|After the installation is completed (we strongly suggest 2 people for this) just start turning the crank handle clockwise until the canopy unfolds at maximum. Continue turning the winch and you can have a slight tilt of the canopy at about 45 degrees. The base tube has a 360 degree rotating mechanism and offers the possibility to rotate the parasol and find the best shading position. Don’t forget to tighten the securing screw after changing its position, so the wind won’t spin it.|
