Dear Family Mom and Dad,
You're not the only one who's fed up with unstable and unreliable parasol bases. Many, many others share your frustration.
You know what I mean, because you've likely experienced the frustration of trying, and failing, to tighten a loose tube for the second or even third time.
You've given up on trying to tighten the bolt on the tube, as it's become immovably stuck due to rust.
You gaze helplessly at your parasol, which is swaying back and forth like the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
And feeling a little worried whether the parasol might take another flight to the neighbour's garden.
Or are you tired of breaking your back every time you have to move your parasol? And don't get me started on the fact that if you have children or grandchildren running around with their bare toes and accidentially run into the hard granite.. Ouch!
If any of this sounds familiar, I have good news for you. The Baser parasol base is a solution for you and the over 20,312 others who have found relief with it.
Grandpa Arne, just like you, has tried out 10 different parasol bases, but they either rusted, snapped in two, or put too much strain on his back.
After that he said stop
He wanted to make a parasol base like this:
1. was easy to move and easy to assemble
2. fitted the parasol perfectly, without the tube that usually makes the parasol look like the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
3. was stable even during autumn storms
A parasol base that actually worked
Are you tired of constantly struggling with unsteady parasol bases that cause discomfort for you and your loved ones? If so, you need a parasol base that actually works.
That's why Grandpa Arne created his own. It's sturdy, soft on your toes, and easy to move. Plus, it has a sleek Danish design that lasts season after season.
Say hello to Grandpa's parasol base.

Well, for what a Baser costs, I can get 7 plastic parasol bases or almost 2 granite stones!
At Baser, honesty is always our top priority - To answer your question, yes, a Baser is more expensive than the standard water-filled plastic parasol base and the regular granite stones.
And yes you can buy 7 small plastic parasol bases you fill with water yourself for the same price.
And yes we are more expensive than the granite stone from China, but we don't shy away from that fact.
So comparing Baser to the other options is a bit like comparing apples to oranges.
So if you can magically get your 3 metre parasol to stand stable in the white plastic parasol base or the little 20kg granite stone from China then give me a call and I'll see!
And if you believe it's worth it to save 18£ by buying a 50kg granite stone with a tube, even though it means having to lift the entire 50kg weight every time you need to move the parasol just a couple of meters, then that's your call.
But Christian, granite parasol bases have wheel!
Yep, correct. Just be sure to check if your patio is as flat as a pancake, otherwise those tiny wheels may have trouble rolling. And don't be surprised if, after a while, the weight of the granite stone takes its toll on the wheels and crushes them like grapes.
If you choose the one with wheels, remember to fold the parasol when you are going to move it. You'll need to tilt the parasol at a 45-degree angle so the wheels can touch the ground, and then you can "comfortably" drag the base along. What a workout!
Sure, a Baser parasol base may cost a bit more, but trust me, you won't regret it. You'll be thrilled with your purchase, I guarantee it.
And don't worry, I've got your back. I mean it, I'm here to help.
Imagine, lugging around a 50kg base every time you want to move your parasol. That's like trying to carry a small elephant! No thank you. With a Baser base, you'll feel like a superhero, effortlessly moving your parasol with ease. So, go ahead and treat yourself, your back will thank you.
And let's not forget about our amazing guarantee - if you're not completely satisfied with your Baser parasol base, we'll buy it back from you.
Yes, we will buy your Bases parasol base back and yes return shipping I will also pay if you don't think the Baser parasol base is stable and meets your expectations.
You can check out all the details in the warranty below. If you run into any issues, just drop an email to [email protected] and we'll take care of it for you.
But I have a feeling you won't be needing to take advantage of the guarantee. The Baser parasol base is top-notch and sure to exceed your expectations. Just like these happy customers:
If you're thinking "well Christian it's good with you" then I've found some customers who say it better than me
Feel free to read the reviews here and many others on Trustpilot or Amazon
The best on the market. We bought the first parasol base last year, a great product, nice design, easy to move
The parasol foot I've been looking for for the last 10 years as a homeowner.
A beautiful and simple parasol base. It is easy to assemble and move without splitting the back.
Great product! Nothing less. The kids use the sandbags to sit on if they need to get the sandals off or on.
