Looks beautiful, but very difficult to mount
on January 9, 2010
It looks very nice, no doubt, but I have to say it was a nightmare getting it to fit on the tree. (artificial)
The problem is the "star" is very high above the spring "cup" which is what is supposed to go down over the top of the tree. This does nothing but want to fall over since there is not enough tree to hold up the star. (Which is pretty heavy, I'd estimate about a pound, and I'm not kidding.) What I had to do was take pliers to the spring part, and open it up so that the tree was closer to the center of the star instead of being 3" away. Once I did that, it does stay put.... unless someone bumps the tree and then it'll fall over.
On a natural tree it might not be a problem, but on an artificial tree it was 30 minutes of work.
