Soon the holidays will be rolling around again and it will time to buy that Christmas tree for the family to decorate while drinking hot chocolate and eating cookies. Have you given thought to which of the many kinds of Christmas tree stands you want to set your tree in?
After picking the perfect tree you need to find the perfect stand. If you are low on cash one can always find a large bucket and go collect rocks from around the house. A tree will hold up in this type of concoction, however, it is not the most attractive of Christmas tree stands to display your tree in!
First on must figure out about how big around the bottom trunk of the tree is in order to find the right Christmas tree stand. Christmas tree stands may vary between 8-9 inches all the way up to a 20 inch Christmas tree stand. Usually there are screws that circle the bottom of the tree once placed in the Christmas tree stand. These are adjusted once the tree is in place. It is best to have one person hold the tree while another adjusts the Christmas tree stand.
One other consideration to take into account when buying any one of the variety of Christmas tree stands is how many gallons of water it can hold. If you do not mind watering your tree daily then a smaller Christmas tree stand may do. Most Christmas tree stands hold between 1 and three gallons of water. Make sure you are aware how much water your Christmas tree stand holds
Christmas tree stands can be ordered online or go to a local store to purchase one around holiday time. Hardware stores often carry them year round. No matter what type of stand you choose, make sure to choose a beautiful Christmas tree skirt to highlight your tree now that it is stable in its stand. Make sure you do not forget to water your tree regularly so it does not dry out before Christmas day!

Finding an effective and robust Christmas tree stand is essential to ensuring your family’s enjoyment of the Christmas season. A poorly designed or manufactured stand can cause a tree to come crashing down, which is not only a damper on the season’s joy, but a danger to people, pets, and household items nearby. A sturdy stand ensures that no rambunctious pet or curious child will tip your tree over.
Krinner tree stands provide an excellent solution to your family’s needs. Their robust construction allows them to hold trees from eight feet tall (for the “L” model) to twelve feet tall (for the XXL). High strength metals and plastics allow owners to rest assured that the stands will not break or loosen their grip on the tree.
Ease of use also sets Krinner apart from the competition. The stands have a central metal spike on which the trunk is placed. After the spike is aligned properly with the trunk, the user simply holds the tree straight up and down, and depresses a built in foot pedal to activate the “teeth” which securely grip the trunk. When the appropriate tightness is obtained, the user locks the pedal in place, and the tree is there to stay.
Another extremely valuable feature of Krinner tree stands is the built-in water reservoir. Different Krinner tree stands hold different amounts of water to keep the tree looking fresh and green longer. The stand with the smallest capacity holds a full gallon of water, and the largest holds four gallons.
With Krinner tree stands, your family will be able to enjoy the wonderful holiday season. Ornaments will be safe and secure, pets and children will be safe, and adults need not worry. Krinner tree stands are an excellent value for the quality-conscious shopper, and are sure to satisfy.

If there’s one thing that seems to be a problem every Christmas, that would have to be setting up the tree to be straight and balanced so it won’t topple over. To fix that problem, Krinner has designed tree stands that don’t require 3 people and an hour of their time. Creatively designed with a foot pedal that controls the pincers at the bottom in the water bowl, the Krinner tree stand takes only seconds to stand the tree and lock it in securely.
Totally hassle free, the Krinner tree stand is remarkably easy and simple to operate. No assembly required, you take it out of the shipping box, and it’s immediately ready to use. The patented pedal controls a ratchet system that clamps tightly around the base of the tree, keeping it upright and straight.
The Krinner tree stand is available in several sizes to accommodate different size trees. The innovative Krinner tree stand will easily accommodate a Christmas tree as much as 12 feet tall, with a tree trunk of up to 7 inches in diameter. There are 5 claws in the base that grip the tree with 10 times the pressure of the hand-tightened bolt in the old-fashioned style of tree stands. The base is a full 20 inches in diameter for exceptional stability.
The amazing Krinner tree stand holds in excess of 2.5 gallons of water, which means less fret and fuss over the absorption and evaporation of the water in the base. An automatic indicator lets you know when the base is filled and when it needs more water.
Imported from Germany, the Krinner tree stand is one of the latest innovations to come out for the Christmas holiday. This one’s a beaut! No more struggling with the bolts that may or may not level the tree. Joy to the world!