Our great parasol is finally on a leash! We had to go through 4 other types of parasol feet before we found this ingenious foot.
Without discussion the best addition to my terrace! The two sandbags are easy to move and they actually look nice!
Now, I think you're close to being convinced.
Especially after I give you a closer look at the Baser parasol base.
Forget about flying unstable parasols that you have to chase around the garden. You can learn back and enjoy the shade with Baser's parasol base.
Yes, we've all experienced it.
Sitting with one foot on the granite block and holding onto the parasol with one hand.
Stability is the most important parameter when choosing a parasol base.
This is the first thing that comes up during negative reviews of traditional parasol bases.
Stability is a crucial aspect and it's hitting the bullseye.
After all, stability that is easy to move around.... that's pretty essential when the sun moves or you want shade at the other end of the garden😉
Just to mention, the Baser parasol base, is quite simply super child friendly.
The sandbags are plush, making them great for dancing and jumping on. Kids especially love washing them with the garden hose, which they find to be a hilarious activity.😄
It doesn't look like a parasol base!
Different.... Yes a Baser parasol base is not an ordinary parasol base....
Because if it did, it would have all the problems that the typical parasol bases have in common.
According to customer reviews, the Baser parasol base is significantly smarter and easier to use compared to others.
In any case, the Baser parasol base has received 4.8 out of 5 stars for its ability to securely hold the parasol, indicating that it is highly rated.
But what is the parasol base made of?
Then Grandpa came and said: It must be made of plastic.
And I thought... what?
Because I've sat in the white plastic chair and the legs broke.
But... like so many times before, Grandpa was often two steps ahead of me.
He suggested using the same type of plastic that many cars and car engine parts are made of.
Namely PA6.30 or commonly known as glass-fibre reinforced nylon.
Little did I know that glass-reinforced nylon is one of the most widely used thermoplastic types in the world.
The use of glass-reinforced nylon in the Baser parasol base makes it tough and durable, yet still flexible and usable, which is ideal for outdoor use in both sunny and rainy conditions.
Overall, glass-reinforced nylon is the perfect material for making a parasol base, offering a combination of strength and flexibility that metal or granite cannot match.
And it's viable or in other words - sustainable!
So by now you're probably thinking - how can plastic be sustainable?
We use Ravamid® ECO polyamide which is a residual material from industrial waste and old fishing nets and all this is converted in our production in Denmark and Europe using wind and solar energy.
So yes - I think it's fair to say it's good for you and good for the planet.
One day, when you have a Baser parasol base in your garden, you'll be making a positive impact by recycling about 2 kilograms of plastic waste and old fishing nets.
And what is the rest made of?
Not only is the frame produced in Denmark using wind energy, but the sandbags are made from OKÖ-tex certified fabric from Spain that was manufactured using Spain's abundant solar energy.
By having our production take place in Europe, we eliminate the uncertainties associated with manufacturing in China and the long 22,737 kilometer trip that most granite parasol bases have to make from China.
That trip saves about 2.3 kg of CO2 per product.
No it's not green-washing. That's because Baser consists of a small family with children who will live on the Earth after us, and therefore we want to leave the world a little better place than when we arrived.
For us, being environmentally responsible, ethical, and profitable all go hand in hand.
One small step at a time with each parasol base.
Psst... if you're looking for a superior weight for your cantilever, then have a look at our awesome sandbags.
The perfect weight for cantilever parasols
when you're tired of heavy bricks
or plastic water containers
*And just to clarify, the sandbags don't come filled with sand. Trust us, even the strongest postman wouldn't be able to handle 100kg! :-)
Just throw away the instructions.... Grandpa made sure even grandma could assemble a Baser parasol base.
If you had met Grandpa and Grandma, you'll quickly understand why our product is so easy to assemble.
Because grandma can put Lego together the wrong way.
She's a world champion at putting things together incorrectly, or finding a way to cause a problem even when following instructions.
That's why Grandpa made a parasol base that assembles in 5 easy steps, so simple even Grandma can do it without feeling like Bambi on slippery ice.
And best of all, say goodbye to those screws or bolts that need constant tightening throughout the summer.
And to crooked parasols swaying in the wind that are neither aesthetically pleasing nor secure.
