Canopy Care & Precautions

Your FoodTent.com Instant Canopy has been designed for temporary use only. Damages due to weather conditions are not warranted.

Use tie-downs, stakes, weight bags or rubber weights to secure your instant canopy in windy conditions. Commercial stake kits, weight bags and rubber weights can be purchased as accessories directly from FoodTent.com. For added stability during light winds, do not extend legs to maximum height; the lower the setting, the more stable the unit. It is recommended that you fasten the rope straps directy to the corners of the frame rather than to the top.

For best results in keeping your top clean and to avoid small rips and tears, it is recommended that the top be removed and stored in the carry bag after each use or always store on feet with protective bag or cover in place.

It is recommended NOT to:
• Drag your canopy
• Det up on steep incline
• Let water build up on the top during heavy rains. Either take your canopy down or closely monitor water build up.
• Use harsh detergents, abrasives or bleach to clean your canopy.
• Put your instant canopy away while wet or damp. This promotes mildew and rust. Always store completely dry.

If you want to wash your top, use mild soap and water while the instant canopy is open without the legs extended. A pressure washer set on very low with a wide spray pattern is helpful.

After each use it is recommended that the bolts and screws are inspected to ensure they are fully operational and have not loosened.

Bent or slightly damaged parts should be replaced immediately to avoid further canopy damage and proper functionality.
