When the rainy season comes, the market demand for umbrellas begins to increase gradually. The prices of umbrellas on the market are different and the quality is uneven. Many consumers buy a nice umbrella for the sake of appearance. As a result, the whole umbrella cloth turns over when there is a strong wind. Most of the umbrellas will break because of weak umbrella stand.
Therefore, when importers or consumers make a choice, they should not only consider the appearance, but also the use experience and service life, as it is regarded as a product with a high frequency of daily use. After all, practicality is the key point. So how do you know the use experience of the product? It’s time for the umbrella inspection to come to help you.
According to the cloth classification of umbrellas, if the umbrella is a common cloth umbrella, the umbrella surface must be smooth and tight, free from dirt, holes and yarn jumping, so as to prevent water leakage. In the case of nylon cloth, there must be a layer of waterproof resin glue on the umbrella cover and no obvious defects or glue leakage are allowed. In addition, the stitches on the umbrella cover should be uniform, the color and luster are consistent, and the patterns of flowers and stripes are similar to each other. When the umbrella cover is opened, the shape of the umbrella should be full and beautiful and conform to the design.
Of course, some umbrellas do not have a good waterproof effect. When standing under the umbrella, water mist can be clearly felt when the rain is heavier. Because if the adhesion between fabrics is not tight, it will be easy to transmit light or leak rain, so in the umbrella inspection，the length of test time and the time point when water mist appears are the keys to check the tightness of umbrellas.
In order to meet the needs of modern people, many umbrellas on the market have been made to open automatically. For an automatic umbrella, the button can be actuated by itself.

In an umbrella, the frame takes up the largest proportion of the cost, so whether the quality is good or not depending on it. In the umbrella inspection, the frame should not rust easily and be elastic. After the frame is folded, it should be tightly attached to the umbrella pole,the rivet joint should be flexible and moderate,strong and firm.The product has no breaking marks after it falls.
