Hello,

Which verb do you use to close/shut/tie the parasol?
Thank you

Hi,

'Close' sounds OK to me.
But with an umbrella, the usual term is 'put it up / put it down'. so I'd probably use that for a parasol.

Note the word 'parasol' is not much used in N. America.

Thanks Clive, how do you call it then?
Hi,

Perhaps a 'sunshade'. But the item itself is not much used in N. America, in my experience.
