About this deal

The continuous cable guide of the single cable operation guarantees the equal claw pressure around the trunk. Setting up a tree from a standing position and not having any bolts to tighten are pretty radical improvements on the traditional method.

The bases for Christmas trees are usually plain, which is why our Christmas tree skirts are a wonderful way to add some extra decoration. With the Tree Genie XXL your tree can be comfortably adjusted at any time, no additional helping hands needed. The other major complaint is a loss of tension in the ratchet and claw mechanism, which can allow a tree to topple over.But definitely not difficult, and it held a lot more water [than other stands], as I remember, which is nice.

Cinco’s improvement to this standard system is that each screw has a release lever so it can be quickly snugged up against the trunk and then tightened for only the final turns. I simply unlocked the pedal, lifted it to release the “claws,” and inserted the tree trunk directly over the spike at the center of the basin. Krinner is one of the most popular brands and one to watch – its stands require no fiddling with screws while trying to keep your eight-footer upright. At about 2 feet in diameter and roughly 10 inches tall, it takes up some real estate and smaller tree skirts won’t be able to cover it. All these potted Christmas tree varieties are average or low shedding, meaning they’ll retain their waxy soft needles throughout the season.

Additionally, it's a nice way to break up all the glitter and sparkles you'll have around your house by giving your tree something a little more homely to live in. We then filled the stand’s reservoir with 1½ gallons of water (or the stand’s maximum, if it was less than this amount), and noted how difficult it was to fill, and how likely it was to overflow or spill onto your floor. The Cinco has a big, 3-gallon reservoir and an added overflow basin to catch drips (which the Krinner lacks).

And if you want to save yourself the trouble of getting tangled up in tree lights, consider a beautiful pre-lit Christmas tree. 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.The Krinner Comfort medium Christmas tree stand is equipped with the original single cable operation. The Cinco Express is a better (and bigger) version of the typical stand, with a stable design, large reservoir, and a quick-release screw that makes adjustments easy. One reviewer notes it 'lasted all December without the tree becoming lose', what you'd expect from a sturdy Christmas tree stand. Just place your tree in the open stand and pump the foot pedal until the claws have firm contact to the trunk. Sometimes tinsel isn't enough to create the look you are after, and why should the tree be the only thing to light up?

The Krinner grips the tree trunk with five claws that you tighten by stepping on a ratcheting foot pedal, instead of turning a set of bolts into the bottom of the tree trunk, like nearly every other tree stand. The majority of the Krinner’s reservoir is enclosed, and there is only a small space near the trunk for watering. We also like the Cinco C-144E Express, which remains a reliable backup choice after several years of considering new models.

According to the manufacturer, this problem can be eliminated by using a small padlock to secure the lock toggle in place (you could also use a little bolt). 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.
