Gazeboshop takes pride in delivering high-quality products and exceptional customer service. We offer a detailed guide on how to put up a gazebo, ensuring you get the most out of your purchase for years to come.

All of our gazebos are supplied with a drop over storage bag (when first purchased) to protect the frame during transportation.

The instructions provided are suitable for all our gazebo sizes. If you have specific questions, feel free to contact our team. For larger structures like the 4m x 4m, 4m x 6m, and 4m x 8m models, we recommend having four people for the setup.

What To Do When Your Gazebo Arrives

Step 1

The first step to erecting a gazebo is to fix the canopy to the frame. Partially extend outer frame legs with a second person assisting on the opposite side.

Step 2

Place the canopy over the partially open frame. Align all fou corners and fasten the velcro straps around the legs. Pull out the frame by the lower part of the truss bars until the frame is fully opened.

Step 3

Lock the sliding leg connectors into place – hold the frame with one hand and push the connector up into place until it locks.

Fasten the canopy velcro straps to the truss bars.

Step 4

Starting with the front legs, lift each leg and release the pull pin adjuster. Adjust the gazebo frame to your preferred height setting. All of our gazebo frames have telescopic legs with adjustable height settings.

Repeat process with back legs.

IMPORTANT Please read the instructions provided on the underside of the canopy carefully.

Finally check your gazebo to ensure the legs are vertical, plumb and do not splay outwards.

How Do I Anchor My Gazebo?

Step 1

The next step in setting up your gazebo is ensuring proper anchoring. Inadequate anchoring could lead to the gazebo tipping over, causing damage to the structure and surrounding property. Your gazebo includes a standard tie-down kit, suitable for use on soft ground.

Step 2

Best practice is to fasten the straps to the frame, not the canopy. Attaching straps to the canopy in strong winds may lead to material tearing, voiding the warranty.

On hard surfaces like concrete or tarmac, we strongly recommend steel stacking or sandbag leg weights for increased stability.

Where Do I Place My Gazebo?

Your gazebo is suitable for placement on even ground, but safety is compromised if it’s in a hazardous location. Proper positioning is crucial for aesthetics and safety. Avoid placing the gazebo under electrical lines.

Supervise children near the gazebo as anchoring guy ropes  or straps may create a trip hazard. Never assemble the gazebo if any part is missing, as it’s crucial to its structure.

How To Dismantle Your Gazebo

Step 1

Gazebos are temporary structures and shouldn’t be left unattended for long periods. Prolonged exposure to adverse weather can damage the material, and extended sun exposure may cause fading, especially in dark colors.

Knowing how to swiftly and safely disassemble your gazebo is essential, typically involving reversing the assembly steps outlined above.

Step 2

To start dismantling your gazebo, hold the outer leg, release the pull pin adjuster and slowly lower the frame until the leg is fully retracted. Repeat this operation with each leg.

Unlock the sliding leg connectors and pull down slowly until the connector is free from the locked position.

Step 3

Gently push the frame inward from the outer legs, allowing the frame to fold inward and close. Be careful not to pinch your fingers in the gazebo during closing! Completely fold the frame, making sure the canopy is not trapped between the truss bars.
