Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alicia Works pretty good
Was a little concerned. Wanted to lay the sail over a wood pergola, so called the company after we got it and they said no problem. The only issue is when it says 12ft x 12ft, that is the measurement at the corners, not along the sides, so it is probably about 11ft x 11ft. It does a great job of letting the rain through so there are no puddles on it. The color (blue) is perfect. Overall, we really like it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Great value, great shade!
We bought the 12' x 12' blue sail and are very happy with the color-- it's a light, sky blue. The hardware that came with the sail could be of better quality but it's fine for now (may need to be replaced after a season or two). My husband hung it by himself. We downgraded it a star on quality due to the fact that there is a defect in the sail that looks like it had a 10" rip and was sewn up to fix it. Hubby didn't notice until after it was hung, so lay yours out and inspect it before you hang it. But it does provide great, much needed shade and it's a terrific value for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jmar Great answer to a sunny problem
Living in the hot, sunny South, seeking shade is a must!! I had a pergola built a year ago for my patio but couldn't enjoy it very much during the Summer months. The shade sail seemed to be the solution. If I could get it installed OVER the pergola, I could still hang pots, etc. from the wooden structure. A friend installed it for me in about an hour. It is hooked under the eaves and attached to the far end of the structure. It is providing much needed shade! Great solution for a very reasonable price. I am very pleased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LHFLA Heavy Weight Sun Sail better way to attach
Our Sun Shade arrived with one package of hardware missing and that was a blessing. Forget the hardware that comes with this product. Reading reviews revealed that people struggle with the hardware and sagging being a major problem. Purchase 2 or 4 dock/rope cleats, 2 chain connectors and the appropriate length of twisted poly rope (1/4" with 100+ pounds working load). See photos for where and how to use the chain connectors, cleats and rope. You will be able to remove slack or lower and remove the whole unit in less than 5 minutes. Note: the Shade sail should not have any slack where it attaches to the house--if your anchor points for the Eye lags or Eye bolts can't be spaced to prevent slack--Place one Eye where you can run the rope through the eye and then to a rope cleat to make tight.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dood70 Excellent product overall and great value!
This is an excellent product: quality material, strong construction, all the hardware needed, easy to install, very effective in blocking sun but cooling at the same time. The only drawback for me was that it was not a true square of 12 feet. It curves in and measures only 10 feet at the center of each side. That leaves sunny areas on my deck.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LynnERRN Just as nice as the Coolaroo brand shade sail
I have this shade sail next to a Coolaroo shade sail I bought several years ago. The are basically identical in construction, both keep out the sun the same, the Coolaroo shade has a seam down the center but this one doesn't and yet this sail was a LOT CHEAPER. I would never pay the price again for the Coolaroo again. I would recommend this product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Richgator Great Product
A great alternative to more expensive awnings. Just realize the fabric will stretch a little over time and place attachments far enough away to be able to take up slack as time goes on. Most stretch in the first two weeks. We live very close to the beach and get quite bit at times and the shade holds up great. Plenty of give for the high wind thunderstorms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by merlin4159 Absolutey wonderful! I needed something to shade my deck by the pool that wouldn't blow over like an umbrella would.
I love what this shade sail has done for my back deck. I can enjoy sitting out under it no matter how hot it is. I'm a mailman and i saw one of these on my route and didn't know what is was so I googled "fabric deck covers" and found your shade sail. All of my neighbors are amazed by it. Great product!!!! You should advertise it more.
