Bought this as my third climber thinking it would be like my older API stand. Not even close. Foot straps are cheap and the sections do not pack tightly together. The stand design is changed from other API stands - the metal tubes containing the chain bend inward near to where it will strap to a tree. This creates problems in climbing and straping the stand to the tree. On the plus side, the gripping chain is the usual API chain as is the zig zag design of the metal portion of the stand that actually comes in contact with the tree. This stand is moderate in weight and has good stability once you are settled in. Recommended for small to medium size trees only. Why API has screwed up its older simplistic design I will never know but if you think this is like your old API you will be disappointed. I would recommend spending a bit more and getting another type API or Summit stand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BassicallyJoe Great stand for the price
Great stand, easy to climb with. Really like the fact that you can purchase replacement parts for it if they ever wear out. Had a little difficulty figuring out the foot restraint strap when I was assembling the stand. Turns out the wrong piece was packaged with the box. Would of gave this stand only four stars because of that but I called API customer service and they are sending out the correct strap free of charge. Great customer service warrants five stars!

I had trouble myself. I only used the shoulder strap section. I put the shoulder straps in between the tree spikes and connected the 2 smaller straps on the 2nd bar up on the platform. I doubt this is right but it works. I wish they would have connected those when they ship it.
Well the chains hook to the arms of the climber with safety pins the pins won't fall out and to ease your mind if your still a little nervous once you start climbing and sit in the seat there is pressure on the pins ffrom your body weight
They can fit inside one another but the top and bottom of the different sections must be positioned on opposite ends. You have to reposition the backpack straps to make this work so you will have to do some trial and error.
people dont like the pins, and chains...but they bite into the tree and there safe and lite...those 2 things are something you cant go without...um personally my fav. stand as a climber, and with API you can climb bigger tree's in diameter with chains system
You might search online to see if you can find a few different video that show someone using this style of stand. Also, the link below is a Owner's Manual for another API Stand that has instructions on climbing: http://www.apioutdoors.com/images/s...
