Hence, it allows the umbrella structure to n stand up on its own.Hands-free use is facilitated through the free-grip frosted handle. Simply cross the C-shaped handle across your arm to carry other activities while holding it.
Then a stainless-steel frame helps this umbrella stand up against the wind that comes from time to time. Also, you can slip the handle over your wrist when you need an extra hand to handle other tasks. On top of that, when there is no place to hang this umbrella, you can just let it stand on its own. It is that strong.
