If you have a set of the "Lego" blocks just use one under each pole.

We are here, OC, with poles deployed. Functioning perfectly! (where'd the thumbs up emoticon go????)

We didn't put the straps or earth anchors on, since it appears we may have with some high winds later tonight. We're on a bluff right above the lake's edge, so no need to "push it".

Glad you made it with no problems, go ahead and strap it down, you'll be surprised what it will withstand. Just make sure if rain is forecast, you lower one end at least 6" lower than the other.

The last 8 sets will include (2) 2-1/2" dia alum tread plate pads. A small "U" shaped strap could (not furnished) be used to rivet to the pad and then rivet the "U" to the inside bottom of the poles. The pads on the last 8 sets will be @ no charge.

You can also pop rivet the alum pad to the end cap that comes on the poles.

I use just a lenox block, never had a problem yet. I do that so I do not put a whole in my outdoor rug, I got alot of them but I guess you could just cut 4x4" piece of 3/8" wood to..... I think that icon is a fire pit?

Hello OC, if you don't mind, can you send me the info. Thinking of upgrading to a 5ver and may need them.

Thanks!
John
