The footrest makes the stand a lot more comfortable especially for a taller person. I am 6'3" and I can sit in the tree all day with the footrest. Not sure if I could without it.

Worth every penny
Every Summit Treestand should come from the factory with one of these, it may seem like a high price for what it is but after using it compared to not having it, it is worth every penny of what it cost. Easy to install

great for the legs
I put one of these on my ultimate viper and and it made it just that much better. It's almost like sitting in a recliner when i'm up in a tree now.

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.

There are two different kinds of foot rests made by summit for the stands. One is for the regular stands and there is another for the wider stands, Im not sure which this is but I would venture a guess at this being the average size one. might want to check the summit site or call customer service to make sure before you purchase.
The Summit website says it should only be used with their aluminum climbing stands. If I were to guess, I'd say it's because the self tapping screws included with the footrest kit aren't made for tapping into steel. If your stand is aluminum, you might be able to make it work, but per Summit's instructions, it's not recommended for anything but their aluminum climbing stands. With a little ingenuity, you might be able to drill pilot holes in a steel stand and use the screws that come with the footrest, or maybe replace the screws with some that will work with steel, and it should be fine.
