Guys, I plan to get a rock climbing harness this season. I have read many positive comments about them.

My question is..How do you attach your safety strap to the tree? I checked Youtube, and could not find anything specific regarding it.

Thanks.

old goat...I know that the belt attachment is in the front. Does the line go to the tree waist high, off to the side?

Thanks

I hunt from a tree saddle and use a rock harness for safety. To attach it i use the safety strap included with most tree saddles and a 24K carabiner.

Oh and an 8ft section of static rope with a Ropeman 1 belay device. I can raise and lower for comfort

I use a piece of 10mm static rope with a loop on one end, stop knot in the other and a prussic with a carabiner to hook into my harness

I always fasten to the tree above my head with just enough slack to sit down. This way If you fall you will still be above the platform.

I attach in the front with a Prussic to a length of static line that runs along my right hip and is girth hitched around the tree at waist height.
