This is an optional accessory for your Ultimate Umbrella. This corkscrew-like sand auger is first twisted into the sand 1-2 feet, then the beach umbrella is inserted into the anchor and secured by a finger screw. This anchor greatly improves the ability of a beach umbrella to stay planted in the beach with a breeze.
Umbrellas should be taken down in strong winds and never be left unattended. As per local ordinances, all beach items must be removed from the beach at sunset.
