I had the same canopy for years, I got lazy one winter and let the snow accumulate to much causing the frame to bend down to about 5 feet high. 

I'd give it a pass as long as you anchor it well. I used 50lb bags of gravel and never had a issue

I bypassed the cheap version and went for the good stuff:

Has anyone bought and used this Impact Wrench?

Do you like it?

Digital torque wrench (https://www.harborfreight.com/12-in-drive-digital-torque-wrench-64916.html) seems to be a winner. Pricy but at least marginally cheaper than anything else I could find with the same capabilities in a quick search. Purchased because somewhere along the line porsche has decided they really like "initial torque plus angle" torque specs and we didn't want to try to manually measure 120* on critical fasteners like flywheel bolts. We've now used it on two occasions with I think a month between them and it worked just as well the second time as the first.

Don't know about that one, but if you are set on an air impact from HF, go with the Earthquake line.  About as close to a budget IR as you will get IMO.

Second that, I have an Earthquake and haven't come up against anything it couldn't loosen. Be sure to oil it periodically. I bought this one   https://www.harborfreight.com/automotive/impact-wrenches/12-in-aluminum-air-impact-wrench-59185.html

Don't bother with that $50 one, it won't do anything......

Very pleased with my 73" Icon top & bottom combo. Think it's a pretty good deal when you use the 25% off No Exclusions coupon for each box. 

I outgrew my 56" US General series 1 top & bottom combo that was also a great box for the money. I just wanted the extra depth that the Icon setup offered.

Pittsburgh transmission jack is a pass.

Nice casters, rolls easily. My only gripe is raising it while under the car with a ratchet is a bit trying. "Do not use an impact gun" the instructions state. Well, you'll be under the car for an hour otherwise. Didn't seem to hurt it any. wink  $129 is way better than trying to bench press one into place.

+1 on the transmission jack.   Also works great for transfer cases and Miata diffs, and a number of other tasks it really wasn't designed for.

600 lb. Capacity Appliance Hand Truck - FAIL (Straps)

Got this last week to move a fridge. Strap design is weird, but also failed within 5 minutes. I got the fridge from the truck to the porch and then it broke before going up the stairs into the house. Thankfully not while on the stairs, but still. 

Used a ratchet strap in place and that worked fine, but still. I'll be returning it.

By "Pass" he meant it's a good product, not "do not purchase" (i.e. "fail")...
