What we liked

- It’s light in weight, making it unsuitable for large umbrellas.

What users are saying
“Heavier than I expected, but I was able to assemble it easily inside and carry out on my deck. I needed something attractive to replace the green plastic, water-filled one I’d been using under my dining table the past couple of years. I didn’t need to use the plastic inner ring for the pole- good enough with just the outer ring. Looks good and is holding my umbrella strong in high winds and rain.” Amazon.com
“It doesn’t hold up our sunny glade umbrella without tipping over from time to time. When the umbrella is closed, it doesn’t tip over, but if the umbrella is open and there is a breeze, it can tip over. We have it poolside in our backyard, and we always have a slight breeze back there. I ended up giving it three stars for sturdiness and stability because it doesn’t ALWAYS fall over…” Amazon.com
“This worked great at first. About a month in half in the piece that holds the umbrella broke off the base. It seems to have rusted out. I need to tell you that I am diligent in taking down my umbrella and covering the patio furniture before the rain. The umbrella base was covered as well. It was not exposed to a lot of water, so I believe it may have been already weak.” Amazon.com
While it is quite attractive and has a broad base for extra stability, This Sunnyglade base is not heavy enough to hold down the umbrella without toppling. Buy it if you have a small umbrella (six feet or below), and you intend to use it through a table.
