Although most hall stands and hall trees have provision for umbrellas and sticks, there are stands specifically designed for only this purpose. They are usually of waist height or lower, with compartments that ensure the stored accessories stand upright. The lower sections are usually fitted with removable trays to catch the run-off from any wet umbrellas and sticks that are placed in them.
