Slimline Umbrella Stand
The good: It actually works. We have two golf-size umbrellas and this keeps both of them upright, even when they are very wet. The profile is very slim so it is a good fit in a small location. The price is great, as I didn't want to spend ~$100, which is what other heavy stands seem to cost.

More uses than just umbrellas
As a disabled person with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), I have found this stand to be perfect for my canes, reachers and shoe horn. So nice having a dedicated spot for my daily tools.

5 umbrellas in one corner
I am thrilled with this find. Probably won't work with collapsible compact umbrellas, but works GREAT with golf umbrellas, long-handled umbrellas and children's umbrellas. We even have the ladybug umbrella (the one with eyes on the top) in this contraption. I have been looking for a compact storage solution for umbrellas and finally found it in this product. Takes up a tiny footprint. Weighted so it won't tip over. Easy to pick up and leave outside my door when the umbrellas are wet. Genius.
