I struggled to attach the stand to the antenna and was about to return it when my guy friend figured out how to snap it in. It's not easy, but you really have to get the top part of the stand to fit and snap into the two notches before snapping in the bottom part. Once you get it to snap in, then you can move the antenna around freely. Without proper attachment, it will be annoying to move the antenna around and to get it stand and balance. My friend also pointed out that you can mount the antenna to the wall and it would blend in against a white wall. Modern design. It's kind of big, so probably mounting it on the wall would keep it out of the way. I live near the airport, so when planes fly overhead, it knocks out reception temporarily. Lots of channels. I get more channels with this than with another well-rated rabbit ears antenna. For some reason, I cannot get the ION Television station with any antenna where I live despite the box saying you should be able to get it.
