Very rarely (+/- 45 min)

Shit happens. Sometimes the fabric of your umbrella rips, gets stains, or maybe you just want to change the color.

Hey! You don’t need to be an engineer to understand our products, and you don’t even need to be great at DIY to replace a part. We're here to help you, follow the steps below to replace the fabric of your Inumbra shade.

  • Close Inumbra with the handle
  • Unlock the parasol
  • Lift the parasol out of the base
  • Put the parasol onto a clean surface
  • Loosen the bolts at the bottom of the support ribs
  • Remove the stainless steel cables moving each knot towards the parasol pole
  • Loosen the bolt on the crown
  • Take out the central pole
  • Loosen the cord at the top
  • Unscrew the bolts of the support ribs on the crown
  • Take off the crown
  • Pull out the support ribs
    Inumbra is now completely demounted
  • Wash your hands
  • Lay out the new fabric on a clean area
  • Shove the support ribs in the fabric
  • Attach the crown to the support ribs
    Align the four fabric loops with the holes in the crown
    Fasten the bolts one at a time
    And tighten them firmly at the end
  • Insert the cord in the crown
    Pull the cord through the hole in the crown, the fabric loop, and back through the other hole in the crown
    Repeat this step for each loop
  • Tighten the cord firmly and tie it to the looped end of the cord
  • Make a few knots and cut off any excess cord
  • Burn the ends of the cord to prevent fraying
    Align the parasol so that the two holes in the crown face upwards
  • Carefully shove the central pole in the fabric
    Lift two support ribs to make this easier
    Add a plastic bag around the pole for safety
    The holes on the pole should align the crown
  • Secure the pole with the bolts
  • Attach the stainless steels cables…
    At the top, insert the cable into the slit and pull away from the central pole
    Secure the cable with a bolt at the bottom
    Don't tighten it too much now
    Repeat this step for each cable
  • Put the parasol back into the base
  • Open the parasol halfway
  • Now, firmly tighten the bolts to secure the cable
  • Make sure that the cable is positioned above the support ribs
  • Open the parasol fully

You're ready to spend a day in the shade!
