Otterman, U.S. Pat. No. 6,702,245, discloses a bracket that is adapted to attach to a deck rail and hold an umbrella with a long pole similar to the umbrellas that come in patio sets. The bracket is a piece of material with an opening at one end. Within the opening on the bottom of the piece of material, a ring is placed which is adjustable and adapted to tighten against the umbrella’s pole. On the other end of the bracket on its bottom side, two L shaped brackets are placed. These two L shaped brackets are spaced a distance equal to the width of a deck rail. On both L shaped brackets, a slot is placed for a belt. The belt contains a buckle that enables the belt to be tightened. To use the bracket one places the deck rail between the two L shaped brackets and then tightens the belt against the deck rail to hold the bracket in place. Then one places the umbrella through the opening and tightens the adjustable ring against the umbrella’s pole to hold the umbrella in place. For additional security, one places a small rubber mat on the deck under the umbrella pole to insure that the pole will not slip.

Patio umbrellas are normally mounted in heavy bases which sit on the patio under a patio table. Variations of this approach are well known as well. However, it is often necessary to mount the umbrella on a deck which provides little room and does not necessarily provide a table. The prior art does not provide a solution to this problem. The present umbrella mount meets this need and provides advantages as described herein. An umbrella support apparatus is designed to engage a fence, or deck which has a railing supported by a plurality of fence posts. To accomplish this, a railing jaw receiver is positioned over the fence railing and a post clamp receiver is positioned below the jaw receiver and clamped to the fence posts. A strut is engaged between the jaw receiver and the clamp receiver with the jaw receiver providing a ring adapted for passing an umbrella pole through. The umbrella pole is then engaged with the clamp receiver which provides an umbrella pole terminal end engagement fixture for restraining the umbrella pole vertically and laterally.

Salibra, U.S. Pat. No. 5,685,517, discloses an invention that is essentially comprised of a deck furniture mounting stand which is removably attachable to a deck’s boards. By loosening or tightening nuts threadingly engaging a pair of mounting rods, the stand may be removed from, or affixed to, respectively, a deck. The stand of the present invention includes a base portion having an upper surface, a lower, deck contacting surface, and a predetermined periphery defined by a continuous edge. A cylindrical, pole (umbrella pole for instance) receiving member having a bored hole formed therein for reception of the pole is positioned in centrally, upwardly extending relation to the upper surface. Further included are two apertures formed through the base on opposite sides of the pole receiving member to receive the mounting rods which secure the stand to the decking. The mounting rods are each comprised of a linear, threaded shaft portion which terminates in a first end, and an opposite second end formed in the shape of a loop having deck engaging burrs integral therewith. The burrs penetrate the deck to provide extra support to the stand. The first end extends upwardly through the aperture and includes a nut threaded thereon to prevent the rod from falling away from the base. The loop of the second end is of a thickness smaller than the width of the spacing between two adjacent deck boards, and a width greater than that of the deck’s spacing.

An umbrella support apparatus 10 is engaged with a fence 20 having a railing 22; typically horizontally disposed, but which may be set at an angle as well, as for on a staircase (not shown). The railing 22 is supported by a plurality of typically vertical, spaced apart, fence posts 24. See FIG. 4. An umbrella 30 has a canopy 32 and a pole 34 for supporting the canopy 32 which is mounted at an upper end 36 of the pole 34. The support apparatus 10 is a fence mounted assembly as best shown in FIG. 4. The assembly 10 provides a railing jaw receiver 40 which is positioned over the fence railing 22, and a post clamp receiver 50 which is positioned proximate the fence 20 below the jaw receiver 40 and which is clamped to the fence posts 24, as best seen in FIG. 2. A strut 60 is engaged between the jaw receiver 40 and the clamp receiver 50. Such a strut 60 may be, for instance, a single, or multiple bars, rods or tubes as shown in FIG. 1. The jaw receiver 40 provides a horizontally disposed ring 42 adapted by having an appropriately sized aperture 43, for passing the umbrella pole 34 therethrough and for thereafter restraining the umbrella pole 34 against lateral movements due to wind gusts and such. To best accomplish this, the aperture 43 is tight-fitting around the pole 34. The clamp receiver 50 provides an umbrella pole terminal-end engagement fixture 52 for restraining the umbrella pole 34, and this fixture preferably therefore receives the lower end 35 of pole 34 in tight fitting engagement to prevent the pole 34 from lifting out of the fixture 52 and for also restraining the pole 34 against lateral motion at its lower end 35.
