4 pack butterfly hanging basket holder
These are very pretty hanging basket holders that seem to be doing their jobs.
A concern I had was if the planter hook would slide off the holder because of how little the hook... well... hooks. The hooks do bend up just enough to keep the planters hanging there, as long as the wall or post is straight. If it gets windy? I haven’t gotten to that condition yet, but I just may take the plants down at that point. On one of my holders I put a rubber band around the end to stop the planter from sliding because I’m not 100% certain it won’t slide off. I’m going to use the tiny clear elastic bands kids use in crafts instead once I get them, so that it’s not so obvious they are there.
My opinion is I shouldn’t have to be paranoid the planters will fall off, the holders should clearly “HOLD” the planters.
One negative about these, and almost everything from China, is the cheap hardware that comes with these.
SAVE YOURSELF from a headache. Go buy you’re own zinc coated steel screws to hang these! The screws they supplied slowly strip as you screw them in. I drilled pilot holes and they still stripped. Now the planter holder isn’t completely secured to the wood post because I couldn’t get the screws in all the way. It moves and sways a little when the plant is hanging on the holder. The other planter holders got new zinc steel screws, and they work like a charm.
Craftsmanship. Each section of the holder got its helping of welding material, but I think it adds to the charm and it doesn’t look sloppy or cheaply done. It feels well made and won’t fall apart, but I’ll update the post if it does.
Do I suggest it? Yes
But before you hang it, buy new screws for the right application (Wood, concrete or drywall).
Manufacturer suggestions - hook the hanger part up a little more!
