We have a non-tilting umbrella on our deck and it seems
like a simple task to add the tilt joint and make SWMBO
happy. I did a google search and came up with nothing.
Anybody know where I can find these? I would think they
must be available as a repair part.
I think I may have found one link (I'm in the same boat as you... searching with
every term and synonym I can think of). Not easy to find, and many posts
showing "... they jsut want you to replace the umbrella.." So, found your post
too - and have a new(er) umbrella - wood, with no tilt joint. didn't realize how
much I wanted that feature when the sun is low.
Finally hit this link: http://www.servicesupportlink.com/umbrella-parts.html
not sure how valid it is or how well it'll work, but thougth I'd share since
it's the only thing I've found!

When I can't find a specific product, I often go to ThomasNet.com and find a manufacturer... on their home page, you type in the main item (patio umbrellas).
You might be able to buy a part, direct, from the manufacturer or find out who their outlets dealers are and special order the part. Here are ThomasNet's list of manufacturers.... Anova Furnishings, Inc., Saint Louis, MO looks promising.
Maybe contact several of the listings and see what might be available to you, directly.
Who is your umbrellas maker, its manufacturer... does your umbrella have a makers tag? Maybe you can find and contact them, directly, from the above listing.
fIt appears this question was asked back in 2003. Well, I need a umbrella tilt
joint for mine and I am still finding nothing online. Did you ever get what
you were looking for? I need to repair my otherwise wonderful umbrella!!
I found one at servicesupportlink.com go to umbrella parts. Hope this is
what you want.

It came off my store-bought umbrella which I no longer needed. It is
push button, was situated about 1/3 of the way from the top. It fits
into a 1 7/16" diameter socket with a side screw to hold it in place.
It might not work for your umbrella, but the price is right.
