What are people saying
“We’re liking this weighting system so far. We filled the individual portions with water, placed them around the umbrella base, and connected them with the little steel hooks. It seems to be a good solution for us, and we didn’t have to mess with buying sand and trying to funnel it into the spouts. We still retract the umbrella when nasty weather’s coming, which is the sensible thing to do.” Amazon.com
“I got this to support a new patio umbrella. It was easy to set up, and it seems that it will be durable, as I have had plastic base weights in the past that have lasted forever without issues. The combined weight for all of the four sections is about 200 lbs, and it holds my 11-foot offset umbrella very securely.” Walmart.com
“Great and easy to use with the cantilever umbrella I bought. Totally recommend this to keep your umbrella safe and not tipping or flying off. I filled mine with water and had it around my umbrella in minutes. Set some potted plants on them …. super cute.” Best Choice Products
“This is not worth the money or the time it took to try and make it work. The pieces do not cover the flanges of the umbrella stand, making it very unstable. The clips sent were unusable because the pieces could not be pushed close enough to connect.” Amazon.com
“They don’t attach to the x-base in any way, the little clips to hold them together do not stay put, and they easily move away from the x-base arms and are too light and hold down nothing. We had two umbrellas fall over in one week.” Best Choice Products
“The metal clips don’t keep the pieces secure. Our umbrella tipped over and bent. One of the plastic pieces just broke right at the nozzle opening. I ended up having to buy swing set anchors that go underground and tying it to the umbrella. I was excited to buy these because They look great and low profile but don’t work.” Walmart
