A: Without more information, this is a difficult question to answer. This is designed to accept 4"X4" posts, so if you are thinking about that application, it will depend on the nature of your soil and the design of your sun shade. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
A: Unfortunately, we can't speak to how well our products will perform outside of their intended use. We do always love to hear feedback from customers that do find creative uses for them so if you do end up trying this out, we'd love to hear how it went!
A: Probably. You need to be able to screw it into the ground (Dirt). You can attach a 2x4 or 4x4 block to the top to mount the shade support shaft on or attach directly to the umbrella (or shade support mast).
A: It will stand up under the pressure. It has been holding a 4 x 4 fence post up for over 2 yrs now. I screws into the ground and is screwed into black clay type dirt at my area. This dirt locks onto objects which in our case would make it difficult to remove the stake when you was through with the "temporary" sun shade.
A: Hello, thank you for your interest in Mayne products! Our ground screws have not been tested on any other load besides our mail posts as that is their intended use.
A: No,I would not use it, it's for light use
A: I don't think that's going to fit. I used a standard 4x4 (i.e., 3.5x3.5) and it was a tight fit at the bottom. So, anything larger than that isn't likely to work unless you shave it off on two sides.
A: Yes it fit fine.
A: Yes. I used mine with a 4X4 pressure treated post. When you install the screws it is very tight.
A: The dimensions of the ground screw are 3.75in L x 2.88in W x 26.75in H. The opening for the wood post is 3.5in
A: Probably not, it tends to be a snug fit on the two sides
A: I would expect it to work fine.

A: Super easy install and plenty stable.
A: These should work for you.
A: Yes, and could actually handle more weight. I built my fencing using heavy wood so these work nicely.
