The best

We now have 4 j hooks at the cottage . Love them.

Hi Bill, thanks so much for your posotive review of our product. Always great to hear from a happy customer!
With having that many I'm sure you will be comfortable relaxing in the shade of your umbrellas.
Have a safe and wonderful summer!

easy to use and very sturdy

So far, so good! waiting for a big wind storm to really test it out but so far it seems to work great. We use it on our dock on the lake and it can get quite windy some days.

Hello Heidi, thank you for your kind words regarding our product. You mentioned it gets windy on your dock at times, and are hoping our stand holds up to the winds. We had a customer from Kansas, that had a tornado come through. Her neighbours sheds and trees were uprooted, but when she checked her yard for any damage, the J-Hook was still standing no problem. Unfortunately the umbrella did not fare as well.
Hopefully your lake does not see those kinds of winds, but if it does I'm certain your stand will be fine.
Have a safe and wonderful summer!

It is a really good product

After years of using the typical umbrella bases on our concrete patio and knowing their limitations, when we had a pool installed last year that has a deck construction apron around the perimeter, I looked for a better alternative.
I ordered and installed the J Hook stand 2 weeks ago and am very pleased with its performance and quality. Yes, there are cheaper alternatives, but you get what you pay for in this case, and here you get a very good product.
Yes, I'm a satisfied customer; to the point I've bought a 2nd one.

Thank you Holly for the positive review of our J-Hook umbrella base.
Always great to hear from a happy customer!

Great Canadian Product!

I was looking for a way to secure a patio umbrella on my home backyard deck to provide me with shade while BBQing and stumbled across this great product online. Aside from the excellent build quality of this product, I appreciate the fact that the umbrella stand can be secured anywhere on my deck depending on the sun's position in the sky relative to my BBQ and it can be removed and stored in the corner area of my deck when not in use. The other shade option I was considering was an awning but a cost comparison isn't even close.

No buyer's remorse here and I have recommended this great Canadian product to others looking for a similar solution.

Thanks Jay for your positive review.
Glad our stand is allowing you to stay in the shade while BBQing.
Always great to hear from a happy customer!
Happy BBQing!!

Great Stand

I bought this umbrella stand last summer (2020) after destroying two umbrellas that crashed using my old weighted stand. No question $450 was a lot to pay, but I was looking for quality and I got it here. Right out of the box this thing is a work of art from the styling to the paint job. They spared no expense and it shows. I attached it to my floating dock using the 2 x 6 J hook and my umbrella it is rock solid. Easy to install, good to look at, and works perfectly. It's got to be the best umbrella stand on the market.

Thanks William for your positive review. We will be definitely share it with our fabrication shop and staff. They will be pleased to hear their talent is recognized.
Always great to hear from a happy customer!
