Umbrella bases come in a wide variety of sizes and weights. Bases and stands that weigh between 20-45lbs are usually intended for umbrellas that are used through a hole in middle of a table. The table and the base work together to provide adequate support for the umbrella. The base also prevents the umbrella from blowing away on windy days.
Umbrella bases and stands that weigh 50lbs or more are usually intended for free-standing umbrellas that do not have additional support from an umbrella table. These heavier stands have a longer stem or taller tube that holds the bottom end of pole. A typical 9 foot market umbrella requires at least a 70lb stand for mild wind conditions. The larger your umbrella, the heavier your stand or base should be.
