To anyone with an EZup that the Frame Broke!

Post by Painted Ink. Izzy on Sun Oct 23, 2011 10:22 pm

I have not used this but I thought I would share what I came a across that could come in handy if your frame breaks but the canopy is still good. Instead of buying a whole new EZup you can just buy the frame... http://www.macsports.com/Tent-Frame-and-Carry-Bag-Only-p/asi-part-100.htm they also have a collapsible wagon I am looking to buy as my fat max pulling handle broke. Not to say I won't still take the fat max but perhaps use it for balloon twisting not FP.... Not sure yet but thought you I would share!


Sorry I haven't been around I got in with a local group of party artists and have been busy non stop! She is keeping me busy and I am learning soooooo much! I will hopefully get more time at night to update and share all the tips and tricks I am learning!

Thank you SO much for that link...I would never have thought of looking for just the frame. I've repaired my EZ up but don't know how long it will last and I spent quite a bit of money on 'waterproofing' spray for the cloth top so would want to keep using it! ...AND...the portable wagon...I've looked at these and this is by far the least expensive...Now, if they only ship to Canada!!

My commercial canopy cost $200.00 but I got it on sale at Home Depot for $149.99... I used it 4 times and the zipper broke on the storage bag, which is on wheels. I took it back to Home Depot and they replaced the bag on the spot. Then, after using it only a couple of more times, one of the metal pieces along the roof perimeter snapped in half while setting it up. I took the whole thing back to Home Depot and they replaced the entire unit... After that, I decided to stop using the canopy everyday in the park. I use a collapsible table (from Sports Authority) and a red collapsible wagon. My whole set up fit in the wagon...even my beach umbrella. I set up under the same elm tree every year and don't even need the umbrella unless I stay after 5:00pm (when the sun shifts)... The collapsible wagon was a find from Aldi's...$50.00... Love it!!! I save the canopy from wear and tear by using it only when absolutely necessary at big events...
Maybe if I figure out how to post a picture on the internet then one day I could show my set-up...

I couldn't understand how the whole unit is $200, the the link you posted Izzy is only $49.99 for the frame and bag. Is the canopy $150....WOW!

I need a new canopy soon. Holes and purple duct tape aren't so pretty! But my frame looks good!

Hey manabanana! Have you seen the new 'patterned' duct tape at Michael's? Zebra stripes...tiger patterns...poka-dots, great neon colours...just keep patching the #@($@ thing...sooner or later you will actually have an indestructable...eye catching cover! Smile

Awesome! Thanks so much! This will save me $50 as long as the shipping isn't crazy.

Nope! I see it is free shipping. I have TWO canopies! Sweet!

I haven't been able to be on here in a while and when I saw this I just had to log on immediately and share!! I need to get one first. I just bought a collapsible wagon. My fat max handle already broke and honestly it doesn't fit very well in my car... It will be retired until I trade in my little car and upgrade to a suv of some sort. I am the collapsable wagon should hold my table and chair and paint water etc...

I saw on here the tall director chair from EarthProducts....GREAT chair but I can't figure out how to pull up the side table. Any suggestions if you have one.

I love that aldi wagon! What a brilliant idea to just put everything in to cart it to set up.

However, even tho' they're international there was NO Canada or contact for Canada available...*sniff*
