how to install cover for european cantlever umbrella

You may need a ladder.

First, close the umbrella canopy and move it as close as possible to the tubular arm.

Place the cover on top of the umbrella canopy (the zipper should close downward and the ties should be at the bottom)..

Move the cover down, while enclosing the umbrella and the tubular arm, close the zipper.

Tie the ties around the bottom of the cover. Click on picture below to see the cover on the umbrella.

How do you make it tilt?

This umbrella tilts some when the wind blows but I have had it a month and have not found a way to secure it into a tilted position to block the late afternoon sun. How do you make it tilt?
A little late for this... but you need to decide first which way you want to block the sun before you place the umbrella and fill it up with the 200 lbs of sand. The umbrella only tilts one way and that is with the back to the tubular base.

Extend the umbrella and open the canopy like you normally do (placing the crank handle in Socket A (upper hole), extending all the way and then in Socket B (lower hole), opening the canopy all the way.

Then to tilt it, go back to Socket A (upper hole) and using the crank handle move it counter-clockwise until you achieve the desired tilt.

Click on "Overview" (Umbrella, website) to see last sentence "View simple...", instruction manual, page 4 for complete instructions.

What is the base made of and do you have to move it inside during winter ?

The base looks like a very heavy plastic. I would not think that you need to move it inside and it also may be difficult to do unless you empty out all the 200 lbs of sand.

what color is the base ?? Black or gray or bronze?

Also, what furniture would go with this?? In terms of metal framework.
The color of the base and stand depend on which color umbrella you order.

When I bought it in Bronze/Taupe, the base and the stand came in in bronze; when I bought the umbrella in white, the base and stand came in in a light gray.
