How To Put Up Your Compact Pop Up Gazebo

Setting up your compact pop up gazebo is easy and straightforward. By following these step-by-step instructions, you'll be able to have your gazebo ready in just a few minutes.

1. Unpack the Gazebo

Start by removing the gazebo from its carrying bag. Ensure all parts, including the frame, canopy, and stakes, are included.

2. Stretch Out the Frame

Carefully stretch out the gazebo frame. Ideally, this is a two-person job to avoid damaging the frame. Each person should hold two corners and gently pull them apart until the frame is fully expanded.

3. Lift the Gazebo

Lift the gazebo slightly off the ground and pull the leg sections apart. Ensure that each leg is securely locked into place.

4. Attach the Canopy

Place the canopy over the top of the frame, making sure it's positioned correctly and aligns with the frame. Attach the canopy to the frame using the Velcro straps or any provided attachments.

5. Extend the Gazebo to Full Height

Once the canopy is securely attached, you can extend the gazebo to its full height. To do this, push upwards on the centre hub of the gazebo while also lifting the leg sections. 

6. Secure the Gazebo

Lastly, secure your gazebo to the ground using the provided ropes and stakes. This is especially important if you’re setting up in windy conditions. For hard surfaces where stakes can't be used, consider using specially designed gazebo weights for added stability.
