If you don't have a relatively flat space to set up your stand, the angles of mine might be too steep for you
This was part of the reason that I did not use the angles at the top, and used zing-it to keep the legs from spreading. I built mine to be used at campouts with the scouts, like camporees and such. I don't always know what the ground will be like. If it has a slope to it, I can adjust the legs to get the right feel and stability for it. During the last few set-ups with my stand, it has been on uneven ground, and I haven't had any problems. I will be using it the next three weekends, helping with leader training this weekend, OA ordeal next, and a Fall Camporee the next.
