I am totally dissatisfied w/ this product & from my experience would not even give it a 1 rating if I had that choice. Either mine was drilled & tapped incorrectly at the factory or the product is a just a waste. When the tree step was placed in the slot & the thumb screw was tightened down the step was not even straight in the device. At the offset angle the step was in, it would be practically impossible to drill it straight into a tree.

I bought this for my drill hoping it would make the screw in process easier for oak trees, and hardwoods. Because I could not keep the steps from wobbling I threw it in my junk drawer and have found drilling a starter hole in about 3/4" made installing the steps much easier. Believe the bit size was 3/8". I switched to using gorilla steps now and can install all the steps by hand with very little effort, can have steps up to 25' and strap a stand in within 15 minutes.

This product broke during the first tree step install. If it was made of a better quality material I believe it would work fine but until then save your money. The best bet I have found is to use a closed face wrench as a cheater bar to get some leverage on the step. It works pretty well but still takes some muscle.

Read all the reviews but still decided to give it a try. Like others said they do not "sit" well in the tool. The concept is great but need to get the kinks out. Thinking maybe a lock of some sort on the end to keep the step from wobbling at the end.
