The rods of said mounting supports have a horizontal segment which define a coupling tip to the chair or deck chair and a coupling tip to the corresponding side pole. On a segment of the length of the side poles and between them, is mounted in a retractile way by means of knots made by "hoop & loop" like fabric strips, a cover to prevent either partially or fully the sunrays from hitting the space occupied by the chair or deck chair. In this way, the cover can be moved along the side poles according to the variations in the direction of the sunrays to get the amount of shade the user wants.
