Me too.
The very first time that I ever saw my Baby, she was being used as an anchor. The wheels were under water, and one corner of an E-Z-Up was tied to it. Another corner was tied to a cook trailer, and the third corner was tied to the bumper of a pick-em-up truck. They said I couldn't have my BRAND NEW smoker 'til the storms were over. :o :shock:

5 gallon buckets work well, too, and they don't weigh as much to carry as those weights. (Yes, I fill 'em with water!)

Dmax, are those standard plates or olympic sized. I've got a weight set gathering dust in the garage. I could use the 45s and the 35s...


I'm using Olympic. I've switched out to using KD Kanopy products, they are more expensive than an EZ up but will worth it.

OK another newbie question? :roll: Do you run ratchet straps from the upper frame work down to the weights/buckets, or just secure the lower leg portion with the weights/buckets alone?

Mark, I have used ratchet straps, rope...once I even used an apron...oops...missed the question...I attach the strap or rope to the top corner around the frame work of the side and roof braces. Some have cloth loops on the outside corner of the awning...they have been know to tear...don't ask how I know :roll:

Mark, x2 what Mike says, minus the apron thing :lol: :lol: I go around the top of the frame and hook back into the tiedown so the webbing is around the frame. I got a set of 4 tiedowns at Home Depot for @ $12-14 if I remember right. They were the cheapest ones they had. I dont think I would want to use them for a bike, sled or cooker but they work fine for the pop up.
