Are the Synthetic Thatch Mexican Capes waterproof?
No. Synthetic Thatch Mexican Capes are to be used as a decorative shade cover to add a tropical feel to your structure. If you’re looking for waterproofing using this product you would need a waterproof underlayment such as a canvas cover or a subroof.
How do I install the thatch Mexican capes on an existing umbrella?
This is easy. Simply throw the rounded thatch cape over the existing umbrella and center the cape. If the umbrella has a notch at the top, let it poke through the thatch so it lays flat on the umbrella. If you are in a windy area, we suggest using zip ties to anchor the Mexican rain cape to the umbrella.
