How to use our Christmas Tree Stand
Slide the stand along the trunk
and drive the cleat into the butt.
Pull the strap around the trunk.
Be sure to leave some slack
before you work the ratchet.
About 2 inches of slack!
After the cleat is in and you left some slack work the ratchet handle till the strap is tight.
With the strap tight stand the tree up. You don't need to worry about it falling out of the stand or the legs bending.
I have been told by tree farmers "We don't grow crocked trees"
But if you get one there are levelers to help tilt the tree
When the tree is up tilt it back and slide the water basin under the stump and set the butt down in to the basin.
Wth a seperate water basin you wont spill the left over water at the end of the season when you take the tree down.
