We purchased this with the TropiShade umbrella (item # 14117999) and it doesn't fit! The pole is not wide enough to fit securely in the hole, therefore, our umbrella is constantly swaying back and forth. And forget about using the umbrella on a tilt. Since the base isn't secure it can't support the weight. The base itself looks nice and is very heavy. This is my first major disappointment ordering from Overstock.

Excellent sturdy base that went well with the umbrella sold for it. The ONLY problem I had which was not mentioned in any of the description was that the tube for the umbrella stem is wider and didn't fit into the frame of the table! Had to bend the frame to get the tube in which is just fine now but it was a bit upsetting when I first got it. Measure the diameter of the umbrella but make sure to add perhaps another 1/2 inch for the tube that it fits in if there is any frame at the bottom of your table.
I bought this TropiShade Bronze Umbrella Base for my deck because we get the sun near our sliding door it is perfect for my umbrella which i like to it is a good product especially for sunny California at a good price.
I was expecting this to be more substantial for the price. I had gotten a cast iron base a few years ago and it was much heavier and of better quality for about the same price. I should have read how heavy it was before I chose to order it. But I had bought two 9-foot umbrellas after having gotten an 11-foot one previously, so these umbrellas are lighter in weight so this will suffice. If you are looking for something to hold a larger umbrella, I suggest you keep looking.
What is the height of the base plate at the center -- the height without the pole sleeve? Thanks.lascatx on Mar 20, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello lascatx, thank you for your inquiry! The base tube is 12 inches tall. I hope this helps. Happy shopping! overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 1, 2014
