Thought this would work great since we couldn't find any of the old style tree stands in the store, so we brought it home, pinned it in and set it in a permanent place with the locking device on the side and then it kept leaning and popping the locking device loose and we'd have to run and catch it and set it back in place. We thought it was finally settled in and was done moving, so we watered it and went to start decorating it and it popped out again after only barely touching it and it fell over, spilling the gallon water allover the hardwood floor. Needless to say, we WILL be returning this item. I have nothing good to say about it. This may work if one had a teeny tiny tree with no height nor any weight to it.
I have used this tree stand for years. It is very sturdy, and the best part is that, you can adjust the angle even after the tree is secured into the base. Gave ours away since we haven't had a real tree in several years, and decided to get a real tree this year, so we just bought another one today at Walmart. Everywhere else I looked the price was $15 more.
We bought this tree stand for our Christmas tree this year because my parents have a similar one that pivots. We could not afford the "fancy" one my parents have, but were overjoyed to find a similar one for MUCH cheaper. Let me just say. You get what you pay for. The things you screw into the tree to hold it in place slant whatever way they want so the whole tree tips. Our tree has fallen over countless times this evening- it is going right back to Walmart in the morning.
For the past 3 years we have been using an artificial tree, because we always fought when straightening the Christmas tree. Not anymore!! I love this stand. I put up my tree in less than 5 minutes. Easy to set-up and to straighten the tree. The box clearly states that this for a tree under 9 ft. It will not work for a taller tree. I have an 8ft tree and it worked great. If you have a dreaded time straightening the tree, than this is the stand for you. Just tighten the screws very well and that is it.
a chore no more. no counting the screw turns to balance the tree, no more trying to right the tree and tree stand at the same time. no more up and down to straighten the tree. put the tree into the removable, base, tighten the screws, put the base and tree into the stand, with the lever up. move back, look, straighten tree, snap lever to close, and done. time, one minute, thirty seconds. makes for a Merry Christmas!
Here's how this thing works...and works perfectly year after year! We get 8' Frasier Firs and Douglas Firs most years. I prepare the tree on our back patio by first removing the bucket from the stand. I lay the tree on its side, cut an inch or two off the bottom, and then use a 3/4" paddle bit to drill a 1-2" hole in the bottom of the tree. I then take the bucket and unscrew the four support bolts all the way out. Then, place the bucket on the bottom of the tree and gently hammer the center spike at the bottom into the hole that I drilled using the paddle bit (my brother just hammers the bucket onto the trunk using an old bath towel to cushion the bottom of the bucket and hammer without drilling a hole). With the bucket firmly attached to the bottom of the tree, tighten all four support bolts with equal numbers turns until the tree trunk is firmly supported and centered in the bucket. Do NOT overtighten the bolts, and make sure the trunk is centered!. Then, put the bucket into the stand, straighten the tree, and press down on the pedal on the base to lock it into place. Fill the bucket with 20 cups of very warm water (not just 1 gallon) with three tablespoons of tree conditioner/fertilizer that they sell at Home Depot for $2, and you're all set! As stated in the title, ours has worked perfectly for seven Christmases now, and has never fallen over once. Merry Christmas to all!
I would not recommend this tree for a Charlie Brown tree! Our tree is not even 7 1/2 feet tall and is no where near the 100 lb weight limit. We put the tree up and around 12:15AM we heard creaking and then a loud thud - our tree had fallen. Since we put it up and nailed it with rope to the floor - it still creaks and the locking mechanism has given away - the tree has fallen 4 times. I have lost irreplaceable ornaments, tree lights and now my tree has broken branches. Needless to say, I am letting everyone I know not to purchase this piece of garbage! don't waste your money or your time.
Bought stand this year to replace similar old one that broke last year. My husband warned me that it looked cheap, but we used it anyway. Four days later my son texted me a picture of the tree laying on its side. It crashed on its own in an empty room. We lost at least 20 glass ornaments. On my way out to find another stand and taking this one back. A piece of junk, don't waste your money!
