Sand. It works OK on flat ground, a little wobbly at that height on

The advantage of the PVC base is that it's flat, so it can be weighted
down with just about anything you might have a job site, from a tool
box to a cooler to a bucket of dirt.
I actually have a metal stand made from the original tripod base to which
I added an adjustable metal pole. (It's actually a tent pole from when I
was in the Boy Scouts about 5 decades ago.) With the tripod base, I can
raise the light to well over 10' on flat ground. Unfortunately, you can't
weight down the base because of the slanted legs.
It was just a fun little project.
