I was surprised to find the way this was put together. It is adjustable, but it comes in pieces which snap together to accomplish various heights. It'll probably work in most applications for lightweight covers, but not what I expected. I bought another made of aluminum which slides and doesn't require storing pieces. It is sturdier and more practical for my application.

I bought these for my bass boat. And Im using them to hold the cover up along with the boat pedestal seats. For the price you pay, i guess you cant complain too much, but these are total junk. Im surprised basspro even sells these and i cant believe that a manufacturer out there hasnt made something just like it (thats freestanding) but much more durable. I read the reviews and figured "oh, they cant be that bad for the price.... im sure ill make use." Not the case. The plastic is very cheap and fragile so you cant tighten down your cover as tight as you should. After a moderate cold and windy day, one of the poles i purchased cracked and fell over under the cover. And they are so lightweight that you have a hard time keeping them in place when pulling the cover over the boat. Requires so much extra effort and rigging that you are better off crafting your own.

They don't work well when parked in my drive way. Any wind that comes causes the stand to fall over under the cover. ALL of the posts that came with the stand were ALL warped, some worst than others. This stand isn't worth anything if it can't even stay standing
One complete pole that includes one round bowl shaped disc for the top of the pole, four straight sections of pole and one base plate that holds the sections upright. Please note my modifcation for this pole for more stability.
