The Step Stand

The Step Stand portable ground anchoring device.

Create a shady oasis or rain shelter in just seconds! The Step Stand is compatible with patio and beach umbrellas up to 10' in diameter. The device is constructed with a pair of connection points for your pet's leash. The Step Stand becomes firmly implanted into the ground by stepping on the center rung while rocking the handles from side to side. No tools required!

The Step Stand can be used just about anywhere you can sink a digging spade into the ground. The top section of most umbrellas can be used independently and secured in the device at multiple heights. This feature enables a fully open umbrella to be lowered as the shadows of the day become longer or when seeking protection from blowing rain (see picture below). The Step Stand is compatible with sturdy umbrella shafts from 1 1/8” to 1 5/8” in diameter (or 29mm to 41mm).
