45° Windproof Umbrella
45° Windproof Umbrella

When we come into the public place with umbrella in a rainy day,the umbrella often stays outdoors to dry up the water.However, the rainy day often is with the wind, so the umbrella is easy to the blw away, which brings a lot of inconvenience. Through our survey, we find that the ordinary umbrellas stretch on the ground with 45°. As shown in the picture, when the umbrellas stretch on the ground, the 45°umbrella handles can increase the area between the umbrella and the ground to increase resistance, withatanding the wind.
