Yes if tied down properly. However, not during extremely windy conditions. The instructions state " This product is not intended to be used during heavy rain, wind, hail, snow or other inclement weather." And "The shelter top, screen, and sun wall (if included) should be carefully removed during windy conditions to avoid damage to product or personal injury."

We put the stakes in the uprights and tied the canopy down with the included ties and stakes. It went through a medium storm and was fine. If it was a stronger storm, we would have used addition ties downs or taken the screen and canopy off.

Not attached to the canopy, it's attached to the frame under the edge of the canopy. Wrapped outside the legs, and at each leg with hooks to the top of the frame.

It isn't attached and yes wasps crawl up the screen and through the gap.

answer 3
There are hooks that attach to the frame once it is up and expanded. The bottom flap falls to the ground and flips out from the shelter. There are attachments at the bottom of each upright. We were camping with lots of flies and it kept them out.

answer 4
We do have a few ants that get in, and other crawling bugs. It hooks at it pole at the top and bottom. On the bottom there is extra tarp and you could lay rock or log to for sure to keep stuff out.
At the top there is a small gap where once in a blue moon you could get a bee once in awhile, but we haven't gotten but one in the weeks we have been camping, or a fly here or there from the top gap.
We like it so much we just got a second one.

Concrete anchors drilled into the concrete? However, the top and screen still need to be tied down. If not permanent, tie canopy to milk jugs filled with water! The wind can push this around.
answered 5 months, 2 weeks ago
By

answer 2
you can bolt legs to the ground or like I did, secure, (anchor) tent with gallons of milk filled with water or some other weight mechanism.

But again, you have the option of bolting to the ground for permanent setup.

You will need to tie down to prevent it from blowing away. We use awning tie downs that can screw down in the ground. The tie downs can be found in the camping section at Walmart. They look like a big screw with a loop at the top. I suggest you use four of them. They come two in a box for about $9. If you are just leaving it up for a day without wind no need to tie down.

The instructions state " DO NOT use gas or flame sources under or near this product." Then "WARNING: Keep all flame and heat sources away from this tent fabric." And then "This tent meets the flammability requirements of CPAI-84. The fabric may burn if left in continuous contact with any flame source. The application of any foreign substance to the tent fabric may render the flame-resistant properties ineffective."
