A day at the beach should be relaxing and fun, but if the wind stirs up, you'll soon find you spend more time running after your umbrella than you do kicking back and relaxing on the beach. To solve this problem, an inventor from White Plains, N.Y., created a prototype for the patent-pending Secure Shade.

The accessory anchors the base of a beach umbrella into the loose sand. This prevents the umbrella from being blown away by strong winds, which keeps the user from having to chase it. The unit saves time and effort, and eliminates hassles and frustrations. The device ensures that bystanders are not injured by a stray umbrella. Additionally, it offers added peace of mind.

The inventor's personal experience inspired the idea. "When we were at the beach on a windy day, our beach umbrella blew away when there was a strong gust of wind," he said. "It wound up blowing into someone standing nearby and injuring them. I came up with this idea to prevent this from happening."

The original design was submitted to the Manhattan office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
