Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kathi Works OK but had to use shims to level the tree in the base.
This product eventually worked for me, but I had problems getting the tree level in the stand. Since all the screws are on one side, when tightened, the tree leaned dramatically. I could find no way to get the tree level without buying some shims to stick into the base. Once I used the shims, it worked OK, but not as sturdy as I would like. It would be very helpful if the screws that tighten the tree in the base, were on either side. I asked a question on the home depot website regarding this issue, and got no response from anyone who bought the tree or from the manufacturer, so I am assuming there is no other way to fix this problem.

Our tree no longer wobbles which is a good thing since we have lots of kids in and out of our library! Now I need to purchase one for my home tree!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Rock Solid Base
The section where the base meets the tree is rock solid, unlike the base that came with tree where the holding screws stripped out during first use. It does not move at all even though I have a 9 foot pre-lit tree. The only reason not 5 stars is that the base is a little small to hold a tree solidly on carpet. I drilled holes in the 4 corners and mounted it to a 2x2 piece of MDF. Now even on plush new carpet the tree is solid with no movement. highly recommended.
