Rated 5 out of 5 by Meridian Well made and built to last
My beardie and I are both enjoying this product and the convenience it offers. I purchased this for use with a regular Deep Dome fixture and PowerSun bulb. Even with the height of the dome lights and the 12 inch distance requirement for the PowerSun, the large stand was tall enough to work with my 40 gallon terrarium. The stand itself is made of a heavy metal material and is easy to assemble. The simplicity of the design makes it nearly impossible to break.

Rated 4 out of 5 by igottadash Stand is fine...height is an issue
I have a 12" tall terrarium, not terribly large, so I thought the small stand would work best for it. I did order the regular deep dome light as it was suggested even with this stand, in reviews of both items. However, using the smaller stand with a regular deep dome lamp, the stand is barely within a hair, high enough for the deep lamp to clear the top of the tank. Basically the lamp is sitting on the screen with the stand adjusted to it's full height. While the stand itself works fine, I'd order the mini dome if ordering the small stand.

The lamp stand is sturdy, I like the base that fits under the cage. Very adjustable. The only reason I gave it four stars is that he first one was defective. However Fosters and Smith sent me out a new one without delay and paid shipping for the faulty one to be returned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JoyceS Good quality but with limitations
The stand is good, but I do not recommend for tall cages. The stand only goes to 36 inches high. If you have a terrarium above 18 -24 inches, the stand is not tall enough to hold a dome lamp which is quite tall between the dome and hanger. Also the dome should be two inches above the hood as to not melt the plastic hood if being used with a heat basking lamp. While the stand is good, they need to make them much taller. I just upgraded to a 36 inch tall terrarium and am having issues trying to hang a light. Also, I don't think the stand can be useed with an open air screen cage because the weight of the cage holds it down so it doesn't tip. It would lift up and possible damage the screen bottom.
