Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Substantial base Good thickness of base looks good on our granite chippings....2.5 wide parasol held firmly ....more costly than other suppliers but worth it 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by really glad I bought it I bought this to go with my Kettler Parasol and I'm glad I did. Before it arrived I had the parasol with my old cast iron base and it blew over in the wind - with 30kg of granite there is no movement at all! On the downside, on the first one I received the central hole hadn't been drilled wide enough for the screw to go through. But it was quickly replaced and the second one is perfect. 25 August 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Second faulty item still awaiting collection as the summer passes The baseweight could not be assembled as either the countersink was too shallow or the bolt too short to engage the upright parasol support. The replacement a week later had somewhat unbelievably, exactly the same fault. You'd have hoped someone would have checked before delivery. A further week on we are still awaiting a usable baseweight. John Lewis have taken the issue up with their supplier, who maybe have the same customer service attitude. A parasol purchased from JL at the same time sits patiently in the garage watching the summer pass..... 11 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent for static use As described and pictured, it is an excellent stable base for a large and thick-stemmed parasol. But beware of the weight - it has finger recesses for lifting, but lifting is not a task to be undertaken by the elderly or those whose with back problems, and the alternatives of dragging or rolling are definitely not easy. 04 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by does the job very pleased with this item, very very heavy but does the job of keeping the parasol; in place. Reason also for choosing this particular product, it's won't rust, living by the sea, others have prone to do so. Quite satisfied so far only purchased this Summer. 21 July 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Unusable, but perhaps I was unlucky! Delivery good. Pleased with the appearance of the baseweight. But... the bolt supplied was too big to go through the hole in the granite so I sent it back and purchased a different baseweight. 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Baseweight This baseweight is very, very heavy! It's also quite large and very sturdy. My husband put it together with our new Kettler parasol and it looks fabulous! Very, very stylish and great quality. No worries that our parasol is going to fall over any time soon with this baseweight attached to it! 17 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product Excellent product, copes with the extremely high winds experienced on our terrace. Caters for all parasol pole diameters, well designed. 18 June 2014
