Exactly what I was looking for
September 12, 2014
I was looking for a small fairly lightweight base to work in conjunction with our outdoor table which has a hole in the center for an umbrella. I own several 9' umbrellas and already own several 60lbs bases, but those were large and heavy, plus I was concerned that guests may inadvertently hit the base with the wood chairs when scooting them in and scratch up the legs. I move the table sometimes, so there is a big hassle trying to center those heavy stands so that they line up with the hole in my table. Since the table already supports the umbrella for the most part, this stand was to help stabilize the umbrella and give it some footing.
Comes with centric spacers so that it can accommodate various diameter poles. I found one that fit mine.
This worked out great for me. They did a really good job of making it look like an aged bronze base. I think that it's a great value.
There is no way I would use this base alone with the 9' umbrellas, but I think it's perfect with a table. But again, I already own 60lbs bases for situations where I want to use my umbrellas alone. With the table this is perfect.
