Not just for lighting

I use this as ballast for my HAM radio antenna when operating portable. I filled it with pea gravel because its cleaner. Great product and service.

I was looking for something that would keep my artificial maple tree upright on my front porch. This is perfect! I also purchased the black cover and I love the way it looks.

Loved it! So we ordered another one.

We had a problem with the wind and our umbrellas around our pool. We put a bag of sand from hardware store on base for a while. It looked awful but helped. Then we saw an add for The Sandbag Store. We couldn't be happier. They and perfect. Well made and look nice. So glad we found you

Fantastic Product
August 4, 2023
I love this product! It works great for our patio table and umbrella stand. Also for several other projects that I have completed around the house and yard. It looks great and is holding up well with the outside elements. I used small pea gravel to fill the bag. No mess and easy to find at any of the home improvement stores. Thank you!

After looking at numerous products to add weight to my oversized patio umbrella, I chose the Sandbag Store. Sure glad I did. The 2 bags and covers I ordered add the additional weight to the umbrella base. Now even in higher winds, I don’t worry that my umbrella will blow over. Also, they are aesthetically nice.

Let me 1st say my husband told me to "take care of it" when i was complaining about the bags he was using to hold something down. I did my research, made my choice, ordered 4 and forgot about it. Later my hubby says are you kidding? $130? He said he coulda got bags for 7 dollars! I showed him the heavy duty zipper and construction, quality and we filled them. They are excellent, likes the easy way to move them with handle. Needless to say, i'm ordering one more!!!!!

Merchant Response:Thanks for the great review and your dog is adorable!
  • Tough, durable, sturdy handle that it makes it easy to carry. Heavy duty clips - definite quality.

Worked great holding down my outdoor Christmas trees!
February 8, 2023
Every Christmas, I put two pre-lit aluminum trees outside my front door. I live in New England, by the water, and it gets VERY windy at times and within days of putting them out, they're always on the ground. I've never been able to find the right product to secure them and now I have! Thank you. The circular sandbags worked great and they didn't tip over or even budge from their spot on my front porch. Thank you!

So far so good...

We ordered our first set of Sandbags about a year ago. Since then we have been impressed with their durability. We film high school lacrosse tournaments all across the country so the bags have been in cargo vans, Sprinter vans, and box trucks along with tons of other gear. None of them have torn or separated. They have held up well and we will continue to use them for our lighting stands/tripods and tents.

I'm in love... seriously!
January 4, 2023
I love these sand bags. I bought 12 of them and they are SOOOOO much better than what I was using (50 pound gravel bags). Each sand bag weighs around 22-25 lbs so it's not too taxing to carry one in each hand. The handles are great and sturdy. I appreciate that there isn't any unsightly branding on the bag and being able to put it around a pipe after my displays are already set up has been amazing. It's also kind of fun to spray them with a hose if they do get dirty and watch the water bead up and run right off. 100% recommend these sand bags!
  • Sturdy
  • No Ugly Logos
  • Great Handle
  • Fits around and stays attached to poles
  • Great price for the quality
  • Great Turn Around Time
  • I don't really have a great way to store them so they just sit on my garage floor and get dirty.

Great product, great company!

I am very pleased with our sandbags. We are musicians, and we were frustrated with wobbly mic stands -- we use clip on stands on top to hold lyrics, and a few other things that cause our mic stands to be top heavy, and the bases weren't heavy enough to provide stability. I searched around for sandbags and found The Sandbag store -- problem solved. When I called I spoke with a real person, got excellent advice, ordered our sandbags, and they arrived quickly. They are very sturdy, and were easy to fill using sand from a local hardware store. (use plastic baggies to put the sand in, then place in the sandbags to keep the sand from being messy.) Our mic stands are now as stable as can be. A very good experience using this store from start to finish. I highly recommend! Jan House

Merchant Response:Thanks for the kind words Jan! We are happy to help stabilize your stands so you can focus on the music.
  • Great customer service, quick shipping, sturdy product -- the carrying handles really help out with carrying the weight of filled bags.
  • no cons.

BINGO!! Killed My Speaker Stand Worries
December 29, 2022
I thought that I was resigned to having to attempt to use this otherwise excellent Koenig + Meyer height adjustable stand with a 55lb weights on my carpeted floor. And there's only 8 mm inner diameter clearance. Instead, I can use two of of these circular bags with non-magnetic dry kiln sand or non-magnetic rock and I should be fine.

Very durable and well-made
October 12, 2022
We ordered two bags for a patio umbrella pole. The size, shape and weight are perfect, exactly what we were looking for when we saw this store recommended in a review on another website. The bags and UV covers are well-made, and seem very durable so far. Any future sandbag purchases will definitely be from The Sandbag Store, without hesitation. Shipping was fast, and the bags were easy to fill. Having two smaller bags instead of one huge bag make it much easier to move things around, as well.
  • Durable, attractive and unobtrusive, perfect size and shape

I purchased the prefilled round sandbag and I am thrilled with my purchase! The sandbag does so much to maintain the stability of my outdoor patio umbrella. Kudos also to "The Sandbag Store for timely shipping and great Customer Service. I will be a customer for life.
  • Arrived timely. Great quality fabric and very well made. I am impressed. Thank you!

