Attach Upper Umbrella Arms
With the short arms connected it is time to attach the long arms. Each long arm has an eye-bolt on one end, a single tab near the middle, and a pair of tabs on the other end. The pair of tabs on the end of the long arm will attach to the single tab at the top of the pole. Remove the bolt from the pair of tabs on one of the arms and align the arm tabs with the tab on the pole. Insert the bolt through the holes on all three tabs. Thread the nut onto the bolt and hand-tighten it. Later in the install the nuts will be tightened with a wrench. Repeat this process for each of the long arms.
