Oppikle Pop-up Gazebo 3x3m Review
This Oppikle pop-up gazebo has only been available on Amazon since December 2019 and provides buyers with a strong 3x3m waterproof gazebo that has side panels included.
Your package will arrive in one large box and will weigh approximately 16 to 18kg in total when delivered and will take about 10 minutes to assemble at the first attempt.
Once assembled the canopy can comfortably shelter 4/5 people and protect them from the hot sun and passing showers via its UV and waterproof canopy top.
After you’ve finished using it, the entire gazebo can be folded down and stored inside the large storage bag that has handles for convenience which help to transport it.
Should you decide to order this Oppikle gazebo from Amazon then you will receive the following items in your delivered package.
- 1 x Waterproof & UV Protected Canopy Top
- 1 x Powder Coated Concertina Pop-up Frame
- 4 x Side Panels (2 Doors & 2 Walls with Windows)
- 1 x Carrying / Storage Bag
- 4 x Tent Pegs
- 4 x Guy Ropes
- 1 x User Manual
The measurements for this Oppikle gazebo are 3m wide by 3m long and has a maximum total height (apex) of 2.6 metres.
The walk-in height of this gazebo is just under 2 metres when set to the highest settings.
Powder Coated Steel Frame
Buying a steel-framed pop-up gazebo that has been powder coated is essential as the powder coating helps to protect the steel from potential rusting.
The powder coating ensures the steel is not exposed to moisture or oxygen, as these two components contribute to the creation of rust.
Deep scratches to the frame section may lead to rust that’s why it’s important not to heavy-handle the frame or drag it on hard ground.
This goes for every type of concertina framed gazebo, not just this type.
Waterproof & Uv Protection
The canopy has a 210D oxford fabric rooftop and has a silver extra layer of protection that protects against UV rays and rain.
This is an ample level of protection against rain and bright sunshine for what you would generally use it for.
The full-length doors and windowed side panels protect against rain. They come in handy when attached and ensure the runoff water from the canopy top just runs down to the ground.
The side panels also help prevent you from getting wet during spells of blustery showers.
Can Be Anchored Down to Improve Sturdiness
Included in the package you will receive a set of guy ropes and tent pegs that help to anchor the canopy down from the top section via the d-rings.
Personally, I’ve always stated that using guy ropes and tent pegs is a great way of adding extra stability to your gazebo than just using a set of anchor weights alone.
The footplates of the legs also have 2 pre-drilled holes where tent pegs can be pushed through and tapped into the ground for additional frame support.
This also enables you to screw the frame into a deck or hard ground.
Large Enough for Table & Chairs
This Oppikle 3×3 pop-up gazebo provides more sheltered room than you would imagine and can easily accommodate a picnic table with chairs or something of similar size.
With 9sq metres of dry room, this canopy can be used for a wide range of other purposes and not just holidaying and relaxation time but also as a dry work area, pond cover or hot tub shade.
Oppikle Gazebo Alternatives
The Oppikle gazebo didn’t make it into my best gazebo guide due to availability issues. There’s no point recommending a gazebo that can’t be bought.