Too often tree stands can make a family’s holiday season difficult. A cheap stand, resting on its three flimsy legs, is rarely strong enough to hold up a good sized Christmas tree and all the decorations, including precious family heirlooms, that it’s meant to bear. Eventually, that stand will tilt over and so will the tree and everything on it. More, some of those decorations are going to break beyond repair.
They’re not called Christmas Tree Genies for nothing. Moreover, it’s ridiculously easy to set the tree up in any of the Krinner tree stands. Forget about the times when the homeowner had to crawl under the fragrant but scratchy limbs of their prized scotch fir and tighten the screws one at a time, then hope the tree was straight and secure. With the the Krinner tree stands, the homeowner, preferably with an assistant, places the tree in the stand, holds it straight and pumps the foot pedal until the genie grips the tree and holds it straight and safe. The genies also hold enough water so that the homeowner doesn’t have to add water every single day.
The Christmas Tree Genie L holds up to a gallon of water and can support a tree up to eight feet tall. Its feet slide out for extra stability. The XXL can support a 12 foot tall tree, and holds two and a half gallons of water. To make extra certain that nothing unfortunate happens to mar the holidays, it weighs 18 pounds and has a 20 inch base. However, both of these super reliable tree stands do have something in common with the flimsy ones. Krinner tree stands, like the cheap kind, are pine green. But that’s where the similarities end!

My family and I adore decorating our home for Christmas. Each year, we get a live tree and use our artificial one. I can’t tell you how frustrating it has been over the past few years to have our family Christmas tree perfectly decorated with many handmade one-of-a-kind ornaments that my children have created, and then to have that gorgeous tree come crashing down, breaking some of our irreplaceable mementos. So I was very skeptical when shopping for a new Christmas tree stand that we could depend on.
I had tried a few different models, and each had let me down. Finally, I found Krinner tree stands and decided to try them. I have never been so thrilled with a product. It holds our very large artificial tree, which is almost 10 feet tall. The kids can bump against the tree, the dog can hit it with his tail, and I can be even less gentle when hanging the star from the top. I was so impressed with Krinner tree stands that I bought a second one to use for the live tree that we buy every year.
Because of the different sizes and shapes of live tree trunks, it can be very difficult to find a supportive tree stand. Krinner tree stands have four support levers that you can adjust so they fit snuggly against any size tree. I was so thrilled with this product that I even talked about it to my friends when they mentioned falling Christmas trees. My children even got art supplies to decorate the stand, so now we don’t even need a tree skirt!
We will never use any stand other than Krinner tree stands, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else looking for a high-quality and dependable tree stand.

Anyone who has hung a Christmas tree knows how frustrating it can be to put the tree in the stand and get it standing up straight. Add children or pets into the mix, and the carefully arranged tree could end up knocked to the ground several times before the end of the season. While people have suffered with the same poorly designed Christmas tree stands for many years, one company finally had enough. The Krinner stand is designed to hang a tree quickly and efficiently. A weighted base helps ensure that the tree remains stable.
There are two options when choosing a Krinner stand. The Christmas Tree Genie L will hang a tree up to eight feet tall, while the Christmas Tree Genie XXL will accomodate a twelve foot tree. The smaller version offers stabilizing feet, while the larger version has a wide, weighted base. Neither of these well-designed stands will budge like more traditional built Christmas tree stands do.
Placing a Christmas tree in a Krinner stand is thoughtlessly easy. The first step with hanging any tree is to take a small slice from the bottom of the tree. This provides a fresh surface to absorb water. Then, simply place the tree in the stand, hold it up straight, and step on the easy to use foot pedals until the claws grip the trunk firmly. That’s it! If the tree does not appear straight, simply start the process over. After the tree has been solidly placed, fill the Krinner stand with water to keep it looking fresh for many weeks. Krinner Christmas tree stands offer large reservoirs, minimizing watering frequency.
Christmas should be a fun occasion, and certain activities can get in the way. Krinner Christmas tree stands help keep frustration at a minimum while maximizing fun.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever gotten poked in the eye by a Christmas tree branch or needle when trying to secure the tree in a stand. Or felt a twinge in your back when trying to steady the tree as it slowly leaned to one side. I’m sure many of us has wondered what our oh-my-the-tree-is-going-to-fall-over expression on our face looked like to our darling family members who stood by, frozen by the thought of the tree crashing into the window!
If these are scenes that have played out in your home, then the Krinner Christmas tree stand is the right stand for you. Built in Bavaria, the home of Christmas, the Krinner Christmas tree stand eliminates the need to secure the tree by hand-tightening bolts. Simply place the tree in the stand and step on the foot pedal conveniently located on the base of the stand. Strong claws then grab the trunk and secure it in an upright position. The Krinner Christmas tree stand even has feet that slide out to provide added stability.
The Krinner Christmas tree stand is available in two sizes. The Christmas Tree Genie L holds one gallon of water and is suitable for trees up to eight feet in height with trunks one to seven inches thick. The Genie XXL can accomodate a 12 foot tree and can hold up to two and a half gallons of water. Both stands offer warranties for at least three years.
Available at major retailers, the time to purchase a Krinner Christmas tree stand is now. It will make a great present for under the tree!

