How to Set Up a Sunjoy Gazebo


Sunjoy Gazebos can be a wonderful way to enjoy the weather with your family and friends. They sit outside in a backyard, poolside, park, restaurant or bar to provide shade and enjoyment. Setting these up is actually not to difficult, and can be accomplished in a minimal amount of time with some effort and skill.

Things You'll Need

  • Eye goggles
  • Adjustable wrench (a special wrench is provided with the kit)
  • Hammer or stake mallet
  • Ladder
  • Roll of duct or masking tape
  • Can of fluorescent spray paint
  • Steel measuring tape
  • 4-by-8 sheet of used plywood or cardboard pieces taped together
  • Printout of "Instruction Manual Parts List"
  • Determine the space where you want to use the gazebo; arrange for the space. Measure the area to be at least 10-by-12 feet.

  • Lay out all the pieces in numeric order on the ground.

  • Place a marker at each of the four points of the rectangle you measured, and one in the center.

  • Connect the screens and stand them upright. You may need a second person to help you with this task. Use the bolt, washer and nut to fasten the screens with a wrench. Fasten the horizontal poles in the same way.

  • Connect the diagonal poles across the center, fastening the bolt, washer and nut using a wrench. Attach them in the center of the gazebo. Connect the poles to the corners and center to form the canopy frame.

  • Hang the canopy on top of the gazebo and the sun shades on the sides. Fasten the four corner brackets to the four corners of the gazebo. Form a tight triangle shape to provide stability at each corner.
