When there is no grass outside to install the in ground base, with the NEW BASE COVER you can now use the indoor base outdoors. Simply place the menorah into the BASE COVER. You now have plenty of space inside the COVER to insert sandbags or cement blocks to add enough weight to keep the menorah safe from wind, etc. No more unsightly sand bags on the base of a beautiful menorah. The NEW BASE COVER shines like the menorah itself.
