In–Ground Sockets secure Market Umbrellas, Cafe Barriers and many other products to the ground.

Whether its for an outdoor dining area, a council municipal area, or even your own backyard, in-ground sockets make it easy to keep your umbrella safely where you need it.

There’s no need to worry about the wind blowing your umbrellas or barriers away or them toppling over. In-ground sockets are designed to keep them firmly in place, no matter what the weather conditions are.

In some council areas in-ground sockets are an essential addition for market umbrellas.

Weight Bags

If In-Ground Sockets or Slip Bolts are not an option for your outdoor dining area then Awnet Weight Bags are another option.

Available in 10kg & 15kg weights to securely hold your Market Umbrellas and Cafe Barriers in place.

Awnet’s weight bags are filled with galvanised steel punchings so there is no leaking mess commonly associated with sand filled weight bags.

Weight Plates

Awnet’s patented Weight Plate system allows for a solid, semi-permanent low profile solution with a clean, neat finish. Each 14kg powder coated weight plate slips over the base pole and can be secured in the corners.

This system is ideal where bases do not have to be bought in regularly and still has the flexibility to be moveable if required.

Concrete Base

Awnet’s concrete insert base is ideal for when you need maximum stability but don’t have the luxury of installing an In-Ground Socket.

Made from galvanized mild steel, measuring 900mm square and holding four concrete blocks these bases weigh around 80kg.
A larger version holding eight concrete blocks and weighing around 140kg is also available.

*NOTE*  These are custom made bases and generally will not meet Local Council Compliance Standards.

Slip Bolts

Awnet has developed and patented a unique ‘slip bolt’ system.

This simple but very effective and safe system is easy to install & dismantle with minimum drilling & construction.

Slip bolts can be used to secure Market Umbrellas, Café Barriers, Street Furniture and drop blinds.

This concept has been tested at the Monash University Wind Tunnel with winds in excess of 120kph and the slip bolts did not fail.
