Sail Shade

Tools and Accessories Needed To Install a Shade Sail

Every handyman job requires tools of some kind so if you intend to install one of the many shade sails available from One Shade Sails to create some cool shade around your home, you’ll need some basic tools to do the job. You may already have some of the tools needed if you already do this kind of work around your home.  It’s important to get tools that are right for the job, otherwise it will be more difficult than it needs to be and can be dangerous.

Here are some of the tools needed to install a sail.

  • A three-step ladder or a longer stepladder may be needed if the posts are very high. Open it up and make sure it is stable before you purchase it.
  • An 18 volt cordless compact drill driver. Cordless tools mean you can use it anywhere without worrying about running an electric lead.
  • A 100mm screw driver used as a lever to help tighten the turn buckle.
  • A carpenter’s pencil.
