Although you can use almost any straight handled umbrella with the Brella Buddy hands free umbrella holder, we think that the Square-A-Sol Umbrella is one of the best. Why?
Square-A-Sol Fits Inside Of Brella Buddy
The Square-A-Sol Umbrella collapses to a compact 33 cm (13 inches) and fits nicely in the inside pocket of the Brella Buddy.
When opened, the Square-A-Sol has a square canopy measuring 84 cm (33 inches) on any side. The umbrella canopy is square, similar in shape to the wheelchair. This gives the wheelchair user ideal coverage and allows you to pass more easily through crowds and doorways.
The umbrella shaft has not two segments like most collapsible umbrellas, but THREE segments. When fully opened the Square-A-Sol shaft measures 73 cm from the handle bottom to the top of the stem, giving the wheelchair user more headroom. The only type of umbrella with more headroom, will be a non-collapsible (golf) umbrella. But a collapsible umbrella will be more convenient to carry in the pocket of the Brella Buddy.
