The advancements in today’s treestands will blow your mind. A number of companies have moved far beyond basic and simple in their engineering design. The Tagout treestand from Advanced Take-Down Treestands is a sophisticated unit with impressive engineering in the mix. The company has truly reinvented the way you hang your treestand. The revolutionary 3-piece design makes hanging a treestand easier than ever before. You simply hang the stand “stem.” Snap in the seat. And then snap in the platform. Very slick…very simple. The stand weighs in a 16.5 lbs, measures 32″x22″, and has a load capacity of 300 lbs.

The all new LIFELINE features reflective material that is built into the line that “lights up” whenever the slightest beam of light hits it.
