    Nice, simple and easy to customize.

    If the pole is tall and there is wind, apart from the base toppling over (a problem you already solved) the central coupling could be stressed too much. I'm attaching a (clumsy) sketch with a possible solution using a 45degrees T coupling (which also complicates construction and difficults disassembly, but that`s the idea, ain't it?). Good job, anyway.

    That would be an addition that I would use if they had a more permanent setting, I do appreciate the input though.

    Nice job!

    If you need more weight to hold it in place, fill the base with sand or even water , works great !

    Yeah I ended up filling mine with cement but thanks for the tip and the feedback
