To open a Purple Leaf umbrella, follow these general steps. Purple Leaf offers various types of umbrellas, including patio umbrellas, market umbrellas, and cantilever umbrellas. While the specific opening mechanism may vary depending on the model, these steps should give you a good idea of how to open most Purple Leaf umbrellas:

Materials You’ll Need:

  • Purple Leaf umbrella


  1. Inspect the Umbrella:
    • Examine the Purple Leaf umbrella to familiarize yourself with its design and features. Look for any buttons, levers, or mechanisms that are used for opening.
  2. Choose a Suitable Location:
    • Select a location where you plan to set up the umbrella, such as a patio, outdoor space, or garden area.
  3. Position the Umbrella Base:
    • If you’re using a patio or market umbrella, ensure that the umbrella base is securely in place where you want to set up the umbrella. The base should be stable to support the umbrella.
  4. Locate the Opening Mechanism:
    • Look for the specific opening mechanism on the umbrella. This may be a crank handle, a push-button, or a combination of both.
  5. Use the Crank Handle (if applicable):
    • If your Purple Leaf umbrella has a crank handle, insert it into the crank socket located near the umbrella’s pole.
    • Turn the crank handle clockwise (to the right) to raise the umbrella’s canopy. Continue cranking until the umbrella is fully open and the canopy is fully extended.
  6. Push the Button (if applicable):
    • If your umbrella has a push-button mechanism, locate the button often situated near the top of the pole or near the hub of the umbrella.
    • Press the button firmly while simultaneously pushing up on the umbrella’s canopy. This should release the locking mechanism and allow the umbrella to open. Keep pushing until the canopy is fully extended and open.
  7. Secure the Canopy:
    • Once the Purple Leaf umbrella is fully open, ensure that it is securely locked in place and stable. This is especially important in outdoor settings to prevent the umbrella from collapsing or tipping over.
  8. Adjust the Tilt (if applicable):
    • Some Purple Leaf umbrellas have a tilt feature that allows you to adjust the angle of the canopy. If your umbrella has this feature, use the tilt mechanism as needed to provide shade in the desired direction.
  9. Enjoy Your Umbrella:
    • With your Purple Leaf umbrella fully open and secure, you can now enjoy the shade and protection it provides.
  10. Close the Umbrella (if desired):
    • To close the umbrella, reverse the process by either cranking the handle counterclockwise or pressing the button while pushing down on the canopy. Make sure the umbrella is securely closed and locked in place.

Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions provided with your specific Purple Leaf umbrella model for safe and proper operation. Properly maintaining and storing your umbrella when not in use will help extend its lifespan.