Handy Sandbag

I love this circular sandbag you are a genius thanks. My umbrella is the only one in the neighborhood to still be standing on a windy day. If I had another umbrella I would buy more. I will have to have a talk with my neighbors.
  • Very sturdy and looks good. Better then the sandbag I had previously.

These round sandbags are just perfect for our patio umbrella. The wind can pick up unexpectedly but I no longer worry with two of these on the stand. They are sturdy, easy to carry (neat handle!) and look very nice. Much better than the stones we used to use. Plus, made in America -- can't beat that.

Excellent Quality

Exceptionally well-made and thoughtfully designed. I ordered pre-filled bags which was convenient. These are used to keep mic, light, and speaker stands from toppling over. These are the highest quality professional use sandbags I've seen.

My circular pre-filled bag arrived in great shape, looks good, is functional, and holds down my umbrella stand. Pre-sales support was prompt. I wish the website was more detailed with the exact dimensions all around.

Very pleased!
April 7, 2022
I bought 8 of these sandbags for my two outdoor propane heat lamps. During the year, they had both crashed down and got pretty bent. I considered all options for stablizing them and decided to use the sandbags. I have 3 on the neck area ( filled with sand) and 1 against the wheel base on each. We recently had huge winds of close to 60 mph and they did not move!!! So happy with them.
  • easy to stack, simple looking, sturdy
  • hmmmm. well, if I need to move the lamps, I will need to remove them, since they weigh down the lamps. I don't have any cons to mention now.
By Andrew
Good quality, only holds 20 lbs
April 1, 2022
I opened up a 20 pound bag of sand, filled the sandbag until it was overflowing, and there is still sand left in the 20 pound bag. There's no way I could fit five more pounds in there. Other than that, it seems to be working well.

Merchant Response:Thanks for the review Andrew. This product has a volume of about .25 cubic feet. Standard sand weighs around 110 lbs per cubic foot. The density of material can differ based on its composition. It sounds like you used a lighter, fluffier material than traditional silica sand. You may consider changing out your material.

Amazing product and customer service
February 8, 2022
I live in an area where 70-75 mph winds are the norm during winter months. We routinely have items blowing around and damaged in our backyard. I came across the Sandbag Store and figured I would give it a try to weigh down several items in the backyard- I tried every other method previously. I can't emphasize enough how easy it was to purchase exactly what I needed. Before I received my first order, I called customer service with a question and it was like talking to a friend on the other end of the line. After receiving the items, they performed beyond expectations when the first winds hit. I quickly purchased more sandbags and have told everyone in the area about their products and service. Good work Sandbag Store!

It is used to hold down my satellite dish I made a insert with a eye hook and it sits under the tripod legs and with small a mount of paracord tied to the eye hook and my portable satellite dish it won’t fall over or blow over.
  • It looks great

Sandbags work well.
January 19, 2022
We have 3 of these circular sandbags. In addition to using for our outdoor umbrellas, we had the idea to use at with our outdoor patio heaters. It prevents them from tipping over in the wind. We place it inside under the propane tank.

An unsung necessity for film making
September 30, 2021
It is often commented in the world of film and perhaps still photography that regular (rectangular) sandbags are not a great fit for folding stands - as opposed to C-stands, which they do fine with. Well, folding stands are a basic item when a C-stand is overkill, and this is the sandbag for those folding stands. I don't think I have seen them discussed on any film making tutorials on YouTube. I can't remember how I found them. They are a great design for this purpose. They are not cheap for indie filmmakers like me but bear in mind that they take the place of a crew member holding down the stand, and that they will last more or less forever.
  • A necessity for folding stands in the world of film and photography.
  • Seems like they will last forever.
  • A bit pricey it might seem, but they are a rugged, long-term investment and save time and labor.

Circular Sandbag
September 16, 2021
Recently I purchased a free standing plant stand with four arms. It blew over several times. I finally decided to research my options and came upon the Sandbag Store. They were extremely helpful when I called with questions. I ordered the circular sandbag, which fit perfectly around the base of the plant stand and it never fell over again.
  • The Sandbag Store is is very helpful. Delivery was also prompt.

I purchased two sandbags several years ago to hold down two sturdy tables on my upper deck in windy NC. Filled each with about 25 lbs. of sand and they do a great job. They do fade in the sun but not really an issue for me. I recently bought two more of the same bags to give even more support to my tables when the wind is very strong. I would recommend these bags and would buy them again as needed.
  • sturdy. Easily carried with handles.
  • Some fading after years in the sun but still holding up under NC weather.
Great Product
August 25, 2021
I have purchase 3 of these bags. They are ez to handle, rugged material and a great shape that just blends in with the base.( It only took me 4-5 tumbled over broken umbrellas to find this product.Ÿ€™€) Plus the company "HAS" customer service which seems rare the days.

Just what I needed.

