The beachBUB ULTRA Beach Umbrella Base is fully compliant with the ASTM F3681-24 Beach Umbrella Safety Standard. Here's a tutorial video that provides a step-by-step demonstration of the proper way to set up your beach umbrella base.

A few important tips to remember...

  • Use your hand or foot to clear away the top few inches of dry fluffy sand and prepare a flat spot for your beachBUB® Base.
  • Use the Sand Gopher to create the hole in the sand for your umbrella pole to insert into.
  • ALWAYS FILL YOUR BASE COMPLETELY FULL USING YOUR FOOT TO PACK THE SAND DOWN INTO THE BASE AS YOU GO.

After filling, your base should be firm and taut and you should be able to bounce a coin off the sides of the base.

In order for the base to be compliant with the Safety Standard it must contain at least 75 lbs of sand. When properly filled, the beachBUB ULTRA Beach Umbrella Base is designed to hold a total of 125 lbs of sand.
