I have a buddy who's looking for a Treewalker climbing stand. If anyone has one for sale please shoot me a pm. Thanks.

I would only use treewalker stand if I converted to a screw on locking pin which I am the process of doing before next season. Other than that it is my favorite stand. I have talked to several peeps who had similar incidents!

Explain what happened as I have 3. What type of failure did you have? Why no stabilizer straps on that stand?

Absolutely love the tree Walker but i did create the same straps that are used on loan wolfs that attach both sections .. incredibly comfortable.. really easy to use as well..

AccMan, pin came out. I have talked to two people over the last 5 years that had the same problem. Both times it was a pin coming out while climbing so stabilizer straps would not have helped.

Up to this incident the treewalker was my go to stand and all time favorite but safety overrides my bias towards the stand.

“Why no stabilizer straps on that stand?”

They didn’t come with the stand and at the time of purchase we’re not recommended.

P.S. the best that I can tell they were never TMA approved.

Did the pin come out or break? My pins are solid in their and can’t imagine them coming out unless yours are older and don’t have that locking piece that goes over the ends.

All three of mine have the locking pin, just like the one in your pic, and they lock tight. I don't see how they could come out, especially with your weight on the climber. The only way I could possibly see it is if the pin was inserted from the bottom of the leg instead of inserted from the top. I put tethers on all of my pins so I can't loose them, or drop them when adjusting at height.

AccMan, evidently it was not tight enough and the same problem occurred three times with three different people.

This was not user error, I have always put the pins in from the top. You would have to be pretty dumb to insert from the bottom.

Believe me I was disappointed. I normally spend 60 to 80 days in a treestand with probably 30 of those being all day sets and the the treewalker was absolutely perfect for those.

Yeah mine lock so tight it hurts my damn fingers spreading that pin lock over the pin.
