Never been so dissapointed in a product in my life. We mostly have Gelert camping equipment, and have found their products good value, however the mini-canopy is just a poorly thought out waste of time.
You have 1 fibreglass pole which holds the mouth of the canopy open - this part is fine!
At the other end, you have 4 toggles which attach to the tent (ALL at the bottom), the rest of the material is designed to be held in place using tension against the tents existing opening. Unfortunatly, it would be impossible to get enough tension against the tent to hold it in place, the slightest breeze makes the thing come tumbling down.
After a couple of attempts at re-attaching it, the stitching by toggles then ripped, rendering the thing useless.
I'd have been better off selling my tent and getting one with a larger porch, rather than wasting an extra £30 on this.
