In our first version of the box, we created a small-scale version to test whether or not our design worked, if our components worked properly, and if there is anything we can improve upon. In this phase, we realized that we needed a way to lock the umbrella in that worked with our servo motor. So we decided to attach a hook to it and have a corresponding hole for the hook to go into. In our initial testing, this worked well, however, we soon realized that in order to most optimally function we would need to cut into the side of our box. Therefore we decided to create an external housing for the main box, which would help us cover up the various wires and holes necessary to creating a functional umbrella stand.

The next image features our hook design, and the image after that shows our boxes in the process of being clued.
