You can rely on the Oztrail Base Pod Kit to anchor your Gazebo, whether you’re setting up for your outdoor sporting event, pop-up market stall or backyard barbeque.
We all know that you can plan everything down to the last detail, but at the last second, disaster will strike! You’ll get there and there’s no soft ground to pitch on, the weather could take a nasty turn, or you’ve left your pegs and mallet at home. That’s why you’ve got to add a Base Pod Kit to your arsenal to prevent any last minute mishaps.
This kit comes with four pods, so and all you have to do it fill them with water or sand, attach it to the base of each leg, and voila! Your gazebo is secured.When you’re all done, just empty out the contents of the pods, and you’re ready for to pack up for easy transport. Things don’t always go to plan, so make sure you have the Base Pod Kit in your arsenal for anchoring your gazebo.
We use these when we go to the beach, fill them with sand and the gazebo doesn’t move. Even better we bought some sand pegs and add them to the mix and the gazebo is going nowhere no matter how much wind! Just tip the sand out and your away at the end of the day!
I have used them at three day markets. I filled them with water and on the third market one of them started leaking from a hole where the screw goes in.
I like the idea to use water that I can pour out after the day, but I might invest in some sandbags instead as it is less bulky and won't start leaking :)
Hey Lene, Oh no, that's no good! The best way to fill these pods is by using water - saves any heavy lifting. We're sorry that one of your pods has sprung a leak, please give us a call (1300 914 007), we'd like to do everything we can to fix the problem.
Trying to decide which to get for market stall gazebo. Will be pre filling with sand. Looks like the sandbags may be quicker to attach (pods a wee bit more fiddly) but would you say the sand bags would be as robust/secure as the pods?
The Oztrail Base Pod Kits are a great little product & will fit snuggly around your gazebo legs. The sandbags would be a little more malleable and could work just as well provided that you've got them positioned nicely over the feet of your gazebo.
I have some promotional marquees I need weights for and the legs are 45mm hexagonal.
Unfortunately, the holes in the Oztrail Base Pods aren't going to be quite big enough for your marquee legs. They fit snugly around the legs of the Oztrail gazeboes which are a fair bit smaller than 45mm hex.
Will these pods fit the Coleman deluxe gazebo ?
Unfortunately, the Coleman Gazebos have a slightly different shaped pole which means that they don't fit within the Oztrail Base Pods.
Hi. Would these pods eliminate the use of the guy ropes or are they still required? Thanks
If you're on soft ground and able to guy your gazebo out then we would always recommend that you do so. But if you're on hard ground, then the Base Pod Kit is an alternative to guy ropes.
Hi what is the weight of each pod when filled with water as many markets have a regulation on weight per leg.
I've just checked with Oztrail, and each pod in the kit will weigh approximately 8kg filled with water, 11.5kg filled with sand.
I have a Oztrail deluxe gazebo with three walls.
