Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DixieGirl Great product for the price
Provides shade and coolness we needed on the side of the house, while looking great. As with most projects it is almost as easy as the directions show. We had to buy different hardware and use some of what came with the product. Sails are a beautiful color and elegant against the side of the house. Had gusting winds after we put them up and they did well. Rain runs through them the way it's supposed to. Will buy more for the other side of the house. Triangle does not come to an exact point, instead tappers into the fastener. Make sure you have plenty of room to stretch out properly, otherwise it will drop in the center on each side.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandyHomeowner Just what I was looking for
Installation was easy. I put this shade sail above a pergola so I didn't want to block all the sun. You need to watch the length if the toggle bolts. Had to get shorter because of the distance. Good product.

Our grandkids needed some shade while they played in their pool, 12' dia. x 3' deep. We looked at all of the options that we could find on the internet.
Our major concerns were the high winds and heavy tropical rains that we get from time to time during the summer in the greater Houston, TX, area. Strong winds have ripped out in the blink of an eye several other sun shades for us in the past.
This "shade kite" looked as if it just might work. When the "kit" (shade kite, ropes & fittings) arrived I was immediately impressed by the heavy duty quality of the kite. I wasn't expecting all of the other parts, but they looked more than adequate too.
I did make one mounting revision based upon my past experiences with high winds - I added a bungee cord to each of the 3 corners. The shade kite went up easily in less than 30 minutes, including adjustments.
The grandkids (and we adults) love the shade. We don't have to worry about the children getting too much sun while they play in their pool (sunscreen does wash off).
The kite got its first high-wind test in less than 3 days. Not only did it survive that storm, but it has gone through several more since then. It looks as good as new too :-) As for the bungee cords - they worked just great. In one heavy, tropical downpour as the water couldn't drain fast enough from the kite, the bungee cords stretched, allowing the kite's "bottom bulge" to rest on the surface of the pool's water, releaving the tension on the terminal mounts for the ropes until the storm was over. Then the kite drained perfectly and returned to it's normal position.
Are we pleased with this Shade Kite? YES!
Do we recommend it to others? ABSOLUTELY!
Would we buy another? In a heartbeat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DesertSun Love our sun sails.
These really serve our purpose. We overlapped two of them on our pergola. Blocks the sun but lets plenty of light through. Nice thick fabric. Held up great during a rain/hail storm. Rain drips through and doesn't sag. We got it early fall season and just hooked it up with bungee cords since we might take them down during the colder season. Working great. Love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ev1 Great sun shade!
Very easy to install and came with the necessary hardware. Very rugged design and when positioned it does a great job of blocking the main rays of the sun. Everyone that has seen it so far wants one for themselves. Looks great over the back deck. Have had it up now for a few days and so far so good. Had to purchase extra rope as I had to reach quite far to tie off the third corner. Light enough where it stays supported in place.
