The beach can be the most relaxing place to spend a hot summer day. This is especially true if you have a reprieve from the heat in the form of a tall, broad beach umbrella. Strong winds or insecure umbrella placement can quickly turn this ideal afternoon into a frustrating struggle, but more than 4,600 Amazon shoppers found an ingenious solution—and it's under $20.

The Beachr Umbrella Anchor is small enough to fit in your beach bag and doesn't add any weight at only 10 ounces, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in strength. The anchor saves you time and aggravation by providing a quick and easy way to get your umbrella securely into the sand (or grass, or dirt, or gravel). The anchor's corkscrew design and top handles give you the leverage necessary to drive it downward. Once it's in the ground, umbrella poles of nearly any size slip comfortably inside of the anchor, which keeps it upright all day long. Plus, it comes with a hole drilled in the side and a hard plastic screw you can use to create a tighter, custom fit for poles of any width.

According to one happy customer, the anchor has worked for them "time and time again" and they said that they "highly recommend" it to fellow beachgoers. They added this purchase was "the best money" they've spent on beach gear "by far."

Another shopper called the umbrella anchor a "lifesaver," despite feeling initially hesitant to spend $19 on it. They wrote that after using the anchor only once, they found that it "really helps out tremendously" and that it fits easily into their beach bag. "Everything is plastic," they said, "so you don't run the risk of the salt from the ocean rusting anything," which makes it perfect for "many days at the beach."
