Rated 4 out of 5 by sharp2007 Good Stand
The stand is lightweight, light on the wallet, and comfortable. My first treestand and it was very easy to use and seems like it will serve me well. The directions are very vague, especially for someone like me never having used or put a treestand together. The footstrap section especially. My saving grace was the pictures in the instructions. Overall though a great purchase.

I bought this stand for my son 2 weeks ago on Friday and received it on Wednesday. The stand was fairly easy to assemble; however, I had some problems with the foot straps. I contacted the 800 number on the stand and spoke with a customer service representative and explain my problem to her. She said it sounded like I was shipped the wrong straps and she would ship out the new Alumi-tech climbing brackets to replace the straps. I would of gave this stand 4 stars because of the climbing straps, but after a quick call to customer service, I am giving it 5 stars. I placed the stand on a tree at home just to see how it hung. The stand appears to be very sturdy. I really wont know till I get up about 25 or 30 feet to see if it will be safe enough to put my son in. From all indications, it appears it will be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet Lightest stand ever
Upgraded my stand from 31 pounds to this 20 pound stand. Big area and has great comfort. I can walk through the woods all day and find me a great tree due to the lightness of this stand. Directions are a bit hard to understand and the footstraps are cheap but overall great stand

just bought this stand on a gamble. i saw no reveiws or videos on youtube but in the long shot i bought it. very light weight, very solid, and affordable! i thought it was comfortable and think i should have no problem sitting in a tree for many hours at once. however i thought the instructions were alittle foggy with some of the steps as far as installing the foot straps but other then that its a nice lightweight comfortable stand!

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...
