Smooth cradle / Umbrella stand

Smooth cradle

An umbrella is such a spectacular invention. For convenience, even folding ones are available. Nevertheless, no one seems to find their common problem. “Smooth cradle” solves this trouble for you. It has two grooves of different depths that help you find your umbrella a suitable position. When you want to use it again, it’s easy to find, too.
