Krinner K67 94710 15.4" Tree Stand-Green, Plastic Metal, M
About this deal
Using a force gauge (a simple cylinder with a calibrated spring), we pulled on each tree to see how much force was required to make it tip over. But definitely not difficult, and it held a lot more water [than other stands], as I remember, which is nice. However, there is no overflow tray, a feature some other stands have that we’d like to have seen here.
Each year, we delete the models that have been discontinued, and with tree stands, that’s the majority of them. We bought this at the beginning of December, and without a doubt, it has been the best Christmas tree stand we have ever had in 36 years of marriage.

We should mention that durability of the stands didn’t seem like an issue in any of the options we tested—the bigger variable was the stability, and that’s what set the Cinco and our main pick apart.THE best Christmas tree stands are designed to keep your tree secure and stable – and these days, you can find ones that look good, too. With a unique, easy-to-use, and quick tree-clamping mechanism that operates by a foot pedal, this was the only stand we tested that we could set up without an assistant. The Krinner has a unique fastening mechanism that’s far simpler and easier to use than that of any other tree stand we found.
It's available in three colours – green, red and silver – and the makers say your tree can be up and ready in minutes with no need for tricky instructions. The gauge that tells you how much water is in the stand also has a very clear “Stop” indicator that shows when you’ve filled it enough.When decorated with those fragile baubles and sentimental hanging decorations, the last thing you want is your magnificent Norway Spruce tipping over. Last, this stand is quite large; if you’re planning on getting a smaller tree, you can step down to the Cinco C-148E.
It can handle a wide variety of tree sizes, has a large 2½-gallon water reservoir, and it’s sturdy—attempting to tip it over almost broke our test equipment. Unlike stands that require you to wriggle the tree in and fasten it into place with metal hooks, this Krinner stand uses a foot pump to secure the tree, so it's a one-person job. It fits trees up to six feet, has a deep water reservoir if you need to keep your tree watered and is handmade in the UK from sustainable wood.It’s not as easy to use as the Krinner, and not as versatile, with a design that accepts only tree trunks larger than 3. The opening to the basin on this tree stand itself is fairly narrow, but the indicator, located on the opposite side of the tree stand from the foot pump, tells you when to refill with water and when to stop filling, eliminating the need to peer into the basin. The Tree Genie Steel is all metal and has tubular legs, and the wooden Kopenhagen has a sleek nordic design.