Simply fill the sandbags, fit the pieces together, attach your parasol and press the ring down firmly.
Then your parasol will stand straighter than ever.
OK, I'm in! Granite with loose tubes is not the smartest choice, and sandbags are pretty cool and good-looking.
Let's briefly sum up what makes a Baser parasol base unique?
Well, in general it does what a parasol base should do, so you can have a super cosy summer lunch or barbecue.
The Baser parasol base is designed to accommodate all parasol pole diameters, making it easy to move and incredibly stable.
And at the same time we make it as sustainable as possible.
If you recongise any of these parasol bases below, with all their amazing complexities.
Or maybe you already have one in your garden, but it's rusty, the tube is loose or you can't move the 50kg at once.
Then you'll probably want to watch my video below, where I show you which Baser parasol base is best for your patio or balcony.
And avoid throwing good money at a bad stone with a pipe in it.
Which Baser parasol base is the right choice for me?
If you want to read the details about our parasol base, just keep reading below! :)
Find the best parasol base for you
Your parasol should be easy to move, set up and take down so you can have shade wherever and whenever you want it, right? To keep your shade stable, you need a good base, and if you live in a windy area you need a heavy base to keep your canopy from flying away or spinning like a bike wheel.
The Baser parasol base (with sandbags) comes in three versions to fit any garden, terrace or balcony:
1) Heavy-duty fits large parasols and is perfect for large gardens. It is available in a weight of 50 kg
2) Original is a great choice for small to medium gardens. It works well for parasols up to 2.8 metres, whether used with a table or not.
What to look for when buying a base
When it comes to picking the best parasol base, consider the following:
Stability – Your base must keep your parasol secure. We recommend a 50-kg base for a 3- to 3.3-metre parasol and a 30-kg base for a 2.8-metre parasol. If you need additional weight, our sandbags work great for extra stability.
Portability – You may need a heavy base, but how will you move it? You can get a base with wheels, but that only works if you have even surfaces from one spot to the next. You can also get a parasol base with sandbags, which will make it so easy to move that even your kids can do it.
Material – If you want your shade to last for years, you need to carefully consider what it’s made of. A rust-free parasol base, or at least one that offers rust-free, low-maintenance surfaces, will serve you best.
Pole diameter – Your parasol has to fit snugly into the base so that it stands tall and still even on gusty days. Most parasols have diameters of anywhere from 20 to 56 millimetres.
Heavy-duty bases for large parasols
The Baser Original has a patented locking system to keep your parasol exactly where you put it. The durable outdoor sandbags weigh down the base for maximum stability, even without a table. By separating the base and weight, you get more portability in less space than from a base with wheels.
Say goodbye to rusty, unstable base tubes!
Rust and loose screws can turn your canopy into the Leaning Tower of Pisa, so we developed and patented a system that uses no tubes or screws. The moulded fibreglass and strong outdoor fabric creates a rust-free, maintenance-free, long-lasting product.
How heavy should my parasol base be?
Getting the weight of your parasol base right is crucial for stability. If your parasol has a tilt function, then you need more weight than you may think to keep your canopy from becoming a sail.
To find the right weight for your base, you need to know the size of your parasol. We recommend a 50-kg base for a 3.3-metre parasol, 40 kg for 3 metres and 30 for 2.8.
Is there a universal parasol base?
Parasol sizes vary from 1.2 to 4 metres, so bases also vary, from 10 to 200 kg. The closest you can get to a universal parasol base is one that fits poles between 28-58 mm, such as the Baser base.
The best parasol base for a balcony
Baser’s half parasol base is a flexible base that offers great stability and fits into small spaces, so you can place it along rails, close to walls or in corners.
Where can you buy a parasol base right now?
You can go to your local big-box store to find a parasol base near you. Otherwise, most online stores offer delivery within 2 days directly to your doorstep or a pickup point. At Baser, we offer xx-day delivery so you can buy a parasol that will look good and last for years.
Earth-friendly parasol bases with sandbags
We use 100% renewable energy (wind power) and 100% recycled plastic (RavamidECO) to build our products locally (in Denmark). Your purchase of a base will include two of our sandbags, made from 190-g solution-dyed olefin fabric with a Teflon coating to keep them looking good through the seasons.
