Why Do I Need Canopy Weights?
Pop up tent leg weights are essential to displaying your canopy in areas where you are unable to stake your tent frame down into the ground – because of local regulations, or because the ground or hard surface make it impossible.
Displaying a pop up tent outdoors in windy conditions without tent weights can not only be an expensive issue to remedy, but also a disastrous one. Strong winds can appear quickly during stormy days or even during seemingly calm days – creating an instant safety hazard. If a tent is not secured and leaves the ground or display surface, it can turn into a dangerous flying object that is capable of serious damage to other vendor tents, automobiles, and people in the immediate and surrounding area.
Many craft shows, festivals, and fairs take place on sidewalk-lined city streets which are not places where vendors have the time or ability to stake a pop up tent down. Using a set of canopy weights makes for an easier and quicker set up time. Instead of having to stake the tent down (which can be a long process if you’re staking down on something like concrete), just attach a set of pop up tent weights around the legs of your tent to keep it stable and grounded.
Types of Pop Up Tent Weights We Offer
All of our canopy weights are designed to be secured to the base of the tent frame leg. This is much safer than suspending them from the corners of your tent, which is an unsafe option we see competitors offering. We offer an array of different tent leg weights that will have you ready for any outdoor application. These canopy weights options include:
Our steel base plates are the some of our most popular tent leg weights. These plates are black powder coated steel, designed to be long lasting for indoor and outdoor use. They’re also the easiest to use -- attach them around your pop up tent legs to secure them in place, no extra steps required. We offer three weight sizes including 11lbs, 22lbs and 44lbs. If you still need additional weight, these steel plates are stackable to provide maximum support and safety.
Our 11lb tent weight plate slides over the top of the tent foot, locking it in place and preventing it from moving. For our 22lb and 44lb tent weight options, interlock the weights around the tent leg, which will keep it firmly anchored to the ground.
- 11lb Base Plate: Fit up to 1.5” pole diameter
- 22lb Base Plate: Fit up to 2.0” pole diameter
- 44lb Base Plate: Fit up to 2.0” pole diameter
Sandbag Weights for Tents
Our canopy sand bags fill with sand, zipper close, and then secure together around your tent, providing a tight, secure fit. These canopy weights are extremely easy to use on multiple sizes and styles of canopy tents. We offer two different sizes: 25lbs and 50lbs - when filled with sand. The 25lb option secures using a clip while the 50lb option employs hook and loop fasteners for a snug, consistent fit. Both size sandbags are constructed from a black polyester.
- Tent Sandbag Weights: Fits multiple styles of tent legs
Water Tent Weights
Our Water Tent Weights are made from heavy-duty plastic and can be filled with water to create weights up to 22 pounds. Each of these containers has a cross-shaped slot cut into it to allow the tent leg to lock into place inside the container, preventing it from moving. They are easy to fill and empty by simply unscrewing a cap located on the top of the container and pouring out. These canopy weights are also stackable for extra security and safety in windy conditions.
- 22lb Tent Water Weight: Fits up to 1.5” pole diameter

Am I able to stack the canopy weights?