I read the reviews and thought I would give this a try. The construction is pretty good. The anchor bolts are of good size and seem durable. I like the tilt feature of this design. My problem is that the anchor bolts (although of good size) were not adequate enough to hold the tree in place. There are only four bolts, and at the end of each bolt is a thin rubber cap. This rubber cap sits against the tree and has a tendency to slip, thus causing the tree to fall over to one side (and nearly falling on the floor). I took the rubber caps off, but still had the same problem. I am going to return this product. I ended up buying one from home depot that has five anchor bolts with large flat washers at the end of the bolts. The five bolts along with the flat washer pieces at the end provide stable support and security for my tree. It doesn't have the tilt feature, but I have peace of mind knowing that my tree isn't going to fall over.
As previous reviews have stated, this was the WORST tree stand I have ever dealt with. Our tree fell over multiple times (water everywhere, broken ornaments etc ). It is cheaply made and it tilts the tree regardless if you screw it in straight. The black part in which holds the tree will be crooked no matter what...it doesn't even fit in the actual stand properly. Our tree is well under 100 lbs. Everything screams cheap about this product. Now I have a plain tree tilted up against the wall until I can go to Home Depot and buy another stand. Complete waste of time. DO NOT BUY THIS.
This tree stand cannot hold a 9 foot tree!!! We put our Christmas tree in this and later that day our tree was on the floor! The lock on the base stripped out therefore letting go of the tree! Do not buy this product for a large tree.
We bought this for a 7 ft. tree since we couldn't seem to find a larger version of the old-fashioned ones and it seemed better than the cheapest plastic one that Walmart also had. Boy were we wrong. The biggest appeal of this stand is the pivot mechanism, but it's the whole reason the stand doesn't work. They made the ridges that lock it in very tiny, so they don't hardly hold any weight or take much to pop out. Maybe this stand would work for a much smaller tree, but it advertises that it can hold a tree even bigger than the one we bought. Very disappointed and returning this to the store. I wish they would carry the traditional red and green ones for bigger trees.
We bought this EZ up Christmas tree stand to hold our first ever real tree this year. (2012) We bought a 6-7ft Noble Fir. Got it home and tried to put up our tree and we had it as tight as they would go...they were digging into the tree itself. Went to let it go and it would not stand. We tried about 5 differen't times thinking we were doing something wrong. Needless to say we ended up getting a big kitchen pan and sitting it up against the wall so we could take this back. I ended up buying on from Kroger that was easier to do...no screwing and it was even cheaper and our tree is standing up. Do not buy this tree stand!!
Bought this stand after fighting w/ the traditional style stand we had... And its Amazing!! The tree went up (straight and sturdy) in about 3 mins!! We determined that the trunk to our tree wasn't exactly straight (like most aren't) and w/ this stand we we're able to adjust it to stand perfectly!! Idk what went wrong w/ the other negative reviews, but if you follow the guidelines on tree size and weight, this stand should work wonders!! It did for us, and our friends who recommended it!!
Made in The USA. Great product, this was the easiest tree putting up ever. Nice to be able to attach the base first and then put in the stand. Great thinking on the designers part!
Huge water capacity, easy vertical adjustment, what's not to love. Have been using one of these for 5 years for parent's Christmas tree, been trying to get one for ourselves every year. Finally got the job done and loving it. May keep a tree year round from now on.
This cost a bit more than the plain Jane stands, but the two piece idea is very good. You attach the holder to the tree in the garage before bringing into the house... Easy to get on straight that way. Then in the house you just set it in the stand and "lock" it in the stand with one push of a latch....
Just like it says. EZ.
This stand makes it easy to properly position your tree without having to take the tree out and reinstall over and over until it's straight. You simply pre-install the base on the tree drop it in the tree base holder, adjust to desired straightness , lock it in place and your done.
The adjustability of the EZ Up Adjustable Christmas Tree Stand is a wonder concept. It is extremely easy to attach the base to the trunk of the tree, then adjust the tree once inside the stand to find a perfect level. Unfortunately, the cheap plastic parts of this tree stand allow the tree to fall over easily if the tree is not leveled properly.
Our tree fell over twice before we found a perfect level. Once a perfect level was found and the adjustable stand was locked, we decorated the tree and it hasn't fallen (yet).
All-in-all, I like this tree stand at this price point, but wish that it had more metal parts that would hold the "adjustable" features in place better. Our tree is secure, but with a small amount of pressure, the tree will fall over. If you have small children or pets, you may want to consider another option.
