【1】The current umbrella structure is fragile, resulting in a short service life. Because, if any one of the rib is damaged, the whole umbrella could be difficult to use.

【2】 Due to the complicated structure of the umbrella, it’s hard for users to repair it by themselves.

【How we do】
when the user's umbrellas are damaged, they can choose to share the parts which is still working fine. Others can use the umbrella parts to repair their own umbrellas.
