... but it doesn't seem very sturdy. The box it arrived in looked like it had been tossed around in a tornado, but all the pieces were there and were relatively unscathed. It's also a LOT bigger than it looks in the pictures, and just barely possible to assemble with one person. I don't like how "wobbly" it feels, even when everything is tightened down.
Great compact size and well balanced. I wish the base of the frame wasn't so easy to trip over or stub your toes on, but after you do that a few times you DEFINITELY are aware of it. We use this seat all summer long. Frame hasn't warped or bent, assembly was fairly easy and it has lived on our rooftop deck (Seattle, WA) for over a year now w/o rusting or being affected by the elements.
This stand took no time to put together and its heft makes me believe that it will easily hold the maximum recommended weight. I suggest that metal stakes, or something similar, should be inserted in the back leg holes if placing this stand on the slightest uneven soft ground. I believe the manufacturer's warning that this could cause serious injury if it fell over and landed on someone's head! However, if used as recommended, I don't see much chance of this. The only downside is that the company doesn't include any type of attachment to connect the hoop of a hanging chair to the stand. I had to go to the hardware store and purchase a clip with a correct weight rating. It was only a couple of dollars, but it was aggravating that I had to do that.
The C stand was much more sturdy than I thought it would be. I would have given it a 5 star rating except for the fact that the stand did not come with a spring and I had concern for the safety of someone ending up hurt on the base. The base is very heavy duty metal but because of the shape of the metal, if you step on the leg or fall on it - it could cause injury. Needs to be more rounded legs!
