    We broke our Shelter Logic frame - plastic connectors broke and one of the frame legs is bent. Who stocks good ones?

    We need two so also ordered a lightweight aluminum one from Undercover Canopies. $220 but parts are available, canopy stays on so popup is quick, weight is 35 lbs in bag vs 50-70 for steel frame models.

    Buy two Walmart canopies for like, 180 bucks (2x$89) and now you've got a complete set of spares.

    Or do what I did.... Wait for one to fail on someone at the track, take it for free for spare parts, then buy another one just like it.

    Gonna try this AL one as we mostly use it for Lacrosse games and light weight and quick setup are huge Plusses. Shelter Logic says if you call them they may have parts: we broke two plastic connectors. Probably going to 3D print the replacements.

    I was eyeing that under cover aluminum one too. It gets good reviews. I just ordered their hybrid one last week... I'm hoping it's good quality and will have replaceable parts if needed.

    I went with the hybrid steel and aluminum because I wanted a little more weight to help when it's windy out.

    I've seen people hang gallon water jugs from each leg. Going to try that.

    This is the one we bought. Not cheap but light and sets up fast.