I have a lovely rooftop deck over my loft but it is sweltering in the summertime. It’s also quite breezy up there and no umbrella stands we’re doing the trick to keep my shade from flying away. I filled two of these sandbags up and haven’t had a problem since. And they are much better than a ridiculously large umbrella base that takes up 1/2 the deck! They have been out in the beating down sun and rain for the past 3 months and are holding up very well! Highly recommend these!
  • Sturdy. Nice buckle to keep them in place.
  • Difficult to buckle when they are full of sand.

I just ordered a second pair if these with UV covers. We periodically get a lot of wind and would have to run outside and remove our umbrellas from the base or else they would blow over, damaging the umbrella. We put two round bags on one umbrella and 50 lbs of playground sand (Home Depot) filled both. Super easy to fill and they are hardly noticeable on the black umbrella stand. And they arrived very quickly.
  • Easy to fill, well made and they work!

I got three of these for art- and card-display spinners for my pop-up craft booth. They are the BEST. I brag about them to every other vendor who stops by. They are so well made and beautiful and FUNCTIONAL. High winds? No problem. Toddlers spinning the racks unsupervised? No problem. I can't believe I waited this long to find this product. I love them so much. You pay for quality, and they are SO worth it.

The best quality ever. Bought two works 100%. My daughter also bought two, she can't believe how easy it is to fill with the zip bags. Such a great idea with zip bags. I would recommend these round sand bags weights for your patio.

Who knew you could buy the perfect size sandbags for outdoor heating lamps and umbrella bases? We bought 2 circular sandbags for each of our heating lamps and umbrella bases and they haven't moved AT ALL even on the windiest days with strong ocean breezes coming through the patio.
  • Easy to fill, sand stays enclosed, and the perfect fit!
  • ZERO!!!!!

Our patio table flipped over one windy day despite having a weighted base. I found this already filled bag, and it was exactly what we needed at a great price. Shipping was fast, too. I’m not worried about our table flipping anymore.

Awesome Sandbag
February 4, 2021
After countless searches looking for something to weigh down my deck umbrella, I came across these circular sandbags. Ended up buying 2 and I have to say they do an excellent job keeping my umbrella and stand firmly on my deck. Pretty easy to fill and the latch mechanism makes it so easy to keep together. I've only owned them for a few months but the material that they're made of, I will say is going to last for quite some time. Very happy with my purchase. 5 stars!!!

Perfect fit and weight!
February 3, 2021
These circular sandbags are a perfect fit and weight for our outdoor patio tables with umbrellas. We had been having problems with the tables and chairs being blown around (even without the umbrellas) by our 30-50 mph winds. This last weekend the tables with furled down umbrellas stayed put, while the steel chairs were all over. We have had these in service a year now with pea-sized gravel and they are holding up great.
  • Heavy duty.
  • Clip tightly around the table post.
  • Weathering well so far.
  • None discovered.

Works like a charm
February 3, 2021
We researched many companies and found the Sandbag Store to purchase from as you are made in America. As a result, we are extremely happy with our circular sandbags for our outdoor umbrella stands. We had to double up on them as it can get windy but so worth the cost to be assured of the quality and effectiveness of the sandbags. Highly recommended.
  • Good quality and size.
  • Not really. I suggest when you buy two sandbags, there is a slight discount.

Excellent weight for our umbrellas
February 2, 2021
I ordered five of these circular sandbags to hold our umbrellas in gusty wind. Although strong wind can push the umbrellas down with the sandbags in place, most of the time these handy weights do the trick! They are hardly noticeable on top of the stand. I filled them with pebbles instead of sand to make filling a snap. I love the handle and buckle. I have recommended these to a couple people. Shipping was free and fast! Made in the USA!

Surround Speaker Stand Ballast
February 2, 2021
Okay, so I took the pea-gravel approach. A couple of bags at the local hardware store, empty them out into a tub and do a couple of rinse runs to wash the gravel clean, then use a scoop to fill the bags - 1 person job, no problem! Bags hold speaker stands solidly in place - stands were rated for up-to 8lb speakers, but I had tipping problems which the bags solved. The stands are pocketed into corner spaces so the bags aren't really seen - just forgotten in place. In sum, these bags did EXACTLY what I wanted them to do.

Great for stabilizing plant stands
February 2, 2021
The circular sand bags worked perfectly for weighting down our 6’ tall solid steel plant stands. Despite their weight and extra plate steel on the base of the stands, they kept blowing over when loaded with a hanging basket of plants. The plants made the stands top-heavy and when it got windy on our back deck the plant and stand would blow over. Your sandbags provided sufficient mass in the right place to solve the problem.
  • Easy to work with, durable material, good workmanship.
  • The 14? diameter was a couple of inches less than what I would have preferred simply for aesthetic purposes. The base of our plant stands is made of welded steel plate in the shape of a ?+? sign and measures 16? long on each of the cross members. Having some additional size options might have allowed me to fully cover the bases, but it wasn?t a problem structurally and the bags did their jobs which was really the most important thing to me
