Bases are flimsy not very well designed. Service was good
We aren't sure if you mean bases with your review. Our bases are either made out of solid brass, aluminium, or wood. A truck could drive over them, and with just a few scratches, it would most likely be in good shape, except for the wooden version... If you meant another product, and typed base as a mistake, please let us know, we still would like to hear your feedback.

Perfect for Modern Farmhouse
I bought these bases for our new home and they’re perfect. Great quality and sturdy.'
We were very pleased with our order. The store where we usually bought our supplies for our window candles, no longer carry them. We will continue to order our candles from you. Thank you
Thank you for sending me the replacement parts I needed to fix the candle I broke at my boyfriend’s house. You got me out of the dog house. He was able to easily replace the broken piece. Thank you!
In the base, there are 2 brass contacts with 2 spikes each. These are intended to pierce the yellow wire. Following instructions, I had no luck getting the necessary contact to be made to complete the circuit. I ruined 4 bases trying to come up with a better engineering solution. After trying various combinations soldering and glue, my final solution worked 100% of the time. Here what I came up with: after inserting the wires into the base and folding them over, I skinned the top facing edge of the wire, making sure the exposed copper from each wire was not close or touching the adjacent wires. Then applying the base and tightening the 2 screws, being careful not to strip them, contact was made easily. This worked 100% of the time. The real weakness of this design is in the plastic holes that are expected to hold the screws well enough to draw down the base with the screws. Those holes should be made of metal. Here's the bottom line. We should not have to pay $50.00+ for bad engineering. Please change the design.
The design is being reworked. More on this later.
