Offset Patio Umbrella – The most common patio umbrella is the crank umbrella with a pole that passes through the center of the outdoor table. These umbrellas have a support that is under the table to keep it straight. The crank on the pole is used to open and close the umbrella strap. Once opened, the umbrella works as a sunscreen and most of it can be tilted to block the sun at various angles. These umbrellas come in a couple of different heights and an infinite variety of colors and designs.
The side pole umbrella is the most versatile patio umbrella made today. Sometimes they are known as off-set or cantilever umbrellas. The post that holds this type of umbrella sits on a very heavy, rather large base. It goes up for about 1 foot and then goes off about 5 feet or less at a slight angle. At the top, there is a set that has another part of the pole in parallel to the ground. There is a hook in this part of the pole that the top of the umbrella connects to. The umbrella continues to hover over an area that wants shade. You can hang on your chairs in the living room or in your living room outdoors. Some of these umbrellas open with a crank and some just push up. They also have the option to tilt or just pass the time, and they are very easy to remove the pole, to save. The side post umbrella is the most expensive umbrella in the yard.