Individuals driving home from Thanksgiving weekend trips may have noticed many cars with Christmas trees strapped on their tops.
The Stamford Advocate reports that Thanksgiving weekend and the first two weekends in December are the busiest times for Christmas tree vendors.
“People who want the best selection will start coming in early,” Lenny Scinto, manager of tree retailer Designs by Lee, told the news provider.
Often times, finding the perfect tree is the easy part. Getting the tree into the stand – and straight – at home can present a challenge of epic proportions in some cases.
Seasoned tree decorators say that the stand can make or break your holiday decorating efforts. A flimsy, hard-to-use stand can result in the tree standing crooked, or even falling over unexpectedly (think National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation…).
Krinner Christmas Tree Stands offer a simple and quick solution for setting up your tree.
These stands, which come in several different models including the Krinner Click Fix, the Krinner Large Tree Stand and the Krinner XXL Tree Stand make positioning your tree inside your house a simple, one-person job.
Rather than wrestling your tree into a inadequate stand, deck the halls merrily with one of these revolutionary products!

Couples spending their first Christmas together may be excited to get a head start on the holiday season. Gift shopping and decking the halls can be thrilling, but when it comes to putting up the tree, inexperienced decorators may be at a loss. For couples who are putting up their first real tree this season, consider Krinner Christmas tree stands.
Christmas trees come in a variety of sizes, but unless you have the right tree stand, even the smallest pines are at risk of toppling over. The product comes in two different sizes: large, and extra large for those who are ambitious enough to put up a hefty tree.
Both stands come with a minimum warranty of three years. However, the high-quality and durable Krinner tree stand is likely to be appreciated by homeowners for years to come.
All that's required of users is that, when setting up their trees, they step onto the foot pedal until the product's claws grab and lock the tree trunk in place. Even the most inexperienced holiday decorators can put up a pine with a Krinner stand and boast about it to their friends. Consider getting a Krinner tree stand this year for a worry-free holiday season.

After Thanksgiving comes and goes, many people will begin the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree. Some families prefer using the same artificial pine every year, but those who are fans of the real thing may find that an efficient tree stand can make all the difference.
A Krinner tree stand can help relieve some of the stress that comes with holiday decorating. Using the device is as easy as slipping the trunk of the tree into the stand until the claws lock it in place. Homeowners won't have to worry about a leaning tree or the potential for a fall. Krinner stands can accommodate trees that are up to eight feet in height, giving decorators more options to work with while shopping for the perfect pine.
Krinner tree stands also come complete with warranties between three and five years – users who find that the product doesn't meet their standards will receive a refund. Bases are sturdy and strong enough to handle even the heaviest, widest trunks. An automatic water indicator helps users keep track of the health of their tree as well.
Having a real pine this Christmas doesn't have to mean dealing with the possibility of an unsteady tree. With the Krinner tree stand, families can have a happy holiday season with the tree of their dreams in tact.
