handles. if its durable? since ive read your post ive been looking into the idea. i could always use it for camping.

    We have used them. Make sure they are tied down in the wind. The sun is always coming from the sides so I sometimes set it up away from the unit not directly over top. If your there all day be prepared to move it around. I like the extended poles then set it up like ACFIXR above.
