On a side note, I just realized that the top most photo on this post isn't the correct umbrella corresponding to the ProShade 11' Market Umbrella.

You can actually see the true ProShade 11' Market Umbrella in the background on the left on that same first picture of this post. I've tried to use the tilt option but can't get the umbrella to rotate. What am I doing wrong? Hello Anonymous, I'm not too sure what you're doing wrong since I can't see what you're doing or not doing. I would think that making the ProShade 11 foot Market Umbrella tilt is simple enough, but maybe the umbrella you got is defective. If Costco still has this umbrella on the sales floor at your local Costco, you may want to see if you can make that umbrella tilt just as a test.

My husband and I got the umbrella to tilt, but it took him holding the pole while I walked in circles to do it. Now it's stuck in a tilt, and I'm unable to tilt it back up and take it back to Costco!!

Hi Anonymous, oh that's just sucks that your ProShade 11 foot Market Umbrella is stuck in the tilt position. I wonder if a certain piece of the pole is rusted or bent out of shape making it difficult to tilt and straighten. Hopefully this is just an isolated issue with your umbrella and not for all ProShade 11 foot Market Umbrellas.

We just purchased this from our local Costco and really like the quality of this umbrella with the exception of the tilt option. Like the previous post, my husband had to hold the pole while I tried to rotate it in order to tilt, definitely not a great way to have to tilt the umbrella. Considering returning the umbrella for that reason. I hope the manufacturer addresses this issue with their umbrellas since using the tilt option doesn't appear to be very convenient at all. We are having the same problem with the umbrella stuck in a tilt!

There is a sever thunderstorm warning and my husband is out of town and I can't figure out how to get it down. I think if we can figure out how to get it down, it will be returned. It's too bad because I really like the umbrella! Hello Anonymous, I guess the ProShade Market Umbrella should've been designed better since it seems like many people are having trouble adjusting it from its current state.

I hope you'll be able to get it unstuck before the storm hits. My neighbor came over and helped me, but it seems likes it's a 2 person job. We took out the pin and then began rotating it until the two poles lined up properly. Then it slid closed as it should. Oh cool that you got your ProShade Market Umbrella to close. I guess it wasn't too difficult.

It's a good thing your neighbor was around to lend a hand. This is the second ProShade umbrella we're purchased.
