For the domed plastic hex bases, I use a couple of 7/8 inch outside
fender washers in the cavity of the base.  It does a good job of
the center of gravity.

For the plastic slotted hex bases with the T post, I use some small lead
shot glued into the shallow cavity of the base. It does help make the
more stable.

If the mini is still tippy, I mount a 1 1/4 inch fender washer below the
base for more weight and a larger footprint.

For the GW style flat circle bases, I don't use them but others have
multiple fender washers.
