Try this out, as I have seen others do it, get some bungie cords and hook them to your coolers. Put a cooler near each leg and there ya go. Hook 1 end around the leg/frame and the other to the cooler, those are heavy enough that even a good sized breeze will keep them from moving...

I think I got mine at Academy, but that was about 4 years ago or so. I haven't seen them around the last couple of years.

I did just check out the ezup website and they have the sandbags exactly like mine. I know I didn't get them from there, but those are the ones.
EZup.com/sandbags



They're pretty pricey on the website though. $60 for 4.

You can make you own sandbags. Get some Playbox sand and a large container. Or you can use some heavy duty plastic, tie it off, and stuff them in milk crates.

You can also mix up some cement and make your own weights. Just put some sort of metal in the concrete to hook the bungee to.

Thanks Dave!

I may fill some milk jugs with concrete and use those. Thanks guys, I've already blown more than I should have on tailgating supplies, but I am uber excited!

Just saw that Pep Boys has a 10x10 straight leg off-brand EZ-UP type canopy for $49.98.
Save an extra $10 with coupon if they honor it.
(Reg 109.99, on Sale for $69.98 - $20 rebate - $10 coupon = $39.98)

Got to the website and register and you can get a coupon for $10 off any purchase of $50 or more.
