Recommended Posts

My sq umbrella has come to the end of its life, i have looked in the club shop but could not find it for sale, so I have phoned today and its out of stock and dont know when new ones will in. Dose anyone know of other sq umbrellas that will fit on a surry top.

I looked high and low with no success for a squarella before the TRR relaunched it. I got a Nike golf umbrella from JD Sports. It's not square but plenty big enough and not so expensive (unlike the TRR one) for me to baulk at putting four poppers in it for extra windproofness (my word).

Hi Mike,

like Pete I use a standard cheapo brolly from JDSport - £3.99 each or 2 for £6

 

Insert poppers in the brolly to align with the roof poppers on the surrey corners.

 

I use extra material just beyond the edge of the brolly to hold the poppers.

 

This will withstand the strongest wind (maybe not a hurricane) and rain.

 

Cheap enough to replace annually

Hi Brenda,

 

TR Register square umbrellas are available via the office, they have been especially purchased to fit over the cockpit with hood down or Surrey on, they are £35 each and nice quality. Give Jo a call in the office 01235 818866 or email her at office@tr-register.co.uk

 

TRaah for Now!

Except they are not in stock which is why Roger and I responded.

Phil I put in my post that I had rung the TR shop out of stock and no date for new stock, I use my umbrella more than my roof when the car is parked.

I am amazed they are out of stock, there were loads at the office just 3 weeks ago?

New umbrella has arrived today, fits like the other one so could get some use this weekend with the showers we’re getting on Saturday.

I'm going to sound like a complete noob now and I'm almost too shy to ask... but do you actually drive (albeit slowly, for sure) with the brolly up??

Hi Pete,

       Sue tried putting the brolly up whilst still moving at about 20mph. in  a rain storm

It inverted, gather about a gallon of water and emptied it on us when we stopped.  Dok!!
