Title: Fixing structure for large-size sunshade

Abstract: Fixing structure for large-size sunshade, including a series of chain elements, a locating seat and a locating pin. The series of chain elements are composed of several identically-sized chain elements looped with each other and tied to a middle section of a sunshade pull cord. Two ends of the series of chain elements are respectively connected with an upper cord body and a lower cord body of the pull cord. The locating seat is locked on a lower end of the sunshade stem and has two cantilevers parallel to each other. The two cantilevers define therebetween a split for the chain element to pass therethrough. Each of the cantilevers is formed with a locating notch opposite to the other. The locating pin is a rectangular bar member having a length able to cross two sides of the split. The locating pin has a width corresponding to the width of the locating notch of the locating seat. One end of the locating pin is pivotally connected in the locating notch of one cantilever, while the other end thereof is able to bridge over the split to be latched in the locating notch of the other cantilever. The series of chain elements are passed through the split and chucked by the two cantilevers on two sides of the split so as to fix the pull cord and then the locating pin is latched in the locating notches so as to prevent the chain elements from slipping out of the split.
