10 Treestand Safety Tips
API Outdoors® Alumi-Tech® Crusader Climbing Treestand
I had just purchased a bow and accessories and was looking forward to my first hunting season. I had looked at many different climber reviews and saw this one, which at the time was only 3 stars. Don't let that fool you I put this together in ten minutes and was out climbing my first tree with ease in no time. I couldn't be happier with paying almost $100 less than the others I was looking at. I would recommend this to everyone.

I would recommend this stand to anyone who's looking for a durable light weight climber. The directions that come with the stand are useless, but if you have ever had a climber before its pretty self-explanatory. This stand is truly outstanding. I was a bit hesitant buying this climber since I've been hunting out of an API Grand Slam for the last 3 years. I was surprised to find that the two were quite similar. My first time sitting in the Crusader I feel asleep!

Horrible Instructions awful customer Service
i purchased this stand for the price & the API reputation. The instructions are absolutely useless. It's actually sad that they even send the instructions that they do. There customer service has been awful. I've contacted them several times for help installing the foot straps, since they are so big on being safe. I have yet to get an answer from anyone. This has been very frustrating. Do not buy an API stand!!!!!!

Best for the money
API always made great stands and I like the fact that they use a motorcycle like chain to wrap around the tree instead of a rubber strap or wire cable as other brands do. This stand has plenty of room to shoot all angles and is easy to climb with. The stand is light and compact so it reduces the "clunkiness" when walking through the woods. The construction of the collapsible mechanism may have sacrificed some sturdiness of the platforms and I think over time the threds that the bolt skrews into that holds the middle brace in place will strip because it's aluminum. If you purchase this item you will know exactly what I mean. Overall for the price this is a good stand but would not recommend for someone on the heavier side.
