Guide Review - Standtastic Christmas Tree Stand

The Standtastic Christmas Tree Stand is quite possibly the most ergonomic (also making it the best) Christmas tree stand available.

The Standtastic Christmas Tree Stand does not rely on bolts to both hold and straighten your Christmas tree. It uses 4 adjustable arms and a centering pin to get the job done quickly and accurately. No more time spent twisting those little "L" shaped bolts with your head stuck underneath the branches while someone yells out how far the tree is leaning and if it is centered.

The Standtastic Christmas Tree Stand consists of three main parts: the base, the centering pin, and the arms.

The base is a large plastic reservoir that holds gallons of water therefore keeping your tree nice and moist and reducing fire concerns. It is also really wide so it can hold a large tree stable. It has a recess in the center that receives the centering pin ensuring your tree is aligned without any hassle.

The centering pin gets screwed to the bottom of the Christmas tree trunk, in the center. Then you pick up the tree and set the centering pin into the recess in the base.

The four arms are attached to the base with a sliding bolt so they adjust easily to different size tree trunks. And they are screwed into the tree itself for a very stable connection. So once the tree is set in the base you have some one hold it straight, you pivot the arms into place, tighten the sliding bolts and screw them into the tree trunk.

There, your Christmas tree is centered and straightened in a secure base in less than 3 minutes. If that's not some ergonomic time savings during the holiday's then I don't know what is.
