How To Keep Your Christmas Tree From Falling Over (A true story)
The Story of our Christmas Tree Tipping Over
I consider this a fast-moving virus that strikes an unknowing, Christmas-Cheer-filled home that has just set its tree in its stands.
Guess what? If I can help just ONE family (and I know I will help more than that), I have helped change Christmas Past. LOL.
Keep a good sense of humor, read on, and change my story into yours, as I KNOW that we ALL have similar Christmas Tree Tales.
For years, I lived in a home with parents that only ever had artificial trees. There were no messes, and the trees were up on time, as of the first of December and sometimes earlier.
And then…I got married and my artificially sparked holidays morphed into a live tree. Ugh is all I can say. While my whole house might have been ready for Christmas, the tree was not. I’d wait for the delivery and then the agony of the tree ritual.
The season of perpetual bliss is a season of living hell when it comes to setting up a freshly cut holiday tree in your home. While I LOVE Hallmark movies during the Christmas Season, they really do need a reality check from their happy little world.
Sorry, Hallmark, it’s not as ‘fun’ as you make it look, and why do those girls never haul out a vacuum? Are your live trees Needle-Free? The reality of a live tree is not as simple as hauling it home and putting it in a room.
From cutting the tree to hauling it inside, to allowing it to ‘fall’ for 24 hours before dressing it for lights all are true PIA’s, IMO.
Let the overwhelming joy of the hellacious Christmas season begin that every mother weathers through somehow.
What Not To Use To Attempt To Keep Christmas Trees From Falling Over
Needles, endless issues with expensive tree stands and water, and a flea infestation all made me cringe every Christmas. In fact, pine needles from the live tree somehow made their way from the Christmas tree all the way up the steps of our homes.
Somehow the needles attached to the kids’ bare feet, and their pj’s and their hair, and the cats’ hair, these wretched things even stuck me at the bottom of the foot.
Call me Scrooge, but I don’t care how good the room smelled after the TREE was firmly planted into its tree holster. Oh wait, did I say, “tree planted firmed in a holster?” Let’s back this up, because for years, no matter what tree stand we used, we had a mess.
- the sugar water made a mess beneath the tree
- the carpet stained our carpet when it got wet
- the tree stand with its puny legs always fell over and broke ornaments and made a mess
- the floor beneath was carpet it was not ever stable

The Results Of Using This Christmas Tree Stand And Mat
You won’t find any messes, or issues with the tree unlike other years, this stand, stands!
Using the heavy-duty mat makes cleaning up the tree a breeze without sap and needles directly below, rather than on the mat!
The Krinner Tree Stand magically keeps the tree in place.
I would NEVER buy a different mat as some are made of latex and will stain your carpet ‘if’ you spill water or anything.
We’ve read the reviews about staining and color transfer.
NO Thanks and that is why we chose the best brand WeatherTech.
WeatherTech is the original and I don’t do generic.
The price is right to avoid potential disaster.
When we are done at the end of the season, we WIPE it off, vacuum it (no sucking up a towel or the throw carpet), and put it away.
Krinner Christmas Tree Stand & why you’ll love it!
There are several different sizes of the Krinner Tree Stand. We opted for the Deluxe as it has a ‘bell’ for when you have ratcheted enough.
5 Claws secure the tree trunk and the ratcheting is done via a Ratchet Pedal.
Next, the water tank holds 2 1/2 gallons and has a floating buoy in it.
As you fill, it moves up, as the tree drinks, it moves down. A very simple concept to remind you when to ‘fill’ the water.
Consider this, you are not going to be on your BELLY ever during this installation.
How To Precisely Set the Tree in A Krinner Tree Stand and Mat
First, make sure to cut the base of the tree even.
Next, make sure to place the best ever tree mat under the best ever Christmas tree stand.
Place the mat and base into place.
Now, release the foot pedal on the stand, and make sure the lock is in the upper position.
Plop (well my words) or ‘place’ the tree into the Krinner Tree Stand, and use the ratchet foot pedal to secure it.
When you hear a ‘DING’ you’re done. (it’s fast like 5 seconds’ worth of work.)
Fill the water until the little Buoy rises.
Step Back. Admire. And hear Randy Travis croon, lol!
Congratulations on a new Christmas Tree Stand that WON’T create all the chaos YOU don’t need in your life! ~ DANA XO
