Ray We used an identical stand for almost 15 years, with reasonable success. We mounted it on a piece of 1/2" plywood, using wood screws in those little holes in the ends of the legs. (They put those holes there for a reason!) This old piece of plywood has become warped, which is one reason why we replaced it this year. The other reason is that, after all these years, the four big screws that hold the tree in place have started to come loose.



So this year we replaced the stand with the same make and model. We had a bit of trouble getting the top ring over the legs--a little bending of the legs was necessary, but everything eventually worked out OK.



We also bought a new piece of 2x2' 3/4" thick plywood this year. We put plastic nail-on furniture glides on the bottom, which allow us to easily slide the tree around on our hardwood floors. Once everything is set up, you can cover the tree stand & plywood with a tree skirt or decorative piece of fabric.



You need to get the tree cut so the bottom of the trunk is flat. Also, you need to trim any branches on the bottom of the trunk up to height of 7-8 inches.



We just put up our tree (about 6'8" tall) earlier tonight, and it looks fantastic!



If you're willing to put in a little extra effort, and set this up as described above, you'll have a Christmas tree stand that will last you for many years. (And it won't tip over.)

Bill We had a nice wide base plastic stand but it got lost in storage and we ended up getting this as a gift. On the pro side it comes apart completely and is smaller to store than the one piece one we had but often when the center ring is attached to the top part of the legs which holds the whole thing together, it causes one or more of the legs to be higher or lower than another and then the stand won't sit flat on the floor. The pan is also pretty shallow so the water level goes down quickly. Overall pretty cheaply made.

Ben I looked at this stand in the store and it appeared to be made of strong, durable steel. However, when I tried to put together at home, the legs wouldn't match up with the center ring without significant bending. Returned product for a better made, more durable stand.

silversprings57 Could not get the screws into the holes and the legs were unstable.
