Summit Climbing Treestand Footrest Kit
HELPS THE ALL DAY HUNTS
GREAT PRODUCT. I ONLY WISH THEY CAME WITH THEIR STANDS. I WOULDN'T HAVE ANY OF MY SUMMIT'S WITHOUT IT. IT HELPS THE ALL DAY HUNTS BY ALLOWING YOU TO REST YOUR FEET IN DIFF. POSITIONS. FAST AND EASY TO PUT ON. I BOUGHT COPPER PIPE INSULATION (6' SECTIONS OF FOAM ) IN THE 1 INCH SIZE AND WRAP IT AROUND THE FOOT REST AND STAND IN PLACES I REST MY ARMS AND FEET; THEN WRAP AN OLD PART OF A CAMO SHIRT AROUND THE INSULATION PIPE, AND SNUG IT ON WITH UV BLACK ZIP TIES. HELPS REDUCE NOISE AND STRAIN ON YOUR ARMS WHEN CLIMBING. ONLY DRAW BACK IS THE PRICE. I WISH IT WERE IN THE $20.00 RANGE, HOWEVER WORTH THE WEIGHT IN GOLD WHEN ON THE STAND ALL DAY.

Good addition to a great stand
I prefer to sit in a more reclined position while I'm waiting for game, and this footrest kit adds just the right amount of length and height to put your feet and legs in a very comfortable sitting or reclined position. The footrest doesn't clamp to the stand base though, it actually attaches with self tapping screws. It doesn't mention it in the instructions, but to keep from messing up the paint, I'd highly recommend drilling pilot holes in the stand base for the screws. Other than that, it's a good addition to a great stand

I had one of these on my old Summit Viper before it was stolen. You may think it is high for what it is but it sure makes sitting long hours easier, Summit should include this with every stand they make, this will not fit the wider Summit stands like the Titan, Goliath or the 180 you will have to go to Summits website and order one which is what I had to do for my Titan stand

A must have for any Summit climber
A friend had lent his Summit stand with a footrest last season and I enjoyed the extra comfort of it so this season when I purchased a new Summit 180, I ordered the footrest to add to it and so i enjoy the extra comfort it has given. Very simple to install on the stand but I'd recommend drilling pilot holes for the sheet metal screws first.
