The E-Z Up Embassy my wife and I enjoyed for ten years was lent to unfamiliar hands and returned with bent and broken truss parts. I know how easy it is to bend the truss parts on the Embassy because I’ve done it myself. In the past I’ve ordered replacement parts from E-Z Up, however when I reached out to E-Z Up they notified me replacement parts for the Embassy are no longer available.
I live in the suburbs near several large parks. These parks become graveyards for broken and twisted canopies after sports games on busy summer weekends. Instead of throwing fifty pounds metal and tarp into the dump I was determined to return our ten year old canopy to its original glory. I decided to replace the compromised metal truss parts with identical parts made from straight grained maple wood.
After the maple wood truss parts were sanded and sealed they were installed in place of the broken parts. The repair works like a charm. And our canopy will live to see many more warm days in the open air, not in a landfill.
